Deny it as you might, the adverts are already on TV, the stores are already stuffed with Santas and seasonal stock, and the shoppers are already snapping up all and sundry in readiness for gratuitous gift giving, it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas…
But, before you panic and start contemplating a tactical assault on town, just remember the words of French existential philosopher and all-round Monsieur Misery Monger, Jean-Paul Sartre, “Hell is other people” and forget entering into the almost unimaginable horror of hitting the High Street and turn to the Easy Street embrace of the internet instead.
Yes, with infinitely more variety offered online, there’s something for everyone available this Crimble, including some things you may not have thought of. Take this little range of perfect presents for the Android lover in your life for example – Hover Petz.
Launched recently by Terox Toys and aimed at ‘adults’ over the age of 10, the range is comprised of four flying thingies that operate over RC. Gonk (orange), Jelo (pink), Kook (green) and Moosh (purple) can be flown using an infra-red remote or, more interestingly, using your Android by way of an app download. Or, indeed, they can be crashed using infra-red or Android app as, built to take the bumps of poor piloting, the Hover Petz can withstand the crash landings.
With six-way directional flight capability, plentiful play pleasing power for longer flights, the Petz’s illuminating bodies let you continue to dazzle in the dark, they recharge using USB, and even let you record your flight path to play back later on your phone.
With a retail price of £40 each, hoover up your Hover Petz here now and give someone’s Christmas a real lift this year; even if only your own!
