On the last day of school, my kids arrived home to a super fun surprise on our front porch…
I had allocated some time before they got home to put the car together and I will say that I was VERY pleasantly surprised that it only took me about 15 minutes from start to finish. That includes opening the box, finding my rubber mallet and assembling the car.
The PlasmaCar was VERY easy and SUPER fast to assemble and definitely MOMMY APPROVED!
Now, I’ve always claimed to be honest on this blog, so today I will continue that, despite my hesitiation….
The arrival home from the last day of school was definitely not all sunshine and roses. I think because the kids were so emotional AND they were hungry (it was only a half day so they arrived home right at lunch time), I had a slightly different reaction than I was eagerly anticipating.
My 8 year old daughter was very excited and she actually squealed, which was awesome. But my 4 year old son, whose emotions can get the best of him without much notice, had a complete melt down. I won’t get into too many details, but I will say that it had something to do with the fact that there was only one PlasmaCar. Yes, can you believe it, I was expecting my children to share this amazing new toy!
After some food, a rest and some Mommy time, my four year old showed his appreciaition ten fold
I will admit that I have had my eyes on these awesome looking PlasmaCars for quite some time now and knowing that adults can join in on the fun (they support up to 220 lbs) was very intriguing to me, although I wasn’t confident that my body would bend that way. So, when my four year old offered for me to take it for a spin, I couldn’t resist. And oh, the fun I did have! For a brief
ok, maybe not so brief moment in time, I hoped that he would let me take another ride.
The PlasmaCar has made a fun alternative activity for an outdoor activity this summer. Now the challenge is to clean out the basement so that there is enough room for the fun to continue when the weather gets cool…
