Today, I am sharing Ollie as part of my holiday gift guide. You may be wondering what exactly Ollie is....if so, check out below.
It is no shock or surprise to anyone that kids today want and ask for electronic gadgets. My eight year old is asking for an iPod and my son who is eleven is starting to talk about the need for a iPhone. And, honestly, I don't have an issue with them wanting or having these types of products (well, maybe not the iPhone quite yet). The reality is, it's the way of the world.
While I accept the desire for gadgets, at the same time, I am still a big believer in the need for play. This is where Ollie comes in as a perfect play solution for children who enjoy the gadgets. Ollie is a little robot who works in conjunction with your favourite device.
Ollie is the coolest item on the world's top tech toy shelf from Sphero. Ollie is app-controlled robot who is designed to perform tricks.
My son (11) is heavily into doing tricks with his scooter or bike, so Ollie is a great fit with the way he thinks and plays. He has had a blast playing with Ollie and enjoys showing off how he can control it with the app on our iPad. What I love most about Ollie is how it couples his love for electronic devices, with his love for stunts. Ollie gets Matthew out from behind a screen and laughing over what Ollie can do.
We are really impressed with Ollie and took a look to find out more. We found that we can purchase additional accessories to amp up the fun even more.
