Some kids are easier to shop for than others. They’re into dolls or books or sports – shopping for them is pretty straightforward. But what about kids who are into science and engineering? Shopping for them can be a bit trickier. Toy stores don’t usually have a science aisle.
If you’re shopping for a future scientist or engineer this holiday season, then I have the perfect gift idea for you – an interactive technology toy called VERVE 2. VERVE 2 is one of the sponsors of this year’s Holiday Gift Guide, and today we’re giving away TWO of them! Make sure you check out my review of this awesome toy!
About VERVE 2
Unlike other interactive technology toys, VERVE 2 requires no programming or electronics knowledge to set up and gives users the ability to control a computer or the Internet with eight different sensors to do things such as play favorite games or applications, easily send texts and emails, or connect directly to websites. Ways to use VERVE 2 could include: turning bananas, apples, or any other fruit into a musical instrument; making a gigantic video game controller that you step on to play; playing Angry Birds with an actual slingshot; playing Guitar Hero with a 2 x 4; and making a burglar alarm that sends the user a text when their parents enter their room! If you can imagine it, you can make it!
The VERVE 2 Starter Kit works right out of the box and comes with:
- VERVE hub
- VERVE Sensors: pushbutton, light, turn, touch with 2 alligator clips, motion, magnet, temperature, and sound
- 8 connection cables
- Mini-USB cable
- 4 extension cables
- Flash drive with software, users guide, and 2 starter game apps
- Quickstart guide
Two lucky readers will win a VERVE 2 (retail value $119/each).
