Thank you to GOTRAX™ for providing the HOVERFLY Hoverboard for review. You can see this product plus more in our Holiday Product guide. All opinions are my own.
My kids have been wanting a hoverboard for a long time. When I got the chance to review the GOTRAX™ HOVERFLY hoverboard, I knew they’d be happy. But would mom be happy?
That would be a YES! Mom is also happy. 😉
GOTRAX™ HOVERFLY hoverboard has magically changed my kids’ minds about doing their chores. Hmm. Maybe I should have invested in this sooner. In addition to all the fun riding around the house, the kids are now grabbing a mop and multi-tasking. I like their way of thinking.
GOTRAX™ recently launched its science-inspired line of HOVERFLY hoverboards, the HOVERFLY and HOVERFLY PLUS, UL certified self-balancing scooters that allow users to accelerate, stop and steer with a simple shift in body weight using advanced gyroscopic technology to provide the “weightless” feeling of hovering.
The hoverboards are just the beginning of a line of electric rideables and accessories the brand says will become increasingly innovative as they are released, accompanied by science and space-themed branding designed to encourage a sense of learning and discovery for children.
And I will have to say, I also LOVE riding on it. My kids are constantly afraid that I’m going to break a hip. Yes, they think that I’m that old. HA I did wobble a bit when I first stepped on and attempted my first maiden voyage but I quickly got accustomed to it. The trick, for me, was riding down the hallway so I could use the walls to help balance. Now granted, I’m not as good on the hoverboard as the kids are but I still have fun riding around my house.
It’s already getting cold here so we’ve been riding it around in the house more than outside. We did have a nice day, though, where we grabbed some footage.

I would definitely recommend the GOTRAX™ HOVERFLY hoverboard if your child has one on their wish list. It does have this mom’s approval.

My boys have asked many times for a Hoverboard but I’m afraid they’ll end up with multiple broken bones. I may have to give in and get them one. ehhhh … what’s a broken arm or two? right?
