My son is obsessed with remote controlled toys. If he can drive it, fly it or make it move in any way with a remote control, he’s all over it.
He also started reading about space at the library. Ever since then, he’s been fascinated with space travel, planets, stars — just about anything in the galaxy.
When I learned about the #VectronInSpace experiment, I knew Joey would love to check it out. Spin Master decided to celebrate Air Hogs 15th anniversary by sending one of its products to space! That’s right. They sent a children’s toy to space. How cool is that?!
The journey took over 2 hours and reached an elevation of over 100,000 feet. They used a helium filled weather balloon to launch the toy, and when the balloon burst, the toy floated back to earth with a custom-made parachute. To view this amazing footage of the Vectron Wave’s journey, visit AirHogs.com or the Air Hogs YouTube Channel.
To help celebrate Air Hogs anniversary, we were sent this super cool space kit. There was a Vectron Wave and even some space ice cream!
Afterward, he had a whole new appreciate for the way this toy worked. He had so much fun trying to recreate the experiment. Not only was the Air Hogs Vectron Wave a fun toy to play with, but we also some physics lessons as well.
The Air Hog Vectron Wave is a hand-controlled UFO (Unbelievable Flying Object) that features altitude-sensing technology that allows you to use your body as the controller. Your hand acts as the remote control! My guy loved it and had a blast figuring out ways to make it go higher and higher.
I was surprised that it is recommended for indoor use only. I thought that would be too dangerous. However, it worked out perfectly. It’s made of super sturdy foam that doesn’t damage easily and also doesn’t make marks on furniture or walls.
Overall, the Air Hogs Vectron Wave is definitely a keeper! We had so much fun playing with it. It would make a perfect holiday gift too!
