DadDoes talks tech for all

Some months we talk toys for the kids and in other months we look at tech for the adults. This time we mix it all together and provide some great toys and tech for every age range.

Often it seems like technology gadgets distract us from paying attention to the real world around us. In contrast, the 5Star Responder is a gadget that provides safety and peace of mind.

Simply press a button and you are instantly connected with the 5Star Urgent Response network of Certified Response Agents. Perfect for kids or adults, with 24 hour/365 day access to trained emergency response professionals, help is never more than a button push away.

5Star can get you help when you need it, but not being distracted while driving is a great way to avoid needing help. The Griffin SmartTalk Solar BlueTooth Speakerphone allows you to keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel while talking on your phone. The SmartTalk mounts on your windshield and is powered by the solar cells on the back of the unit. Safe and green technology is something that people of all ages can get behind.

When driving a car you want to be safe, but when driving a remote controlled car you want to have fun! The Air Hogs R/C NASCAR Replicas will provide driving fun for both young and old NASCAR fans. These 1:24 scale replicas of real NASCAR stockcars finally let you live out your dream of being a NASCAR driver, without the danger.

Are your grandkids more into riding than driving? Get them spinning, drifting and sparking with the Razor FlashRider 360. Initially, this trike looks like a Big Wheel, but the 360 degree back casters and spark bar prove this is a whole new ride. With the ability to do full 360 spins and shoot out sparks, the grandkids will never want to come inside this summer once they ride the FlashRider 360.

That’s all for now — have fun, be safe!
