Brookstone Land and Sea Rover
For the past couple of years since Cullen was about 4 he’s been asking for some form of app controlled device. He just turned six this year and we decided he was finally old enough to have his first rover. With so many different options on the market you can say I’ve become pretty familiar with app controlled devices. I’m even more familiar with my child and knew I needed something rugged that would withstand a six year old boy! When I came across the Brookstone Land and Sea Rover it was a no brainer. Surely if it held up to land and sea it would hold up to Cullen!
Call it a Mom’s instinct but my decision was the perfect one. He doesn’t currently have a fancy iPhone or Android for app control, as he isn’t old enough for one of those yet but we let him use the app on our phone. He navigates the app and rover like a pro so it’s definitely easy to use. I will also note that the box states for ages 14 and up but we do not seem to have an issue with Cullen being 6 and operating it.
The Brookstone Land and Sea Rover includes:
- Rover: Cruise around on land, or bring your adventure into the water.
- Antenna: Water-resistant and ready for anything. Take Rover from land to water and back again – it’s fully water resistant and floatable, and has a 150-foot wireless range, so it can pretty much go anywhere and do anything!
- Headlights and underwater LEDs help you see where Rover is going
- Requires 6 AA Batteries (Included)
Fins on the wheels act like flippers to propel Rover through the water. Rubber ridges in the center of each wheel provide traction on land and help protect the fins from hazards.
Digital Camera rotates above and below the waterline and records videos and still photos of all your adventures. View videos and photos from your missions in real time with the free Rover App for iOS and Android devices.
Brookstone is a nationwide specialty retailer offering an assortment of consumer products that are functional in purpose, distinctive in quality and design and not widely available from other retailers. Brookstone first introduced itself to the world in a small classified ad selling “hard-to-find tools” in Popular Mechanics Magazine. The year was 1965.
From the beginning, quality of product, quality of service, and quality of people have been a hallmark of Brookstone. The first catalog consisted of 24 black-and-white pages, with detailed, no-nonsense information on features, capabilities, measurements, materials and anything that would help the customer with his or her buying decision.
