A Fun Way To Zip Around Town!

Thank you to our sponsor Best Buy.

NYC kids finally went back to school this week, and the community is buzzing with students ready to hit-the-ground-running. Like many kids, if it has wheels, my children will ride it. We’re always on the lookout for fun, and fresh ways to get around town – and the Hover-1 Journey Electric Folding Scooter is the newest ride we checked out. 

Here’s the scoop: 

Designed for ages 14 and up, this super sleek, lightweight electric scooter has a range of 16 miles before it needs a charge. It reaches up to 14 mph and can hold up to 220 lbs. The Hover-1 Journey Electic Folding scooter is designed to tackle hills at angles of up to 15 degrees effortlessly – making riding almost anywhere, possible. 

Not just for city kids! The scooter’s 8.5-inch tires offer excellent stability, handling rough terrain smoothly. The foldable design has a minimal footprint, providing a convenient and exciting form of transportation.

Bosch AutoAir 500 Dishwasher
  • A little fresh air equals a lot more dry! AutoAir™ automatically opens the door at the end of the drying cycle, allowing moisture to escape and fresh air to circulate for better drying results. (Disclaimer: compared to Bosch Dishwashers with PureDry.)
  • PrecisionWash, employs intelligent sensors that continually scan and check the progress of dishes throughout the cycle, while powerful spray arms target every item of every load, for the ultimate clean. 
  • The roomy interior profile easily accommodates 16 place settings, and the Flexible 3rd rack adds space for cooking utensils and more.
  • The Sanitize Option reduces 99.9% of bacteria with a hot-wash rinse for sparkling clean and sanitized dishes. Super handy with a baby or kids in the home! 
  •  The quiet operation (44 dBA)- incorporates 18 unique sound-reducing technologies such as multiple insulation layers, grindless food filtration, and a sound-absorbing base.
  • The flexible 3rd rack can accommodate all those bulky odd-shaped items. Adding the 3rd rack with its adjustable tines can create the right fit for deep, tall, or uniquely-shaped pots, pans and more.
