This will most likely be one of the most wanted gifts this holiday season and after trying it, we know why. Coolreall Self Balancing Scooter: Equipped with three Gyroscopes and three Gravity Accelerators this mobile gadget is turning up everywhere you look. We’ve taken this to our son’s school and are immediately swamped by kids asking if they can try it, where did we get it or simply saying that they are asking for one for the holidays.
It’s silent, sleek and fast. You can even use it at night as it has two powerful LED lights on the front that easily illuminate your way. The unit comes in 4 colors and only takes an hour to charge and will last about 10 miles of use. Go get the mail, “walk” the dog or simply have a ton of fun in style.

Weighing in at almost 3000 pieces, this one will provide you and the family hours of building enjoyment. Then, when all is said and done, you can fight over where it ends up… the kid’s room or Dad’s office.
