To me, the best kind of surprise to give the kids is the one you know they're going to love, but they didn't ask for and don't have a clue that they're getting! This Christmas, my tween who loves to skateboard will be getting a RazorX Cruiser Electric Skateboard (lithium-powered) with a remote control. It's unlike anything he's ever had before, and I know he's going to flip (haha, I mean that figuratively, not literally, though he might be excited enough to do that too).

And yes, I did say remote control. Crazy, right?? Crazy cool! I admittedly am not a young girl, but I am a young grandma, and I've still got a lot of fun left in me. No way I'm missing out on the opportunity to try this board. I won't be taking it around the neighborhood like my boys will be (oh no sir, I will not), but I will be taking it for a cruise around the park (where they have these awesome flat sidewalks that will ensure I have a smooth ride).
It was hard for me not to start it up and try it now. It was also a bit difficult for me not to blab to my grown-up kiddos that I got this for the youngest, but they might mention it (on accident) this weekend when we are all together, so I couldn't risk it. My daughter will probably see this post (yes, she did discover my dau ghter...intentional space so she couldn't find out what I was gifting her trick, so I can just type 'daughter' the right way now), but she won't tell. :) She's just looking around my blog because she is considering starting one of her own. I hope she does, it will be exciting to see her thoughts in print, now that is about to become a mama too.
Hit your perfect cruising velocity with the variable-speed control on this versatile cruiser, then lean into the lithium-ion-powered, carve-and-turn skateboard action. 29.7” (754 mm) deck length and high-quality, 5-ply maple deck deliver a lightweight, responsive ride, perfect for cruising.
The look of this board is sleek. Nothing uber fancy (which my son doesn't like) but a classic look (which he does) that will stand out for its performance and style. Razor has been under our Christmas Tree for many years, but I thought we had everything we wanted from them already in our house...until I saw this electric skate board!!! Honestly, I never even thought to gift one of these boards to any of my children. Don't get me wrong, I love it, it was just a gift idea that never came to mind. Now that I have thought of it though, I'm excited, giddy, gleeful that I did, because I already know this is going to be the jackpot, squeal, I'm-so-happy-to-open-this gift of the holiday season. Jackpot. Win. Oh yeah!
With our soft-start kick activated technology, the motor ramps up slowly, reaching top speeds of 10 mph, and slows to a stop with the pull of your thumb. Even when you’ve run out of battery juice, this board shifts into manual and performs like a normal skateboard without interrupting your fun flow.
Virtually maintenance free, our kick-to-start, 125-watt, geared, rear-wheel-drive motor delivers a smooth, responsive ride without alignment issues, chain or belt. It’s power you can count on for electric skateboarding action at speeds up to 10 mph (16 km/h) for up to 40 minutes of continuous use.
And here's one more picture, so you can see the start-up switch. I just cannot get over how nice this board really is... I looked up the ratings on it (everyone does that nowadays) and saw it got ALL five-out-five ratings from customers who bought it. I can't wait to add my review, which I will do very shortly after Christmas Day.

Learn more about the specs, and other key details on this board by visiting the Razor website. You'll also find some videos over there, that will let you see the skateboard in action. I think this is a GREAT idea for a "Santa Gift," which is what we call the 'big' or 'best' gift of the year for the youngest one (the only one still in school out of the 4 kids) even though he's long past the days of believing in Santa. ;) To be truthful, I still put 'from Santa' on my grown kids gifts too. Some habits are hard to break, and I don't wanna break 'em anyway. 😊
Help Santa Clause out this year, and bring home the RazorX Cruiser Electric Skateboard.
I'm willing to bet that the person on the receiving end of this gift, will sure be glad you did.
