Get the Kids Moving with Laser X was made possible with a Laser X 2 pack to review.
There is no denying that we live in an age of technology with video games capturing the attention of our kids. While not inherently bad, they do have a negative side effect. Kids start to favor indoor time with their favorite games instead of running around outside.
I’m seeing this problem in my own house. And, it has led to kids getting a bit pudgy, too.
The challenge can be to find something they will find as much, if not more fun, that gets them outside.
Meet Laser X
Laser X is laser tag brought to your home.
All-new Laser X features sophisticated electronics and optics that give players pinpoint blasting accuracy up to 200 feet. You can purchase them individually ($24.99) or in 2 packs ($49.99.) All sets work together, so the entire neighborhood of kids could have one massive laser tag game running.
Advanced sensors in the blaster know when players are blasting, being hit, running or hiding. An interactive “coach” uses this information to give players tips and tricks throughout the game.
The receiver vest keeps tracks of hits. After 10 hits, players are eliminated from the game. Players can choose to be on teams or select “rogue” mode where it’s every player for his or herself.
No need for darkness, either, as Laser X can be played in the sun or dark of night.
Watch Laser X in Action
Normally, I’d try to capture video of my kids in play. It just didn’t happen yet.
So, enjoy the video from Laser X showing the product in use.
Get the Kids Moving with Laser X
Now, my boys will get excited about anything new entering the house. The question is if it will last.
If the week after having Laser X enter the house is any indication, I think this will.
They were more than eager to strap on the sensor and hold the blaster while running around the backyard. This was happening even though it was icy in patches. Normally, they’d balk at going in the backyard when ice is around.
Given the ice, most of their play so far has been in the daytime. Once we get a good snowfall to cover up that ice, I suspect they’ll be headed out in the dark, too. After all, it is the ‘dark’ season in Alaska with the sun going down mid afternoon.
