I cannot think of a more perfect gift for a kid than a sweet drone robot! These Parrot MiniDrone Jumping Sumos are on sale from $120 down to $49.98 for the refurbished models. That original price actually represents the original refurbished price as you would pay much more for a new model. Receive free shipping as your order is over $25.
There are two colours to choose from - white and black - as the khaki brown has already sold out. Each drone has its own distinct style and look with red flame-like accents on the black and a green alien-like face on the white. It looks like they have different personalities actually!
These drones are absolutely sick to play with. You can pilot them via Wi-Fi and a free downloadable app for your iOS or Android device. The robots are tricked out to be little stunt vehicles. The little drone can leap over 2.5 feet, roll all over the place, and do plenty of other feats. They have built-in accelerometer and gyroscope sensors for ultimate control
Each Jumping Sumo comes with a rechargeable battery that provides 20 minutes of continuous play. They have built-in cameras that will live stream video to your device. The free app you download also allows you to take pictures and record videos from your device or from a USB thumb drive (not included)
Now, if you were to buy one of these drones new, you would pay:
- $199.95 @ Chapters Indigo
- $199.95 @ Apple Canada
- $199.99 @ Staples Canada
Essentially, you are receiving 75% off the original retail price of these drones just by catching the refurbished models on a sweet clearance sale.
These are really popular devices and make great gifts for kids. Rather than a monster truck, why not buy your kid a drone that can roll, jump, and race. Your child can also record all the action and watch it later. It is a really fun toy that would make an amazing gift for kids and big kids.
I wanted to note that two Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spiders are on sale as well. The Blue Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider and the white Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider are on sale from $90 down to $29.98 each. They are also worth more than their original refurbished price and make an excellent gift for kids.
