Winter Wishes: Mobicam DXR Digital Monitoring System Review and Giveaway

Giveaway ends on December 7, 2011 
US residents only

I'm not sure I can think of a more suitable Christmas gift for my daughter this year than this Mobicam DXR Digital Monitoring System. With the birth of my newest grandbaby it's as though she needs eyes on the back of her head to keep track of my two very active grandsons! The two boys like to play together upstairs in the bedroom they share and it usually doesn't take long for her to need eyes upstairs while downstairs attending to the baby! I have no doubt she would appreciate placing this in the boys room to monitor them while downstairs with the baby.

Open to US residents only

The Rockboard Scooter is so awesome. I know my grandsons would love this. You have two options for having fun with this, you can either traditionally place one foot on the board and pushed with the other or you can "rock" your motion. In the rocking motion mode you actually pump the board up & down to power your movement. Get those helmets out because you may reach speeds up to 10 miles per hour! I especially love that the Rockboard Scooter is available in two sizes, one for ages 5+ and the larger version for ages 8+.
