I am writing this post as part of the Verizon Wireless Lifestyle Bloggers program. Being part of the program does not in anyway influence this post in anyway. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? Where did the time go? Now it is time to get some serious shopping done. Verizon Wireless can make one stop shopping a breeze. Did you know they have added several new products, just in time for the Holiday Season?
Imagine losing your youngster in a crowed place. This is a huge fear with parents but the GizmoPal can put one's mind at ease. This was just recently introduced to the Verizon Wireless website and seems like the perfect present for both child and parent.
"The GizmoPal is designed for the children anywhere from pre- to middle- school, to easily make and receive phone calls using its single button calling and Auto-answer features. Both parents and their child will have the option of Blue or Pink, and is designed for kids 4 and older. And for additional fun, the GizmoPal can play fun sound clips for kids and also read out the current time.
The GizmoPal by LG will be available starting Nov. 26 online at for $79.99. The wearable will also be available in select stores in the Midwest on Nov. 26 and in all stores nationwide starting Dec. 11. Users will be able to add the GizmoPal to their existing MORE Everything accounts for an additional $5 monthly access fee. And for a limited time, customers purchasing the GizmoPal will have the activation fee waived."
SONY X3 Bluetooth Speaker
Recently Receive this on an exciting trip to NYC with fellow Verizon Lifestyle Bloggers (More about this soon). It didn't take long for my daughter to claim it. This is perfect for the music lovers on your list. I found the Sony X3 Bluetooth Speaker to be compatable with the Bose Mini Speaker, but at a lower price range.
"Pack a punch everywhere you go with this portable Bluetooth speaker from Sony. It delivers amazing audio with dual radiators for enhanced bass, one-touch listening convenience, hands-free calling, and up to seven hours battery life.
With the Sony X3 you can connect to compatible Bluetooth devices using NFC technology and wirelessly stream rich sound or handsfree calls thanks to ClearAudio+. And with up to seven hours of battery life, it will play for the whole party and then some."
Parrot Jumping Sumo
This was one of the most fun items we checked while in NYC , as far as I am concerned. To say it had the crowd hoping would be an understatement. Imagine capturing the look on the face of those you startle with it.
"Want to jump, roll and spin like an acrobat? Live vicariously through the Parrot Jumping Sumo. Control the charismatic robot from your compatible smartphone or tablet to perform tricks or navigate a homemade obstacle course. Roll it up to 4.5 mph, spin 360 degrees and jump up to 31 inches high. Jumping Sumo can even turn 180 degrees in the blink of an eye. All you have to do is swipe your finger on your mobile device touchscreen. With its wide-angle camera, you can see what Jumping Sumo sees. Stream photos and video to your mobile device, then save them to show off later."

This ball will take your soccer enthusiast's skills to a whole new level. We should have known it was just a matter of time for something as simple as a ball to become smart. Adidas has come up with this ball, that when combined with an app, will help improve your game.
