Space Scooter makes a great Christmas gift

Space Scooter X580
Developed in the Netherlands, the Space Scooter X580 is one of the most unique scooters on the market.

The scooter craze is real and as Christmas is approaching, now’s the time to get in the game. One of the more innovative models – the Space Scooter X580 – takes a traditional cruising scooter and adds a twist. Instead of the traditional kicking needed to propel you forward, Space Scooters allow you to keep both feet on the deck and use a pump and go motion to keep you on the move.

The unique design comes from the Netherlands where one in three kids own a scooter. Instead of flooding the market with more of the same, Space Scooter wanted to do something different – help people get around while also keeping them active. Enter the pump and go action, which allows you to pedal the scooter. The X580 can also adjust to a normal mode where you can still use your foot to move you forward.

Space Scooter X580 pump and go
A unique pump and go action makes the Space Scooter X580 great for getting around while getting exercise.

The X580 has built in safety features that make it great for kids. The sturdy board is built to hold people up to 200 pounds and it’s fully ASTM compliant. A wheel safety lock prevents it from rolling backward, keeping you upright and on the move. Fitted with a hand break and kickstand, the X580 is easy to store. The scooter simply folds up to fit into tight spaces and to make it easy to carry.

The X580 is available now at SportsUnlimited.com along with a wide range of other scooters. You can also check out the junior model, the Space Scooter X360, or the exclusively designed Space Scooter Lionel Messi.

With over 1 million sold worldwide, the Space Scooter already has a devoted following. The Christmas season is a great time to join in the fun!

Top 5 Sports Toys for the Holiday Season

The Top 5 Kids Sports Toys for the Holiday Season are sure to keep the little ones on your list active, happy, and social, all year long! From the latest indoor basketball games to the coolest snowball shooters on the block, this list of our favorite new toys this year will definitely give you some great gift ideas.

The 2012 holiday season is upon us, and kids everywhere are clamoring for the latest video games, Smartphones, tablets, and digital devices to keep themselves technologically superior to every other kid in their grade. But do we really want to keep them plugged in and stuck inside all winter long?

How about going with a different gift…something that will challenge them, get them moving, and let them unplug from the digital universe?

Our favorite gift ideas this holiday season are fun and engaging for any age, and are sure to keep them busy, active, and social, long after they’ve beaten and tossed away that new video game!

1. Franklin Bounce-A-Bucket Basketball Game

This in-home arcade game, and its little brother the Bounce-A-Bucket Junior, is one of our all-time favorite games to play around the office, and it’s sure to become your little ones’ new fave too! Simple to play but difficult to master, like all great games, this arcade challenges you to bounce the mini basketballs off the trampoline target and into the tiers of nets, racking up as many points as possible before time runs out. With real arcade LED electronic scoring and announcer sounds, the action never slows down for a second!

The Bounce-A-Bucket is easy to set up in a game room or on any table in the house, and quickly folds back down again for storage or travel. We recommend it for kids age 6 and up, but watch out, because it’s a ton of fun for adults too…trust me.

2. Franklin Youth MMA Standing Speed Bag

Easily one of the coolest new kids’ sports toys on the market this holiday season, the Franklin MMA Standing Speed Bag lets your little guy or gal channel their inner Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, or Randy Couture, to practice combinations and get active in a safe, fun environment! Bringing the Octagon home, this inflatable speed bag attaches to an adjustable and flexible rod, with a water-filled, spring-loaded base, so they can keep striking consistently, without moving the base or tipping it over.

Easy to adjust from 36″ to 46″ high, so it grows with them, the speed bag comes complete with padded MMA gloves and an inflation pump. We think it’s the perfect gift for really active kids, and since it’s simple to set-up almost anywhere and keeps them focused and moving, it’s just as good for parents too!

3. Stiga Table Hockey Games

A timeless favorite that has only gotten better with age, the latest table top hockey games from Stiga are as fun for kids as they are for parents! Just like their big brothers in the arcades, these bar-controlled ice hockey games put you right in the heart of the action, dribbling, passing, and shooting with incredible precision, as the competition on the other side of the table tries to stop you in your tracks.

The classically designed Stiga Stanley Cup Table Hockey Game is the officially licensed NHL table hockey game, durably built with realistic plexi shields and score-keeping. There are even puck ejectors that keep the action moving.

But for even faster hockey action, check out the Stiga High Speed Table Hockey Game, featuring new “ice sheet” technology that turns the speed up a notch. Perfect for slightly older kids, this advanced table hockey set really challenges you to see who has the fastest hands.

4. Wham-O Arctic Force Snow Crossbow

Your kids will be the dominate power in every neighborhood snowball fight this winter, with the advanced weaponry of the Wham-O Arctic Force Snow Crossbow! While their friends are packing snowballs, winding up, and throwing them the old fashioned, slow-go way, your kids will quickly load up this crossbow with a perfectly crafted snowball, lean back on the easy-pull handle, and launch it up to 60 feet, hitting their targets from anywhere in the yard!

We’ve had some fun with these guys around the office, after the most recent snow fall, and they’re even better in action then we thought. Fun and safe, these advanced snow toys are great for older kids, around 8 and up, and get them outside, enjoying the snow and making lifelong childhood memories with their friends.

5. Franklin Shoot Again Indoor Basketball Hoop

This ingenious new door-hanging basketball hoop has absolutely everything you’d ever need in an indoor basketball set! First of all, it attaches to almost any door in the house, turning their bedroom or game room into a full basketball court, for intense tournaments whenever they want. Second, it easily and securely adjusts up and down, making it perfect for kids of any age, and also letting it grow with them as their skills advance. Finally, and probably most obviously, it’s got a unique automatic ball return system built in, which sends every shot right back to them for non-stop action! The ball return even rotates, so they can keep shooting from different angles around the room, changing up the game and honing their shot accuracy with repetitive practice.

Durably made, with an authentic backboard, net, and rim, and enhanced with realistic announcer sounds and LED electronic scoring in the backboard, this indoor basketball hoop makes them feel like their favorite NBA pros, all in comfort of their own home. Honestly, I just wish Franklin had come out with this when I was a kid!

Holiday Gift Ideas from Sports Unlimited

The holidays are a time of generosity, reflection, peace, love, and general merriment; a chunk of the year when we all smile a bit wider and laugh a bit louder. And ok, for some people out there, that’s exactly what this time of the year is about.

Holiday Shopping Madness

But let’s be honest here…for the rest of us, the holidays are usually about scrambling from store to store, dogging clerks, other customers, and run-away shopping carts, searching desperately for “the best holiday gifts” for our kids, spouses, parents, family, friends, co-workers, mailmen, and even our mother-in-laws. At a time when every movie on the tube and song on the radio tells us to “have good cheer” and “believe in miracles,” we find ourselves in mile-long lines, trapped in noisy department stores, loaded down with pounds of toys and trinkets, trying desperately not to cold cock the random person in line ahead of us.

Now I don’t mean to sound jaded or cynical here. I love the holidays as much as the next person. I’m just saying that with all of the stress that comes with generosity, the true meaning of the holidays can get lost in the sauce. I just think we’d enjoy this time of year, have more time with our families, and really find some peace during the holidays if we could get all of our gifts and stocking stuffers easily, and without venturing out into the craziness that is holiday shopping season. Well, guess what; that’s exactly why we, at Sports Unlimited, created our all new Holiday Gift Finder!

Sports Unlimited Holiday Gift Finder

This all new Widget and our latest gift sections do the work for you, weeding through our huge selection of sporting goods and apparel, to bring you just what you’re looking for; the perfect holiday gift ideas! Organized to help you find exactly what you need…or to give you gift or stocking stuffer ideas you’d never have through of, our Gift Finder has it all for everyone on your list.

  • Gifts for Him: Instantly find the coolest athletic apparel, fan gear, or sports gear gifts for your boyfriend.
  • Gifts for Her: Get her the coziest fleece jacket or winter gloves without awkwardly roaming the stores this year.
  • Gifts for Kids: Fill the bottom of the tree with incredibly fun Franklin sports games, sleds, and air hockey tables for the kids without a trip to the toy store!

We’ve even created sections full of gift ideas for the sports fans or athletes in your life. We have the latest gear and apparel for lacrosse, golf, soccer, field hockey, football, baseball, basketball, and even hiking and mountaineering! Whatever they’re into, whatever your budget…the gift finder at Sports Unlimited will get you through your shopping list in no time…with no stress.

And don’t think for a second that we built all of this just to fill it with clearance items, slow-selling stuff, and discontinued products. We took our time, researching our most popular products and highest selling gear at every price point, in every category, for every customer, to bring you a gift finder that actually finds gifts they’ll love. So this year, take a load off, skip the stress, get the gifts out of the way, and really enjoy the holidays for the first time in a long time.
