If you have ever been on an airplane, then you too have spent countless minutes circling everything you would like to have in the SkyMall Magazine. It is here that I first found Hammacher Schlemmer. Little did I realize at the time that this company who offered all these unique luxury items had been around for over 164 years! Here are just a few fun facts and first discoveries brought to you by Hammacher Schlemmer. In 1930 they introduced the world to the pop-up toaster. Then, just a few years later they brought electric razors to the world. In 1948 they introduced the first steam iron along with numerous other firsts up until 1975 when they brought the cordless phone to the world. The name Hammacher Schlemmer is synonymous with innovation and although some of the intriguing products may appear unusual at first, they all share the common goal of meeting many special needs of customers.
I am a HUGE FAN of Hammacher Schlemmer. I trust them to provide unique items that are also of high quality and I am so excited to share my most recent experience with you! As always, the items I selected arrived within just a few business days. I love being able to order items and see them so quickly! The Carrera GO! Ferrari Champs Slot Car Race Set is a Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive and is included in their Holiday Gift Guide this year. Hammacher is known for bringing you the very best and our family couldn't wait to give this race car set a go.
As a child, I was not a Barbie girl... I loved Hot Wheels, fast cars and race tracks. I used to love the electronic race car tracks, but a lot has changed in the 20+ years since I was a kid. I couldn't believe how large the slot cars were in size. They're almost double the size of a standard Hot Wheels car and we were really excited about that!
You will need a decent amount of floor space as this track covers around 7.5' x 3.25'. My hubby never follows instructions and was still able to snap everything together perfectly. I would recommend that an adult be the one who puts this track together. I really loved the speed controllers as they are ergonomically friendly and allow you full control with just a gentle push of your thumb. There is also a turbo button you can use once you get the hang of the track. Until you get really used to the track, don't be surprised if your vehicle flies off. You do have to slow down before the bends and loops.
Although this is a toy, it's truly an activity you can enjoy as a family. We were all so excited racing one another and seeing who would win. There were tons of laughs and lots of cheering one another on. It's such a great way to spend time together bonding as a family while having a ton of fun! Plus, you don't have to even leave the house. Everyone in my family agrees, this is the must have gift this Holiday Season!!! It's perfect for kids over 8 years of age up to adults who love excitement indoors. Everyone will love this incredible race car set!
When I think of Hammacher Schlemmer, I also think about ultimate comfort, relaxation and rejuvenation. From home oxygen bars to relaxing foot massagers, you can find it all here. Now, there's a reason I love getting pedicures besides making my toes pretty, it's those awesome kneading massages the chairs provide. Hammacher offers many products that provide some of these same techniques and I couldn't wait to try them out.
The Deep Or Light Pressure Neck Massager truly provides the perfect ending to a long day. This innovative device fits comfortably around the neck and by tugging lightly on the little straps at the end, you can get it into just the right spot. I really love that it comes with two plug adapters. You can use it at home and also as a passenger in the car. It almost put me to sleep as my hubby was driving. I love that not only does it come with a remote control, it is attached to the massager which means I don't have to worry about losing it. There are 3 great settings and two different intensities which consist of kneading clockwise, counterclockwise and both then light or deep. My kneading preference varies depending on where the tension in my neck is at the time. It really gets down deep releasing any areas of tension throughout the upper cervical spine. I just love that after it goes through the full rotation it automatically shuts itself off. This is truly a divine gift for yourself or for those you love to pamper!
There are other areas of our body in need of pampering, too and the Hands Free Massager is the perfect device for all the other areas in need. This compact massager provides a true Shiatsu style massage that kneads and relaxes the muscles providing relief to any area of the body that you can wrap the belt around. It provides two wonderful settings as it moves both clockwise and counterclockwise. I LOVE that it comes with two different belt sizes. One is perfect for your arms and legs, the other is perfect for wrapping around your stomach to massage your back. There are so many possibilities that you can basically provide relief to any of your painful muscles. It comes with an adapter to use at home and in the car as well. I love that it comes with it's very own storage bag which holds all the adapters and belts as well. The best part about this massager is that it truly is hands free meaning you can use it as you are cooking dinner, folding laundry or simply relaxing on the couch. This is truly an amazing device that effectively provides relief to sore muscles. I would highly recommend it and I'm honored to include this and all the other fabulous Hammacher Schlemmer items in my 2012 Christmas Gift Guide. Any of these items would make excellent gifts this Holiday Season. You can find all these items at Hammacher Schlemmer.
