Gearing Up for the Holidays: Kidz Gear Review & Giveaway

With the holidays fast approaching, that usually means that there is going to be a lot of traveling being done. Since my hubs is in the military, we don't live close to family. We drive 10 hours to visit family. We make that trip every Christmas.

That drive with a 4 and 5 year old can sometimes be unbearable! They have their DVD players in the back and watch movies the whole trip. The only problem is, is that husband liked to listen to the radio. So, it ends up being a battle with the volumes!

Kidz Gear has solved that problem for me!

About the company:


Kidz Gear is about delivering a line of products and accessories with adult product features, performance and quality levels, but available at a price-point in-line with products for children.
As many parents have, I too have purchased “toy” products for my children: headphones, binoculars, flashlights — only to find they were poorly manufactured, using substandard if not even dangerous components and materials. Obviously, I was tired of purchasing toys and could not afford to give my children my “adult” versions of these products. I decided there was a need to meet in the middle with high-quality, fully functional and ergonomically designed products that are value-priced and in the sizes and styles kids will love! Thus the birth of Kidz Gear:
Grown-Up Performance, Built For Kids!
I invite you to check out all of our exciting new products and give us your feedback on any of the items or information you may find.
Thank you,
Laurie Peterson
Founder, Mom

I received the wireless headphones for review. These are the greatest things EVER! I am in love with this idea! Not only can I put these in the car for the DVD player, but I can also put them inside on the TV! 


I've had these in our office. My little one likes to sit in the office with me during the day and watch TV while I blog. Sometimes trying to type and having the TV blaring is frustrating. Once I hooked the headphones up, it was wonderful! I could work and he could watch TV with either of us bothering the other!


The headphones fit very nicely on his head. Not too big and not too small. The volume button was easy for him to use. 


Hook up was also very simple! All I did was plug the IR Transmitter into the wall and in the cable box, put a couple batteries into the headphones, turn them on, and BAM!, they were on and the room was quiet! Such a great product!


Since the ones I received were wireless, I didn't have to worry about him moving around and pulling all the electronics onto the ground. So super nice! Also, I got a carrying bag to carry the headphones and IR Transmitter in. 


It is $16.99 for the WIRED headphones and $29.99 for the WIRELESS headphones (IR Transmitter sold separately).

I'd like to win these because with 2 computers and the TV in the living room, there's always a battle between who is listening to what, not to mention who is actually trying to have a conversation! LOL

We travel a lot and the kids use headphones that are either made for kids and cheaply made or made for adults and ill fitting... neither is a good thing. To have quality kids headphones would be great. And without the wired mess!! Amazing!
