eBay WOW weekend kicks off 8am Friday
It’s another WOW weekend from eBay – deals with prices slashed by as much as 60% off. With couriers struggling your purchases might arrive a few days later than you’d normally expect but there’s still plenty of time before Christmas for them to arrive.
There are a ton of deals out there, some of them are pretty mundane products, but others definitely have the WOW factor essential if you’re still looking for last minute Christmas presents. Here are a few of our top picks:
If you’re looking for affordable tech then this is just the ticket. It’s a watch, it’s also mobile answering device in conjunction with your Android mobile. When you get a call you don’t need to fumble for your handset, the device will display the calling number and allow you to answer the call then and there. It’s also apparently a pedometer and at just £22.99 the Smart Bracelet Bluetooth Watch is about the most affordable wearable tech we’ve seen.
If you’re wondering how to entertain your children in the long dark winter evenings of the Christmas School Holidays then here’s the perfect solution. What could be better than cuddling up with hot chocolates all round to watch some family friendly films. The 10 DVD box set includes: Chill out Scooby Doo, A Christmas Story, Fred Claus, Happy Feet, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Grounded, The Polar Express, Scooby Doo Winter Wonderdog, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Jack Frost.
At £17.99 for the 10 DVD Kids Festive Box Set, it’s £1.80 per film – bargain and cheaper than many streaming media sites.
Ok, so these are on the daily deals and aren’t really part of the WOW weekend, but we liked them any way. Plug them into your iPod, mp3 player, mobile or computer and the built-in spouting spring will go up and down following the music rhythm with mulitcoloured LEDs illuminating the room. You can connect them to any device with a standard 3.5mm headphone socket and they’re available in a choice of colours.
Priced on the deals at £12.99 per set of Dancing Water LED Speakers they’re a perfect stocking filler for the music lover if you’re still wondering what to buy them.
Following the theme of the Zoomer Puppies, Boomer the Dino Robot is very sensitive and will react to being stroked and touched. Be nice though, pat him on the nose and Boomer’s eyes will turn green, which means he’s very happy. However, if you pull his tail, he will get red eyes and go on a dino rampage!
Boomer responds to motion so move your hands to make him perform tricks or follow you around and he even has an optical sensor so play on a table and he’ll be aware of the edge and won’t fall off.
Boomer the Dino Robot will set you back £59.99 so is not a cheap stocking filler, but young children will have hours of fun teaching him tricks. However if hand signals prove too much for children to learn there’s also a remote control.
An eBay WOW weekend just wouldn’t be the same without some deals on the latest games consoles and this weekend doesn’t disappoint.
First up is the inevitable XBOX ONE bundle at £299.99 including Assassins Creed Unity, Black Flag 4 Wolfenstein and Forza.
If the XBOX isn’t your thing, then maybe you’ll be tempted with the Sony Playstation 4 bundle for £349.99, which includes GTA V, The Last of US and Watch Dogs.
At the lower end of the gaming consoles how about a hand held Coral Pink Nintendo 3DS for £99.99 which comes with Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros. If you’ve got a fan of the Mushroom Kingdom who’s into the colour pink, then this is the perfect Christmas present guaranteed to keep them occupied for a few hours while you get Christmas dinner in the oven.
