I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Duracell. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Now that Halloween is over you might be gearing up for the holidays. I know, I know, Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet, but hey, it’s late this year, so you better get a head start.
Without fail, each year it seems I always have battery operated toys under the Christmas tree and in my kids stockings. Without fail, each year I’m scrambling for batteries on Christmas morning when the kids want to play with their toys. No bueno.
Here are some tips to help with the battery operated toys on your list.
1.) Consider carefully opening toys to install batteries and then repackaging. I know, it’s time consuming, but it also means that Johnny’s robot will work as soon as he opens it! Alternatively, you can open and assemble these battery operated toys and just gift them that way!
2.) Wrap extra batteries as gifts. Not only is it an extra present for kids to open but we all know what a bummer it is to have those temporary demo batteries peter out sometime in between breakfast and afternoon egg nog. Don’t let that happen to you!
3.) You’ll need more than you think. It’s more than just battery operated toys. Batteries power our smoke detectors, tv remotes and more. You don’t want to be eyeing the TV remote batteries to power your daughter’s new hand held game!
4.) Make sure you buy Duracell Quantum batteries. It’s the worlds most advanced alkaline battery. Recognizable by it’s distinct red color, this battery contains longer lasting power than any other battery on the market. There’s even a power check indicator so you can tell how much “oomph” your battery has left!
Duracell Quantum Heroes
Duracell has also created Quantum Heroes, a documentary style video series that shines a spotlight on the incredible work of first responders and their stories of sacrifice and heroism
This year, Duracell has donated one million batteries to first responders across the country to help them power their life-saving equipment.
