It is remarkable how technology has come a long way. Even more remarkable is that it is constantly evolving! Although it is essential in many ways, we depend on it for everything in our day-to-day lives, including as a source of entertainment, staying connected with family and friends, work, weather, shopping, education, financials, and medical reasons. The list goes on and on.
Two of the most dependable technological devices is no other than our cell phones and computers. Sadly, sometimes we’re overly dependent on them. Myself included. This is why it hardly surprises me that all too often parents are faced with children that would rather bury their heads in a phone, tablet, or computer than to interact as a family. We’ve all discovered that social media and online games are anything but social—serving to isolate users in the real world more than to connect. This digital living is becoming a larger and larger obstacle to family ties each year. This is why Killerspin came up with UnPlugNPlay.
The purpose of UnPlugNPlay is to help parents get their children and themselves to put down the phone, pause social media, and step away from it to truly enjoy some family time. This is where their MYT4 Tennis Table comes into play. The MYT4 Tennis Table is the perfect antidote for fending off winter boredom without resorting to a sedentary lifestyle that’s effortlessly easy to do in the cooler months. It will also come in handy in the warmer months, especially during summer break when my son gets bored easily.
The set-up was surprisingly easy peasy. I love that the table is foldable and easy to store when not in use. Its portability gives me the freedom to move it anywhere for our convenience, whether it is outdoors or indoors. This state-of-the-art tennis features a wooden surface and aluminum frame to ensure sturdiness and durability. The tennis paddles and balls that came with this tennis table are also top notch, but I wouldn’t expect less from a luxury brand like Killerspin!
