MOTA Drones Streak through Toy Fair

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

You made it through the Big Easy’s Mardi Gras, or maybe you’re gearing up for the Grammys in L.A., but if you’re in New York City this week, you’re probably wishing for temps out of the single digits.

Toy Fair could be enough to warm your heart. It’s one of the largest toy shows in the world, and we’re there with our newest just-for-fun drones!

One of them, the world’s littlest, even goes on an adventure. In an illustrated story we’re showing at our booth, JETJAT Nano™ takes off exploring. He has several airborne scrapes before his family finds him again.


It’s what Dr. Seuss might have written had The Cat in the Hat flown a drone on his own, and not too different from the rave reviews for Nano in WIRED magazine, Amazon, and elsewhere!

You can create your own Nano story: test fly the little guy right there, or take his newer brother, JETJAT Nano-C, up for a spin.

Think Nano plus a camera, making Nano-C the world’s smallest,lightest video drone.

Add a few more gumballs and you’ll get JETJAT Live-W. It’s small enough to land on your palm but smart enough to record live streams in hi def for a thrilling bird’s eye view of the show floor.

We’re also showing off our many other premium toys such as the Kendama wooden ball game of skill, fire truck engines that shoot real water, ultra-realistic construction trucks, and foam play and puzzle mats for the very young.

If you want to play with any of them, better hurry. The show opened this past Saturday and runs only through tomorrow, Tuesday. We’re in booth 4989 on the first floor of the Javits Center.

 

 

New Drones Landing at CES!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Hope everyone had a happy turkey day and profitable Black Friday / Cyber Monday!

This holiday season we’re asking Santa to fly the world’s smallest, lightest drone, JETJAT™ Nano, to every household. “FUN FUN FUN!!!” wrote one customer over at Amazon, where it’s been flying out the doors faster than Santa’s sleigh.

Free Fly Safely! Poster

Our little Nano packs outsized performance in an über-small package. It gives everyone the thrill of flight, so we also launched Fly Safely! to encourage drone etiquette. See how to tread the sky lightly; download our nifty free infographic poster!

Now for the sneak peek: With New Year’s approaching, we’re excited to be jetjatting off to North America’s premier consumer electronics show, CES Las Vegas, Jan. 6 – 10.

We’ve cooked up a smörgåsbord of über-slick drones to demo, from powerful little personal flight machines to commercial-grade workhorses capable of autonomous missions.

Here’s a sneak preview of one:

If you’re at CES please stop by our booth 72749 in the Sands Expo. We’re right on the main aisle.

Meanwhile don’t forget to show off your JETJAT Nano piloting skills to your friends!

Forget Area 51, JETJAT Nano has taken to the Texas skies!

IMG_0042_b

After many late nights perfecting our latest and greatest gadgets and toys, a lucky few of us have decamped to Dallas to show some fun products at the Fall Toy Preview, including the world’s smallest, lightest drone: MOTA JETJAT™ Nano!

The show opens today at the Dallas Market Center and runs through Thursday. It’s a who’s who of the toy business.

If you’re at the event, stop by our booth #13-3331 and test fly JETJAT Nano for yourself! It makes the fun of drone flight possible for almost everyone.

If you prefer more traditional pleasures, we have just the item for you! Kendama was a classic form of entertainment and test of skill in old Japan. And now MOTA ‘is bringing fun times back, YEAH!’ (in our best Justin Timberlake Impression; sorry).

Kendama’s catching on big time at a schoolyard or park near you. Think you‘ve got what it takes to beat our team members? Challenge us to a match at the show!

While some of us get to have all the fun at Fall Toy Preview, others are back home beavering away on CES in January. It’s the largest consumer electronics show in North America, and we’ll have tons of cool new products for it.

Meanwhile, here’s to prosperous fall and spooky Halloween for all!

MOTA Heads to Japan!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Japan’s largest consumer electronics distributor, Tama Electronics, for our wireless Charger for GoPro and other products. Japan is one of the largest consumer electronics markets in the world, and Tama has a long history serving Japan’s many specialist electronics retailers. We look forward to selling our products in Japan, now and for a long time to come!

Stay Cool with FanFan

Nothing beats the agony of seeing summer come and go so quickly…. Unless you live in warmer regions and wake up sweating to fall’s 90+ degree weather. The sleek new MOTA FanFan cools down you and your gadgets. Runs off your laptop or phone, including Apple Lightning. If you haven’t gotten yours yet, then good luck staying—or even looking—cool!

 

Everything On the Go

On the topic of cool gear/hot weather, if you’re a GoPro user you’ll want to pack along some power with your HERO 3’s/4’s. Take them for a spin while whitewater rafting or capture the rush that comes with parachuting from a plane. Every HERO needs a sidekick and MOTA has just that with MOTA Wireless Charger for GoPro. It’s the only charger that juices up the camera in its housing without need of a wall  outlet. How cool is that? Enough to score an “Excellent” rating from CNET. They recommended it for all serious GoPro users, “well worth the investment for keeping your camera powered up wherever you are”.

 

#feelingthelove

A big THANK YOU, too, to all the backers and support during our crowdfunding. We are all very excited about this charge and are humbled by high-scoring reviews. Stay tuned for more cool new products on the way, no matter what the weather. They’ll be here faster than a presidential candidate can say “super PAC.”

Father’s Day Flash Sale!

By | Events, Fun, Product | No Comments
Did you know Father’s Day was invented by a woman? More than 100 years ago Sonora Dodd proposed a day to honor fathers. Her idea spread throughout America but wasn’t recognized nationwide until 1966.

Ms. Dodd was partial to roses for Father’s Day. This year Americans want consumer electronics for our dads. We’ll spend about $2 billion on Father’s Day gadgets, more than on sporting goods and home improvement tools combined.

And MOTA’s just made it easier for you to get the perfect gift for your dad or anyone in your life.

Visit our shop for some incredible prices on a selection of products in our first-ever Father’s Day Flash Sale! Read More

By | Product | No Comments

As the adage goes: April showers bring May flowers. But just as not everyone can count on rain, not everyone always wants flowers. With Mother’s Day around the corner, what’s the best gift?

According to the National Retail Federation*, the average American family will spend $172.63 on moms this year, up from $162.94 last year. Even in our high-tech age, 80 percent of families will purchase a plain-vanilla, if loving, greeting card. Boring!
