A lot of us Welsh people are very proud to be Welsh, butt! Slap a Welsh dragon on an already awesome item and we are pretty much over the moon. When VQ got in touch to let me know about their limited edition Welsh Dragon Retro Mini DAB Radio I knew that Spencer would love one.
Spencer often works from home, sometimes in his pyjamas, and he loves nothing more than a cup of tea and some quality background music to get him through the working day, and to drown out the sounds of me shouting at Aria and the dog downstairs!
The Retro Mini DAB Radio comes in a variety of designs, including designer prints and the pretty awesome limited edition Welsh Dragon print. The retro mini features DAB & DAB+ Digital Radio along with traditional FM, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and a USB charge port allowing you to charge your phone/tablet from the radio.
Despite being a mini the retro mini doesn’t compromise on quality, it has a premium single ultra-wide full range 5W speaker and you can tailor the acoustics with a range of six available presets for different music genres.
If you’re looking to treat someone this Christmas, whether it be the Welsh work from home dad or the patriotic aunt, then treat yourself to £10 off the Welsh Dragon Retro Mini DAB Radio with code WALES10 at myvq.co.uk. Be quick, the code will expire at one minute past midnight on 21st December 2017.
*Disclosure – I received the radio in exchange for my honest opinions
For so long we never listened to music, I enjoy music but it just wasn’t part of our routine, kids TV took over. Aria likes to watch CBeebies while she eats breakfast, I oblige as it gives me a chance to peek at social media. The TV then tends to stay on in the background throughout the day until we switch it off before going to bed.
I missed music. Music is good for the soul. I decided that it was time to make a change, to have a dance each morning that wasn’t to Mr Tumble’s dulcet tones, to start the day with a smile.
We have now fallen deeply in love with our VQ Retro Mk II Dab radio in the most beautiful Emma Bridgewater blue daisy print*. We tend to keep the radio in the kitchen. Each morning when I am preparing breakfast with Aria we stop for a moment, we turn the radio on and have a sing and a dance. I often turn it on while cooking tea and sometimes we will pop it on during the day too, usually when Aria is ‘helping’ me carry out the chores.
Now, the retro Emma Bridgewater radio is quite special. It looks amazing which is an instant hit as far as I am concerned, but it’s also a very functional piece of kit. The sound quality is superb, it features DAB, DAB+ and FM radio, it comes with a dock which can be used to play music from your Apple device or just to charge it. One of my favourite features is the re-chargeable battery that gives you around 25 hours listening time in between charges meaning that we can take our tunes out into the garden with us. Also, the leatherette wrap means that I can quickly wipe Aria’s bubbles/hand prints off it, mammy win!
