I’m not the best selfie photographer, this we all know, so I was thrilled when I was asked to try out a selfie-stick!

It’s basically a long extendable poleย ย that you attach to your phone, and you take photos with it! It makes your arms extra long ๐Ÿ˜‰

There are a few types of selfie sticks on the market at the moment, and I quite liked this particular version because the shutter release button is on the stick itself, so there are less parts to carry around.

The selfie stick is a short stick that fits into your handbag, or manbag, and it extends to just over 1m! You charge it with the supplied USB cable, and after 1 hour of charging you’ll get approx 100 hours of fun. It connected toย your phone via bluetooth.

We’ve had a ball playing with it! The kids fought over it and my mom got quite excited about it and said she needed it for her travelling!

We were thinking that there are endless uses for it, apart from selfies, including taking photos over crowds trying to see a painting like the Mona Lisa, taking photos at a concert, spying over walls and even around corners!

Using a selfie stick is so much easier than trying to make your arms as long as possible!

It’s also an awesome gift idea for Christmas, so if you’re still trying to figure out what to buy someone that is selfie mad or travels a lot or goes to plenty music concerts… this is the thing!

You can buy the selfie stick online for R399.

They work on iOS and Android phones are available in black, pink or blue.
