We’ve had our Relay since last summer, and I haven’t been quiet with giving it rave reviews on social media and commenting on articles I see mentioning it. Anyway, I figured if it could stand up to our rugged 8 year old’s playtime, it could stand up to 95% of other kids’.
Unfortunately, I think I was a bit arrogant. She took it down to the creek with her a few days ago, and it’s shot. She claims it only got “a little bit” wet, but the strap she carries it on was soaked, and it no longer powered up by the time she got it home. I’m positive it was submerged in creek water. We’ve let it dry out for several days now and have been charging it intermittently in hopes of revival, but nothing so far.
Any other suggestions, or are we at a loss here? I’ll shell out the additional $50 to get another one if I have to, but for now, we are paying a monthly fee for something that isn’t operable. Still, I’d be happy to try something else before tossing our beloved firstborn (first Relay, that is) into the garbage.
