SYDNEY, 13 August, 2014 - LG knows that in terms of gifts, dads are hard nuts to crack. They grumble and carry on, and refuse to request what they want but rather focus on what they need. But how many crummy gift cards or unfashionable pairs of socks does he really need?


This Father’s Day, LG Australia is throwing down the gauntlet to kids of all ages to pitch in and get their dad something really special by treating him to some awesome new LG gadgets – it could be one of their killer big-screen televisions, the recently-released G3 smartphone or even… the Roboking Square Robotic Vacuum Cleaner!

It’s not just us saying so… according to a 2013 report by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Aussie dads are playing an increasingly important role in the home and in their children’s lives – with 46 per cent of dads volunteering time to help an organisation or group and 59 percent of dads helping with sporting or other physical recreation activities*.

So whether or not your beloved patriarch wants to relax, play or ease the task of tidying, LG offers a range of products suited for different budgets.


The LG G3

g3Do you have the coolest dad in the world? Nope? Regardless, why not treat him to the latest and greatest smartphone in Australia this Father’s Day… The LG G3 is packed full of really intuitive, easy-to-use tech that your dad is going to love. Not only is the G3 super simple to navigate (which will come in especially handy if he’s “technologically challenged” or a little fumble-thumbed when it comes to texting), the Quad HD Screen boasts eye-popping clarity, while the Laser Auto Focus 13mp camera will take a picture in the blink of an eye. Plus, he’ll be chuffed with the streamlined design and look of it.

What’s more, just think of all the fun you can have when he lets you play on the LG G3. You can pick up a new LG G3 for RRP $799, or check out Harvey Norman, Optus, Vodafone and Telstra for some fantastic deals!



G WatchNow, if you really want to spoil your dad this Father’s Day and you want him to be the “talk of the town”, couple the G3 with the awesome new LG G Watch. He’ll be able to connect his G3 to his G Watch and receive notifications, check the weather or activate an “OK Google” voice search all without taking the phone out of his pocket! Buy it from selected retailers including Harvey Norman and Telstra stores for RRP $259.



The 84-inch 4K ULTRA HD TV with LG’s proprietary webOS Smart TV platform is so gigantic your Dad won’t know what to say. You might even seem him cry – especially when he hears the built-in speakers co-designed by Harman Kardon This massive telly surpasses “inspiring” and reaches for “speechless” with exceptionally high resolution (4 times the definition of Full HD) and incredibly accurate colour expression. Oh, and what’s that intriguing-looking Smart TV interface? Just the globally acclaimed Smart TV platform called webOS, which allows your Dad to navigate from a sports broadcast to YouTube with only two clicks, and browse an incredibly wide range of online content**. The TV is amazing for watching sport and this is just in time for his beloved footy finals - he can watch high speed action with virtually no motion blur and crystal clear clarity with LG’s TruMotion technology. Dad can even thank his father too by Skyping*** Grandpa with the 8MP camera to wish him a happy Father’s Day. The 84UB980T is an awesome beast that can be wrangled for RRP $14,999…

Too expensive? No worries. LG launched 4K Ultra HD TVs in Australia and has an exceptionally wide range of models (49-inch to 84-inch) on offer, starting as low as RRP $2,299****. Check out the less-expensive models in the UB850T series that all pack in 8.3 million pixels for amazing picture quality along with the webOS Smart TV platform. LG also has stunning performers amongst its wide range of LED/LCD TVs – 70 per cent of which include the webOS Smart TV platform.



So, Dad loves his current telly. But, does he love how it sounds? Modern flatscreens are fantastically thin but unfortunately they can lack the oompff-factor when it comes to sound quality, which is needed to make our favourite movies, shows and sports come alive. So consider getting Dad a slick LG SoundPlate or LG Soundbar to inject some adrenaline into his onscreen images. These powerful, cord-cutting devices dish out the rich audio his entertainment deserves while taking up a minimal amount of space.



Dad may be king of his castle, but the Roboking Square is the king of smart cleaning. Let him relax and enjoy some rest and relaxation after a hard day at work with this great timesaver. This is the robotic vacuum cleaner that will vacuum for him! The Roboking Square's square shaped design and extended side-brushes achieve 94 per cent corner cleaning coverage, so Dad won’t have to do a second sweep. LG's unique Dual Eye 2.0, featuring both an upper and lower camera, allows the Roboking Square to map the features of the room and distance travelled for more effective cleaning, even in low light. So there’s no reason for Dad to keep an eye on it, unless it’s just for fun or if he’s made a mess of the carpet again and needs to clean up before anyone notices. Buy the Roboking Square model for RRP $1,239 or check out to explore other models and prices.
