Poingo (A great gift idea!)

Just thought I would add this bit of info regarding Poingo's batteries : CLICK HERE

I have been getting a lot of page views/hits looking for Poingo battery information. Hope it helps!

Here's another great gift idea....


Poingo makes books COME TO LIFE with the touch of a digital pen!

We were lucky enough to receive our very own Poingo kit to review.

(Which was perfect since my 5 year old is just starting to read on his own.)

The kit came with the Digital POINGO pen and two oversized books(Cars and Finding Nemo).

Once we opened the box, I thought to myself...."Oh NO!" I don't have batteries.

Well, much to my amazement the 3 AAA batteries were already included

*BIG PLUS because most toys do not come with batteries and we all know how impatient kids can get waiting on batteries to be installed, right?

Anyway, we took out the first book which was CARS and decided to give it a try. I let the little man navigate the pen since he was the closest kid I could find at the moment.

All you do is run the pen across the words and the book "TALKS". (in the words of my lil man) You can also touch the pictures to make the book "TALK" and make noises such as cars zooming by!

It is not complicated to use at all.

Just turn it on.....Point to the picture or text and listen.

*Pretty Neat*

I love the fact that this is a learning tool as well as something fun for my kids to enjoy. My son has been playing with POINGO for the past few days and already recognizes certain words while rolling the pen over the text.

I would definately recommend Poingo for children ages 3-7.

Wanna buy one?

Right now you can find them at select stores such as Toys-R-Us, Wal-Mart, Target, Sam's Club, Costco and of course

Suggested retail price: $34.99

What's in the box?

Poingo Starter Set includes Poingo pen and two hardcover books as well as batteries

You can also purchase and download additional books to use with your Poingo pen.

Titles like....


The Lion King

Sleeping Beauty

Winnie The Pooh

Thanks for stopping by I will have to add you to my list of MS mom's... to whom I love.

Oh I love this idea... this is a great gift for my four year old twins ... they are really learning a lot in pre-k, but this excellent way to get them learning at home.
