More often than not, you see a child using a smartphone more than the parents do. That’s typically because the parents either gave it to them to keep them occupied while waiting in line or dining out OR because us parents don’t even realize that they have gotten a hold of it until they return it with a dead battery. No matter what the reason, somehow kids end up getting more phone time than their parents do.
While I am tempted to let my kiddos use my smartphone, I am hesitant because I use my phone a lot (checking emails, Facebook and Instagram…oh yeah and talking to people by phone or text) so I like to keep the phone on me so that I have access to it all and so that the battery won’t die. Plus, I am scared my kiddos will drop my phone and break it somehow. We were taking a family trip to Texas and I knew I would need a way to keep my kiddos entertained without driving me and everyone else on the plane crazy, so I was thrilled to be able to review the PlayMG.
PlayMG is the non-smartphone, smartphone that gives your back your phone while giving your kids the perfect, portable smart-device made just for them. It’s an all in one entertainment system specially designed for kids. It is about the same size as most smartphones on the market, and runs on the Android operating system.
WiFi access to Google Play lets kids download an endless amount of apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, books and so much more! Even better – PlayMG doesn’t require an expensive monthly data plan. I downloaded a bunch of FREE apps from Google’s playstore but if your kiddos are going to purchase apps, you can manage app spending through a prepaid SpendSmart MasterCard. This ensures that your child won’t rack up a huge bill, and it teaches them about budgeting money at the same time.
PlayMG’s “Digital Wallet” and “Remote Trust” notification functions are entirely new to portable gaming. It provides An Optional Email Notification For Remote Monitoring and young people get to enjoy unlimited apps and parents get to “trust but verify” through weekly email usage reports.
The PlayMG has freed up my smartphone and kept my kiddos entertained…so it’s a win win! It also makes for a great Holiday gift! Click here for more information and/or to buy it. PlayMG can also be purchased at select Target stores, Amazon and Toys R Us.
