"Way Back When" Giveaway

Growing up I loved to read. As I got older the Famous Five by Enid Blyton were my fave books as there was mystery and suspense and a classic whodunnit plot . Perhaps that’s where my love of Murder She Wrote started! LOL! Anyway, I loved reading and my Mum ( a teacher!) encouraged it. Now that Isaac is old enough, he loves reading books and constantly wants to get on the couch next to me as I read to him.

When VTECH contacted me to take a look at their newest electronic learning product, the Bugsby Reading System, I was excited. It’s for 3-7 year olds so I had two friend’s kids test it out after looking at it myself. Here’s your preview because it doesn’t hits shelves in the U.S. until next month.

The Bugsby Reading System allows children (age 3-7) to engage in interactive and fun stories while learning important reading and language arts skills. Using pen-touch technology, kids can explore Bugsby’s magical world by simply touching the pen to the pages of the book, and listening as the story comes to life. Kids will not only learn how to read, but to love to read as their new friend Bugsby guides them through classic tales from their favorite literary and television characters including Olivia the Pig and Dora the Explorer.

The kids who played with it were 3 and 4 and enjoyed the reading. The pen was a little hard to grasp for little fingers so it’d be great for a little older kids but all in all it was an educational toy. Holler out if you love those two words in a sentence?!!!

So not only did I get one of these to try thanks to VTECH, but they’re giving my readers a Bugsby Reading System too.
