Holiday Season of Giveaways: Poingo Reading System

There are so many different things you can buy for your kids/nieces/nephews/grandkids/friends' kids this holiday season. (Just watch a 30 minute show on Nick Jr. and you will get at least 10 ideas. Believe me, my son wants all of them!)

But why not get them something that is fun and beneficial to their development?

Enter Poingo!

The Poingo Reading Systemis a super-fun interactive toy (that looks like a giant pen) that allows children to go on a reading adventure with their favorite characters. Of course, since it involves books, moms love it! But the great news...kids love it, too. My son and a few of his friends have really enjoyed using the Poingo pen, especially since Disney Pixar's Cars and Finding Nemo are just a couple of the fun books to choose from.

I will admit, the Poingo is very similar to LeapFrog's Tag. I have used both with my son and found them both to be reliable. But here is why I prefer the Poingo over the Tag. For starters, the Poingo is a better value (a.k.a. it's cheaper, $34.99 for the Poingo Reading System-2-book Set - Disney Pixar's Cars and Finding Nemo). Secondly, I did notice that the books that come with the Poingo seem a bit more sturdy, which means my son (and 1-year old daughter) can't destroy them as easily.

You can find the Poingo Reading Systemat all major retailers (Target, Costco, ToysRUs, etc.).

And since it is the Holiday Season of Giveaways, (1) lucky HC&B reader is going to win a Poingo Reading System-2-book Set - Disney Pixar's Cars and Finding Nemojust in time for holiday gift-giving!

Here's how to enter:
  • Post a comment here at HC&B explaining why you would like to win this prize
  • In your comment, please include your name and location (city/state/country)
  • Please post your comment by Midnight PST on Wednesday, December 10th

The winner will be announced shortly after December 10. Please check back to see if you have won, as the winner will not be contacted.

Good luck!

I would love to have this for my two nieces for christmas. I could give them the reader as a joint gift and one book each as individual gifts. Their Mom has been laid off and their Dad has had their hours cut, so Christmas will be scarce this year and Auntie Donna is going to try her best to help out.
