PlayMG Handheld Android Wi-Fi Gaming System Giveaway (Holiday Gift Guide)

 

If your children are anything like my daughter, chances are they are constantly asking to play games on your smartphone.  My 9 year old daughter wants a cell phone of her own so she can play games, but there is NO WAY that is going to happen anytime soon.

I already have an Android phone and tablet, so I was super excited when I was given the opportunity to spread the word about PlayMG mobile Android handheld gaming system in time for the holidays!

PlayMG is specifically designed with young children (tweens and teens) in mind - making it the perfect electronic device for my two children (ages 9 and 12 - almost 10 and 13).  In fact, my children are already fans of the PlayMG owners/partners, Olivia Holt from Kickin' It and basketball all-star Kyrie Irving.

  

I love it when stars that my children look up to are involved in positive activities, products and causes for children!  Not only have Olivia Holt (Disney) and Kyrie Irving (NBA/Cavaliers) joined PlayMG as partners/owners, they are now fully integrated into the product experience with a new app recommendation engine and weekly app recommendations, including a widget on the home screen. 

The PlayMG is an all-in-one handheld mobile entertainment system specifically designed for young people who do not have a smartphone. With no monthly charges or expensive cartridge games to buy, PlayMG enables you to enter the world of portable “freemium” apps via the Google Play platform.

With PlayMG you get wi-fi access to Google Play with an endless amount of apps, games, music, movies, TV Shows, books and much much more! Total access to the Internet. Does not require an expensive monthly data plan!

Your kids can search the web which is great for homework assignments, play games, take pictures, watch movies, and so much more!  It comes pre-loaded with a bunch of fun games, but you can also purchase more games and set parental controls.  Plus, there are tons of free apps available too!

"As a mom who has 4 boys (2 grown, 2 at home) I can tell you that the PlayMG has really been a great way for my boys to complete their chores every single day without fail because their allowance is paid to the on their SpendSmart card each month. My boys learn the value in saving and the fun of spending because they see their balance every time the play with their PlayMG (every day) I love that I get an email instantaneously whenever they use their debit card, if spending at the Google Play Store or any retail establishment. The PlayMG coupled with the SpendSmart card has really fostered communication in my home." - Gina M.

I like that it has the Sing Karaoke app and I would definitely give this to my stepdaughter.

I would keep it for the kids to play for a reward. I might end up playing a few games myself. I like the parental controls, I can control even form a distance on how much they spend on games. I don't have to be looking over their shoulders while they are on the MG, I can just look at the nifty report to see what they are up to.

Rachel Ann Chavez-Blom said...

I would give this to my daughter.
I like the idea of the optional dedicated SpendSmart Prepaid MasterCard. This would be a great way for her to get started w/a few games plus it would also be a great suggestion to others who need gift ideas.
