We just received a Playaway View to review here on MomStart.
About the Playaway View:
Playaway and Playaway View are the first-ever, self-playing, pre-loaded digital media players. Now you can stay entertained in the car without draining the battery on your cell phone and computer. They are individual, light-weight, hand-held rechargeable devices with a diverse range of titles. Playaway truly has something for everyone, and you can listen by yourself or as a group in the car with an audio cable. And best of all, they are available for free! All you need is a library card. Many libraries and schools carry them and they can be checked out for up to three weeks.
Now I read the description and wasn’t exactly sure what it was, which is why I asked for the review. The Playaway View looks really cool, so I wanted to play with it. As soon as we received it my children took it and I didn’t get it back It’s like a portable tv. And it’s the perfect size for children. It came loaded with My Little Pony Friendship is magic and they watched the three episodes over and over again. What I didn’t realize though from the description is that they only have one title and then a few episodes under that title. Like the My Little Pony Playaway view had three episodes of My Little Pony on it. I guess I thought you could check out quite a few shows on one device. I do however think that it’s perfect for road trips. It’s so easy for children to use.
