Win a Poingo Starter Set! Where Books Come Alive!

(This giveaway is now closed.)

poingo poingo2

 

 

I received my Poingo Starter Kit and wasn’t sure what to expect.  My son is almost two and LOVES to read, so he was a a young, but willing tester.  (They recommend ages 3 to 7.)  He was immediately attracted to the box and asked for help to get out the books.  While he is too young to read everything (and in some kind of sequence!) he really enjoyed pointing the special pen and hearing the words and the sounds.  Even pointing to the pictures has some wonderful sound effect! 

The starter kit comes with two books, Cars and Nemo, and the Poingo Pen.  My son loves to go get the box, and will let me know which book he’d like to read.  His favorite page is in the Cars book, where he can listen to sounds from the “radio.”

You have to check this out.  It is such a fantastic product.  And we’re giving away a starter kit to one lucky Mommy’s Idea reader!

I purchased the Poingo set for my 4 yr. old granddaughter for Christmas and she just loves it. The problem now is she won't share it with her 2-1/2 yr. old sister and fights break out. So I would love to win this Poingo starter set for the 2-1/2 yr. old. I would like to get the Lion King book for her:) Terrific giveaway!

Isn't Poingo amazing? I purchased the same Poingo Starter kit last Christmas for my four year old granddaughter, thinking that she would share it with her 2-1/2 yr. old sister, but she won't. I can't afford to buy another, so I hope to win one. My favorite book is Disney Princess: Magical World, coming out in Spring 2009. Fantastic giveaway!
