Play with PlayMG

Munchkin 1 loves video games and always wants to play games on his phone but doing this runs down his phone battery and then I can't contact him when needed.  I needed a solution.  Something that would keep his interest and solve the issue of him running down his phone battery.

I am glad to announce that I have found the solution.  PlayMG.  PlayMG is a cell phone without the calling and texting.  It can do everything a smartphone can do.  It is a non-smartphone smartphone.  The android system running on the PlayMG is Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, this is the same android system running his cell phone.  

 When I gave Munchkin 1 the PlayMG he was super excited, Munchkin 2 was too.  She sat on the couch and watched Munchkin 1 play.  They had a blast looking for their favorite games and exploring the device. 

The 4" screen of the device is large enough that he can see the screen well while playing without having to squint to see but it still fits in his pocket perfectly.  The games can be downloaded through the Google Play Store just as you would on your tablet or smartphone.  

PlayMG also has the MG Family Collaboration System.  You can set up a SmartSpend™ prepaid MasterCard which allows your child to buy games, apps, and make purchases in the games.  The parent signs up for the card then the child can use the card as they wish until they have reached the limit.  So no overspending and draining your checking account.  You also get an extra $10 when you sign up.  Such a great system to give your child freedom to purchase what they want but still have boundaries.  

And as we know, kids download a ton of games on their devices and use up quite a bit of their memory making the device and games run slower.  But when I got the PlayMG and opened the box I was shocked to see that there were not 1 but 2 memory cards included, an 8GB and a 16GB SD card.  This means Munchkin 1 can download games and apps without having to worry about running out of space as quickly.  

I wasn't really sure what to expect from the PlayMG because we have had bad experiences in the past with products not being what we thought they would be.   For example, last year we bought Munchkin 1 a tablet for his birthday and we couldn't even download games on it.  It was a huge disappointment but the PlayMG is perfect and exactly what we were looking for in a device.

PlayMG would be a great gift for Christmas and can be purchased from their website or even select Target stores, Toys R Us, or!

Right now they are on sale on Amazon.  You can get the 24GB storage bundle (comes with charger) for $149.99 (regularly $179.99) or the 40GB bundle (comes with charger and case) for $169.99 (regularly $199.99)!
