Traveling with Kids Can be Fun: MagnaPlay Review & Giveaway


Summer is here and traveling with little ones can be a nightmare! We had a six hour drive over Memorial Day when we went to Gulf Shores for a small family vacation and if it weren't for James' Magnakase I would have had a seizure. It kept him entertained for hours. The Magnakase is made by MagnaPlay a company who understands kids.

The Magnakase we reviewed included the MagnaPlay Magnetic Coloring Travel Set and the Magnetic Wooden Number Match Set.

The MagnaPlay Magnetic Coloring Travel Set includes:

· 1 MagnaKase - Magnetic Dry Erase Activity case with 2 magnetic surfaces.
·
4 double-sided Reusable Color and Erase Search-A-Word coloring puzzle (8" X 10" sheets). These coloring pages should be used only with dry erase markers.
· 2 magnet strips (8" X 1") that secures coloring pages to the activity surface, for coloring with crayons, color pencils or markers while on the go.
· Foohy Washable dry erase, low odor, thinline markers 6 count (Manufactured by Sanford Corporation).
· 1 eraser.
The 2" x 1 3/8" x 11 1/16" eraser is made from recycled material (wood and felt) and is virtually indestructible.
The Magnetic Wooden Number Match Set includes:

30 colorful wooden tiles that fit together to form 3-piece number (1 - 10) picture sets. They are 4" x 4" tiles with full magnetic backing.

Both are very durable. James carries his with him EVERYWHERE! He loves that everything is all in one place and that he can carry his artwork and tools together. He treats it like a briefcase and it is fun watching him put all the numbers together and count.


Note: I have been trying to get this review done for MagnaPlay for months, but my video camera is on the fritz. I can't get audio to work and the video keeps timing out. I'm sorry there is no sound, but I'm kind of thankful you can't hear James' potty mouth. I think he said "freakin" twice in two minutes. LOL - the pout and mean face at the end was in response to telling James it was time to put away the MagnaPlay to take a bath!

The people at MagnaPlay want you to try their product and have decided to give on of my readers their own MagnaPlay Magnetic Coloring Travel Set.
