#ToyTuesday {Week Twelve}

February 2, 2016

Yesterday morning there was a debate on the breakfast news about whether children should read paperback books or ebooks. Both Roo and Tigger are quite happy to pick up a paperback book and I must confess that I haven’t even considered giving them an ereader or downloading a reading app on their tablets. Children in my opinion, need to have that feel of a book between their fingers, to be able to turn the pages and enjoy the beautiful illustrations that are included in their books.

Do your children read paperbacks or ebooks?

Mario & Luigi Paper Jam on he Nintendo 3DS#ToyTuesday Week Eleven Highlights

Like a lot of families technology plays it’s part in our family life, from Netflix, YouTube and games consoles. Last week In The Playroom shared their review of the Mario & Luigi Paper Jam on he Nintendo 3DS which coming from a childhood of Mario & Luigi I was pleased to see another new game for o. Roo and Tigger enjoy the Mario Kart games so I think that they will love this new game too – maybe a possible Easter gift instead of eggs this year.

    I agree, I have a Kindle and I love it, so handy for long journeys and the App can be on my phone too. But I loved having books as a child, we still have a mountain of books as adults crammed into our shelves and I want my daughter to have that love of books too. Children’s books just aren’t the same on a device.

    My son has just seen this and said he really wants one but I am worried about the damage he may do as he can be quite destructive. I might give in for his birthday though

    I have a Kindle, but have to agree I prefer a book and haven’t even considered letting the girls read books on the kindle…which is why we are pretty much overrun with books!
