#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?

Nintendo and 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.

Sticking with the Star Wars theme, I’m sharing with you our recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens Rey Lightsaber review which Tigger has been blasting around the house with since it arrived – who doesn’t want to be a Jedi?

    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!
