Thank you Improv Electronics for providing me with a Boogie Board, free of charge, for review. These are my own honest opinions.
I have been eying the Boogie Board LCD eWriters for quite some time. They seemed like a pretty cool little gadget, and I am a techie gadget geek! So I was really excited when Improv Electronics sent me one for review!
They sent me the Boogie Board Original 8.5 LCD eWriter in red. As you can see in the picture above, they come in all kinds of colors and designs, so you can choose your favorite color! This is really great if multiple family members have Boogie Boards so you won’t get them mixed up!
The Boogie Board Original 8.5 LCD eWriter comes with a stylus, stylus holder, and adhesive magnets so you can stick it on the fridge or in your locker if you’d like.
When I opened it, I immediately tested it out, as I have been itching to try out this product! I was impressed by the fact that your hands don’t smudge it while you’re writing, though sometimes they will leave a small mark if you press hard on it with your hands. I had been a little worried that my hands touching it would mess up whatever I am writing or drawing, but only the stylus really marks it.
I thought the Boogie Board would be great for leaving notes for my family, “Gone for a run,” “Gone shopping,” etc, or even making my grocery lists on. I thought it’s an awesome Eco-friendly product to save paper! However, when Davey saw it and I let him try it out, he decided the Boogie Board is HIS and said he might share with me. Gone are the days of buying your kids those old fashion magic drawing boards from the dollar store… get your child a Boogie Board instead!
Looks like I will have to get myself another Boogie Board! I think I will wait for the new Sync 9.7 to come out, which lets you save pages and sync via Bluetooth to your phone or tablet! It looks pretty awesome!
