Win an MG Handheld & Save Your Child’s Innocence

Do you wake up every morning and think to yourself, “I can’t wait to let little Timmy use my smart phone today?” If so, discontinue reading now. This post is a waste of your time.

I despise sharing my phone with the kids. D-E-S-P-I-S-E. Mine. Mine. Mine. But? Sadly, I do because it’s better than listening to their non stop questions about the meaning of life or the three of them punching each other’s lights out. So? I give in.

Recently, while Colt was playing some whale flying through the clouds game on my phone, my husband text me something a little, well, husbandlike. “Momma, what does b-o-o-b-s spell?” I did a yoga move into the back seat that would impress the Dalai Lama and quickly snagged the phone out of his hands.

“Stupid autocorrect,” I said, “Papa was spelling dudes. He said he can’t wait to play with you dudes when we get home.”

“Stupid is a bad word momma,” Colt said.

“Yes Colt it is,” I responded, “It sure is.”

And that is when I decided it would be best to NEVER share my phone with the kids again. EVER.

Coincidentally I got a call the very next day and the voice on the other end said, “Do you share your smart phone with your kids?”

“Ummmm, is this CPS?” I whispered looking around panicked. “I swear this is all a big misunderstanding.”

Turns out it wasn’t CPS at all. It was MG. WAY different.

After hearing all of the details about their fabulous handheld:

1. The MG provides monthly reporting of the apps your kid have used, how much time they spent using it and how much money they spent buying said apps. (Incidentally, this one comes with a prepaid $10.00 debit card from Bill My Parents.)

2. There is no monthly service fee because the product can only be used in a wi-fi situation. (If you have a hotspot on your own smart phone they can use that while you are in the car. If not, there are plenty of apps that once downloaded can be used without internet access.)

3. Google Play has thousands of apps.

4. They can download music and even movies from Netflix.

5. It has a headset jack so you don’t have to hear those screaming Angry Birds.

6. The Gorilla Glass screen is nearly impossible to break.

I got one for my children (the two without a smart phone because we don’t do smart phones until 16). And then I thought, I bet my bottom dollar my readers hate sharing their phones as much as I do. So? I got one to giveaway too.

    Oh my would this be a lifesaver! My kids always always want to play angry bird etc on mine but at 4 and 7 they’re too young for phones of their own..

  2. Jessica D. says

    I’d love to win one of these! I have 3 girls and the oldest has a cell phone so needless to say, her little sisters are super jealous when she, dad and I are using our phones. They always beg to use our devices!!

  3. Kelly M says

    This would be a LIFESAVER! So easy to tuck into my purse and take on the go for doctor’s appointments etc. I love that I would be able to track what apps they are using and how often they are using it. Heading over to their website to get more details. Awesome giveaway!
    Thanks for the chance to win.
    Happy Holidays

    My 8 yr old daughter has been begging for a smart phone and her birthday is on Dec 19th so I have been trying to decide what will keep her happy until I think she is ready for a smart phone.

    This is awesome to the highest level of awesome. The hairs on the back of my neck stand on end when my child asks to play on my phone. I’d love for him to have his own that is sleek but isn’t actually a phone. This is an incredible option to have.

  6. says

    My daughter has a smart phone, but my 8 year old son does not. He keeps asking me if he can have one, and when I say “No,” he immediately asks to use mine. Mommy-guilt takes over, and I hand it over to him. This would be perfect!

    How cool is that? I have never heard of it and am going to check it out now! I have three boys ages 17, 13 and 9 ~

    Thank you for this opportunity@!

    This would be a great help when we are stuck waiting ANYWHERE, and the kids are getting restless and bored! Or when I’m having a meeting, and need them NOT to interrupt every 5 seconds! I usually tote around a heavy bag full of crayons, coloring books, library books, and snacks…my arms are tired.

  9. Sara says

    I love it! My daughters’ needs (okay, wants, but when we’re stuck somewhere and they’re bored, it *seeeems* like needs) are simple: a few games here and there, the Kindle app, and occasionally music. This is perfect!

  10. Eddie Guevarra says

    Ohhhh!!! I would love this for my kiddos! Can’t count how many times I’ve missed a text I call cuz one of my kids was on my phone & didn’t let me know….. ;)

  11. Laura Jacobson says

    Oh this looks amazing!!! This would be a miracle worker in our home! Carter loves to play bowling on the phones all the time, and we keep missing calls and it uses all our battery! Oh….this would bring so much peace here! Oh amazing!!!!!!

  12. Stephanie lamb says

    Great invention… Oops got to go, …So …sorry, my battery is dying… on my smartphone because of my 7 year old… I’m going to become an angry bird… Where is my charger!!! (I feel your pain) lol! Thanks for the opportunity!

  13. says

    Omg I thought I was one of the only parents who had to sacrifice her phone for peace of mind. I swear, the minute I take it back to check messages, he’s asking 20 questions, in part I think to annoy me enough to get my phone back! This would be perfect!

  14. maegan says

    Oh my great goodness alive!!! I need this for my 3 yo. Yes, I said 3. Year. Old. I am as addicted to my phone as she is and I want to reclaim it!!
    Thanks for the great giveaway,,

  15. Michelle Morton says

    Wow this is really cool – I had never heard of this until reading your awesome post on boy ideas! This is a really awesome idea.

    Thank you for the chance to win one and good luck to all who enter!

  16. Jocelyn says

    What a fantastic idea!! Would love to gift this to my friend’s son who is just getting into his tween years. He’s very tech-savvy, so this would certainly fit the bill! Thanks for great idea!

  17. Ann says

    My oldest son is a 1st time tween. I am new to this. I want to make sure he is not picked on for his choices but want to keep his innocence as long as possible. The MG sounds like a great idea!

  18. UGAmom says

    Genius! I am often sharing my phone with my 12 yo son. He has asperger’s so when we are in public & he is having sensory overload & beginning a meltdown, I let him use the phone to distract him. Works like a charm….unless I need it!
