Playaways are, dare I say, one of God’s gift to parents.
Last week, we found Playaways at the library and I didn’t hear a peep out of my kids for two hours! I actually read my own book. (And fell asleep on the couch.) Luxurious.
But, I am not a slacker mama. Really! Because Playaways are audio books in a cute little box, accessible with headphones. They’re like an iPod with one book on it. Here’s a picture.
Kid-sized headphones with volume control are a must for playaways. You can get them on Amazon if you’re an internet shopper like me. Here’s my daughter listening to Island of the Blue Dolphins.
Here’s me doing a happy dance.
Okay, it’s not me but it does express my love of the playaway.
Any of you already fans?
