Our family had the pleasure of trying out some amazing products from Boogie Board. These are fantastic, paperless memo pads. No batteries to install, they are ready to go as soon as you open them. They aren't just for kids either! My Boogie Board has been to simplify my life also. I use it for making my grocery list throughout the week, jotting notes when I am on the phone, and leaving a memo to myself when I do not want to forget something. They are incredibly handy and convenient. The size allows them to be taken anywhere. My kids love to have them on our road trips so they can play hangman or draw. It is so much easier than toting notebooks and markers. The original Boogie Board is an awesome product that each household needs.
