Four Days Until the LeapPad 2 Prize Package Give-Away!

Special Christmas Give-away November 1, 2013In just four days my Month of Special Christmas Give-Aways begins with the drawing for the LeapPad2 Power Kids' Learning Tablet Prize Package worth $170! The LeapPad2 Power Kids' Learning Tablet is for children ages 3 to 8 and allows you to power up the learning with this fully rechargeable kids' tablet! The LeapPad 2 Power learning tablet is designed to be durable just for kids, with tons of fun features built-in. Includes a custom-built re-charger pack!

Christmas is less than two months away and we might be thinking about giving our grandchildren a learning system or apps and games to go on a system they have. With so much technology available just a click away, choosing the best, most educational apps and e-games for children can be tricky to navigate for any grandparent.  There are so many questions we wonder about: How can we be sure our choices are really educational?  How do we know which apps and games our grandchildren are ready for? Should we be concerned about how much time they spend using apps and games

I was invited to interview DR. JODY SHERMAN LeVOS; the math and science development expert of LeapFrog’s Learning Team. Jody works on products which teach math and science concepts in developmentally appropriate ways using research-based techniques. Before joining LeapFrog, she was a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, a researcher and instructor, and a math textbook author. She is also the proud mother of two boys. She earned her doctorate in developmental psychology (specializing in mathematical and cognitive development) at the University of Alberta, in Canada. 

LeapFrog filmed my interview so I could share it with you! Please watch below and see her answers to some of these and other questions for you so you are better able to navigate the whole area of technology for your grandchildren!

And, there is still time to enter the give-away for this LeapPad 2 Prize Package which will make an awesome gift for some child (USA only)! If you are 18 and older and would like to be in the drawing for the LeapPad 2 Prize Package, which will be on November 1, 2013, please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share!) This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the LeapPad 2 Prize Package and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away!
