Long before the days of smartphones, e-books, and tablets, I was invited down south with my then-4-year-old on a weeklong beach vacation with friends.
As is the case with many young kids, my daughter loved watching her shows while she relaxed, and going through book after book was an integral part of her bedtime routine. I worried about how I would keep her entertained during downtime at our Florida villa without it all.
I gave in to the pressure.
Suitcases laden with kids’ DVDs and books, Alexandra & I set out on holiday. We had a great time with our friends, despite the extra baggage I had to tote there and back!
These days, as I watch my brother, sister, and cousins entertain their children using smartphones and tablets, I think about how lucky today’s parents are, with entertainment literally at their fingertips. On road trips, in restaurants, and in dentists’ waiting areas, media sits on standby, ready to entertain when needed.
Playster, an innovative online streaming service that offers members unlimited access to millions of quality content titles across a ton of media categories, recently announced a partnership with Hasbro Studios. This kids-focused collaboration expands Playster’s robust children’s catalog with even more classic favorites, like Transformers Animated, Clue, Kaijudo, and various G.I. Joe titles.
With a single, super user-friendly app, members can toggle easily between music, e-books, audiobooks, comics, TV shows, movies, and games, all for only $24.95USD/$22.50CAD per month. Oh how I would have LOVED to have Playster, the world’s first all-in-one entertainment streaming service, when my kids were little!
There’s plenty of content for Mom & Dad, too! This book-loving mama can read to her heart’s content! Or be read-to via audiobook, if she’s so inclined. Playster’s e-book and audiobook selection is incredible. I’ve bookmarked The Prince of Tides (by Pat Conroy), Wasted: A Memoir (by Marya Hornbacher), and I Know This Much is True (by Wally Lamb).
