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.

Leave a comment below (you may only enter once) and you are registered to save the innocence of your children by winning an MG for them.

The giveaway closes on December 17th at midnight. The randomly chosen winner will be announced on the 18th. Your kids will be so excited to open this on Christmas morning. You get your phone back and get to be a hero at the same time. Winner winner chicken dinner.

If you don’t win this one you can purchase one on Amazon. If you want to to stay up to date on MG products follow them on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ and Twitter.

    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. yes please!

  4. Genevieve says:

    I had no idea this even existed! This thing looks so awesome and it totally takes the worry of my kids seeing any “husbandlike” texts I may get ;)

  5. Going to check this out next! My girls are getting to know their mom in a whole new light when they read my texts. Its not good.

  6. 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.

  8. Love this! I too despise sharing my phone with the kiddos! This is awesome!

  9. Rebecca Isenstein says:

    What a great idea! Perfect for my 8 year old!! Thanks!

  10. 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.

  11. Lisa Flinders says:

    Oh, I have sixty fingers other than mine constantly grabbing at my phone but this would be heaven sent.

  12. I love this concept! No more worries about what might be accidentally added to my phone.

  13. 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!

  14. Yes PLEASE!!!

  15. Sharon Redd says:

    Thank you for the info and the contest!

  16. Would LOVE to win this. My daughter has been bugging me for a phone and we were trying to hold out as long as possible but this would be really great for her.

  17. This would be an awesome Xmas gift!!! Winner winner chicken dinner, love it.

  18. Karol Anne Roberts says:

    You mean I wouldn’t have to beg for my phone back several times a day!!?! I’m all for it!!

  19. This is a great giveaway! I have a sister-in-law who would love to get her phone back. :)

  20. This is awesome! I’d love it!

  21. Michelle Morton says:

    I could just buy it. :)

  23. This would be so neat for the kids to play with..I, like you, can’t stand letting them play with my phone!

  24. 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.

  25. Tracy Lynn says:

    I’ve been watching these! Would love to win one since being laid off it’s not in the budget to buy one. The three will learn to share!!

  26. This would be amazing! Our ten year old keeps begging to play with our phones. Maybe this would help with that. : ) Great review!

  27. LOL! That is a great story. “Dudes,” indeed.

    Winner winner chicken dinner!

  32. Hollow tree ventures says:

    If I get my phone back with one more picture of the inside of one of my kids’ noses I’m gonna scream.

  33. Love this!! Why haven’t I heard about it before? Thanks!

  34. 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!

  35. 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….. ;)

  36. Oh, this would be so awesome to win. The 10 year old really wants a smart phone, but certainly does not need a phone. He just wants the apps!

  37. I loathe sharing my phone, so this is needed in our house. Gimme that there phone!

  38. This has just recently become an issue as two of my three boys now not only read incoming texts, they read them ALOUD.

  39. I think it’s a great idea and have read so many great reviews. Thanks for the giveaway.

    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!

  56. 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!

  57. 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,,

  58. oh yes please that would be great!

  59. Would love to win one…I’m too late to enter but this looks very cool

  60. Love following you for tips like this. What a great product for the little sisters who are “dying” to have a phone.

  61. Thanks & Good Luck Everyone :)

  62. This would be amazing for my son who thinks he needs a phone but really doesn’t!

  63. 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!

  64. 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!

  65. 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!

  66. 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!

  67. would love one for my boy. thx.

  68. Would love one of these for my son!

  69. I had no idea this existed! This would save me a lot of embarrassment and time haggling!
    Thank you!
