Are you a parent who never gets to use their own smartphone or tablet due to the kids overtaking it to play their games and other apps? I know I was but not anymore! I got MY devices back thanks to the MG Game system!
MG is the first portable wi-fi Android game system for kids, designed to allow children to have their own system that pretty much looks like a smartphone. This slim, sleek and sly device will totally trick your kids into giving up YOUR devices for their very own game system! I have tried many different “toys” and portable game systems to take the place of my iPhone but my kids weren’t having it they wanted Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja and Stupid Zombies and they weren’t getting them from these other systems so when I first introduced them to the MG they were like ya ya whatever mom until I showed them that the system runs off of Google Play meaning they can download all of their favorite apps right onto the MG and play it!
The MG has a totally awesome big 4″ inch touch-screen that connects the kiddos to the massive world of free Android games via Wi-Fi and the Google Play store. MG comes pre-loaded with great games from EA and Com2Us, including Need for Speed, NBA Jam, Tiny Farm and Slice It making it the perfect device for kids that love video games (mine)!
The MG Digital Wallet and Remote Trust notification functions are new innovations in game systems for kids. My older children get the concept of money but my younger kids do not. They do not understand that if you purchase an app, mommy has to pay for it so I absolutely love that I don’t have to worry about any surprise charges with the MG Game System! All I had to do is add my email to the system at set-up and now I receive updates on my computer or smartphone about my child’s MG activity. That’s right this little device just became a spy tool so I can see what my kids are downloading! MG has also partnered with SpendSmart(TM) Prepaid MasterCard(R), which allow parents to set up a reloadable debit account for their chilren and then create “game allowances” that the child can use for micro-transactions. That means I don’t have to worry about those surprise charges that show up on my bill, BTW with your normal android device the android system will not refund you if your child makes a purchase so this makes me feel much more secure in allowing my children to download what they want.
We love new technology and video games but that’s not the only things the MG is capable of, you can also watch NetFlix AND it has a camera that my kids love to take crazy kookie pictures with! Not only are my kids loving the MG game system but Mama is loving it too….I just might play it after the kids go to bed, shhh don’t tell them.
If you already own a MG Game System and are having issues with battery life then follow these simple steps to extend it’s life:
- Switching Games: When you switch games, hit the back arrow button to shut down the current game before selecting a new one. If you hit the Home button and open a new game, the first game will still be available in the background so it will be running multiple apps which could drain the battery quicker.
- What’s Running? If your are wondering how many apps you’ve got running; press and hold the home button and a screen will pop up showing the active apps. To turn them off, touch the app(s) and slide it to the left.
- Rebooting the MG: If you wish to reboot your MG, or in the event you have numerous apps still running at once and encounter a freeze, Press and hold the volume down button (on the top of the device) and the brightness button (on the bottom of the device) for approximately 10 seconds (until the screen shuts off). This will reboot the MG. The startup will take a bit longer than normal because it has to go through the entire shutdown and restart process, but will clear out any issues you might have been encountering.
This Holiday Season get your devices back and give your kids the MG Game System! Santa just might be bringing us a second MG because with 5 kids and only 1 MG…..well I’m sure you can imagine.
