The next BEST thing since sliced bread. And. I am giving it away!!!

Two months ago, Jay bought a "World's Best Gamer" trophy for his father on Father's Day, and I asked you to recommend a gaming system for us.

So many of you fabulous readers wrote in with suggestions and after reading them all I agreed with some and decided to forgo buying a system. I wasn't ready to lose my little boy, my first born, to the world of gaming. Yet.

We put the idea on the back burner and decided to purchase a ping pong table for our basement, for his 6th birthday. Dziadek (Polish for Grandpa) has been Jay's ping pong coach and the kid is good. Really good.

Fast forward one month, and I was strolling through all of the sponsor's tables at BlogHer and noticed the LeapFrog table. Jay grew up with LeapFrog toys and has enjoyed his Leapster immensely. However, he outgrew it and hasn't picked it up in over a year. I stopped at the table for my free water bottle and noticed a new system geared for 6 to 10 years old.

"No way! Is this a new product?" I asked the LeapFrog rep.

"Yes. New on the market. It is the didj, the new competitor to the Nintendo DS."

"No way!!!"

"Yes. The graphics are amazing. It is educational. It comes with a USB port and you can download your spelling lists straight into the gaming device. You can create your own characters online and download them directly onto the didj"

"No way!!! I just blogged about this and asked my readers to recommend a good gaming system for my six year old." I laughed out loud, thrilled that I had just stumbled upon the next best thing.

"Cool. Yes, this is our new didj. As a LeapFrog product you can count on this being educational and fun."

"Can I buy this one?" I was sold. The ping pong table was already on the back burner at this point. Besides, the didj is portable and takes up less space.

I had one week in between coming home from BlogHer and Jay's 6th birthday. I logged onto LeapFrog.com that Sunday night and purchased all of the games available to date. AND. AND. AND..... guess what is being released in October?

Indiana Jones. And.

Star Wars.

I know. I know. Ohmygoshthisisthecoolestthingever!!!!! I can hardly contain my excitement.

Jay woke up on his birthday to a room filled with balloons and wrapped presents. He tore open each one and saved the one "from Mama" for last.

He. Was. Thrilled. He pushed aside the "Grow-A-Frog" and the Legos and the newest Jonas Brothers CD and logged onto his didj. The kid played with it for hours and was amazed, "This is like a tiny computer, Mama" and "I look like a teenager, don't I" and "Mama, this is the best present I ever got" and "Mama, this is the coolest birthday I ever had" and "Mama, you are the best mama in the whole entire world."

And. I melted.

He insisted that we take it along in the car and I watched him play in my rear view mirror. He looked so old, so grown up, so not a little boy anymore. But, I was okay with this, I have trusted LeapFrog for years and I know that this product is just about the safest gaming system for a six year old.

The next day, I logged on to my own computer and emailed the LeapFrog rep I met at BlogHer.

"Thank you so much for spending your time explaining the didj at BlogHer. I purchased everything off of your website. My son is in love with it. I know my readers would be too. So, I am just going to throw this out there and ask if you can give away a system to my readers. It doesn't hurt to ask. LOL. Right? Please let me know. We LOVE it." Read my email. And yes, I do write "LOL" in emails.

Some days later, the rep emailed me.

"I can give your readers one didj and one didj game."

I love the didj. You will too.

Just leave me a comment telling me how awesome I am. Errr.... I mean..... how awesome this new product is. ONE COMMENT PER PERSON, if you comment twice you are out of the giveaway. I am using random.org as many of you recommended.

You have until Sunday, August 3rd, 2008 at 12:00PM EST. Yes, in the middle of the afternoon PM. Good luck.

P.S. This is not a review, nor a product endorsement, I am not getting paid. I simply love the product and emailed them and said "I love your stuff and want to give it away." And they did. Awesome LeapFrog people. Awesome!

P.S.S. Now if only Saks Fifth Ave would answer my emails regarding my love affair with their stilettos!!!!

WE CAN'T GET THEM IN CANADA!!!! (and we really WANT them)

So, yeah, I'm SOOOO entered.

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

So, wait...no ping-pong table? That was such a cool idea! Christmas, maybe?

And is "didj" a word? I never heard of it. I know I'm out of it, but I thought I knew English.

BusyDad said...

Leapfrong kicks major butt! I love leapfrog stuff. OhMommy kicks major butt! I love OhMommy stu...

A Whole Lot of Nothing said...

Victoria said...

Leapfrog is awesome! My kids love their leapfrog toys! I want to win!! :)

krissy said...

I am going to start emailing companies and complimenting them instead of complaining to them. Maybe I could get some shit to give away......or keep.

Well, anyway....you rock. So whatever you like I like too. That sounds like a song, doesn't it?? Maybe the Jonas Brothers would sing it.

Jenn said...

This sounds like a great toy for my husband...er, I mean, the boy! The little boy. Right.

Nice giveaway - OhMommy, you rock!

Kelly said...

That is so awesome!! I hadn't even heard of that gaming system yet. My boys would absolutely love that though! Count me in!

Jane the Sane said...

Well, you ARE awesome but the didj looks like soo much fun. I love the idea of an entry level gaming system. You had me at 'spelling lists'.

Brittany said...

Ohh we love video games in this house, and well... if it's leapfrog, then it has to be learning, and well... I would rather my little one learn something while playing! So..... count me in, please! :)

P.S.- I see you around other blogs I read, so... you must be awesome. AND you live in Ohio...so... yea... makes you even better! :)

Flea said...

No WAY! LeapFrog ROCKS! It got us over somem tough humps while home schooling. How awesome that they now have this product!

Domestic Extraordinaire said...

Wow, that is neat. Glad you could get it off the rep table. And so cool of them to give you one to give away.

I have a feeling if Sax sent you stilletos to give away the random drawings would be rigged in your favor...LOL, just sayin'

Dawn said...

Leap Frog is awesome!! I wanna win!! :-)

LaskiGal said...

J's only gonna be one . . . in a couple weeks *sniff*

It isn't too early to start, is it? He already loves the Leap Frog toys he has . . . so, why not?!?!

Rach (Mommy Learns to Blog) said...

It never hurts to ask, right? And the fact that they said yes speaks volumes about them (we already know how fabulous ALL Leapfrog products are!).

OHMommy - great job!

Today's my bday, I'm hoping that by entering tonight, I might just have some bday luck!

Jenelle said...

I've never heard of a didj,, but it sounds awesome! I love video games and have a DS that I play those brain games on, so I'll be one sharp old bat in like, 50 years.

Nap Warden said...

I'm sold...you're awesome!

Now if you could just start giving away shoes...

enthalpymama said...

My son is turning six next week!! I am so entered into this contest. This is awesome!!

Helen E.M. Wright said...

Leapfrog is one of the few toys that we allow with batteries.
Although we buy most of them in Canada because then they say 'zed' and not 'zee'. ;)
Good going with the swag!

C and C Mommy said...

I love that you didn't cave to the "game" system. We have a PSP, a Nintendo DS, and a Playstation. Of course, they are all my husbands!! COOL SYSTEM!!

Jennifer said...

We just jumped on the Leap Frog wagon not that long ago! I am so excited to hear that there is an educational alternative to Wii. Count me in OhMommy!
-jen and the monkeys

Allison Says said...

Wow! That sounds awesome! Way to go figuring out the perfect thing at BlogHer. I still think you should get a wii eventually, though ;)

Seriously, this would be great. I would love to win one. I have been thinking about jumping on the Leapfrog bandwagon, and this would make me do it :)

Miss said...

That is awesome! He deserves such a cool game because he has such a cool mom!

Kelley said...

Just think, Boo would be the coolest kid in AUSTRALIA with some of that Didj action!

He is too old for the Leapster (which he still plays with) so this would be AWESOME.

Almost as awesome as my Classy girl.

Who is my favourite.

(enough grovelling?)

Susan said...

That sounds awesome! I love Leap Frog's stuff and so does my son.

Gwen said...

Ok, I am totally a blog stalker- never commented before- but I love your site! :)

ShannanB aka Mommy Bits said...

I chatted with the reps from LeapPad too and they were great. I really wanted this system for my 6 year old and would love to win.

Ashlee said...

Thanks for giving us the heads up on this new toy. We have a serious love/hate relationship with video games at my house. My son is pretty much banned from his Nintendo DS. I tell him his brain will rot. :0) But, he will love this because it's video games...and I will love it because he will be learning as he plays. We had a LeapFrog video game system when he was smaller and he loved it. So glad they came out with this! Hopefully I'll get mine for free. *fingers crossed*

JCK said...

You SHOULD be writing product reviews for kid stuff. You really should. I want to buy it now! Maybe I can win it?

Elizabeth said...

woohoo!!!!! very excited about this one!

Jeff T said...

teach skills in a range of subjects, such as language arts, spelling, math and math facts.

Huh? thought it was a game! LOL perfect giveaway and best of all, just in time for back to school!!

Oh Mommy! Oh Didj! Both kick some butt!

and what's with Didj, is it short for en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Didj

handmedown said...

Please enter me, too!
It looks so cool!

My kids would LOVE this - so would I!!
~Beth

VDog said...

Pick me! Pick me!

DYSFUNCTIONAL MOM said...

Oh, I really want that for my Princess! I tried to get her a Leapfrog handheld thingy for her birthday but could not find ANY games for her age level. This would be perfect! xxx crossing my fingers xxx

Jeni said...

One of the very first toys Maya (my beautiful little granddaughter who is autistic) received for Christmas when she was a year old was a leapfrog Frog that sang various songs, talked, etc. When she finally began to learn to speak, she became very interested in this particular toy and we credit it for her learning several little songs from it -great toy, great learning experience for her. This item sounds like something she would very much enjoy now as she is gearing up for kindergarten next year plus, she is absolutely fascinated by computers!!! And her birthday is just around the corner in October too!

Carmen said...

I would soooo be the coolest Auntie if I could get my hands on this! Thanks!

dp said...

Please pick me. ;)

The Mom said...

Wonderful, thanks for the chance!

lattemommy said...

Love, love, love Leap Frog and all their products. Just bought the Leapster for the Princess for the evil, evil plane ride we're about to take. I'm counting on hours of occupation. (Please!)

I'd love to have the Didj. But, I suspect that it will be a few years before the Princess is ready for it. So, I hereby declare that I will give it to Mr Lady's kids if I win.

CelticBuffy said...

You are the classiest of all classy moms! My 7 year old son is so drooling over these (and so am I!)! Enter me please! :)

Mommy Cracked said...

John Deere Mom said...

Love it...love you...love everything!

Laurie said...

Saaahweet! Sensational giveaway. All the Leapfrog stuff I have is so old school. This looks most excellent. Count me in!

Irene said...

Wow, I had no idea about this product! My oldest LOVES her Leapster. She still plays with it. I know they have many games that are supposed to be for older kids, but, you are right, they do sort of outgrow it by about 6.

So yes, I would love to present her with a didj (yes, strange name). And her 7th b-day is only about 2 months away...yikes!

mommynotes said...

This is so awesome! You are awesome for thinking of all of us. I pray I win. Sarah loves her leapster and this would be perfect when she out grows it. We too have grown up with leap frog and I love all of their stuff.

Scary Mommy said...

You are awesome. And really pretty. And funny.

(So, do I win?) ;)

Ellyn said...

Your a great mom.
My little boy is kind of young for it but he loved his leapfrog music table when he was a baby. Now his sister plays with it. I like Leapfrog a lot because I know thier toys are very well made and last for years and years.
Did I tell you, your a great mom?

Krystyn said...

That is awesome! And, seriously, didj..how to you pronounce that?

We love leapfrog, too!

Raising Z said...

We LOVE leap frog and my brother in-law plays the didgeridoo (or didge as they call it for short...might there be a connection? :)).

We would love this!

chichimama said...

You are awesome! And that looks so awesome! C would be the happiest child ever if we won it!

Hailey said...

Yeah!! Perfect birthday gift! We would love to see it and try it out! :-)

Smart A$$ Mom said...

OH!! OH!! We have an 8 hour car trip planned for our 'family vacay' in August and I was JUST LOOKING into replacing Lil V's Nintendo Gameboy with a DS but I just looked and this one is better!!! Please, please me.

Melissa said...

My 7 year old always wants to play with my 5 year olds Leapster. How cool would it be to have something more her age to have fun with? Cool !!!

Keri said...

I love leapfrog! anything educational is a plus in my book.

Sign me up!

Lisa said...

Sign me up, buttercup! That looks like it would be loads of fun :)

Stephanie said...

I have to say, I absolutely LOVE Leap Frog. Karys has so many of their items, many of which she has outgrown, but will be saved for a second or possibly even a third (gasp!) child.

Happy Birthday to Sweet Jay! And yes, you do have one awesome Mama!

Tara said...

I think its great that they are finally making gaming more educational. Canada doe not have them and not sure when we will get them. I would love this new psp/DS alternative.

beth said...

I have never heard of this but I love Leap Frog, so consider me entered!

Happy Days said...

Leap Frog Rocks!!!
I am glad Jay loves it. Sounds like he had a great Bday!!!

Mandy said...

Too young for my 13 year old and too old for my 2 year old, but my nephew age 8 would absolutely love to have it.

He is a gameaholic!!! This would be great for him.

Thanks OhMommy for asking the rep and thinking about your readers.

You are awesome!!!

Count us in for the drawing definitely!!!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Well Dino has always loved the Letter Factory so I bet he would love this!

Marmarbug said...

Janet

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

Sign me up!

Is it pronounced did jay or didge?

Just curious because if I want to talk about the best thing since sliced bread I should at least know how to pronounce it! Minimizes my odds of looking like an idiot. LOL - I'm mocking you a little there...LOL :)

momof3crazykids-Val said...

That is a cool gadget. My little guy would love it. That was so nice of LeapFrog to do that.

Mishelle Lane said...

You. Are. Awesome.

Mnogu te sakam!!!

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

Great concept. I have been pleased with most Leapfrog products. We have the Leapster and I don't think it is all that great. I would love to give the didj a try, but I can't figure out what you actually CALL it?

KEEP BELIEVING

Colleen said...

I so love that he said that he looks like a teenager - too cute!

My kids are still on the younger leap frog toys, but we &heart; them! Nick got the Leapster for his 3rd bday and that kid was a mouse/keyboard EXPERT in about 4 minutes. Please - enter me - I'd love to win as he'll probably outgrow the Leapster about 2 weeks from now. :O)

Blessings From Above said...

I do love LeapFrog...but not as much as I love OhMommy! You rock!!!

BTW, how cool is it that you can download spelling words with the didj!?!?

Kel said...

Oh that is too funny! I hadn't heard about this product yet, but we are definitely researching for what gaming system we are going to get the kids this year. That is awesome that leapfrog has gotten into the game - yes, and you too are awesome for giving one away!

~K

Courtney said...

Pick me, pick me. And you are awesome, but I think I've all ready told you that before. We love, love, love all of our leap frog products so we'd love this as well I'm sure!

Btw, did you try to do that cake or not?

unicorntweety said...

My 7 year old would love this! And i can't get it in Canada.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

So . . . I might be more interested in the stiletto heels? Does that knock me out of the running for the didj?

Laura said...

WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW - would love to win since we have a 3 and 4 year old - about to become a 4 and 5 year old....PLEASE PICK ME!!!!!

You rock - doing the follow-up and all...too cool!

laurie said...

dddiva said...

How cool is Leapfrog?
Hehe I just came across your blog from Following In My Shoes and am adding it to my bloglist if you don't mind- I am having a suck-up giveaway too. ;-)
Ian and Asia are digging on the Leapfrog games too, guess I have to find this for the holidays if we don't win.
I'm going to go add you now then come read some more, I like your style. Thanks for the giveaway.

Crystal D said...

Oh this sounds perfect for Madeline. I haven't really let her do any thing on the Wii, just watch me do the bowling game. But this little handheld game, which is EDUCATIONAL, wonderful. We have many other Leapfrog toys and they are all pretty great. So excited for this give away!

Tracey said...

AWESOME!! My 6 year old would love it!

Julie said...

My son turns 6 in September! This would be PERFECT for his birthday. He also loves his Leapster and would be all over another great Leapfrog game!

Thanks!

christi said...

Oh I LOVE something that TEACHES!!!!! Count me in! I am entered!

I am going to GOOGLE it now!

Happy Thursday!

OH, How was the modeling yesterday?

juliagulia said...

Yippie! Love leapfrog!

Jolyn said...

Ok, you ARE awesome, but so is leapfrog. My 5yo loves her leappad, but she also loves her gameboy because of the influence of her 12yo brother. I had never heard of a "didj"? It sounds perfect...

Jessica said...

I LOVE The LeapFrong products. They are a Cali company so I am not surprised were at BlogHer. Yeah! I am so impressed that you had the b@lls to come out and ask for one. You are the woman!

Ali said...

Stacy said...

WOW! I just spent checkd them out at the LeapFrog site...... can you say cool??? Love it! My son would just flip to get one of these!

Cecily R said...

First of all, you ARE awesome. Totally and completely.

And secondly, PICK ME!!! Isaac has a DS that he loves but Gracie...Gracie needs something different. Because she is so wildly artistic, I worry A LOT about her and school. Something that sort of tricks her into learning...

Put it this way, if you are endorsing it that much, maybe I need to get one for her regardless of what happens here.

Fabulous contest!!

MommyTime said...

How cool is it that they actually responded to this!?! I would love to have something like this to keep Son occupied so he doesn't simply long for his daddy's computer games of "bad guys." We've loved LeapFrog ever since our first table for babies was given to Son as a present.

And, of course, we LOOOOOVE OhMommy in this house too...

Nicol said...

You are totally awesome! And I would love this!!!! This is the first time that I have heard about it and it sounds great!!!!

jewels said...

GoMommy said...

My son't birthday is coming up in a few months...we've been thinking about a DS, but that free didj would be awesome! We have Leapsters for the boys, and they love them, although Big E is out-growing it!

Melissa said...

Pick me, pick me!! I'm going to have to take a look at this while in Target tomorrow! Thanks for the heads up!

You know, that is if I don't win it! ;)

Jennifer said...

How exciting. Please count me in.

renatamic said...

see...now i have a reason to win something. good gift for my half-brothers!! don't think they sell these in the 'Po-Land.'

although if i win 1, i can then go buy another one online so they don't kill each other fighting over it :-)

Julie said...

We love Leapfrog, My daughter has learned so much from the toys and videos. Baby Tad was her first-SO CUTE!!

This Didj is so cool, Amazing what can be yours if you just ask nicely!

Please can I have it? Was that nice enough? :)

Your the best OhMommy Please enter us !!!!

MamaWise said...

Very cool! I had never heard of this product until you wrote about it. Even if I don't win I will have to check into getting one myself! Thanks for the "review" :)

The 5 Bickies said...

I would love to try this for my 7 year old son. I think he could benefit from a new twist on spelling lists!

Always love your posts...
bickies

Lindsay said...

Put educational in the word and I'm in - hook, line & sinker.

Stephanie said...

You really are cool. Ask and you shall receive as the verse goes. I can't believe they actually gave you one to give away. That's so awesome!

tammy said...

That is fabulous!
And you are fabulous!
And the didj is fabulous!

Amy said...

Wow, what a cool little system! My girls are in love with their Leapsters but I'm thinking Emma is ready for this gem! Educational is so better than a gameboy!

And you do know we all said to get the Wii for YOU! Jay was just a front.

Ashley said...

Oooh yes, please! Please do sign me up! Thanks, yo! This is really super cool!

-Ashley (www.bosssanders.com)

Bethany said...

What an awesome way to make technology super educational! And how classy of you to think of your readers!

Shelle said...

I love leapfrog things. My daughter's favorite is the ABC bus...and the refrigerator magnet! WE want to enter...we want to enter!!!

Nan Patience said...

Sorry, but my kids had virtually no use for LeapFrog, and we had such high hopes of making geniuses. Now gaming, that's another story, if they could make it fun AND educational...

I realize in advance that I'm disqualified.

And by the way, my daughter exclaimed the other day that WebKinz has become... educational.

THopgood said...

Oh...my....God...

I am SO a LeapFrog fan. I...um...I mean my KIDS...own just about every LeapFrog product available but I have somehow managed to never hear about this one. My all time favorite is the interactive globe! Seriously...it is SO awesome. I....umm....I mean my kids...now know all the capitals of the US states and have been learning the location of countries that we had never even heard of. Seriously. Check it out.

So, Yeah, I'd LOVE to win this one!

Cherie said...

Wow OhMommy. I have been reading you for a few weeks/maybe months now. I am reading some many.
Now yuo are giving away one of my FAVORITE products! My daughters loved them when they were little and my son who will be four here shortly is seriously going gaga over the "first computer."

Hopefully I win... then he can be just like the "big Kids".

Cherie

Kathy said...

Your blog is a dose of entertainment for me! Now, there's a chance for something free? Gotta love it! Count me in!

Ya... About That said...

Love and kisses to you and LeapFrog. (mwua!)

ladybugsnkatydids said...

Ohmommy - You are too nice to us - your faithful following! We were pondering getting a Leapster for our 3, but those plans may be put on hold . . .

We love Leapfrog, please enter us.

Thanks!

Immoral Matriarch said...

I wonder if I can get one...do I qualify, being as she let me have the other thing - the Leapster 2?

Hmm...I don't have a kid in that age range anyhow. Good luck to all the entrants!!

Rachel said...

I'm in - you're awesome and the game sounds that way too!

How cool. I had never heard of it. My daughter's fifth birthday is coming up that would be so fun!

And you are awesome. Hopefully this random integer works out for me, as the name in the hat last time was bust!

Well, I have to admit that our children don't have any video games, mostly because my kids get very addicted very quickly. BUT we do use our Leap Pad and my kids really love it. So, sign me up. I know I'll never win but here's wishing....

I have never even seen this! We love LeapFrog as well and son wanted a Nintendo DS, but I didn't want him to have one. He also never plays with the Leapster any longer.
(again, sorry you have to post rules, I hope I was not the instagator!)

Oh wow! This is GREAT! I have never heard of it but I love the educational aspect combined with the current themes like Indiana Jones and Star Wars. In fact, I know 2 boys in this house who would LOVE one!

You ARE the best Mommy out there.

Nicole said...

We've been looking at the DS, but the girls are too young for such a fragile item! The leapfrog one looks like it is built for little mishaps!

And yes, you are awesome!

Beth said...

Leapfrog is the best!! You just can't go wrong with them!! How cool you have the opportunity to do this!! My boys would LOVE this!

Keri said...

We totally love Leap Frog stuff and we don't have this and I haven't even seen it until I saw it on your blog! Now I'm thinking we need one. Leap Frog is truly good no joking. My kids have learned a lot from their stuff. I really recommend their Letter Factory DVDs. My girls learned their letters and sounds from those.

Well, I'm late for the giveaway, but I'm glad to hear that you found a good alternative to the video gaming systems. I'll have to recommend this to my mom for my little brothers.
