Scanimalz Review & Giveaway

Last week I showed you Goddess and her Scanimalz. This week week had a chance to play and want to tell you all about it.

Well, let's start like this.

Here is the QR Code you will receive from with your Scanimalz. We removed it from the bottom where it was sewed to the animal.

As you can see it is in a protective covering

Next you open up the back with the little rip tie.

After you scan your Scanimalz, your animal shows up in your app.

It is easy and fun. The kids love the games and they were a great distraction during our mini vacation drive. It was a few hours in the car and the kids passed it back and forth and got sample all the games. They hope to get more and at the cost of only around $9.99, they will probably get a few.

We love that the plush is combined with a virtual world. We were big players of another game like this for young kids way before smart phones and we loved the idea of our plush inside a virtual home.

You should scan your animal daily even if you aren't playing because there are points gained with each scan/spin.

The reason I like this as a player is because the games are fun. The reason I like this as a parent is that I see more and more kids moving away from traditional play and getting connected younger and younger. At least with this game, the kids are still encouraged to play. They can take their plush with them anywhere, play with friends and play in the virtual world. Best of both worlds for today's kid.

More on The Scanimalz App:
