{Lunchboxreviews} AND WIN A GIFTCARD! *GIVEAWAY CLOSED*

I have to admit that I'm not a parent who generally likes all the lights and gimmicks that a lot of electronic childrens' toys out there exude.  {I mean, come on, that's why I started Gourmet Play!!}.  That being said, I do understand that there are times that you just simply must offer up something to your child to keep them occupied.  Particularly if you're doing some long-distance car ride, waiting at the airport or a doctor's office, etcetera.  And for those reasons, I fully support finding something to "entertain" your children to keep them out of your (or others'!) hair.

So.  Did you know that there are apps out there just for your kids?  All of you tech-savvy moms out there are probably going, "Heck yeah! I couldn't go a day without them!"  While others (like me!), are going, "Really?!"  Yes. Really.  But here's the kicker:  which ones are good?

This is where www.lunchboxreviews.com comes into play.  They offer a one-stop shop to see which apps are actually worth your investment.  I mean, 99 cents a pop isn't a bad deal, but they can certainly add up.  And there's nothing worse than "wasting" money...especially in this particular economy.



Lunchboxreviews has sorted them by platform (iPhone, iPad, etc.), age, educational vs. games, books, creatives, for mom and dad, and for special needs.  The creator, Milanie, writes some of the reviews herself, but also relies on other reputable sources to write reviews for the apps. So once you find what you're looking for, you can simply see how it's rated (using a simple 5 star system) and read comments (from users and/or critics).  It's that simple.  And presto! Your "research" is now complete, and you know if it's going to be worth that buck or not!

I give a "thumbs up!" to this clever site!  It's a worthy source for any tech-savvy mamas out there to utilize!  The research is simple, fast and won't cost you a penny.

WIN AN OOMPA GIFTCARD!
The same creator of lunchboxreviews.com has also generously offered up a $25 gift card to www.oompa.com to one lucky Haute Tot and Baby Couture reader! They offer European toys, baby toys, modern gear and more for children!
