PlayMG Review

I have received the item featured without charge for purposes of this review.  As always, all opinions and experiences expressed are my own.




holidaygg13    I am super excited to introduce you to the PlayMG!  If your family is anything like ours, Mom and Dad’s smartphones come up missing all of the time.  Why?  Because the kiddos are using them to play their favorite games.  But as a social media savvy momma, I want my phone for my stuff-and all too often I am getting it back only when it has no battery life left. 

   Enter the PlayMG. Marketed as “Unlimited Android Entertainment . . . for the App Generation. Play More. Spend Less”, I was excited to try it out.


This was the package straight out of the box.  It included a charging cord, 16gb of additional memory and the actual unit (with 8 gb of memory already on it).


The nifty little box opens to showcase the unit, and the Bill My Parents card.  I have mixed feelings about this, and if you are giving this as a gift make sure to take this into consideration.  Signing up for a preloaded debit card can be a big step.  You do receive $10 towards purchases in the Google Play store by doing so, but the cons might outweigh the pros for you.  You can still connect to a Google Play account.

If you choose to go the  prepaid Mastercard route, they Provide An Optional Email Notification For Remote Monitoring. Young people get to enjoy unlimited apps and parents get to “trust but verify” through weekly email usage reports.

We chose to do it because it keeps spending to what is on the prepaid card.  No surprise credit card bills with in app purchases.  Plus, using the -repaid MasterCard helps manage app spending through a real-time balance on your home screen!


Here are some other great aspects to the PlayMG:

PlayMG: A Smartphone that is not a phone.

A pocketable all-in-one entertainment system specifically designed for young people who do not have a smartphone. There are no monthly charges or expensive cartridge games to buy, PlayMG gives you access to everything on the Google Play Android platform. With PlayMG, young people get their own smart-device and parents get their smartphones back.


Get Unlimited Android Entertainment.

WiFi access to Google Play store with an endless amount of apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, books and much much more! Total access to the Internet. The perfect companion for the App Generation and does not require an expensive monthly data plan!


Big Expandable Memory

Available online at and and well as:





After setting up our account, I was good to test this out.  I was happy to find almost all of my boyz favorite games in the Google Play store, and from the fiddling that Daddy D and I have done we really like this device!  We are excited to give the PlayMG to one of our boyz for Christmas, shhhh! don’t tell!
