Created by Kamar Innovation Toy Group,Skoodlez are new children’s toys that open up a world of play and imagination, while increasing literacy rates in kids ages 4-12. Each Skoodlez comes with a unique coin, containing a code that allows access to Skoodlez.com and the Skoodiculous Story Machine where children enter a world of learning. Once inside, kids are encouraged to write creative stories about their toy, which they can share with others through the Skoodlez online library, e-mail to friends and family, or print out to build their own book. Skoodlez seeks to make creative writing and reading fun and “cool” again for today’s youth. Offline, the Skoodlez are soft, lovable and have bean bag weighted hands and feet for hours of fun without a computer.

My daughter received a Skoodlez to play with and she loves it. She took her coin code and immediately signed up on the website. What a great place to play! She was creating stories in no time and the great thing is that she actually keeps going back to it. A definite plus for increasing literacy rates! Skoodlez are sold at Macy’s and Macys.com for $14.99, making them an affordable and educational gift option for parents. You can go here for a tour of the website.

And the great people over at Skoodlez have offered on lucky Dirty Shirt reader a chance to give the gift of literacy to someone they love. Below is the Skoodlez that is being offered, just in time for Christmas:
