When I first heard of the Bada Board, I thought it was going to be made of plastic. I'm not sure why the word 'board' in its name didn't tip me off that it was going to be cardboard (duh!) but just the same that's how it played out. So, I was surprised when it arrived, but still of course, decided to give it a go. Turns out being made of cardboard makes it perfect for tucking in and taking it wherever you go! We have folded ours and tucked it into the backseat car pocket when we've gone on trips, and used it for coloring, writing, a game of Bingo, and playing the DS. Some things are a lot easier to do when there is a Bada Board to hold your items.
The board opens to be just a little bit bigger than my son's laptop (Bada Boards measure 15" x 0.5" x 9") so it's perfect for him to sit on the couch and do his homework too. His school requires a certain amount of logged time onto a program they do that he can finish in the classroom, or when he's at home. Having the computer on his lap with no surface is difficult because the bottom of the laptop can get warm. Putting it on the table doesn't work because he's not comfy that way, bending over to use it.
We like our Bada Board. The cardboard is sturdy enough that it's going to last a good long while, and like I said, it's perfect for the car when we're on the road for long stretches of time too. I foresee this board being used quite a bit in the car this summer.
