Chalk Powered Technology

This first item is a bit of a cheat in a screen-free post, because clearly it’s screen-based, though without all the glaring light, sounds and other negative aspects of a real laptop. This is old school tech with a modern twist that you can feel good about handing over to your child. Powered by chalk (and your child) this natural wood “laptop” is portable and equipped with a high-resolution chalkboard screen plus a fantastic sleek design. It comes with chalk for go-anywhere fun. If you’re looking for something a little smaller, check out the My First Smartphone – also powered by chalk.

Chalkmat

We’re long-time fans of the beautiful artistic travel supplies made by Jaq Jaq Bird. Their original chalkmats are just about the perfect travel accessory for any child. Each wonderful Chalkmat provides a perfectly entertaining mealtime experience for kids, both at home and on the go! These mats are 100% free of PVC, BPA and phthalates plus waterproof, stain-resistant and simple to clean. The mat side can be used as a colorful placemat, but as soon as your child flips it over, it can be used as a chalkboard for drawing and writing. An attached pocket holds the chalk, making this the ultimate tote-friendly mealtime companion. All Jaq Jaq Bird products meet and exceed the CPSIA requirements and come in both girl and boy friendly colors and designs. Each Chalkmat comes with 4 pieces of Jaq Jaq Bird’s excellent Butterstix chalk which is completely dust free, lasts a lot longer than ordinary chalk, glides smooth like butter and has a pastel chalk feel. Another chalkmat option if you’re crafty is to make your own.
