Green Ostrich Boogie Board Review



A woman-owned business founded in 2009 based just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Green Ostrich™ started with the following observation: the energy-intensive retail stores that we frequent do not offer many Earth-friendly, green products. That, and we were spending a lot of time and energy driving in our car to and from these stores.

So, we decided to create an online store dedicated to Earth-friendly, green gifts and green toys to spark a consumer movement that requires environmentally-sound solutions for our lives. We help people make changes, not sacrifices. We help them live well and refresh the Earth.

Caroline and an Ostrich

Why did we pick an ostrich? The ostrich is one of the most Earth-friendly animals in the world. They compare favorably with cattle, poultry, and pigs, because they require less feed and less land, and they reproduce quickly. Ostriches are durable; true dinosaurs, they have roamed this planet for over 120 million years. They typically live at least 40 years in the wild, and they are known to live as long as 70 years in captivity. Ostriches are also memorable; frankly, they are funny-looking. That was enough for us. We offer Earth-friendly, durable, memorable products that replace common disposable products. So, our products and an ostrich have a lot in common.

Boogie Board LCD Writing Tablet

Boogie Board LCD Writing Tablet

Make a Change: The Boogie Board™ tablet is an ultra 1/8-inch thin, paperless, wireless LCD writing tablet for the home, office, school, and athletic field. It fits in a purse, scheduler, briefcase or backpack. Measuring 8.8 x 5.6 inches (223.52 x 142.24 mm), it includes as much writing space as a half sheet of letter-size paper. The Boogie Board tablet weighs only 4.2 ounces. Erase your image with the touch of a button – and a friendly flash from the liquid crystal display. The Boogie Board tablet's pressure-sensitive LCD writing surface creates lines of different thickness based on how hard you push – just like paper and pen. Write or draw with the included stainless steel, telescoping stylus or any other suitable instrument – even your finger. You’ll never need to search for a pen or pencil again. Writing tools that will mark or scratch the LCD, such as pens or pencils, are not recommended. The Reflex LCD technology utilized by the Boogie Board tablet is reflective. Display contrast is proportional to ambient light, so bright light offers the optimal contrast. Adults will use the Boogie Board as a phone memo pad, refrigerator notes, family game score pad, sketches, notes, diagramming sports plays, quick sports stats, memo pad, and a to do list. Kids will use the Boogie Board to practice handwriting, write spelling words, and solve math problems.

We have had so much fun playing with the Boogie Board! The kids like using it in the car, it’s great for car games. I’ve used it to leave notes for the kids and it is great for writing down things from phone messages. It is so nice not having to waste paper! I highly recommend the Boogie Board, it would make a great gift!
