When I first received the request to review this product, I had my doubts if I would have any use for it. Initially, I thought the product seemed more suitable for someone with children or someone who taught school.
Oh boy, was I wrong!!
First, let me introduce you to KleenSlate. Here is an excerpt from their website:
KleenSlate features the one-and-only, hand-held Response Paddle– a low-tech, educational tool designed to enhance communication and engage students. Created by former teacher Julia Rhodes, the Response Paddle was originally invented for use in the classroom but soon moved into usage beyond schools. You can find our paddles and markers in a variety of contexts all over the world– in homes, offices, hospitals, and care facilities. They are handy for people traveling or on-the-go, and they make communication easy in small or large groups
Obviously, this product is a hands-down perfect item for anyone with kids, or anyone who works with kids. And really, kids of all ages. After mentoring a bunch of late teens and twenty somethings in my senior year of college, I know that even that age group would enjoy this.
But all that aside, how can your regular person who may not have the type of engagement concerns like the primary user of KleenSlate?
Aaaand here is where I come in.
Obviously, I can have a sort of dark humor, so when I immediately saw the ease of use and hand held convenience of the paddle board, my mind went to work (and so did my mom's, of course).
So, now that I've openly discussed my stress over finding a job, I plan on walking around carrying this sign. Of course, until I find a job.
And as for my mom...well, my mom doesn't have a very nice car. She's been dying to get a new one, but it sort of got put off when my brother and I got laid off. So here is what she plans on holding up when she is driving around -
Hee hee...obviously, this whole product appeals to my and my family's wicked sense of humor. But in addition to that, they also provide dry erase stickers which are perfect for the fridge (which I totally plan on using to also help me write out goals and things like that as well as grocery lists). This is a perfect item for someone sick so they can write out their demands...um...ailments, I mean. This is also perfect for games or for sectioning off areas if you are planning big events.
I love this product and when I, ah, you know, have a job, I plan on buying more of these.
I am also so excited to announce that I will be giving you a sample set of the KleenSlate paddle boards which will include a 2-pack of rectangular paddles (retail $15.99) with some extra markers and a microfiber cleaning cloth.
