New Toys

I love new toys and learning something new is always fun, even if it is a little difficult sometimes.  My new Ipad that I got for Christmas is so much fun and the learning curve was so easy.  (All except for how to use it to post.  That was a little bit harder.)

My son gave me this wonderful cover for it that makes it just like a laptop.

 See how it just slides into the top and then you have this fabulous keyboard, so you can really type like you were on a regular computer.  He bought it for his Ipad, but didn't ever use it, so he gave it to me.

 It can either lay down flat or stand up just like a regular laptop.  I am loving it and having so much fun.

I'm not sure where my son bought this one, but it is available at Amazon for $77.65 with a black keyboard.  Mine is the silver one, but I am sure they all work the same.

They say you are never too old to learn something new, so I am trying.  Do you like new toys?

  1. I've seen these covers in stores, but didn't realize that there was a keypad in them. That is really neat!


  2. That is pretty nifty! I'm with you on trying new things :)
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi Marty! Love your new case! I might have to look into one I these! :)

  4. I don't have an ipad but I do love that case with a keyboard for it. It brings a whole new light to what can be done with them. Enjoy your new toy! It really does look like you'll have hours and hours of enjoyment from it!

  5. Marty, Thank you for dropping by.So nice as always to visit with you.Wonderful gifts you received.I scrolled down and saw a few other Christmas goodies too that are fun in the kitchen :) Have a wonderful day.Denise

  6. Hi Marty, you are going to LOVE your IPAD. My husband knows I like technology so he bought me one a few years ago. I keep telling him it's the best gift he's ever given me, I use it several timdais day and rarely use my laptop. Learning new things stretch our minds and horizons, enjoy. Ronda

  7. Love new toys too but my husband bought me a new laptop for Christmas...Windows 8, it is super fast but you have to relearn how to do everything(I'm using my old one now) I have to learn it because soon they are all going to be Windows 8!
    I wonder if one like yours would be better:)

  8. I was hoping for one at Christmas...but nope! Maybe next year...but I would really love one!!

  9. HI Marty! Oh, grats on your new toy. My husband has an IPad and I can't blog on it! I guess I'm not to tech savvy. Good luck and have fun. I love the external keyboard.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  10. I don't have an ipad, but have read/head several say they wish they had a regular keyboard. Bet they would like this.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  11. Really neat, Marty! I don't have an IPad and right now I am satisfied with my laptop and desktop. The IPad is a lot more portable, though, which is an advantage. Hope you are having a nice wknd. By the way, I'm your newest follower.
    Blessings, Beth

  12. It's true! Learning IS the Fountain of Youth! :)


  13. My son hooked me up with the same one and I love it too! They are also on ebay, which is where he got mine.
    Have a great day.

  14. I love my ipad, but it is a bit limiting. The size, perfect. Looks like a great setup there...enjoy!!!

  15. Hi Marty,
    I am in that approach -- avoidance group!!! One day I want an Ipad and the next day I don't. Glad to hear you are enjoying yours ---I think I'm moving closer in that direction -- especially since i've seen the keyboard.

  16. I am glad that you like it! I have a IPad too and love it. Did you have Blogpress added? I bought it from the Apple store, I think it was only 5.00.

    Have a great weekend.

  17. I like your new toy, Marty. My hubby just gone one, too, but hasn't had time to play with it yet. I love that your has that keyboard. xo Diana

  18. Thats what keeps you so young is learning new things, hard or not and not giving up and being in awh of the new technology and how much easier it makes our it...thanks for sharing the cool keyboard attachment...

  19. What a great Christmas present! - hours of fun :) Greetings from Australia♥ ~Pernilla

  20. Have fun with your iPad! I just love, love mine! My husband bought it for me last year for Mother's Day and I don't know how I lived without one for so long. LOL It is such a neat toy.

  21. Marty,
    What a nice new toy, dear friend!!!
    I, too, try to learn something new everyday! Still trying to get "Mr. Ed" to buy me a laptop...perhaps we'll just skip that toy and move on to the next...this looks amazing!!! The gray/silver keyboard is easier on the eyes than the black...wish I still had my lighter colored one! Thanks for sharing!!!
