Eukie (Tablet PawdPet) Review by Amanda Hopkins

PawdPet, LLC

We have devices in our house. It is a thing in this technological time. But, devices in little hands can be dangerous, to the device as much as to the child. We had the chance to get our hands on Eukie the PawdPet for our tablet.

The PawdPet is a cute, cuddly, and loveable stuffed animal. But it is more than just a stuffed animal. The PawdPet is a fun way for children to take care of their devices.

We had Eukie the koala come into our house. Right away my daughter fell in love with him. But, I had not yet shown her what he could do! There is an electronic safe magnet that comes with the PawdPet. You just clean off the back of the device you want to apply it to, and the 3M tape holds it in place. Once that magnet is attached to the device, your PawdPet will be able to “hold” your device. And your PawdPet can sit or lay on their side while holding the device.

Not only does your PawdPet hold your device, but there is a pocket on the back that you can use to carry your device safely around. You can even pull out a strap and carry it like a purse. Also, in the pocket is a microfiber cloth to clean the screen of your device quickly.

Our PawdPet, Eukie was loved in our house from the first day. He went everywhere with my daughter. She loved that he could hold her device while she was laying down and it wouldn’t fall on her. I loved that when he was holding the device, the sound was directed at her and not all over the whole house.

Bringing our devices with us while we went out and about were even more fun and safe. There was less slipping around, and when we went into a store, we could slide the device into the back pocket, and no one would know what we were hiding in there!

If you are looking for a multipurpose holder for your device, the PawdPet is the thing you are looking for. They have two sizes, one for phones/iPods and one for devices, so there is something to work for everyone.
