The WGBY Love for Learning event is a PBS Kids fan fair celebrating educational public media for children — and now PBS Kids media is available anytime, anywhere thanks to new 24/7 services and online/mobile resources.

To honor the new multimedia front of PBS Kids, WGBY is hoping to encourage participating at the WGBY Love for Learning event by giving away a PBS Playtime Pad.

WHAT IS A PBS PLAYTIME PAD?

The PBS Playtime Pad is the first tablet from PBS. Produced by Ematic, the 16 GB kids’ tablet provides a one-stop destination for PBS KIDS’ educational content, with more than 25 games and 120 video clips and music videos pre-loaded, along with 100+ hours of video on the PBS KIDS Video App. Other popular apps such as PBS KIDS ScratchJr and PBS Parents Play and Learn are also included. The Playtime Pad features a front-and-back camera and a Paint Box coloring app that encourages kids to flex their creative skills. The tablet is kidSAFE® Coppa-certified, and includes controls that enable parents to customize the device for each of their children, set limits on screen time using a play timer and manage what kids can access.

HOW CAN YOUR CHILD WIN?

Any attendee of the Saturday, Feb. 25th WGBY Love for Learning event who comes dressed up in a PBS Kids-inspired costume or as a favorite PBS Kids character can qualify to enter. A parent or guardian must occumpany the dressed up child to the signup table at the event and enter in an adult's full name, the child's first name only, mailing address, phone number, and email address (adult full names must be entered). A random drawing will be completed on Monday, Feb. 27 at the WGBY station. A winner will be notified.

Sorry, but only children dressed in costume who are present at the WGBY Love for Learning event can be entered using parent/guardian contact information (parent/guardian must also be present).
