When I first was asked to review Study Pod, I thought that, while I’d like to have one, it seemed an odd thing to review. Well, I thought that after I looked it up to see what in the world it was. Little did I know that our Study Pod would turn out to be one of the most practical and well-loved items my family has reviewed.
So, what is a Study Pod, you wonder? It’s a durable, compact, versatile book holder that has become used nearly ever day in our house. The Study Pod was designed by a teacher, with the help of students, to create a product that helps relieve neck and eye strain, improve posture and make reading, writing and typing easier.
We have found a variety of uses for our study pod, including holding open the library books that we use for our state studies so that all the kids can see to draw the state bird or state flower:
…or holding our art book open so that I can read the instructions to the kids and still be able to draw myself or holding the teacher’s book open conveniently so that I can copy sentences onto the white board:
…or even a sheet of paper for typing or memorization.
Study Pod is designed to hold nearly any size book, though it is suggested that the books be under 2.25″ thick, which worked out perfectly when a couple of members of our household felt the need to feed our Twilight obsession while we ate.
Study Pod even has a handy pocket for storing everything from pencils and highlighters to your MP3 player and when you aren’t using Study Pod, it folds conveniently into a book shape for easily storage on your bookshelf or in a backpack.
You can visit the Study Pod website to see a video on exactly how it works. You can choose between black, blue or pink or you can purchase a Book Pod, by the makers of Study Pod, in black, gray, or beige. Both Book Pods and Study Pods are $19.95 each or $16.95 each if you purchase two or more.
