This small symbol helps verify the product’s authenticity and cut through the clutter of copycats. Learn what sets Boogie Board® apart, why we’re launching a swap program and how you can participate.
In 2009, Boogie Board® developed and launched the world’s first reusable writing and drawing tablet featuring patented liquid crystal technology. This first-to-market innovation offered a breakthrough alternative to single-use paper and pen products – promoting sustainability and clutter-free benefits.
Today, thousands of copycat versions are available on online marketplaces and store shelves. While copycat LCD tablets may look enticing, they often don’t live up to the product’s promise and can leave users disappointed. For example, products may die quickly, be cheaply manufactured (which can have safety implications), or not deliver a high-quality user experience in terms of legibility and brightness.
If you’ve purchased or own a copycat LCD writing and drawing tablet, check out our Boogie Board® Swap Program to learn how to upgrade to the real deal. We want you to experience the quality and magic of our products in person.
Exceptional Quality Our technology was born out of the Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State University – based in Kent, Ohio, U.S.A. – and developed over fifteen years by top engineers, scientists and R&D experts. Boogie Board® products are made with premium materials, undergo rigorous safety testing, and are backed by a one-year limited warranty (extra warranty packages are also available for purchase).
Helpful Customer Service Copycat tablet products often don’t offer an option for getting in touch should product issues arise. Boogie Board® has a dedicated customer service team ready to help if it’s ever needed. Simply contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (1-855-224-0888).
Enhanced Readability Boogie Board® tablets are known for their superior writing brightness. Our products are developed to be high-contrast with our iconic neon green or Colorburst™ writing on a black surface. The writing width and crispness of the line that comes from Boogie Board® stylus tools are also best in class compared to copycat products (where the writing may bleed or look blotchy).
Increased UV Protection All Boogie Board products feature increased UV protection** that helps defend them from the sun. When copycat screens are exposed to sunlight, the writing on them can fade and the tablet at large can become unusable.
