Congratulations @Kobo for Receiving the @PTPA Award!

Whenever I see the PTPA Award (Parent Tested, Parent Approved), I automatically trust whatever the product is that it is a good quality, well tested item!

This is why I was so excited to hear the news that the Kobo Mini and Kobo Glo both received the PTPA Award!

My daughter is a bookaholic. She reads so much and loves it that books were the only thing on her Christmas Wish List at one point! Books are over taking her bedroom and my husband and I have discussed having her use a Kobo numerous times, but I wasn’t convinced.

Now that I’ve done some reading on them AND they have won the PTPA Award, I am definitely convinced that we should try one for her! The Kobo Mini or the Kobo Glo would make a perfect gift for her.

One of my favourite features about the Kobo is that the battery can last up to ONE MONTH!!! That is incredible!


The Kobo Glo ComfortLight illuminates the screen with an even, soft, adjustable front-light so you can read any eBook any time of day or night — no lamp required! And, with the magic of E Ink, customizable fonts, and a high-res XGA screen, people who love to read will enjoy the ultimate Kobo reading experience.

Lightweight and functional the Kobo Glo allows families to access their favourite books no matter where they are:

  • The Kobo Glo provides a comfortable front-lit eReading display that lets people read any time—day or night.
  • With Kobo Glo’s E Ink anti-glare screen, it’s just like reading print on paper—even in direct sunlight; it’s also the only high resolution display available on the market.
  • The Kobo Glo is highly customizable with 24 font styles and 7 font sizes.
  • The Kobo Glo comes in four stylish colour options – Black Night, Pink Sunset, Blue Moon and Silver Star.

  • Readers have direct access to the Kobo eBookstore from the Kobo Glo with a Wi-Fi connection—with a storage capacity for over 1,000 eBooks, with expandable storage with and SD card for up to 30,000.


Proving that big things come in small packages, the 5” pocket-sized Kobo Mini is affordable, stylish, and loaded with all the features Kobo customers love. Kobo Mini is the smallest, lightest ultra-thin eReader on the market and is fully customizable with interchangeable backs to suit any style.

Incredibly portable and fully functional the Kobo Mini goes anywhere you do:

  • The 5” Kobo Mini is the smallest, lightest full-featured eReader in the world.
  • With Kobo Mini’s glare-free E Ink touchscreen, it’s just like reading print on paper—even in direct sunlight.
  • The Kobo Mini is fully customizable and allows you to choose from 7 font styles and 24 font sizes, as well as exclusive weight and sharpness settings so you can adjust the text to suit your eyes.
  • The Kobo Mini is sleek and stylish with 5 interchangeable SnapBacks in a range of colours to suit anyone’s reading style.
  • Readers have direct access to the Kobo eBookstore from the Kobo Mini with a Wi-Fi connection—and storage capacity for over 1,000 eBooks.

The Kobo Mini and Kobo Glo can be found in Canada at Indigo-Chapters, Future Shop, Best Buy, Staples, Walmart, The Source, and Toys“R”Us.

  1. I am a long time lover of both PTPA and KOBO! I never thought of it for kids but yes your right!

  2. Brandi Yee says:

    I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Kobo and really want to check it out! I know my son would love it too 🙂

  3. I LOVE KOBO!! I’ve been a Kobo reader since they released their first reader and will continue to be. Not only are their systems awesome, but so is their website for ordering.

    Combine Kobo with PTPA and it’s a win win for all!

  4. We have a reader, but not a Kobo. The functions on the Kobo sound excellent – what a great gift idea!

  5. Sny Med says:

    Kudos to Kobo! Receiving the PTPA award is a very high distinction. Thanks for sharing the news!


  6. I have been hearing more and more about the Kobo and I really hesitated since I am hard-core addicted to physical books. But after hearing so many people talk about how much more they read after getting an eReader, I think I’m sold. I need a Kobo!
