TOS Homeschool Crew Review - Study Pod


Have your children ever had problems keeping a book open while trying to do their school??? The STUDYPOD can help!

It keeps the book at a great angle... alleviating neck pain and gives you more desk/table space for the notebook/page you are writing on.

Have you ever been cooking something and gone to get something in the fridge and come back to find the wind or fan has blown the pages of your cookbook to a different page and you have to search for it again. Or, maybe you left the book on the table next to you and then spilled something on it. The STUDYPOD can help with both of those problems. It also keeps the book at a good angle for reading.. even if you are standing next to the table or counter.

It is great for doing crafts... keeping your page open and your hands free to do the task at hand. In the same way it would be great for music lessons to keep your page secure and leave your hands free for playing.

It is also great for copying your own writing onto the computer. It keeps the book at a great angle and keeps the pages secure. As I said before it also saves desk space in case your space is limited.

The above are some of the ways we have used the STUDYPOD I am sure we will find more ways to use it in the years to come.

Here is what it looks like all folded up.

The first step in opening it is to pull the metal pivot prop rod out.

 Then you open the STUDYPOD up.
Here is a back view.


Here is a little video (no sound) that I did to show how it opens up.

 You slide the locking pin over and fold the shelves down.

There is a velcro pouch inside that you can use to carry pens, markers, or other small things like a calculator. Very convenient.

This is a side view with a Saxon math book on it.

  • Holds virtually any size book with thickness up to 2.25".
  • Size (closed) 6.75" x 9" x 1.33"
  • They also have the BOOKPOD. The BOOKPOD and STUDYPOD book holders are physically the same products but sold under different names and colors 
  • The STUDYPOD is available in Black, Blue, and Pink and the BOOKPOD is available in Black, Gray, and Beige. 
Here is a link to a video on the website and a pdf you can download. The video lets you see how the STUDYPOD works and the pdf gives you step by step instructions on how to open the study pod. It is easy to use and convenient to store and carry. When folded it is smaller than most of the books on our selves.

My boys like the STUDYPOD and I hope to be able to buy them each one.. actually I want to buy the pink one for me and then give one of them the black one we got for review.

They sell one unit for $19.95 and if you buy two or more you can purchase them at a discounted price of $16.95 each. Plus as a bonus for my readers they have provided a $5 off coupon. This discount is not off of each STUDYPOD but off your total order. Use the code TOSBLOGS5.  STUDYPOD has graciously made the wonderful discount available for about a year, so you have plenty of time to check it out and buy some for your family... maybe as Christmas gifts or even Birthday's. Buy some for extended family as well!! 

Check out the STUDYPOD website for more details and for purchase.

Out of 5 stars we give the STUDYPOD ...

Check out the TOS Homeschool Crew post about the STUDYPOD and read more reviews for different view points on this fine product.

I hope you enjoyed this review and that you check out the STUDYPOD,

Nice. I like the pics of your fam/books using it. I love this thing too! The pink is calling me as well-but I do so hope for a red one...:-)
