What It Is

Password Journal is a stylish electronic journal that offers privacy and protection so kids can safely store their secret thoughts and belongings. Kids use their own voice to personalize the password, greeting, sign-off, and intruder alert. Saying their password, kids are able to open the journal to reveal a notebook, an invisible ink pen, a glow light to reveal the ink, and a small storage compartment. If anyone else tries to say the secret password, the intruder alert goes off. Kids can choose from three levels of security, depending on what secrets they have inside. The lowest level doesn't require any password, while the highest level requires perfect pronunciation of the password.

Is It Fun?

Diaries and journals are very personal items, and Password Journal helps kids keep their secrets and belongings safe. Writing with invisible ink is a fun novelty, and kids will love recording their own greeting, sign-off, and intruder alert.

Who It’s For

Password Journal is for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Younger kids may not want to have this at the highest security level because that really does require them to speak very clearly.

At the same time, the technology has improved significantly with various versions of this over the years to the point where the voice recognition really does work very well.

Password Journal requires three AA batteries, which are not included.

Regular ink pens also work in the notebook.
