LeapFrog LeapBand Review and Giveaway

LeapFrog, LeapBand, activity tracker, children, kids, kid,
We love this gadget! The LeapFrog LeapBand is a kid's activity tracker for kids aged 4 to 7.
Little Miss is already 7 years old, but I can see that she is going to use it for at least two more years.

She is enjoying the watch feature while at school, and because we have set the time features, the virtual pet only comes alive after school and over weekends!

Little Miss has been wearing it for over a week now.

This is what we love about the LeapBand

- It is both a watch and a wristband tracker!

- Kids run, jump and play to earn rewards and power a customizable pet pal that lives on the band. (The pet pal makes me think of a the Tamagotchi's of the 80's and 90's, although it looks much cuter!)

- For parents, the controls on LeapFrog Connect make it easy to set play times, challenges and more.

- This is a very cool birthday or Christmas present which won't break the bank!

How it works:

- The more kids run, jump and play, the more they earn rewards to power a pet pal that lives on the band.

-  Parents can pre-load 50 active challenges on the LeapBand to get kids moving, such as “pounce like a lion”, “march like an elephant” and “wriggle like a worm”.

- There are 8 virtual pets for children to choose from. The more they unlock joules, the more pet pals they can choose from.

- Parents can set up the LeapBand by connecting it to their computer, cellphone or laptop using a USB cable and downloading the LeapFrog Connect application.

 - Once the child has unlocked all the pets, the app allows parents to see their child’s activity level for an entire week.

- The LeapBand can be charged via the USB cable, either through a computer or a USB wall charger.

Smart Features:

- The onscreen pet changes colour to reflect your child’s activity level. The feature allows kids to instantly view their progress.

- Kids can also see how many joules (jewels) they've earned and this encourages them to complete activity challenges to unlock new pets.

Available at ToyZone, Pick n Pay, Toys r us and Reggies stores countrywide. RSP: R399.99

  2. Love that it encourages movement in this digital age!

  3. Great way to keep kids active and fit and rewarding them in the process

  4. It gives the kids access to technology, but doesn't take away from their need to be active. It's a really awesome concept and great toy.

I really think and love that LeapBand has a designed a product to facilitate physical activities in a fun, imaginative, and engaging way, supplemented by LeapBand’s virtual pets and an accompanying app that offer age-appropriate lessons about health and nutrition.

    I would love to monitor how active my daughter really is knowing she's home with 2 couch potatos

  19. I love how it encourages the kids to be active!

  20. It is a good idea as it will help kids leave an active, healthy lifestyle. It will also give them something to take care of and look after thus creating responsibility :)

  21. Most kids love all things tech, but most of these gadgets turn us into couch potatoes. But the Leapband is totally different! It looks so cool and I'm sure my girl will think so too ;)

  22. love how interactive it is and not just another "game toy" for kids but teaching and "rewarding" kids for being active throughout the day

  23. making exercise fun for the kids, a great way to get them off the couch whilst they enjoy and interactive rewarding game

  24. The LeapFrog LeapBand is so cool~

    1. At the same time, I also recommend Cheertone's kid smart watch and mini arcade game player if you are interested.

  25. What a nice and useful kid smart watch!
    Thanks for you share,Karen du
