Let's take a look now.
My daughter, after waiting patiently, gets to turn it on. To start, she gets to pick a pet and customize her pet to the styles and colors that she want. Then she got the named it.
LeapBand is an activity tracker. My daughter is usually very active. But LeapBand helps encourage her to play or perform specific activities that are suggested by LeapBand. Kids can earn Joules for finidhing the chanllenges and games with pets. Joules can be used to unlock additional games, challenges, pets and levels of play.
The activities on each challenge is easy and suite for children. It is fun to see my daughter try to do the activities like “Pop like Popcorn” or "Jump like a frog". It is a good exercise and each challenge is not long so she doesn't feel they are too difficult to complete the challenge.
LeapBand can be set to school and night time. During that time, audio, animation or gameplay is unavailable to them. Kids still can earns Joules since the device still tracks their motions but the device will show only clock displays until the school or night time has expired.
There are 36 activity challenges to be unlocked in addition to the 14 default challenges. Kids can unlock up to 7 additional pets. My daughter unlocked the second pet in no time!
At first, she kept touching the screen since she thought it is a touch screen device. LeapBand doesn't have a touch screen function which my daughter doesn't seems to have a problem with it.
I love that doesn't require batteries since it comes with rechargeable battery. It is kid-tough and water resistant.
Buy it!I definitely think this would be a great gift for your child. It is a very fun way to get children learning and moving at the same time! LeapBand comes in 3 colors: Green, blue and pink. Retails price is at $49.99.
