Special Birthday Month Giveaway on May 24, 2016 - LeapBand from LeapFrog!

Last year I was invited to review a few new LeapFrog products, and to thank me, they sent me a new LeapFrog LeapBand. Since my grandsons already had LeapBands, I thought it would be fun to save it for my Special Birthday Month of giveaways . . . so, today I'm very happy to let you know all about it!

LeapBand
From - LeapFrog
Ages - 4-7

Favorite Features -
  • Extremely easy to program - even I was able to figure out how to make it work!
  • Available in three colors - blue, green and pink.
  • The screen has great color and detail - the graphics are very clear.
  • This is a big one - no batteries required!!!! The LeapBand is rechargeable!!!!
  • Parents can set the LeapBand for "quiet times" - such as when children are at school or in bed, so they can not play with it when they should not or when you want them to be sleeping!
  • Water Resistant - band is splash/sweat proof - but I would NOT recommend getting it wet.
  • Sound is clear and engaging.
  • Children are able to choose their own pet, color it and give it a name. As they play with it they can earn points to unlock more friends and surprises so the play is constantly changing!
  • Children can play games with their "pet" and they can also accept activity challenges where they move in specific ways for a set length of time - I love the Activity Challenges! Hop like a frog, pop like popcorn, jump five times and clap your hands and many more!
  • Stopwatch feature so children can time their own activities.
  • Built-in clock to help children learn to tell time!
  • There are ten preloaded games and activities children can play right away with their LeapBand.
  • There are 40 additional free challenges children can access on their LeapBand.
  • As children move and earn points they can unlock each pet and earn virtual toys for more learning and mini-games.
  • There is also a free downloadable companion app called the Petathlon where children compete as their pet in six mini-games like archery, surfing and bobsledding to win extras.
LeapFrog says; "The LeapBand is a new wearable activity tracker designed just for children which encourages active play and healthy habits through interaction with their very own personalized virtual pet. The LeapBand activity tracker gets kids moving and having fun with 50 different activities and challenges, tracking a child's physical moves so the more active a child is, the more points they earn with their virtual pet. As the child earns points through active play, they can unlock additional games, challenges, levels of play and virtual rewards for their on-screen pet. The LeapBand has an aspirational fit-band style designed with kids in mind, and high-tech features, a high-resolution color screen, a rechargeable battery and water-resistant design, making it the ultimate activity wearable for kids."

I agree! This grandma loves the LeapBand! It is a very fun way to get children learning and moving at the same time! I love how children can choose as they play what they want to do - the mini-games with their "pet" or the Activity Challenges - or both, and I love the variety and creativity as well as the fun in the Activity Challenges! They would be great fun for the whole family to do together! LeapBand is a definite "hit" and would make a wonderful gift for birthday or Children's Day . . . which is actually just around the corner!

I'm extremely happy to say LeapFrog sent me a LeapBand to review, and I am going to give away! (USA only) If you are over the age of 18, live in the USA and would like to be included in this give-away, which will be on May 24, 2016, you may enter by commenting below to tell me a fun and unique way you would like to get your grandchildren moving - I think "flying" like a SuperHero would be fun for my grandsons or "stomp, stomp, stomping" like a ginormous, humongous monster!

Additional entries in this give-away are available if you follow on Google+, Google Friend Connect, follow by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share!) This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the LeapFrog LeapBand and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!

  5. We play grocery store, you have a list but can only get 1 thing at a time. So you look at your list and get the 1st thing and bring it back to the checkout counter, and continue until you have every thing on your list. 1st one back is the winner - of course everyone is always a winner and we celebrate with snacks.
