This review is from: LeapFrog LeapBand, Green (Toy)
My nearly 4 year ancient is running around the house like a pleased maniac aptly now… and I am a small jealous that my fitbit fitness tracker isn’t as cute or as much fun as this Leapband. The small animal avatars are adorable and the fitness challenges are really engaging for my daughter (with music, sound things, cheering, etc.). There seems to be a lot of variety to them too — some examples: skip to something yellow (and then it plays music and cheers your child on), do a silly chicken dance (and then it makes clucking sounds to music), jump like a kangaroo (and then it makes amusing “boing”ing noises). Each of the challenges is only around 15 seconds or so. I’m really surprised by how much my daughter likes them and likes “earning” jewels and hearing the device cheer for her. I reckon it would be even more fun if she had a friend doing the challenges with her (instead of her mom…but I kind of like doing them with her too!). On some screens, when you click the star button, it tells you the time – but also gives some perspective (“It’s 9:23 pm….(yawn sounds) – you must be sleepy!!) – so she’s learning a small about telling time. It is very light on her arm – which I was apprehensive about. One issue: she is so used to touch screens that this (non touch-screen) device is a small counter-intuitive for her and she seemed confused at first – but I see it as a learning opportunity (and by the time I had finished typing this, she had figured it out — took about 10 minutes). I had a small distress getting the device to connect to my computer — which was doubtless something on my end with my USB port — but eventually it worked (doubtless a mistake on my end) – but it looks like you need to connect it to track your child’s progress and to change the bedtime/school settings (which are preset by the company). It took about 2 minutes to download the Leapfrog system on my computer, and then once I figured my USB issue out, it took about 1 minute for it to find/connect to the Leapband device, and 2 minutes to go through the options (I deleted the bedtime controls because I just take the watch away from her for bedtime – and I opened up all the challenges rather than making her earn them). I don’t know how much this will really get kids to go as there are (cute) small video games on it (aptly now she’s sitting still playing them), but the system has a way where you can limit the use of them if you want. The games are pretty simple/basic, so once the novelty of them wears off, I reckon it will be used as more of a fitness tracker (but with the games to use during car rides/etc.). There isn’t a real pedometer – which we are both sad about b/c I have a fitbit and she likes to see the numbers change with every step. Instead, after certain periods of movement or after playing games, she earns jewels. It seems weird to me that you earn the jewels/points for sitting still, playing a video game, when this is supposed to be to encourage movement. My daughter really likes picking her avatar animal and her name/color/etc. and likes the challenges. (There were a bunch of animals to point out from – cats, dogs, unicorns, horses – maybe 8 or 9? — and then a whole selection of insignia and names you can select for your “pet.” I really wish I had one of these when I was small! If your child likes this, I bet he/she would like the vtech kidizoom watch too (“smartwatch” for kids that takes photos and videos, and is touchscreen). I’m a leapfrog fan myself though – the voices and sound things on the leapband are so cute! :) My closing verdict: it isn’t perfect and I bet later models will be touchscreen and a small less clunky on the arm (although honestly, it’s very light and she seems to like that the screen is huge and we both like the feel of the band)… but the price is reasonable (forty bucks) and we’re both having a ton of fun with it. I’m pleased with the buy and would have been in heaven to have had something like this as a kid. (a few days later… I wouldn’t count on this to encourage your child to go. It really is more of a video game than anything else, especially as there is no pedometer. Still, my daughter loved it during a long car ride, has shown more interest in learning to tell the time, and does like the challenges which do have some fun exercise components. We have to limit the time she is allowed to wear it though to a small even as each day as she is getting obsessed with earning jewels playing the video part rather than the fun challenges) :(

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
Let me start by saying we own several LeapFrog products that we LOVE! I appreciate that ALL of the LeapFrog products that require computer/internet connection/activation use exactly the same cable (which they all come with!). Pretty much everything we have from this company (from the LeapPad2 to the LeapReader to their talking infant and toddler toys) are extremely educational. My daughter has spent hours learning numbers, letters, words, math, and geography from their incredible products. This one, but, is not one of their best.

Setup through their website took FOREVER and I already had the majority of their apps downloaded b/c we have their additional products, but it still vital unwarranted updates and restarts to their curriculum before it would let me even power this up. I reckon this might be buggy b/c it’s a new product, so they haven’t worked out all the kinks on their website, hopefully, they will streamline some things on their end to make the process quicker. Once I finally got it all synched up and working (after about an hour of different downloads, etc. and we have Fiber, so I know it’s not our internet alacrity slowing their downloads). You can set it to be silent during certain era of day/night so it won’t be vacant off during school or sleep time. You can also select which games/challenges you want on the band.

I got this for my 5 year ancient daughter. She LOVES animals and is obsessed with Hooper (the small hamster that leads exercising between shows on PBS) so I plotting this would be aptly up her alley. It is very large for a kid’s arm. It has an adjustable strap, but when my daughter jumps around and does some of the activities, it flops all over the place, even with constant adjustment.

When they get started, they get to pick a pet and then follows various directions (jump up and clap your hands 5 era). It counts off as they do the challenge and the awards them Jules as as they go. When they get a certain number of jules or pass a certain number of challenges they unlock a new pet.

The pet figure reminds me of the ancient school Giga pets-you can dress them, feed them, etc. The more jules you have the cooler material you can do with your pet. She really loved seeing what new things would be unlocked as she completed the challenges.

As far as educational value, it offers a small, but not nearly as much as their additional products. It does help with telling time, there are a few games with shapes, but that’s pretty much it. Very few, if any, letter or number recognition.

My daughter enjoys wearing it and doing the challenges for about 10-15 mins then she gets bored with the repetition of the challenges and takes it off and wants to do something different. I appreciate that it gets her moving, but that’s not really something we have a problem with anyway. She would run, jump, and play lacking it (in fact getting her to sit down is the challenge). If you have a child who needs to be positive to go around, I reckon this could work, but overall, I’m not super impressed with this one. Also, I would say the top end of the age for this toy would be 6, the way it talks, challenges it gives, etc. seem to be more at a preschool level, then apposite for a 7 year ancient (which they list as the top end of the age range for this toy).

Kids will get hooked on leveling their pets up by being committed!, August 8, 2014

This review is from: LeapFrog LeapBand, Green (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
This is a cool small device! Basically, it’s an activity tracker for kids. It goes on the wrist like a watch (which it also works as) and keeps track of how much your child moves around. There is a button to hit for challenges, and carrying out those challenges earns joules (pronounced like jewels!) as does just moving around. The jewels can be used to buy things, like virtual pets, and the pets can be leveled up. You can play small games with the pets on the device, like dancing games or a catching food game, and you can give them the toys you have gotten for them by leveling up.

It’s quite simple for a parent to plug this into the computer to charge (with the USB port) and to pick what challenges the child can try, and to see how many joules they have earned.

I played around a lot with this, as did my daughter. I tested with the challenges to see if you’d get joules if you just stood still, or did very small (challenges are things like jumping like a frog, writing words in the air with your arm or walking like a robot), and you didn’t. You need to really try with the challenges to get joules, which is excellent!

A few cautions. This doesn’t have a touch screen, as it might appear at first. It has 4 different buttons, and sometimes, background things or playing games with just the buttons is a small tough for today’s kids used to touch screens! Also, it came with a screen film cover, and I might just be a dense person, but it took me a even as to realize this, and I didn’t see it mentioned in the directions anywhere, so I plotting for a even as the screen didn’t change, until I figure it out and took off the plastic! You can set this to silent mode when it’s hitched to the computer, so it doesn’t make sound during school hours or at night. I did this, and then also densely was confused why the whole thing now was showing like a watch and not seeming to respond—it was school hours, although it was summer and there was no school aptly now!

The parent tracker is a small bit limited. I didn’t see a way to see how many whole steps a child took, but I guess that isn’t really what this tracks. I also wonder about the challenges—you do have to go to make them work, but it seems like nearly any vigorous moving worked—I don’t reckon it really knew whether we were jumping or marching or writing words in the sky!

I can see how a child might get quite addicted to earning joules to unlock pets and level them up, and it’s nice they have to do so by being committed! I do reckon the age range might be a bit off on this. I reckon it would be a bit challenging for the mean 4 year ancient to operate, and I reckon kids older than 7, maybe more like up to 9 or so, would delight in using it.

Overall, a quality product.
