Did you know that an alarming 75% of kids in the U.S. don’t receive the necessary amount of daily activity and this is the first generation of kids that is not expected to live longer than their parents?! Scary! That’s why LeapFrog introduced LeapBand, the first activity tracker for kids 4-7.

Inspired by the Partnership for a Healthier America and First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, the LeapBand activity tracker gets kids moving and having fun with 50 different 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 levels of play and virtual rewards for their on-screen pet. LeapBand has an adjustable wrist strap designed with children in mind, and high-tech features including a built-in accelerometer, a high-resolution color screen, a rechargeable battery and water-resistant design, making it the ultimate activity wearable for kids.

Availability

The LeapBand activity tracker (MSRP $39.99, for children 4 to 7 years old) is available in green, pink and blue in the U.S. online and at major retail locations. Activities and challenges are free and available for download via LeapFrog Connect for LeapBand.
