Prima Toys South Africa has just announced the launch of the Leapfrog LeapBand, the first wearable activity tracker for kids, to get them active and learning whist having the most awesome time doing so.
The LeapBand combines playful physical activities with a personalised virtual pet to encourage them to keep going, and track their progress.
With over 50 different activities and challenges the child’s physical movements are tracked through the LeapBand, so the more active the child is, the more points their earn with their virtual pet.
As the child earns points through play, they can unlock additional games, challenges, levels of play and virtual rewards. The band is styled with kids in mind, including an accelerometer, high resolution colour screen, rechargeable battery and water-resistant design. The device also doubles up as both a cool digital and analogue watch.
With fun activities such as ‘leap like a frog’, ‘pop like a popcorn’, or ‘spin like a helicopter’ and many, many more, ,kids will love the interactive aspect of getting fit.
Leapband is available at all leading retail outlets at the recommended retail price of R499.00
