Q:Did anyone else purchase a screen protector for it? Or do you feel it’s necessary? I see these are available on Amazon.

A:

no, I didn’t purchase one, just worked with the kids so they take care of their device. so far no problems

Q:Does it require batteries or does it come with the equipment to charge it? Also, how long do the batteries or charge last?

A:

it is chargeable, and it last about a day great to charge while they sleep.

Q:Do I have to download anything or is it all in the watch?

A:

LeapBand works right out of the box, however to utilize all of LeapBands capabilites like custom activites and quiet time a sync to your PC and LeapFrog Connect would be required.

Q:Do you let your child wear it at school? Is it a problem there?

A:

Quiet Time can be set directly on LeapBand and like School Time and Night Time modes, turns all functionality off and displays the analog clock.

Q:Do you get a visual cue for the movement challenges? can a non-English speaking child use it without understanding the verbal instructions?

A:

I gave it to a child who could not read English (or speak it) and her mother told me that the cues were not adequate unfortunately. Hopefully my recipient (6 yrs) will learn to read a little before she outgrows it!

Q:My leapfrog watch, some how lock itself how do I unlock it.

A:

My son connects it to the charger and press the star key

Q:my daughter is turning 6 I am just wondering if she is to old for it or not?

A:

No she is not too old. My 7 year old loves it

Q:Does it have a time or watch setting/function?

A:

Yes

Q:would a 3 year old get any use out of this or is it mostly for older children??

A:

I’m not sure. I bought for a 5 year old, for Christmas. It was a wish list item. Sorry i am not more helpful.

Q:Is this suitable for a 3 year old?

A:

Yes

Q:Why is the green LeapBand $29.97 and the pink one is $30.99??

A:

Probably supply/demand or different sellers. It’s not unusual to see that on Amazon.

It’s just a dollar, though. Better to not to stress about it.

Q:What is the maximum wrist size that this fits? My daughter has a thick wrist and knowing the max strap length in inches would be very helpful.

A:

LeapBands wrist strap minimum is 0.9Hx1.57W (inches) and maximum 1.77Hx2.04W (inches) it was developed to fit up to the 95th percentile of 7 year olds. If the band is not a good fit for your little ones, you can also attach it to a belt loop or backpack strap, and remove it to use as a handheld device as needed.

Q:Does this have a camera?

A:

No

Q:does this actually have a watch feature on it? That would help kids learn how to tell time?

A:

Yes! LeapBand offers an analog clock function that can help kids learn telling time.

Q:I know it says age 4, but do you think a 2.5 year old could work it? 4.5 year old wants one for Christmas,thought I’d better get his sister too.

A:

My niece is 2.5 and she absolutely loves it! She doesn’t really understand all the functionality – but having a cool watch is about the most impressive thing you could give her. I think this is great, because she’ll eventually learn all the functions and appreciate even more. Of course if you give to an older brother/sister, the younger one will learn even faster.

Q:Age range is 4 – 7. But do you think it may be too young for a 7 year old?

A:

It would depend on the maturity level of the 7 year old and how tech savvy they are but I would say it would be fine for most 7 year olds. Of course a 7 year old will not get as many years use out of it before they get tired of it as a 4 year old would.

Q:Will this be too young for a 7 year old? What you all say the age max is? thanks

A:

My 6 year old daughter thought it was a lot of fun. But all 3 of my kids were mostly bored with it just a few weeks after it arrived.

Q:Looks cute, would purchase one for my 5 year old, my 2 year old is going to want one too. Would a 2 year old very verbal girl get anything out of it?

A:

My 6 yr old Daughter has it and plays with it a bit, but her 3 yr old brother has not shown very much interest…it’s really not age appropriate for kids under 4 or 5.

Q:What is LeapFrog connect – is it some kind of computer program that you need to use the Leap Bank?

A:

LeapFrog Connect is a website on the Internet.

Q:is there more than 1 language setting?

A:

No, there is only one language setting for LeapBand.
