Introducing TheO SmartBall!
Kids today love their technology and my children are no different. My kids would spend all day playing with their tablets if I allowed it. One of the reasons I limit their tablet time is because it seriously cuts into their physical activity time. Our family, as a whole, really needs more physical activity time. Health and fitness has become a real priority in our home. When I came across TheO SmartBall I decided to give it a try. My Monkey, he’s 4, loves his tablet time but desperately needs the physical activity to expend his overabundance of energy.
TheO SmartBall is an awesome and fun toy that incorporates physical activity and tablet time. With TheO SmartBall you use your current device (smartphone, tablet, etc) and download their kid learning apps. Their apps are games that call for physical movement (think along the lines of the Nintendo Wii). The ball is made from a durable foam so the device stays protected and no one gets hurt.
I have four children but the child that enjoyed this the most was my Monkey. He’s 4 years old and loves everything about TheO SmartBall. My girls are 8 and 10 and thought that the ball was too “baby-ish” (they prefer Minecraft). My 5 year old enjoyed playing with his brother but wasn’t overly interested in playing with it by himself. I think TheO SmartBall is perfect for preschool kids! It truly encourages movement and games in a fun and entertaining way! My one and only complaint is that my Galaxy S4 is too big for this ball. My older iPhone 4 worked just fine!
Here’s the best part! The company sent me an extra one to give away! One lucky reader will be proud owner of a TheO SmartBall! Here’s what you need to do:
