Leap Frog is an educational toy company that makes a lot of tech for little ones that look and work a lot like the items mom and dad use. While mom and dad have the Gear 2 smartwatch or maybe a Pebble, kids can soon get the Leap Band.

 

Leap Band is a wearable device aimed at kids 4-7 years old that aims to promote playtime. It looks like a game to kids where activity helps feed and care for a virtual pet. For parents it's an activity tracker to make it easier to figure out if your kid is getting enough exercise. The Leap Band will sell for $39.99 and is offer in three colors with a ship date sometime in August.
