As the weather gets nicer here in Michigan, my family and I have been spending a lot of time outside. We love taking walks outside, and my brothers especially love playing all kinds of sports in the yard. At times however, it can be difficult to get my youngest brother and nephew out of the house and away from their video games! Getting them together for a walk outside is a simple way to help keep them active, but it doesn’t always have to be as boring as they make it out to be. The GeoPalz pedometer is the perfect solution for helping kids stay active.
What is GeoPalz?
GeoPalz is an online rewards platform with a pedometer, that can be worn on your child’s hip or shoe, which helps track your child’s activity each day. Each GeoPalz pedometer comes with its own registration key that your child can use for their first time registration. The pedometer tracks your child’s overall steps which convert into points that they can redeem for prizes! GeoPalz is a great incentive to help your child stay active!
How Does it Work?
Each GeoPalz comes with its own registration key that allows your child to view their progress online, where they can also redeem their points for prizes! For every mile your child walks (approximately 2,500 steps) your child collects 1 point. Points are redeems for FREE prizes including: frisbees, tacky sacks, plush soccer balls, baseballs, etc.- prizes are designed to get kids outside and moving!
What I love about GeoPalz is that parents can get in on the action, too. Parents can incentivize their children to stay active by jointly selecting any item from Amazon.com. To do this, you will need to drag that item to the GeoPalz prize wall and designate how many steps your child needs to win that prize. Once your child reaches that goal, they add the item to their basket and them parents are notified via email in order to purchase that item from Amazon.com. It’s such a cool feature.
My nephew, age 6, has diabetes so it’s important for him to stay active to help balance his blood-glucose levels. I thought that GeoPalz was the perfect way to help get him off of his video games and outside. He’s was so excited to try out GeoPalz and was even more excited when I told him that he could get free prizes! Registering our GeoPalz was easy, and within minutes he was already headed for the door, ready to walk outside.
I know that he’s going to continue to use his GeoPalz and it’s such a great incentive for him, too. I’m excited to see his progress and what kind of cool prizes he’s going to win in the coming months! I think GeoPalz is a great gift idea for any child. GeoPalz come in a variety of designs and colors and are intended for children ages 5-12.
GeoPalz retails for $25
