Let's talk about Gameband Minecraft, shall we?
First, I know I worry a lot about how much video games my kids play-- as most moms do. Kids these days are so engrossed in electronics that they lose hours...sometimes days in summer if we let them. One fact that helps me is the Journal of Adolescent Research published a study recently comparing kids that played video games to those that didn't.
Did you know:
YES! Yep, I will take a big heaping serving of that in our busy lives as these kids grow up too fast.
Speaking of family closeness, Minecraft is the one game that I have never felt guilty as a mother letting my kids play. It is the place that my oldest son first connected with his younger brother . They created their own land and co-existed in a plane whereas in life, they bicker and tease. Heck my eldest even bought his little brother a Minecraft T-shirt last year for Christmas.
It also encourages them to stretch their imagination, engineer lands, and so much more. So I was excited to hear about a new must-have accessory, the Gameband Minecraft™, for my youngest to take his Minecraft world anywhere.Yes, you heard right: Portable Minecraft! I am not going to lie--it took me a while to find it because it is that new and that hot of a holiday ticket item, but I scored it at GameStop. They had JUST got them in. And? Someone was SUPER excited I scored big at GameStop so he got to check out this holiday gift early.
The Gameband Minecraft™ is more than just a USB, Gameband is truly the first-ever Minecraft wearable. It lets my son take his worlds literally with him to build, imagine, and play Minecraft anywhere, anytime.
It comes in two sizes and is splash proof too. Bonus? It also backs up his worlds onto their secure, cloud-based server. If he were to lose it? We can contact Now Computing and order a replacement with all his data still there!
The feature my son is loving the most? Gameband Minecraft™ has PixelFurnace included which is an App that lets him make his Gameband his very own. He can customize it with messages, images and animations that he created.
And it's a watch!! Yep, anyone with a middle school kid knows that getting them to be timely can be a struggle, but he is loving this part fashion, part tech, customizable band that shows off his geekery, his pixel designs including his name, and tells him the time of day too.
