elph band & $125 Target Gift Card #Giveaway

Disclosure: Mail4Rosey was not compensated to help promote this giveaway and is not responsible for prize delivery.

I love the idea of an elph band. Of course you think your child is never going to get lost, but it's always better to be safe than sorry. Big crowds especially, can be overwhelming, and it only takes a second! The elph band is a very easy way to add an extra measure of security, and you can put whatever information you want to on it (even just a phone number would be great!).

ElphBandGiveaway


Welcome to the ELPH Band Giveaway Event! Mom Powered Media, ELPH Band, and fantastic group of amazing bloggers have come together to bring you this event, just in time for Halloween. Hosted by: Mom Powered Media Sponsored by: ELPH Band The ELPH Band is a link to your identifying information, such as your address, parent or guardian cell phone numbers and any other information you think is necessary, including medical conditions or drug allergies your child may have. Whether you're traveling to a theme park, zoo, park, a crowded festival or even the mall, the ELPH Band can help find your child in the event he/she gets separated from you. It only takes one second for a child to disappear out of your sight.

ElphBand_Call

The ELPH band is a non-toxic, durable, silicone wristband. It provides an immediate, highly visible form of identification with clear instructions directly on the band. It's easy to use with options to dial in or scan the QR code. ELPH Band does not put personal information, such as the child's name or phone number where people can see it when it isn't needed. What does ELPH stand for? Easy Lookup to Phone Home If your child get's separated from you, all your child needs to do is show an adult his/her ELPH band. That adult can then call the 800# or scan the QR code to get in touch with you to reunite your child with you! It's that simple! Once the QR code is scanned on a smartphone, a screen similar to the one below will pop up for them to get in touch with you.

ElphBand_Phone

To set up your ELPH band you will register it on a computer, or by scanning the QR code yourself and setting it up via your smartphone. Just a few simple questions and you will be registered. Once completed, you will get a text and email alert letting you know the account profile is active, and to verify the information has been entered correctly. ELPH Bands are available in 3 sizes: Toddler (up to 5.75 inches), Child (up to 6.5 inches), and Adult (up to 7.5 inches). They are also available in two colors, Navy or Pink.

Elph Bands are a BRILLIANT idea. I think I need to get one for each of my boys.

tracey said...

this is one of the best new things Ihave seen in awhile. I love the GPS. Thank you for a great review

Lori said...

Great price! Like that they come in 3 sizes. My lil ones need to have these.

Theresa Mahoney said...

This is so genius! It's amazing how technology is ever evolving. I remember having to write my phone number on hand in sharpie. Now kids just pop on a band and are good to go!

Pat Hatt said...

On target from target. Awesome idea

Mysharona said...

I am glad to see they have a strict privacy policy and a way to secure my data

Almost Precious said...

Since my children are all grown up now I don't have to worry about them getting lost but I do have grandchildren. Noticed that the bands come in Adult size , at the rate I'm going it may not be long before I could use one for myself.
But honestly, these could be a lifesaver for those who have Alzheimer's or dementia.

Kim Pinch said...

What a great idea, kids love wearing these kind of bands. I like that it is easy to set up and there are 2 ways for someone to contact the parents of a missing child.

Kristi Maloney said...

I've never heard of the Elph Band, maybe because my kids are older. It's a fantastic idea for sure. I would LOVE to win a gc to Target for $125! Awesome giveaway!! :)

peg42 said...

I think that this is a really good idea. Easy and the kids would like wearing these bracelets.

trisha kilpatrick said...

That is a really good idea. I hope it catches on enough so that good Samaritans know what it is and how to use it. Until enough people know what it is, it won't be much help.

Colette S said...

This is an interesting new way of a kind of Amber alert.
I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I do understand the panic of ever losing a child in a crowd.

However not everyone has a smartphone either....

I like that there is an emergency number and not the person's information right out there in the code.

Meghan said...

I learned that it stores your child's info discreetly so that people can't see your personal information unless they are trying to help with contacting you and that when you are contacted it provides you with a GPS location of your child.

clc408 said...

I like that personal information is not visible. I think this would put parent's minds at ease.

Kim Hardy said...

I think it is a great idea. Especially with the identification being private.

cloud10277 said...

I love that it doesn't display any information. You can never get enough info on a regular bracelet or sticker. This would be great to have.

Nancy Hall said...

I have not seen these before. I like that you can scan it and that no personal information for the child is on the band.

crystalf said...

I love the idea of these. I learned that they can be used for individuals with autism and older people with dementia and alzheimer's. Thank you!

sarah said...

I hadn't heard of these, so I learned that the elph bands are an easy way to store all of your contact info and have your child wear them so that they can easily be helped get back in contact with you in the even the child gets lost. I learned that you can scan a qr code on your phone and get the info that way.

guettel78 said...

I learned that they follow strict security procedures to protect your and your children's private information. I also learned that they offer a toll free number for instances when an internet connection isn't available. Also, you're able to add temporary emergency contact or other info at any time.

I read that no personal information is on the elph band itself! That's good news and smart thinking!

Denise S. said...

This sounds like a great idea. I learned that once the ELPH is purchased, registered and activated, the subscription service period is 365 days (1 year). A reminder email will be sent as the expiration period approaches. Additional one year of service subscription can be purchased at that time.

tatertot374 said...

They are available in 3 sizes. Fantastic! Thank you

Becky VanGinkel said...

I learned that the Elph Band does not put personal information, such as the child's name or phone number where people can see it when it isn't needed.. which is really awesome! Instead you can dial in or scan the QR Code for info. Love it! I have 3 children and I'd love to have one for each of them.... just one more way to protect our children :)

The Elph Bands are an amazing invention to protect the children if they get separated from parents. More people need to get involved with this.

The Mommy-Files said...

I hadn't heard of this brand before. Sounds like a great product!

Brandy C said...

I learned that it comes in 3 different sizes.

1993wel said...

I learned that you can either scan the QR code on the ELPH band or call an 800 number to contact the child's parent. I love the privacy involved -- the person calling does not see your contact info directly, but is able to get in touch with you.

Lisa Voyce said...

I learned there are two methods that the band can provide information to contact the parents. One can either call the parents or scan the code to get the parent's information. Such a great idea.

Kim Hilbert said...

I like that it has all the information on it or simply call the parents. While I'm no longer worried about losing my child, I work in a school that has only students with special needs. I'm sure those families would love to hear about this nifty little band.

jwx4 said...

What a neat product. I think it's awesome that it has a 1800 number and a QR code that gives an emergency contact number for your child.

Jodi said...

i really like that the personal information is not visible to just anyone. i also like that it comes in three sizes, I think it is a very neat idea.

Leslie said...

I learned they tied for first place in a Innovation contest and were given funding to build and launch the band.It's such an amazing idea. :)

bbrittbrat1398 said...

I like that it comes in three sizes. I could get one for all of my children.

Madison Frady said...

I love this idea and I learned that the parents information is not visible to just anyone. I like that idea. I think that this is awesome for school field trips or family outings. Or just about anywhere your child could get lost this is a great idea. I always have a fear my child will wonder off.

Robin T said...

I love that it has an app for your mobile phone. This product really gives me piece of mind when taking my son to crowded events.

Tammie Venne said...

Stephanie Larison said...

I learned once the ELPH is purchased, registered and activated, the subscription service period is 365 days

Karen Drake said...

I learned that Customer data such as guardian and dependent information are not shared with third parties.

Megan Filzen said...

I think this is really important. They emphasis the importance of privacy and provides a safe way to handle someones information!

Angela Ash said...

I learned and like that the child's info is hidden until it's needed by calling or scanning the QR code. It's also very affordable at only $19.99 for the year, which includes the service.

susan1215 said...

I like this idea. I learned that ELPH Band does not put personal information, such as the child's name or phone number where people can see it when it isn't needed. I also like that it comes in three sizes

Angela Cisco said...

It is a great buy at 19.99. My kids have already outgrown the need but I have a friend with what he likes to refer to as sometimers that could use this.

Melanie Comello said...

i learned that their subscription period lasts for 365 days.

Melanie Comello said...

Sorry hit publish before i was finished lol, Also, if you lose your band, you can buy another one at a discount and they will use whatever remaining subscription you have left on the new band.

Michelle J said...

I learned that the ELPH Band protects the child's info by not placing personal information, such as the child's name or phone number where people can see it when it isn't needed. The product is such a great idea!

Susan Smoaks said...

Thanks for the giveaway…in addition to emergency contact info, the ELPH band allows you to register special conditions of your child into the database, such as medical conditions, allergies or other special requirements.

Very clear instructions are directly on the band.
