My five year old daughter Paige loves music! She has made a habit of stealing my iPhone and listening to my music and dancing around the house! Of course this makes me nervous for many reasons! First of all, did I mention SHE HAS MY IPHONE? Scary! Second of all; she’s wearing headphones, and dancing, and spinning. This has resulted in many falls and bumps and bruises. That’s why I was super excited to learn about Jambanz!
Jambanz is a bluetooth speaker just like many others out there BUT it is worn on the wrist! This makes it safer for kids for so many reasons! Obviously there is no more getting tangled up in the headphone wires since it’s wireless. Secondly, it’s on the wrist so the hands are free to balance, catch themselves if they do fall and do other things at the same time. It does still require a source for the music but at least I can tuck my phone safely in a pocket or on another armband so that Paige doesn’t drop it.
When I showed this to her, she thought it was the coolest thing ever, and she’s only five! I am sure that teens and tweens would love it! The only thing she didn’t love was the color. “Why isn’t it pink mama?” Right now it’s available in three colors: orange, black and green. Hopefully they do come out with other colors that are more girly to appeal to a larger group. Of course once I showed Paige how it worked and that she could listen to “her” music, all discussion of color was forgotten.
It’s not the best sound I have ever heard but it’s much better than I expected coming from something so small. And you can’t beat the price of $29.99 so I actually think you get more than what you pay for all things considered.
I think the best thing about it is it’s that slap on design where there are no hooks or anything tricky to connect it so Paige can slap it on herself and it adjusts to her wrist size and stays on!
You do need to charge it first but the battery lasts about an hour once fully charged. That’s an hour of a happy, dancing Paige which is an hour of a happy mom!
Jambanz is a super fun way for kids to safely listen to their music and I think it would appeal to kids/teens/tweens of all ages this Christmas. What a fun stocking stuffer!
World’s First Bluetooth “Slapband” Speaker Can Now Be Yours
Wearable, Wireless Speaker Eliminates Headphones for Active Kids on the Go
ATLANTA, GA (July 2014) – Jambanz™, the world’s first Bluetooth wristband speaker, has officially launched. Combining the fun of a “slapband” with a wireless speaker, Jambanz™ allows music to go anywhere.
By syncing with all Bluetooth capable devices, Jambanz™ frees your music from your iPod touch™, iPad™, iPhone™ or Bluetooth Android, so that kids of all ages can wear their music on their wrist or ‘slap’ it on a bicycle, scooter and backpack, or wherever they see fit. As an alternative to headphones, Jambanz™ eliminates the frustration of tangled wires for active kids and, safety-wise, eliminates headphone caused hearing damage and distraction from surrounding dangers. Socially, Jambanz™ encourages kids to safely enjoy their music and express themselves by sharing their music with friends.

“As a father of a 10 year old daughter, Emma, I am well aware of her group’s love for music. I started looking into options for her so she could listen to her favorite tunes while playing with friends, outside, on her bike and more. I quickly realized there was nothing on the market for a kids’ lifestyle. The proof is in the pudding…Emma and her friends are Jambanz™ junkies! I am looking forward to more and more kids having fun with Jambanz,” explains owner and founder Lee Killian.
