Halloween is such a fun time in our family. NewsyDad actually hated the "holiday" before kids, so much so that I bought him a t-shirt that said "This is my costume." He still gets compliments on it to this day.

Since having our girls, we have really gotten into the spirit of Halloween. We enjoy dressing up. We like carving pumpkins or decorating them with stickers. One of the best things is trick-or-treating. But this could also be a scary time. What if they got lost among the other Elsa's? What if they walked away with their friends? What if we couldn't find them? No worries. Learn about this great new bracelet that can help keep your kids safe this Halloween. But not just at Halloween... but also during field trips, summer camp and those magical trips to Disney.

ElphBandGiveaway Welcome to the ELPH Band Giveaway Event!

Hosted by: Mom Powered Media | Sponsored by: ELPH Band

Mom Powered Media, ELPH Band, and a fantastic group of amazing bloggers have come together to bring you this giveaway, just in time for Halloween.

It only takes one second for a child to disappear out of your sight. Whether you're at Disney, the mall or trick-or-treating this Halloween, there are plenty of situations where your child could disappear in moments. Now, there's new product that can help track him/her down without exposing your most important information. It's called ELPH Band. What does ELPH stand for? Easy Lookup to Phone Home.

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.


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. ELPH Band does not put personal information, such as the child's name or phone number where people can see it. Instead, those who find your child can either to dial the number or scan the QR code both found on the band.

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 number or scan the QR code to contact you. 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.


To set up your ELPH band, you will need to either register it on a computer or scan the QR code. Answer a few simple questions and you'll be ready to go. 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.
