There’s a nifty little device being sold at Best Buy which keeps track of your kids everywhere they go. It’s called the Little Buddy GPS Tracker and it uses global satellite positioning and cellphone technnology to help parents keep track of kids. And the best part is, parents can place the Little Buddy just about anywhere from backpacks to lunch boxes to even stick it into their pockets when they aren’t looking.
About the size of a USB thumb drive, the Little Buddy transmits GPS location data where parents can monitor a child’s whereabouts. And for $100, it’s a very affordable way to keep track of busy kids who can lose track of time and don’t show up when parents expect them to. It even has an SMS Text message option which will alert parents when children leave the designated area.
And the device is so popular, that Best Buy can’t keep it in stores. It’s on back order already.
