Creating lasting connections with loved ones with Panasonic HomeTeam™, which makes it easy to have conversations, read books, and even play games with friends and relatives who are far away… all from the convenience of a tablet or computer!
I never really understood the power of a relationship between grandparents and grandchildren until I had my own kids. And I saw the way they love cuddling and playing and laughing together, the way my mom’s eyes light up when she’s reading them a story, the way my dad can’t help but capture them as “his prisoner,” the way my kids can’t contain their excitement when we’re going to see Grandma & Grandpa. And I realized that the love I feel for each of them, they also feel for one another. It really is pretty amazing…
And we’re incredibly lucky when it comes to where we live in relation to the grandparents. 5 minutes from one set and 25 from the other… not too bad, all things considered. But the reality is, even living so close, we don’t see any of them as often as we’d like to! Schedules are busy and kids need naps and – heck – it’s still 25 minutes away, and we don’t always feel like driving!
Which is exactly where HomeTeam comes in. HomeTeam is an online service from Panasonic that includes video chat, popular children’s books, and fun and engaging multiplayer games. So it allows them to do all the things they love doing together – talking, laughing, reading, playing games – without actually being in the same place! Because the fact is that many grandparents don’t live in the same city or even state as their grandchildren, and there’s a lot more standing in their way of seeing one another than just a car ride.
When we tried it out the other day, my kids had a blast playing Animal Match, Tic-Tac-Toe, and Go Fish with Grandpa and reading 10 Bears with Grandma. It was so nice for them to be spending quality time with one another, and I loved the fact that the ongoing video chat allowed me to be part of it, too. It felt natural – the way it would feel if we were all together. It really was the next best thing!
Have I piqued your interest? I thought so. The good news is HomeTeam will be available for download in the App Store and Google Play on March 24. Just in time for you to download it… and then have fun talking, reading, laughing, playing, and connecting!
