What is Handee Band?

  • Handee Band is a four foot long, six pound resistance band with hand prints printed on the band
  • You can purchase just the band, or, you can choose from one of their several kits: Handee Band Exercise Kit, Handee Band Exercise Cards, Handee Band Teacher Pack, or Handee Band Family Pack.

Why is the Handee Band Beneficial for Kids?

Handee Band was created by Francesca, a pediatric OT who was looking for a creative way to engage the children in her clinic in upper-body/core strengthening and play. When she couldn’t find what she was looking for, she decided to make it herself.

As a result, Handee Band was born – an exercise kit for children aged 3-7 and up.

We recently had the opportunity to try out this fun exericise kit with our girls (ages one through eight) and they absolutely loved it!

We tried out the Handee Band Exercise Kit for Kids which included:

  • One Handee Band
  • 15 Handee illustrated exercises with easy to follow 5-step directions (with adorable illustrations!!)
  • Reusable dry erase Handee checklist, to track progress (the kids loved checking off the boxes as they completed each exercise)
  • One dry erase Handee marker (that didn’t smell like some dry erase markers do!)
  • One Handee Band spinner board game (that fits perfectly in the vinyl bag in the back of your Handee Band exercise kit for safe keeping)
  • 16 stickers of each Handee Band character, to have fun with when taking a break from exercise (the kids loved these as well)

I loved that the flip book was sturdy, included lots of colorful and fun graphics, stood up well, and really motivated the kids to exercise.

The company also sells exercise cards which would also be Handee (pun intended ๐Ÿ˜‰ to keep in the car, diaper bag, or purse for fun on the go.

The flip book and spinner game were so fun for the kids – you could either just flip through the book and select exercises to do, or, you could spin the spinner and see which exercise the spinner lands on.

The kids have been having SO.MUCH.FUN with the Handee Band. They even made up a few of their own exercises. And, thanks to Miss 8’s love of Little House on the Prairie, she turned the Handee Band into horse reins and her and Miss 5 have been playing horse all over the living room the past several days.

I love that there are two perfectly placed handprints on the Handee Band so children know exactly where to place their hands.

Because we don’t have a yard for the kids, I like to keep fun things on hand to keep the kids active until we can get outside for the day. Handee Band is now a staple in our “stay active” bin in the living room.

I love that Handee Band encourages children of all ages to exercise. Honestly, they make it so fun and easy to get the wiggles out that I would highly recommend it to every family.
