This post is brought to you by Panasonic.
Many years ago when my first grandchild was just a baby, he lived very far away from me. I looked around for a way to still participate in his life, even though he was in Texas and I was in Georgia. What I decided to do was rent a video recorder and video myself reading books to him, just as if he was sitting in my lap. Then, I mailed the books and the tape to my son, who played them in a VCR on their TV. This was in the days before cellphones and digital cameras, only a short 18 years ago. My Home Team by Panasonic now makes this possible to do online.
Panasonic’s new app, My HomeTeam.com that lets you connect with your family around the world, is available on tablets and desktops, but not on mobile yet. The My HomeTeam App lets family members who are scattered around the world stay connected, and make reading and story time for the kids and grandkids a fun time, where everyone can participate. Grandparents today can “be there” even if they are separated my thousands of miles. Read a storybook, plan a party, or give the little ones ideas for their Halloween costume.
Panasonic is encouraging families to make room for a little brain candy this Halloween, to #MakeReadingLessScary in the midst of all the trick or treating. My HomeTeam can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play or MyHomeTeam.com. After a one-month free trial, a subscription to HomeTeam costs $8.99 per month and can be shared with up to five family members. HomeTeam is a premier entertainment service that connects loved ones across generations and distance through video chat with reading and games. With abundant game and book title content options to choose from, family members engage in enriching activities together via tablet or desktop interactions. HomeTeam is developed by Panasonic Health & Wellness Solutions in North America.
