    "You guys are geniuses, and have definitely taken a huge bite out of the daily stress of parenthood! THANK YOU!" - Ilene, mother of two

    BOB is the answer to the endless fight over screen time struggles in today's home. BOB works by controlling power to any electronic device. The device plugs into BOB, within a key-locked compartment. The parent then programs BOB with each child's daily or weekly time limits. Each BOB has up to 6 unique user accounts. Each child can turn on the device using their own access code. Once time is up, BOB automatically shuts off the device. Parents can turn the device on at any time by using the master code and even access a report on how the children are using their allotted time.

    Access Codes can be changed as often as you like; one mother rewarded her son's finished homework or chores with his new daily code!

    The device truly empowers children to control their own time while still allowing parents to set limits. No more fighting about "five more minutes"! BOB is child proof and hack proof; even the most tech-savvy kids won't be able to unplug a device from BOB!

    Less screen time = better health & better grades!
    Less arguing = happier and healthier family!

    it 100% talks away kids rights. think about it your in the middle of a game and it shuts off and goes all your progress. terrible product if you think about buying it don't we are stuck with it the beep won't shut up, and kids have no rights. if you were working on something for a long time (especially online) you on the hardest part of a mission and it took so long to get there, shuts off and kids have no rights.also it is a scam, the company who made this makes terrible frisbes etc. so you buy there other products. when it shuts off it will lead to more arguments for more time. so it is a win for money, a loss for parents and for kids it is miserable it turns a good game into a game you love but can't play i am a victim of that with the great and awesome game Destiny. I loved it and now i can't play without worry of losing all my progress. and i love the game but can't play. I'm writing this so other kids don't cry themselves to sleep. parents don't give you kids stress while playing a video game or watching tv you play video games for good time right, not with the bob during the game all your thinking is how much longer do i have. When you watch tv you relax right, again not with the bob you are crammed to find a show instantly to not waste time. so if you watch tv in the morning for one hour and a half, times up. Then you play sports for two hours then read for 45 minutes and all you want to do is sit back and watch tv you can't. i have all of this to prove the bob increases stress on kids and adults. It also can't let you relax if you use your small amount of time in the morning and after 2:45 hours of activity you can't relax and watch tv. I'm saying this to save money get away some stress of yours and your kids. so in total, Don't Buy This Stupid Product with a bad name seriously bob?

    Shipping time was ok, not fast but definately not slow. Was satisfied. The only let down was the $26.00 duty I had to pay, I thought electronics were covered under the free-trade agreement and thus exempt or at least minimized.

    Worked great .. for awhile. After about 5 weeks of use, the screen has gone completely blank. I can not reset any passwords, give or take away fly-time or see how much time is remaining, though codes are still working and it does stop the time as originally set when the screen worked. Trying to contact Hopscotch Technology for a remedy under their 1 year warranty ...

    I think its the worst device ever. You take away childrens rights. It also is a scam! The people who make this device also make toys for kids to play outside with. All they want you to do is force your kids to play outside with the toys they make. This product IS A TERRIBLE DEVICE!!!

    This is exactly what I had been looking for. No more fighting about when to watch TV or play video games. Now when I want to turn it off I just push one button, not try wrestle the remote away from my son.

    Doesn't turn off all the time. If you forget you password, no reset, no batterie inside the thing so you screwed. Avoid. Could damage computer or anything with a hard drive inside also. Bye a timer and lock it in a box instead, it will me less expensive and more efficient.

    I live in australia, was not informed this product does not comply with AU standards so renders the product useless. Smarthome should inform customers of this before sending out electrical products, not happy at all with smarthome for not disclosing this information
