There are so many things you have to do to get ready for back to school time. Thankfully, TracFone is making one part of this super easy with their new LG Sunrise Android™ Smartphone TMNT Bundle. This is a sponsored post partnership with TracFone.

The school year just got cooler! TracFone has partnered with Nickelodeon to launch its first ever Back to School Limited Edition Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle LG Sunrise™ Android™ smartphone bundle.

There is clothes shopping, school supply shopping and then the very important cell phone shopping when you are getting your tween ready for school. Shopping for a cell phone for your teen or tween takes a bit of extra effort, or at least it used to before TracFone offered the LG Sunrise Android™ Smartphone TMNT Bundle.

This bundle will thrill kids and parents!

The bundle offers parents the peace of mind they need with one free year of the NQ Family Guardian App (valued at $34.99), and the fun features kids want with exclusive access to a TMNT episode, app and game and a Limited Edition Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Phone Case.

It’s also available for a limited time for only $29.99 at participating Walmart and Target stores. Pretty cool right?

The girls love the phone.

The case is beyond what you could imagine… it’s adorable! And they are already having fun with the camera and the case!

Plus the exclusive code to download a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles app and episode is really cool. The girls were really excited about that. A first phone is a big deal and making it special, like this one does, helps kids understand the importance of always having their phone with them. It was really easy to set up and for the kids to use <— which is VERY important for first time phone owners.

Take a close look at this case. I can’t believe how awesome they made this!

While the girls loved the phone itself and all of its features, I loved the one free year of NQ Family Guardian™… the parental control app for some serious peace of mind.

Here are the awesome features for parents:

  1. Check-In. When your child opens the app and taps the “Check-in” button, you’ll receive a message with their current location.
  2. Monitor. You can choose what to keep track of on your child’s phone: calls, texts, pictures, apps, and browser history.
  3. Schedule. Set what times your child is allowed to use different features of their phone so they can stay focused and engaged.

Contact Filter. Block specific phone numbers from calling or messaging your child to help keep them protected from strangers.

TracFone offers a great value with their 90-Day No-Contract Plans with Talk, Text & Data too.

They start at $19.99, (average cost of $7/month*) and you can switch to a new plan at any time with no penalties—all with no contracts, no overages, no activation fees and no cancellation fees. We bought a couple of the $19.99 service plans when we bought our bundle. I love how convenient it is to buy them. They are available at most national retail stores and online at

Be sure to visit Walmart to purchase your own LG Sunrise Android™ Smartphone TMNT Bundle.

Have you started back to school shopping yet?

  • Looks like a great phone for a tween. Isn’t back to school overwhelming though for the entire family? We’re not even thinking about it yet, as we still have our family vacation to look forward to.

  • Not yet! School starts on September 1st here so it’s coming up.

    This phone would be perfect for my tween. She’s always asking to use mine!

  • I think kids of that age should have a phone. With all the dangerous things happening at schools lately, I want my child to have a way to contact the outside world in case of an emergency.

  • My daughter uses a tracfone and she is 20! She just doesn’t feel the need to be addicted to her phone, so she keeps it as a tracfone 🙂 Simple is better sometimes!

  • I think every kid this age needs a cell phone for emergencies and to stay in contact with their parents. Using Tracfone is a great idea to cut costs.

  • That case!!! Oh man, that case!! This is such a great deal! Nice way to get a phone for the kids without breaking your budget!

  • My kids aren’t old enough to have a phone yet, but when they do, I’ll be going a route like this. Regular phone plans are just way too expensive.

  • This looks so cool! I might consider getting this for my 9 yr old who has been bugging for a phone. Might make my 7 & 5 yr old mad since he loves ninja turtles.

  • Oh my heart! My boys would completely freak out for that case and phone! They keep asking me for their own phone. My oldest may actually be reaching the age where a limited phone may be a good idea.

  • Our school starts in two weeks. I can’t believe that! My son is a little too young for a phone yet, but he will be getting something like this.

  • What a great phone! I wish we had something like that here in CANADA. With my son hitting his teens I worry. This phone has soo many great features!

  • TracFone looks like an ideal starter phone for kids, especially at such an awesome price. I really love that Check In feature!

  • That case is not only adorable, I bet it’s practical and protective too! I can’t believe how affordable TracFone plans are!

  • I tell you, have heard great things about that tracfone. I don’t have a tween, but my brother-in-law does, so I will be mentioning this to him

  • TracFone is a fantastic idea. I would have loved this when my kids were younger.

  • This is such a great cell phone for kids. I will have to look into getting one for my daughters. I love that it has a check in button.

  • I think Tracphone is a great idea for kids in school. They don;t have apps and wouldn’t be as distracted in class.

  • I’ll have to check this phone out for my tween. He sometimes needs a phone, but I don’t want to invest in something he may lose or break.

  • I remember getting my first cell phone when I was 14–my mom gave it to me after I was lost downtown in the city, and I had to call her crying from a grocery store phone to have her come pick me up. Technology is so crucial for communication, and getting tweens ready for the world with the newest cell phones is key to making their adolescence a little bit easier.

  • What a great product I have not heard about to date! What a great way to get a teenager ready for back to school! I think all school aged children should have one of these, especially for safety and security!

  • Keeping track of the kids’ location is awesome so you would worry less and monitor their activies with much convenience. Having control in their schedule is also one great feature of the app.

  • My tween grandson would absolutely love that phone. He is getting to that age where it’s almost time for his first phone and he would be crazy over that case. How cool!

  • Tracfone was my first phone and it got the job done! I am sure her’s has many more frills than my pink one had back in the day!

  • What a fun phone! I told my oldest I would get her a phone when she turns 12. I can hold out 1 more year! But I will look into the tracfone next year.

  • We haven’t started with our back-to-school shopping yet. I think we’ll start this weekend. I can’t believe it’s almost back-to-school!

  • Clap Clap Clap for your kids getting TracFones and not Iphones! I think kids are too young for such an expensive phone with an expensive monthly bill to match this is perfect!

  • This looks awesome. Wish we had it here I would have gotten something like this for my oldest. He would love a phone like this! We haven’t started our shopping yet we have until September 8th!

  • What an awesome phone! My 8 year old has been asking for a phone lately. Lol, I thought about him as soon as I read this but he’s still not quite old enough I dont think!
