Thanks to LeapFrog and #MommyParties we were sent a #LeapTV to review. Opinions are 100% my own.
We are a big fan of Leap Frog products. We have all their reading systems, and both my kids love them. So I was really excited to get the chance to review the new LeapTV system. It is on all the hot holiday toy lists, and I can understand why.
Basically, LeapTV is a gaming system that gets kids into the action while teaching core skills across a variety of subjects including: reading, mathematics, science and problem solving.
We hosted a Leap Into Gaming party and invited some friends over to play. We started out with the game: Sports! This game has 9 different sports for the kids to play, and all of them help build math skills! The curriculum auto-adjusts, to make it challenging for all age levels. This game was a HUGE hit. Favorites were snowboarding, super goalie, swimming, and karate. All the parents could see how the game was teaching math skills, but the kids had no idea!
The Dance & Learn game was next. Freeze dance was the crowd favorite here. There is also a drumming game where you complete the rhyme that was a lot of fun. This game focuses on reading skills: vocabulary, phonics, and compound words.
I think this is a great system, since it is really easy for the kids to figure out and use. Each game has a voice guided explanation, which is perfect for children who can’t quite read yet. For the motion games, it has a shadow person set up each time, to show the kids exactly where they should be standing to allow the game to work best. Considering I had a bunch of kids over who had NEVER seen the system before, they all figured out how to use it right away. Both of these games had a lot of different play options, which make you feel like you have way more than two games. Also, when you register your child during set-up, you get a bonus free game automatically!
