Do you have young kids who love video games? Do you struggle with balancing letting them play these games they love and wanting them to spend more time learning? Well, if this sounds familiar then the brand new LeapTV is for you! Leapfrog has been making educational books, games and toys for years and has been successfully linking fun and learning together for all kids to enjoy! Leapfrog’s newest leaning venture is one of there best ones yet: LeapTV! LeapTV gets little minds and bodies working together in a fun, exciting and interactive way! We have been absolutely loving this system for so many reasons. It truly is the perfect mix of learning and moving .
LeapTV is designed for kids aged 3 to 8. It has simple instructions, an easy to work controller, guided help and age specific areas to their games. This gaming system can be played in three ways: classically with the easy to hold controller, with the controller like a pointer and then actively with their bodies. One of the best parts is that when the games begin, the motion sensing camera has the child line themselves up so it can accurately read the height of each child which makes it perfect for little kids of all sizes! Also, it gears the question and answer options on your child’s ages, so a preschooler may only have two options of answers while a 1st grader may have 4. It is also easy to install and set up!
LeapTV’s games help to blend kids natural love of moving and grooving with learning and helping to grow their math, science, and reading skills. All of their games mix motion into how the kids choose their responses, so if they are asking what is 2+2, instead of just typing 4, they have to jump up and reach for it! It’s such a fun way to keep your kids moving and learning, while letting them get in that video game time that they are always begging you for.
When our LeapTV arrived, my kids could not WAIT to get it open! We invited over a few friends and had a “Leap into Gaming!” party and the kids couldn’t get enough of playing! They really loved all designing and taking care of their own pets in Pet Play World, dancing and rhyming in Dance & Learn and combining math and sports in LeapTV Sports. These particular games have a suggested age range of 4-7, but believe it or not, my 9 year old has been having lots of fun playing too! Granted, the questions are easier for her, but she loves playing and interacting just as much.
I really love how LeapTV has age-appropriate play with games that feature kid-friendly themes and play patterns that will keep your kids engaged and
actively learning ann the while, encouraging them to point, jump, swipe and wiggle which is helping to reinforce their learning through movement! LeapTV can also grows with your child. When you enter your child’s age at the beginning, the games will automatically adapt to each individual child which helps to keep kids learning at just the right level of challenge.
LeapTV currently has over 100 games to choose from too, so you are sure to find some that your kids are interested in! This new gaming system is really perfect for those tech savvy younger kids that want to connect with video games, but are not ready for those “bigger kid” themes. It would make the BEST family Christmas gift too! It surely would keep the gift of learning all year long! Want to learn more about the new LeapTV gaming system?
