Not many things I have seen over the past few weeks have attracted my attention but when I saw LeapTV yesterday I just knew it would be something the girls would enjoy.
LeapTV aimed at children aged 3-8, provides a video game experience that is filled with learning and active play. With easy to use hardware and software designed specifically for children’s little hands with a simple and intuitive interface, 3 ways to play and access to a library of 100+ educator-approved games and videos all for a price of £119.99 I know it will be popular this Christmas.

Three Unique Ways to Play

The LeapTV video game system puts learning in motion with three ways to play: body motion, pointer play and classic control.

·         Body Motion: Children become the star of their own game. The motion-sensing camera captures a child’s moves and instantly puts them into the game as they explore activities like dance and martial arts. Children can run, hop and tip-toe or wave their arms to defend goals, karate-chop fast-moving blocks, scuba dive and more.
·         Pointer Play: Pointer play takes pretend play to new levels of engagement. The controller transforms into a pointer with a simple twist and lets kids snap jungle vines, slice through coconuts, swing from building to building and more. 
·         Classic Control: Classic control puts fun at a child’s fingertips. They can press the A and B buttons for fast-paced gaming, or tilt and shake the controller to navigate through an enchanted garden or race in a classic kart-racing game.

Gaming Just Got Smarter

The LeapTV video game system gets kids into the action while teaching a range of skills across reading, maths, science and problem solving. LeapTV provides access to LeapFrog’s Learning Library of 100+ game cartridges, game downloads and videos all designed or approved by LeapFrog’s team of gaming and learning experts. Unique to LeapFrog, the Learning Team includes a full-time in-house team of five learning experts, all with PhDs in various specialties including education, child development and educational psychology.
