Disney’s Minnie Bow-tique game for Leappad/Leapster

Last week I was given a code to download a free copy of Disney’s Minnie Bow-tique game. This was a bit of a challenge for me as we have only ever used cartridge games before and had never even connected the Leappad to the computer.

After downloading the software, updating the leappad and finally getting my head round where to put the code, the game downloaded really easily.

It is an instant hit. It has 6 mini games to play including the chance to be artistic and decorate bows as well as the chance to gain badges (which I am told means I need to connect it to my computer again so they can get prizes).

The games are really good fun but educational too using the big and small concepts as well as colours and also fine motor skills it is perfect for my girls ages (3 and 4). I love the graffics especially when the little film clips play. It really is like watching the cartoon on the TV.

This game has a definite thumbs up from me and I am now looking at buying even more games from the connect store as there are some fabulous learning ones on their for only a few pounds each and it might mean that I get to keep my Nexus to myself.
