LeapFrog’s LeapTV Game System

Disclosure: I did receive this gaming system from LeapFrog to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

LeapPad Review

My daughter enjoys LeapFrog’s educational books, flash cards, games, toys, and videos.  She LOVES her LeapPad!  When our LeapTV came in the mail she was very excited to give it a try.

LeapTV Games

Both of the games we received looked really fun but right away she was most interested in the Dance & Learn.  She’s been dancing along with me to one of my Just Dance games….and she’s adorable.  I’ll have to video her sometime!  This was right up her alley.  Dancing and learning combined!  This video focused on building vocabulary, phonics, the alphabet, and compound words.  This is perfect for the stage she’s at too because it featured some review (the alphabet) and some new concepts too (compound words).  I’m always impressed at how well LeapFrog’s products build off each other.

LeapTV Review

What I love most about this system is that it gets little people’s minds and bodies working together in a fun new way!  The needed coordination, quick thinking, and rhythm make this an exciting and interactive system.

My Daughter’s Review:

She LOVES it!  She calls it her iPad.  It has built in apps, games, camera, photo lab to distort pictures, educational music, and so much more!  She loves that it comes with her very own stylus, or pen as she calls it, so that she doesn’t have to search for one of mine.  LeapFrog knows that they’re doing and they attached the stylus.  Well done!

It’s very light weight which is great for my three year old but it’s also built tough which is also perfect for little hands.  I like that it’s personalized for my daughter, it even has her name at the top of the main screen.  The touch screen is quick and easy to use.

I could go on and on naming a ton of little things that I like about it but best of all, I like that it helps her learn!  The apps, games, and videos are all educational – at least the ones I’ve tried.  Right now she’s working on her writing, reinforcing her letter sounds and learning letter blends.  Besides the camera, her favorite thing about her LeapPad is the LeapFrog Letter Factory video.  I’ve watched it with her before and it’s quite a cute video with catchy songs to help her really absorb the material and make learning fun.

LeapPad Review

The battery lasts for 6 hours of continuous use but we don’t use technology for extended periods of time so it lasts and lasts for us.  I’m excited to add yet another fun LeapFrog learning tool to our assortment of homeschooling supplies!

If you have a LeapPad, what’s your child’s favorite game?
