As a LeapFrog Mom Ambassador, I receive products, promotional items and educational material to use and share as I see fit. However, any opinions expressed by me are honest and reflect my actual experience with the LeapFrog LeapTV.
When we shared our love for the LeapFrog Epic I also mentioned that it was our favorite LeapFrog product next to the LeapFrog LeapTV. Well now I’m excited to share with you why the LeapFrog LeapTV is our top LeapFrog product in our home. I shared our love for the LeapTV in 2014 when it was first released. But the cool thing is it is still a favorite even a full year later!
Magic of LeapFrog LeapTV
The LeapFrog LeapTV is basically a gaming system for little kids that features educational games that are perfect for the younger aged child.
So while my older kids love to play on the Xbox and Wii, those systems and games are just a bit too advanced for Miss Jade. She often gets jealous of her brothers that they get to play video games. She wants to play too.
So with the LeapFrog LeapTV I can give her time to play a video game that is the perfect level for her. Plus the games are educational and encourage movement. Two wins in my book! A game that teaches and keeps her active. Who wouldn’t love that?
Over the year we have collected even more learning games including Frozen, DoodleCraft, Blaze and the Monster Machine, and Letter Factory.
Disney’s Frozen is a great math game recommended for ages 4-7. It teaches basic math as children sculpt ice, create jewelry from snowflakes and enjoy the winter festival. Kids learn addition, subtraction, counting, place value, shape recognition and number sequencing.
Doodle Craft is great if you have kids that love Minecraft. This is a fun way to let them think they are enjoying the same idea, but it’s educational! Kids get creative and design an island. They build and paint buildings, use sorting, memory, observation and matching skills to complete quests. This is designed for kids ages 4-7 and one of Miss Jade’s favorite games since she is very artistic minded.
Blaze and the Monster Machine is designed for kids ages 3-5 years. It focuses on Science, technology, engineering and Mathematics. Kids use these skills to address simple problem solving and use simple machines to help Blaze and his friends build a super-duper stunt track. Plus there is a fun aspect of using the controller as a virtual steering wheel to outmaneuver obstacles.
Letter Factory is another favorite of Miss Jade’s. It is designed for kids ages 3-5 and features their favorite LeapFrog Characters Tad and Lily. They take a train from A to Z. Kids play mini-games at every stop to learn the name, shape and sound of every letter. They also learn how to build words and more. As Miss Jade is learning letters in school, this offers a great way to help reinforce what she is learning in school. And it has been helping her with recognition and her reading. And all while she is having fun!
The LeapFrog LeapTV is recommended for kids ages 3-8, but even older kids can still have fun with it while playing with their younger siblings. It is the perfect blend of fun, video games and education that keeps kids entertained.
Plus for the holiday season I have seen the LeapFrog LeapTV package on sale for as low as $59! You can watch your box store retail stores like ToysRUs, Walmart and Target for these sales. You can also get it on Amazon (currently $48 on 12/22/2015)! It is the perfect gaming system for the younger audience and would make the best Christmas gift for them.
You can learn more about the LeapFrog LeapTV System on LeapFrog’s website. Plus you can find other games to go with the system that are perfect for your child’s personal entertainment needs.
As a family with a daughter who gets tired of book learning and wants to play games, I highly recommend the LeapFrog LeapTV as it is a way to further reinforce the subjects she is learning in school. But in a fun environment away from the desk.
