We received a #LeapTV Gaming Console to share with our friends and check out the new kid-friendly system. All thoughts and opinions are my own, and be sure to watch the video review – it’s comprehensive, quick and fun!
My husband has always loved video games. He loves them so much, I’m pretty sure it’s genetic. While I’m yearning for the days of side-scrolling Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt, Red’s starting to show interest in all the colors, graphics and dancing involved in our newest games (like Just Dance). Video Games, up until this point, have been an adult-only activity because of the skill required to use the controllers and the adult level of shoot-em-up games that Chase likes to play. So what’s a three year old to do? Enter the LeapTV Gaming System from LeapFrog. This high tech, camera based gaming system was created just for kids ages 3-8, and provides them with an outlet for energy while they learn and play games.
Red and I threw a little get together with some of our friends to play with the LeapTV together and really explore everything it had to offer. I quickly discovered that Red’s favorite game is Dino Dance on the Dance & Learn LeapTV cartridge, which caters to the youngest of video game players, while the older guests enjoyed the rhyming games and sports like karate, snowboarding and baseball with mathematics. Currently (as of 11/2014) there are 9 cartridge games to play, and over 100+ educator approved games that you can reach with the wi-fi compatible system by year’s end. That’s a lot to try out and the perfect snowy day activity. (I heard we’re supposed to have a wicked winter!)
The LeapTV comes with the console, a camera, games, HDMI cord, power cable and transforming controller. Be sure to click on the video below for an interactive, short review of the LeapTV from LeapFrog. I’m sure the little video game players in your house will love it just as much as Red does!
