Oliver is one lucky 4 year old boy who thanks to this blog, receives some brilliantly entertaining and educational toys to review. He gets more excited than I do when the postman knocks!
And it was no different when this item arrived! The kind LeapFrog team always like to send us items to review before or just as they go on sale and Oliver literally jumped with glee when the LeapTV™ from LeapFrog® arrived!
An educational video gaming system perfect for 3- 8 year olds, it offers three incredible ways to play and learn for little people: Body Motion, Pointer Play and Classic Control and they’d included a Bubble Guppies game with ours too where Oliver could dig up fossils and classify them and explore the people and places of Bubble City.
He played for an hour before dinner and I was impressed with his motor and memory skills and utter concentration throughout!
The system enables kids to use the nifty camera to capture movement or dance, jump, hop, dive or whatever they fancy doing, without any need for a controller.
So in more detail:
Pointer Play turns the controller into a simple pointer, enabling more motion-based gameplay.
By swivelling one end of the controller and using point-based gestures you can play as your favourite characters.
Classic Control is designed for fast-paced gaming. In this mode, children can tilt or shake the controller to race in games such as LeapFrog® Kart Racing for example.
What is so wonderful with LeapTV™ is that you have access to LeapFrog’s complete library of over 70+ educator-approved games and videos including those focused on reading, maths, science, art and more. How cool is that?!
This product includes LeapFrog® LeapTV™ 16GB console with built-in Wi-Fi, motion-sensing camera and mount, transforming controller with wrist strap and a HDMI cable.
Also includes bonus game (internet required).
Requires 2x AA batteries.
