We were lucky enough to be one of the first to get our hands on the #LeapTV by LeapFrog. The boys were very eager to play so before our LeapTV party, we gave this all-new gaming system a test run. LeapTV includes one pre-installed game: Pet Play World. The game reminded us of the boys LeapBands with similar characters and active fun. Get an inside look at the game with this video.
As you can see from those smiling faces, the boys are having a blast playing LeapTV!
Our LeapTV kit also included 2 additional games: LeapFrog Sports and LeapFrog Dance & Learn. By the end of 2014 LeapFrog will release over 100 educator-approved games and videos! LeapFrog Sports includes 9 games, including skateboarding, soccer, baseball, and even karate. Check out L testing out LeapFrog Sports in this video. LeapFrog Dance & Learn includes 9 educational focused dance games. Both games allowed for up to 4 players to enjoy the game while competing against each other in educational challenges.
What’s included: Console & Stand, Motion-Sensing Camera, Transforming Controller, HDMI Cable, Power Adapter, and optional Camera Mount.
- The LeapTV system gets kids into action while teaching core skills across reading, mathematics, science and problem-solving.
- Games adapt to each child’s level-starting with age, then automatically adjusting the learning for the right challenge.
- Designed for kids ages 3-8, the LeapTV video game system changes the way children learn by combining activity and movement with educational curriculum.
- There are 3 unique ways to play: Body Motion, Pointer Play and Classic Control.
We hosted a LeapTV party with friends over the weekend. The kids and moms had a blast learning and playing! We did notice that with so many bodies in the camera’s view it was overly sensitive to picking up multiple people, so we recommend having each child sit and wait their turn to get a true sense of play. Check out this short party video below:
I really appreciate the safety features, like including a wrist strap for kids when using the transforming controller. The game also provides step by step instructions within the game and reminders for kids and parents.
