The LeapTV from LeapFrog is going to be one of the hot toys this holiday season, and I can say from 1st hand experience I totally understand why. It’s the perfect mix of game, education and active fun for kids age 3-8.
We even got to host a #LeapTv party and share the game with our friends. We decided to have an early morning play-date and get the kids ready to go with bagels, juice and snacks. The kids were so excited to play and Eleanor couldn’t wait to show them how it all works.
We started with the Sports game. This game has 9 different sports to play, and the interaction of player and system is so unique. We played the karate section for 3 reasons, 1) The kids can see themselves on the TV, 2) It works on eye-hand coordination and thinking fast. 3) It is Eleanor’s favorite.
Since we had some practice prior to our party Eleanor knew the drill, but when we 1st started out we needed to help her. This game will give you a shape and you have to break the board. So you look at the shapes coming out and hit them with your arm, no controller, it’s super interactive and really makes you work on eye-hand coordination.
What I also love is the game reads your child. If they are hitting the boards quickly it will go a little quicker, but if they aren’t so fast it works at your pace. The game always gives positive encouragement and the right amount of time to play while not feeling too long.
We all had a great time playing and I say “all” because the parents got into it as well. I personally love playing the Dance and Learn game, and so does Camden.
Our LeapTV party was a ton of fun hanging and playing with friends, but I know the real fun will come this winter when we’re stuck inside. The kids can play the games and stay active both mentally and physically.
