I was given a free gaming system to host the LeapFrog MommyParty with my children. All thoughts an opinions expressed in my article are my own.
I think I have found the hottest new toy for this holiday for kids, LeapTV. This new video game by Leap Frog ties in learning with movement and tons of fun. This is something every parent is looking for in a video game for children.
LeapTV has Easy Setup
I was amazed at how easy the LeapTV system was to set up. After everything was plugged in, I turned the LeapTV on and followed the instructions on the screen. Part of the instructions are to enter your children’s names and ages on the computer to set up LeapTV. I entered all three of mine, so they could all have their own games to play. The instructions were easy and simple to follow and set up was a breeze. Heck, if I can do it anyone can.
Why I Love LeapTV
The controller is made for little hands. It is small and all the buttons are close together so they can reach them, unlike other video game controllers. Plus the controller can trasform from using it as a joystick to using it as a pointer on the TV. We all thought this was so cool. This allows for different types of skill games. There is even a camera included, so the person child has to move to hit targets on the screen.
We invited a few friends over to see how fun LeapTV is to play. All the kids had a blast jumping around and playing. We had a friend visit who really doesn’t like to play video games because he thinks they are too hard for him. He sat and watched for a little while then he wanted to try. He caught on really quick and he loved it! His mom was asking a lot of questions too. It was great to see all the kids having a great time and moving around playing games.
I love how LeapTV Sports gets them all up and moving. Most of the games with the Sport game can be played with up to four players and is very interactive with the camera. So everyone can have fun playing. LeapTV will be great to get them moving this winter when we are stuck indoors. I know we will be having more indoor play dates to play LeapTV.
Since I was able to set up each child individually, I could see the differences as they played the games. The older kids had a little more challenging tasks than the younger one. A game is included with LeapTV and we were able to sample Sports and Dance. My older two are in their teens and they spent several hours playing the games as well. Everyone enjoyed playing the Pet Play World game and being able to design their own pet and the pet’s house. The more you play the more you level up.
