In our house we have always been suckers for LeapFrog products. My kids love to play (especially on electronics), and I love that they are spending that time learning. I recently got a awesome box of goodies from LeapFrog to review and share with you, and let me tell you – prepare your wallet for some Christmas shopping!!
The first thing my son wanted to rip into was the LeapFrog Word Whammer. The World Whammer is jam on word-building skills in 3 action-packed games that adjust to your child’s skill level.
I really love that the Word Whammer is so easy to use, and it’s something he can grab and go to keep him busy when we are in the car when we have a drive ahead of us (that way I don’t hear the dreaded “MOM ARE WE THERE YET?! or “Can I play on your phone?” LOL)
The Word Whammer has three action-packed games, and fiver different learning levels that adapt to the child as they learn (and progress). The kids get to ‘wham’ as they spin, push, and twist to identity letters and build words. Hit the handle to blast a rocket into letters to spell more than 100 different words!
They can also match upper and lowercase letters by spinning the handle to bump a car into the correct answer – listen for a letter sound and twist the handle fast to spin the teacup into the letter that makes the sound.
It keeps them challenged – and entertained, all while teaching them (and they don’t even realize it) which is amazing in itself!
The other LeapFrog product I am excited about is the LeapPad Platium. LeapFrog has done it again with even more great features on the new LeapPad. It has a 7-inch high-res multi-touch screen and a faster processor. Over 1,000 games all designed and approved by LeapFrog educators. You can take pictures and videos of friends and family, or even yourself with the front and rear facing camera.
You can also connect with friends on the peer-to-peer enabled LeapPad and have yourpets play together – you can also unlock more games with bonus LeapFrog Imagicard digital games and the interactive card (more about that below). I love that the LeapPad Platinum now features wifi with a kid-safe web browser that lets kids explore content they love!
The LeapFrog Imagicard is like extra software for the LeapPad Platinum.
