I’ve been a fan of LeapFrog for many years now. I love how all of their toys promote learning in a fun way. I can’t even begin to count the number of LeapFrog toys my kids have in their rooms right now.
Something I didn’t know is that LeapFrog now has a DVD series. Their most recent production – Let’s Go to School – was the #1 selling children’s non-theatrical title for 2 weeks in August of 2009. (According to Nielsen data for children’s non-theatrical sales weeks ending 8/23/09 and 8/30/09.) And LeapFrog DVDs held 4 of the top 20 spots on the children’s non-theatrical sales ranking for four weeks in August and September 2009. (According to Nielsen data for children’s non-theatrical sales weeks ending 8/23/09 – 9/13/09.) Recently, they released another video – LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon to teach beginning math skills in a fun, out-of-this-world experience.
My Review of LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon
I recently had the opportunity to review the LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon with my kids. I was so excited to find out that LeapFrog now has an educational dvd series, and couldn’t wait to see how the kids would react to it.
This DVD is geared toward preschoolers, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much Lucy (my 3 year old) loved it. Her favorite thing about the dvd is that it stars Lily. Lucy has a Lily doll that she sleeps with every night. Seeing Lily on tv made Lucy’s day. After she got over the initial excitement of watching Lily, it didn’t take her long to start interacting with the movie. She was counting, singing, sorting, and finishing patterns, and she was having a ball while she did it. When the movie was over, she watched it again. And again. And again. She absolutely loved it. Once I finally got her to let me check out the extra features on the dvd, we discovered so much more than just the movie! The sorting game was great for Lucy. She loved helping Tad and Lily sort their crystals into the proper group. There were also some sing-along songs that Lucy listened to over and over and over.
Jace, my 5 year old, liked the dvd also, but not quite as well as Lucy did. I did hear him counting and doing some other things along with the dvd, but I really think that this dvd is best for kids ages 2 – 4 years old.
The LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon is a hit with Lucy, and I’m giving it the 5 Vinez Monkeys Seal of Approval. I’d definitely recommend this new dvd to anyone who wants to teach their child the beginning math skills they need to help them succeed in preschool and beyond. It’s great for homeschooling families as well.
Get your kids on the path to learning today. Start them off right with the new LeapFrog DVD series.
