Leapfrog is a company that has the tools that I need to help teach my children while they have fun. They have some of the most innovative, technology-based educational products. They also have several resources available on their website to aid with the learning process including a special Parents Community and Learning Path.
MONDAY, June 7th(my birthday), Leapfrog will unveil their newest product-the Leapster Explorer.
They have issued a "teaser video" so that parents can go crazy trying to figure out everything that this new device will do. I have been allowed to give a few secrets of what I heard that it will do. It will have apps and video downloads and there is talk of a digital camera and video accessories planned for the future!
Since this product is not available yet, Leapfrog sent me the Zippity for Evan.
Bring Playhouse Disney to your house with Zippity, the new high-energy learning system that gets preschoolers dancing, jumping, playing and learning with Disney characters they love! The Zippity system introduces preschool curriculum through full-body play and learning. Using the interactive bopper and mat, children can stomp, swing, bop and march, driving the learning with their arms and legs!
The Zippity system comes with eight built-in games featuring the popular Playhouse Disney characters from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, My Friends Tigger & Pooh, Little Einsteins and Handy Manny. All eight built-in learning activities bring the characters to life on your TV through high-quality animations and feature two levels of play for hours of active learning fun.
The Zippity is meant for Children 3-5 and Evan isn't quite 3 yet. I wasn't sure how quickly he'd catch on, but he mastered it within minutes. We played on the beginner levels so that it would be easier for him to understand how to play. As long as your child knows their colors, they'll be able to play with their favorite characters on the screen.
The only negative thing about the Zippity is that it requires EIGHT C batteries that are not included. He's played it several times and I haven't had to replace the first set of batteries yet, but I can see it becoming expensive eventually. He is always wanting to play it, but I always double check to make sure it is turned off when not in use.
Rainy days can be hard because my wild man wants to be outside running around. The Zippity allows him to jump, dance, and move with Characters that he recognizes from his favorite shows. It allows him to stay active and entertained for long periods of time.
