When it comes to playing video console games, as parents we want our kids to also be learning along the way. We have fallen in love with our LeapFrog LeapTV and you can see our full review of the gaming console, just click the link above. While Spiderman was great at teaching phonics, we have the opportunity this week to test out the newest additions to the LeapTV game collection including the famous PAW Patrol, Dance & Learn, and Sports. All these are games that are fun for kids and educational at the same time.
LeapFrog seem to always get it right when it comes to applying age groups to their games. I have the added advantage of testing them out on my littlest as well as my biggest child, who is now in school. I can definitely see the difference in the understanding of how to play the games and following instructions. But it’s also nice that their are numerous games they love to play together too.

EDUCATING KIDS THROUGH GAMES:
Each LeapFrog LeapTV games has a colored label on the front of the game box to share with you what subject your child will be learning with that particular game and the various skills that they will be working with too. You can easily see about just in three games, my kids are learning math, science and reading and the numerous skills listed all being used while playing these educational games.
You don’t have to feel guilty letting them play games a little longer than normal. Sometimes my biggest kid comes home with a subject or assignment from school that matches one of his games and when he is tired of sitting at the dining table, working on his homework, we use his LeapTV to help further that subject. He doesn’t feel like it’s homework when he is playing his LeapTV. I think its a win-win for both parents and children.
*As part of the LeapFrog Blogger Panel we have been sent these games to test out on both my children for their age group. Linking up with #Tried&Tested
