Christmas Gift Ideas With Leap Frog.

Last Christmas we bought the twins Leap Pads and Ru a read with me scout.
They were there favourite presents and they really enjoyed playing with them.
There still going strong today.

So when Leap Frog got in touch and asked if I wanted to review a few things for a Christmas gift guide I was more than happy to say yes!

They really spoilt the boys by sending them
The Leap TV set up,

The twins have been asking for watches for what seems like forever and we've never really found any that we though would be right for them.
So when reading about the Leap Bands I was impressed and questioned myself to why I hadn't thought about looking at them before.

The twins loved them as soon as they saw them in the boxes.
They were desperate for me to get them out and put them onto their wrists.

Leap Bands
suitable for ages 4 -7.

Audio instructions,
Water resistant,
Rechargeable battery,
Parent controls - set quite times and school mode.

The only activity tracker made for kids that encourages active play and healthy habits with 50 fun challenges!

LeapBand comes preloaded with ten imaginative and active play challenges and four cool-down challenges. Parents can add up to 36 more challenges in LeapFrog Connect, so kids will hear fun activity prompts such as "March like an elephant" or "Wiggle like a bug". LeapBand features parental controls to further personalise the experience, including School and Quiet modes.

You can buy the Leap Band from amazon for £13.50, which is a perfect price for a stocking filler/tree present!

The boys love giving all the activities ago, and I can often find them jumping around the living room like a frog in a desperate bid to earn more jewels.

They are easy to charge and to set up, just connect them to a computer and register them over on Leap Frogs Connect page

You can also download an app to your smart phone - Petathlon Games.
Where you can also connect your leadband and it will keep a track of your rewards and you can also play events such as wind sailing, javelin throw, archery and so on.

Count and Crawl Kitty
suitable for ages 9 - 24 months.

Make counting the cat's meow!
Press keys to explore numbers 1-20 and create music.
Bat Kitty's ball of wool or push along for more mew-sical fun.

The kitty is nice and colourful and will catch the eye of any baby.
Ru is older than the recommended age, but he has loved playing with it and I often hear him repeating the numbers and songs that the toy says.
It's helping him with his speech and he loves playing with it.

You can buy count and crawl kitty from Amazon for £10.90.

Leap TV
suitable for ages 3 - 8

The LeapTV system puts learning into motion in three ways:
body capture motion, pointer play and classic controller action.

In the box you get one multi purpose controller, console, console stand, camera stand, motion sensing  camera, HDMI cable, AC power adapter.
You receive a free bonus customisable Pet Play World game with LeapTV registration.

I bought the boys an extra controller and a Spider-Man game off amazon.
The spare controller was £15.50 and the game was £9.99

The twins get envious of Noah playing on his PlayStation so when they saw that they had they're very own console they jumped for joy.

It's relatively easy and quick to set up, so the boys didn't have to wait too long to get going.
They love that they understand what they're meant to do, as rather than have the game instructions written on the screen, it talks to them and tells them what to do.
They are also learning at the same time as playing!

The boys have each pick a pet and love playing games and decorating its home.
Just like on the LeapPad, so because they have already used that they understand what to do on the Leap TV.
The Spider-Man game has been a big hit, even Noah will come and play and help the boys when they get a little stuck.
I can see Santa bringing some new games to fill their stockings!
The Leap TV is aimed at children aged 3-8yrs but its great fun for all the family!

Learning is fun and the leap TV really shows that!

The leap TV kit is currently on sale for only £31.99 rather than £119.99 on the Leap Frog store
