Introducing LeapTV

LeapFrog have been busy working away behind the scenes and this week they have unveiled their very latest product, LeapTV.

LeapTV is here to provide the perfect first video game experience for kids that lets learn and be active all at the same time.

Here is a little bit of the reason why LeapFrog came up with this innovative idea :

There are three unique ways to play with LeapTV :

“It is shocking that less than one per cent of the tens of thousands of video game titles are rated appropriate for children under the age of six years. We know that young children want to experience new ways to play through technology earlier than ever, but parents quickly discover that there are very few solutions that are developmentally appropriate or educational for young children,” said Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, director of LeapFrog’s Learning Team. “At LeapFrog, we built LeapTV from the ground up to make it the best first video gaming experience for children. From the simple user interface to the innovative controller with a built-in ‘hint’ button and a world-class Learning Library all designed or approved by our Learning Team, LeapTV gets children’s minds and bodies moving while engaging in learning fun.”

The LeapTV system inlcudes console, motion-sensing camera, camera mount, transforming controller with wrist strap, HDMI cable, 16 GB of built in memory and Wi-Fi and you can buy 100s of game cartridges, downloads and videos which teach a range of skills include reading, maths and problem solving.  

There are three unique ways to play with LeapTV :

* Body Motion

* Pointer Play

* Classic Control

The LeapTV has a RRP of £119.99 and will be available to buy online and in stores from October 2014, just in time for Christmas.
