Dear Diary, This year, my daughter took a big leap forward. She started preschool. No longer can we call her the baby. Instead, she insists we address her as big kid. She wants to pick out her school clothes, decide what we’re having for dinner and determine what activities we’ll take part in. Although she’s growing up, she’s still too little to do some things, like play video games–something her cousins are addicted to. XBox isn’t exactly geared to the three-year-old crowd, so our baby of the family often feels left out at get togethers. Caitlynn doesn’t understand why she can’t play, and usually interrupts their game by jumping in front of the TV. If they don’t press pause, she typically tears up. So, when I found out that there was a video gaming system developed just for her, we had to try it out. To make it extra special, we decided to throw a surprise party. While my nephews played a basketball game, we sent Caitlynn upstairs with my sister, decorated the family room and set up the LeapTV. Watch the video to see how even a middle schooler leaped into action! Now, instead of Caitlynn asking to play with her cousins, they are calling her to see when they can play LeapTV again. And the best part–they don’t even realize they are learning while playing! LeapTV games feature reading, mathematics, science and problem solving. Designed for kids ages 3-8, the system uses a motion-sensing camera and controller that fits small hands, so Caitlynn doesn’t need help holding the handset. And audio instruction makes it simple to use. Games adapt to each child’s level-starting with the most basic skills and then automatically adjusting the learning for the perfect challenge. Hey DFTM Fam–Have you checked out the LeapTV gaming system? Is this on your Christmas wish list? One Response BrandiJeter November 25, 2014 A surprise party is so fun!
