Leapfrog LeapTV – Game Console that is Educational and Fun!

I received a Leapfrog game system and games to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% mine and were not influenced in any way.

Having a video console that is educational is probably every mom’s dream! When I read about Leapfrog’s LeapTV I was in disbelief – a gaming system that is educational? Is that possible? Knowing that Leapfrog has amazing educational products that my kids have grown up using, I trusted that the LeapTV would be a “must have”. I was totally right and when I got the opportunity to host a party, all the moms were amazed.

About LeapTV

LeapTV from LeapFrog gets kids into the action while teaching core skills across a variety of subjects including: 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. Audio instruction makes it simple for even the youngest kids to play solo or with a friend!


The gaming system not only provided our kids with educational games but it keeps them active. The included camera captures they wacky moves, jumps, and dancing. They’ll be learning core skills such as reading, mathematics, science, and problem solving. Games adapt to each child’s level – starting with their age, and then automatically adjusting the learning for just the right challenge.


The LeapTV active video gaming was designed for children ages three to eight years old, changing the way children learn by combining activity and movement with best-in-class educational curriculum. The design is simple with a user-friendly interface, a motion sensing camera that puts a child directly in the game, a transforming controller that is made for classic gameplay and pointer control gameplay, plus audio prompts throughout the experience to help children navigate games and provide curricular tutorials. The kids had a blast seeing themselves on the TV. I loved hearing all the laughs and giggles. Lots of friendly competition and wonderful memories were created.


There are three unique ways to play:

  • Body motion
  • Pointer play
  • Classic control

Right now there are 8 different game cartridges available some with kids favorite characters like, Sofia the First and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Overall the kids had so much fun and this mama is happy that my kid is learning something useful!
