Children love playing with consumer electronic devices. But smartphones and tablets usually lead to a very sedentary lifestyle. However, LeapTV was designed specifically to keep your kids moving while they play, sneaking in some intelligent learning lessons at the same time.
Dozens of educator-approved Leapfrog cartridges and games can be used with the system, so let's power it up and see exactly what you can expect.

- Teaches science, problem solving, mathematics and reading
- Dozens of compatible cartridges, applications and games available
You know your children love electronic games. But you hate seeing them inactive, staring at their video game and cell phone displays. LeapTV provides the answer, made by the same Leapfrog Enterprises company known for creating fun, learning centred games for kids.
Just like traditional video game systems, a console connects to your display. However, with LeapTV and special features, your kids are encouraged to keep moving instead of sitting. There are more than 100+ games, cartridges and downloads which have been approved by educators to boost your child's development in areas like fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination.
The console includes a motion tracking camera, one transforming controller, HDMI cable, 16 GB of built-in memory, AC power adapter and Wi-Fi/ethernet port. The system comes with the Pet Play World game included, allowing children to customise and create their own pets and environments. (Extra transforming controllers are sold separately so your child can play with friends, jumping, dancing and moving.)
There are 3 different ways to play. The intelligent motion tracking camera and console allows your child to control game outcomes through either body motion, classic controller input or by pointing. And as your child progresses through the special learning games, the curriculum and difficulty automatically adjusts.
Another really nice feature is the hint button that keeps children from becoming discouraged if they are having a hard time in a particular game. There are also tutorials and other helpful game lessons included.
The extensive library of award-winning, educator approved leapfrog games and applications ensure that your child is benefiting in important developmental areas. LeapTV makes a smart purchase with a budget friendly price tag if you are shopping for a video gaming system that teaches fun and learning in an active atmosphere.
