I *heart* Leapfrog. Their products are educational, fun, smart and appeal to kids and parents alike. Leapfrog recently released two new DVDs to their growing Learning DVD collection – Numbers Ahoy and The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park – which arrived just in time for sickness to hit our household and were the perfect solution to our home-from-school days.
Numbers Ahoy, geared for ages 3-6yrs, follows Tad, Lily and their firefly friend Edison on an underwater adventure to learn about number recognition, counting, estimating, grouping numbers and other math concepts. The trio works together to take on all kind of deep sea foes (even Pirate Pythagoras!) while they learn about numbers. The 35-minute video also includes a number of bonus features like sing-a-long songs and clips on short vowel sounds. My kids had a blast watching this one and the underwater pirate theme was a hit with my boys.
The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park is aimed at kids 2-5 years old and introduces them to alphabet including upper and lower case letters as Tad, Lily and their dog Scout visit Alistair Alphabelly’s Amazing Amusement Park. The friends have to use the alphabet in order to save their friend Edison who has gotten stuck on a ferris wheel. The 39-minute movie also includes Alistair Alphabelly, the rhyme master, who helps kids learn more about letters through rhyming. Bonus features again include sing-a-longs and a short on short vowels.
Whether you’re battling one of the many bugs going around or trying to make it through one more snow day, Numbers Ahoy and The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park will keep your kids entertained – and learning!
Each movie is $14.98 and can be purchased at Leapfrog.com and various other retailers.
