Lionsgate Home Entertainment and top educational toy maker LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. have teamed up once again to release LeapFrog: The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park and LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy this January.
Parents can expect a great combination of education and fun for kids with these new LeapFrog DVDs. I like that they include beneficial bonus features that reinforce the kids’ learning such as a parental curriculum, sing-along songs and more. The releases also introduce Scout, Tad and Lily’s pet dog who communicates only through barking, yipping and using body signals. This animated character is wacky and mischievous and provides a chock-full of entertainment throughout each of the episodes.
I can be picky with what my kids watch on tv but I know I can never go wrong with LeapFrog DVDs. We owned a few of the earlier LeapFrog DVD titles and my kids have really enjoyed them. I love that LeapFrog really emphasizes on strong educational content in each of their episodes, the characters are all wholesome and lively and the songs are generally fun and catchy. Jaden, my three year old, is now really into the alphabets and really enjoys watching the LeapFrog: The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park. On the other hand, my five year old Gabriel thoroughly enjoyed LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy. Expect a lot of giggles, dance and sing alongs from your kids with these fun to watch, excellent educational DVDs from LeapFrog!
LeapFrog: The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park
LeapFrog The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park (Ages 3-6): When their firefly friend, Edison, takes Tad, Lily and Scout to the place of his childhood dreams, the gang is shocked to discover that Alistair Alphabelly’s Amazing Amusement Park is… closed! To make matters worse, Edison has gotten himself stuck atop the Fantastical Ferris Wheel. The only way to save him is to turn on the rides in the park with the magic of the alphabet. Now the children must learn all of the letters, big and small, to save their friend, save the day and perhaps even meet the rhyme master himself, Alistair Alphabelly!
LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy
LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy (Ages 3-6): Tad and Lily need a little number sense to help them get through a complicated game. So their magical firefly friend, Edison, takes them on a fantastical journey under the sea! When a pirate mistakenly captures their cute puppy pal Scout, they must use their new understanding of counting, grouping and estimating to rescue him. Join them as they navigate the deep and face foes such as sharks, crab henchmen—even Pirate Pythagoras himself—and begin to see numbers in a whole new way!
Both LeapFrog: The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park and LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy are now available at Amazon and at leading book retailers for the suggested retail price of $14.98 each.
One of you, lucky Hip Mama’s Place reader, will win both LeapFrog DVD titles: The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park and Numbers Ahoy, courtesy of LeapFrog and Lionsgate Home Entertainment!
