2014 Christmas Give-Away - LeapTV!

As grandmas - and grandpas, moms and dads, we all know our grandchildren/children enjoy playing video games. When we are able to provide opportunities for them to do this with games which help them learn, it is clearly much better than them just playing games which have no educational value. 

Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to review a number of items from LeapFrog; game systems which are engaging, fun, and educational and more recently the LeapBand system. Today I'm very happy to let you know I will be posting a review on Sunday about their new LeapFrog LeapTV . . . and I am giving one away as well!

What is a LeapFrog LeapTV, you ask? LeapFrog says; "Gaming just got smarter with LeapTV, the educational, active video gaming system built just for kids ages 3-8 years. Kids learn through motion as they jump and dance through innovative, engaging curriculum. With a library of 100+ LeapFrog educator-approved games and videos, kids never run out of fun!"

I am looking forward to it arriving today and my grandsons coming over tomorrow so we can give it a try! I'll be posting my thoughts and opinion of it on Sunday . . . which is why LeapFrog is sending it to me - they want me to give it a try and then write what I think about it. I think it looks very interesting and like it will potentially be an excellent option for children as it not only provides the opportunity for them to play video games, and not only does it do so with the quality educational games we have come to know from LeapFrog, but it is a system which gets children up, moving, and truly involved with learning! 

So, the details for entering this give-away for the LeapFrog LeapTV are . . . If you are over the age of 18, live in the USA, and would like to be in the drawing which will be on November 28, 2014, please comment below to let me know what you think would make a fun active, learning game for children . . . I think something which lets children act like they are climbing, sliding, and working their way though an obstacle course might be interesting!

In addition, you will receive additional entries if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win LeapFrog LeapTV and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away!

    1. My grandsons LOVE treasure hunts . . . could be partly because I hide "treasure" in the house for them to find! :-) Thank you for sharing! :-)

  9. I think that something along the lines of acting out a scavenger hunt requiring them to simulate climbing, running, crawling on the adventure would make a good game. You can find little bits of information along the way that can be turned into a learning fact so there is learning and interacting physically.

  38. I think that a fun game for them would be a treasure hunt. They could dig for clues, climb obstacles, whoosh down a slide all while figuring out the clues. Using their brain and body at the same time!

  39. Oh...I know what my grandson would love would be a game where he was pretending to be a garbage truck driver! he LOVES garbage trucks! Drive the truck...dump the garbage at each stop...OOPs...the can fell in...climb and get it out....Oops...trash spilled...bend and pick it up! He pretends he is a garbage man all the time! :)
