Special Birthday Month Giveaway on May 18, 2016 - Little Mermaid LeapFrog LeapPad Game

Over the past several years I have been invited by LeapFrog to participate in their blogger review program. Most of their reviewers are moms, so having a grandma review and write for them, apparently is something they like - and so do my grandsons as they very much enjoy the opportunity to review new LeapFrog product!

This past Fall I was invited to participate in their LeapPad Epic release and review (I gave one away this past Christmas!) and so, along with the Epic - which they sent to me for review - they also sent a box of "goodies" . . . today's giveaway is one of the items in this box. 

I'm very happy to be able to make it one of my Birthday month giveaways, because as my grandsons have helped with LeapFrog reviews, I've been able to see first-hand how they have learned many things by playing LeapFrog games. It is not uncommon for my grandsons to know something I do not expect them to know and when I ask them where they learned this thing, they tell me, "on my LeapPad". For example, little Caleb (four years old) has learned many shapes on his LeapPad games - more than even the teachers in his preschool know. On his last parent/teacher review, his teachers told his parents how they were so amazed with the many shapes he knows! Both Josiah and Caleb have had head starts in math and reading skills, because of the games they have played on their LeapPads. I am, "sold" on the value of LeapPad games because I've been able to see how my grandsons have benefited from them.

So, today I'm very happy to let you know about a LeapPad game which will help your grandchildren with their math skills . . . 

LeapFrog Disney The Little Mermaid Learning Game
Works with LeapFrog LeapPad Tablets and LeapsterGS
Ages - 4-7

Favorite Features -
  • Fun way to help little ones learn numbers, addition, subtraction and shapes

LeapFrog says; "Dive into Ariel's adventure, and use mathematics skills to participate in special moments from her enchanting life. Search for human artifacts in exciting underwater treasure hunts, and ballroom dance the night away with Prince Eric! Designed for children ages 4-7 years old, LeapFrog's The Little Mermaid game features fun activities which build mathematics skills and favorite characters from the beloved Disney feature film. Be part of Ariel's world by exploring moments from her life. Plunge into exhilarating underwater treasure hunts, and help Ariel navigate through underwater caverns using addition, subtraction and pattern recognition. Challenge Flounder to a friendly shell-collecting competition by matching and identifying 2D and 3D shapes under the sea. Use the device's motion sensor to help Ariel swim to the surface and visit her human friends. Dodge obstacles on the way up by tilting left and right and comparing numerals and objects. Join Ariel and Prince Eric for a cozy carriage ride around the kingdom. Help them collect gems, flowers and answer questions using number sense along the way. Then step onto the dance floor and use skip counting and number sequencing skills to choreograph Ariel and Prince Eric in an enchanting ballroom dance. Throughout gameplay, players earn gems which can be used to unlock dress-up items for Ariel to wear!"

As I already wrote, I am a fan of LeapFrog games. They are well designed to be fun, with characters children "know" and love while also engaging them in genuine learning. This particular game will help children learn basic math skills, so while they are playing and having fun, they will be learning as well.

I'm so happy for the opportunity to giveaway one LeapFrog Disney The Little Mermaid Learning Game (USA only)! If you are over the age of 18, live in the USA, and would like to be in the drawing for this game cartridge - which will be on May 18, 2016, please comment below to tell me about a Disney movie you would love to see as a LeapFrog game . . . I think Big Hero 6 would be great fun as a game!
