Leap Frog's New Leap TV has Kids Leaping Off of Their Couches

LeapFrog's newest offering, Leap TV has kids moving!

LeapFrog has announced it's latest gaming console, Leap TV.

The game is geared toward 3-8 year olds and features a motion sensor to promote movement.  It is currently compatible with 100 leap frog games, including skills such as reading, math, science, creativity, and more.  John Barbour, the CEO of LeapFrog thinks this is the perfect game console for young children. "Most educational games today are either so educational that kids don't find them fun or so focused on fun that they offer only the slightest educational value." 


There are three ways that children can interact with Leap TV.  They can use their bodies, use the controller, or the wand that the controller converts to.  There is a band included with the system to be used with the wand. 

In a gaming world where violent games are predominant, Leap Frog's new system is the exception.

The Leap TV gaming system is currently offered at $149.99 with new game cartridges priced at $30.00.

    First off, Meropi obviously does not have children. My 3 year old likes the Wii, however not many of the games are educational. I like the idea, and i hope it's worth it.
