NEWS: Leapfrog TV game console set to get kids moving

Leap what you sow

Leapfrog, the children's educational gadget maker most famous for its kid-friendly tablets, are branching out into the world of living room entertainment. The Leapfrog TV Active Video Gaming System, which will be available to order from September, aims to get kids moving about while they play and learn with Nintendo Wii-like motion controls.


The controller for the system, which includes a camera and WiFi to download apps and games, has been designed to be as easy as possible for a child to hold and operate, allowing three different play modes:


·     Body Motion: Children become the star of their own game. The motion-sensing camera captures a child’s moves and instantly puts them into the game as they explore activities like dance and martial arts. Children can run, hop and tip-toe or wave their arms to defend goals, karate-chop fast-moving blocks, scuba dive and more.

·     Pointer Play: Pointer play takes pretend play to new levels of engagement. The controller transforms into a pointer with a simple twist and lets kids snap jungle vines, slice through coconuts, swing from building to building and more. 

·         Classic Control: Classic control puts fun at a child’s fingertips. They can press the A and B buttons for fast-paced gaming, or tilt and shake the controller to navigate through an enchanted garden or race in a classic kart-racing game.


We think it looks great and can't wait to give it go closer to the release date. It will retail for £119.99.
