Leaps And Bounds

January 26th, 2009 - By Stephanie Precourt

I’ve always been one of those Moms a bit afraid of letting my boys play too many video games and never let them have a handheld game device before this Christmas. I decided to test the waters out with the educational LeapFrog products like the Didj and Leapster2 [$70] And I’m so very very pleasantly surprised!

To my boys, it’s a cool video game. But all at the same time it teaches them math and vocabulary skills and problem solving! It’s great for long car trips and also alone time in our very crowded house.

The Didj is recommended for ages 6-10. and I feel like that’s a good age range for the game options available. The Leapster2 is for ages 4-8, but I will say that my 3 year old plays along just fine with it, too!

Win! It’s Bloggy Giveaways time and I’ve got a Leapster 2 to give away here! Just leave a comment if you’d like to win. Twitter about this giveaway and you’ll get an additional entry. Be sure to leave an additional comment letting me know you did!

I’ll choose one winner at random sometime after 11:59 PM this Thursday. Open to US residents only.
