I was extremely excited when I was asked to review the new LeapFrog Letter Factory Adventures: Counting on Lemonade. Not only have my children always been huge fans of the LeapFrog toys and learning resources but I knew with Declan starting school soon, he would enjoy a visual learning program.
LeapFrog Letter Factory Adventures: Counting Lemonade just become available on DVD on September 9th, 2014 from LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. and Lionsgate Home Entertainment. "LeapFrog’s award-winning product portfolio is designed to help children achieve their potential by delivering best-in-class educational curriculum through age-appropriate technology-based platforms, fun toys and engaging content."
The synopsis says "Tad, Lily, Leap and friends stir up lots of learning fun when they decide to sell lemonade and use their earnings to buy new books for the library. With the help of Cousin Toad, Matilda, Quigley and Burfder, the twins apply their new skills in counting, addition and subtraction to their new venture of making the most delicious lemonade ever!"
This collection includes three new CGI animated episodes and learning songs as well as a parent curriculum. There are also three all-new original learning songs plus bonus sing-a-long videos and curriculum commentary for parents. Both boys not only loved this but Alana (my teenager) actually enjoyed interacting with the boys right along with the episodes.
Recommendation: Now this may seem like an expensive price for a DVD but I will say I think you are paying more for an educational experience than just a DVD. The kiddos loved it! I would love to see more features from LeapFrog!
Giveaway: Lionsgate is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers LeapFrog Letter Factory Adventures: Counting Lemonade DVD of their own!
