Frosty Festivities: LeapFrog Zippity review and {Giveaway!!!}

Another great toy by LeapFrog! Zippity is a video game for kiddos age 3-5 years. My favorite thing about it is that the kids have to stand up, jump, and move around. No lazy sitting on behinds. It's also a great teaching tool. The kids are tricked into learning while they play! Children can learn their colors, numbers, etc. while playing games.
Click Here to see videos of the Zippity in action!My friend's little 5-year-old really enjoyed playing the Zippity. She ran over to her mom and said, "This is fun!" She loved hopping on the mat to make the frog hop, too. It was easy for her to learn to use the system by moving the "bopper" (basically a giant joystick) and stepping on spots on the mat. One of the games, serving food to customers and adding it up, was a little difficult for her. With more practice, she may improve her math skills. Also, that tells me that older children might enjoy the game, too.
Zippity comes with 4 built-in groups of games, plus you can purchase extra games to play. The built-in groups include Whinny the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Little Einsteins, & Handy Manny, with 4 games each. Between the built-ins and the add-ons, there is plenty to keep kids happy!
I also received a Disney's Princess and the Frog game to play with the system. This is the game that has the hopping frog my friend's little girl loved. The animation is cute and it looks like that will be a great movie!
One improvement I would make is to increase to processing power because it does pause to load often. However, a faster processor would mean higher cost, so it's great because this system is a great price. It can also use up to 6 C batteries, or 3 if you have an AC adapter (which I have already) to use with it. It is great because there are less cords for kids to hurt themselves on. The mat is wireless and communicates with a console that attaches to the TV.With all the cute, educational, & interactive fun; I really think Zippity makes a great gift for little ones!

  161. 3rd entry: I like the Learn and Groove Musical Table because its batteries do not drain easily and teaches numbers, colors, and words in a very visual and stimulating way.
