Leapfrog brings Disney’s Brave to life for young explorers

Published on: 6th July 2012

To celebrate the release of Disney Pixar’s Brave, LeapFrog has developed a new range of software.

Designed for the Tag Reading System, the LeapPad tablet and the Leapster Explorer console, children can play and interact with the Princess Merida and other movie characters with the new software.

Created for children aged four to nine years, children can explore and discover science and geography to learn more than 100 life science facts, whilst solving nature puzzles.

As part of the Learn to Read! series for the number one selling reading system, Tag, children aged from four to seven years old can bring the story of Princess Merida to life as they learn advanced vocabulary, word-building and story perspectives. By scanning the Tag reader over the pages of the specially designed book, children can listen to the story read aloud, pick out individual phonics and play interactive games.

Robert Dekker, senior marketing manager EMEA and Australasia, commented: “Our license with Disney enables us to continually develop exciting new software for our connected range of products. The new Brave movie has been highly anticipated by young film fans nationwide, so we’re very excited to be launching new cartridge games, apps and books to coincide with the film launch this year.”
