Published on: 10th June 2016

The interactive system that helps kids get school ready has been revealed.

leadppad480There are two devices, one for pre-school children and one for children in their first years of primary school. Packed with educational and life skills, LeapStart is designed to help build key skills for school success and to challenge kids to get ready for their next step in learning. The system works with a library of replayable activity books that grow with children and get them excited about mathematics, literacy and phonics, science, problem solving, and more.

The LeapStart pre-school system comes with an ergonomically designed stylus for smaller hands. The LeapStart primary school system has a robust, kid-tough design and a stylus that represents a pen, to help them practice finer pen control.

16 activity books across four learning levels have been designed to work with the LeapStart interactive systems (each sold separately) and grow with each child. There are four books at each learning level and together they teach 50+ key skills; from the alphabet and counting to space science, basic coding and educational problem solving.

“Today’s parents realise that learning is more than just the alphabet and 123s – it is also about problem solving and critical thinking. That’s why LeapFrog’s focus is on 21st century learning, a framework that includes the foundational skills kids have always and will always need, such as the ability to adapt to changing technology, collaboration skills and perseverance,” said Jody Sherman LeVos, PhD and director of learning at LeapFrog. “Through fun-filled activities and engaging adventures that progress one step at a time, the LeapStart interactive activity book system brings learning to life to provide children with the tools they’ll need to thrive in tomorrow’s world.”

The product is set to launch in the UK on 17th July.
