We had a long weekend at Granny and Poppy’s house. Two full days of time well spent with family always serve as a reminder of what is truly important. With plenty of little ones frolicking around, we certainly kept the Grandparents on their toes. Kiddie-spazz-attack hour never ceases to emerge during our big family gatherings. I often find myself worrying that little co-conspirators will ride a double-stuffed coaster car into a wall propelling something lovely or fragile into ultimate destruction.
Our LeapFrog viewing party arrived at a perfect hour, and little ones were thrilled to stay up late. Whoo Hoo! I think we all appreciated a bit of evening calm as the kids enjoyed watching LeapFrog Letter Factory Adventures, The Letter Machine Rescue Team DVD.
Through adorable animated characters and catchy songs, the Letter Machine Rescue Team takes viewers on a problem-solving quest to make the Letter Factory ready for its grand opening.
The fun characters: Leap, Tad, Lilly and friends, utilize science, math, creativity and problem solving to fix problems that they face along the ways. As they become “junior engineers” they explore, design, build, test and improve several Letter Factory issues in captivating ways. The kids enjoyed the fun demonstration of adjectives and consonant blends as animated letters work together as a team to make up words. The entire kiddie-clan was hooked for the 35 minute running time – and the educational rich content helps me do away with the “mommy guilt” I seem to associate with TV. Although this DVD is recommended for ages 4-7 – I found it helpful for the younger set as well – as it reinforces colors, letter recognition and comparisons.
The Letter Machine Rescue Team is now available at LeapFrog.com and amazon.com.
