Leapster Software: Kindergartenby Audrey DeZwirek
This kindergarten-focused cartridge is a great way to teach children the fundamentals of reading and mathematics.
What makes the cartridge great is that kids will have no idea they are learning while they engage in stimulating, challenging and, above all, fun games along with Leap, Lily and Tad (LeapFrog branded characters).
Each game allows users to select from 3 levels of difficulty, which encourages kids to master the lower level games in order to reach the Super-Challenging Level 3!
Edison, a wonderful friend, is always ready to give the users a helping hand if they're stuck. By completing each of the games, the user can collect tickets allowing them to buy monster parts from Mirabelle the Monkey (which is pretty exciting if you're a kindergartener!)
The cartridge has 6 games, each aimed at different areas of education. The Funhouse requires the user to move characters around various obstacles, collecting letters in order to build three-letter words. In Candy Combo, the child needs to help Moe the Hippo make candy by completing various candy patterns, sequences or words. In the Monster Theater a child can create a fun-loving monster who can dance and move with the monster parts they have purchased from Mirabelle.
There's more than enough fun on this one cartridge to last a good long while!
