WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Leap Frog: Gift of Learning” wants your kids to learn everything about math and phonics. The Numberland stuff confused because I couldn’t tell if the main characters were pets or the citizens of Leap Frogia. I know that seems like a small deal, but it unnerved me. If the pets are learning the basics of human intellectual endeavors, then how long is it until we’re overrun? I worry about these things.
The animation is stodgy at best. But, you’ve got two features that take you through educational fundamentals. It’s simple and addicting to the point that it’ll stick with your kids. That way DTV material can do what building block years of public education are failing to achieve. Try to laugh to hide the tears, parents of America.
The DVD comes with sing-alongs, curriculum commentary, music videos and various fun activities. The A/V Quality is strong enough for kids. But, I wouldn’t past the discerning ones to find some transfer issues. Still, the Dolby tracks works in a basic 2.0 configuration. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents of young kids.
