Leapfrog Maths Adventure to the Moon–A Review and the chance to win one of 3 copies.

Maths Adventure DVD 3DI wouldn’t recommend that you teach a child mathematical concepts via a DVD, however for all of us the electronic babysitter is at times a necessary evil .  If the kids are going to watch DVDs without me I’d like to know that it’s well made and entertaining and if it’s educational too that’s an added bonus.  Our kids watch DVDs in the car on long journeys, I think my husband may throw the Mr Men out of the window if he hears the music one more time, so a new addition to the collection is always welcome.

My 2 year old and 7 year old watched the DVD together, I didn’t expect the 7 year old to enjoy a DVD about counting but actually it has lots of levels and would appeal to a mixture of ages.  She managed to watch it till the end and  I even caught her joining in with the counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.  The story revolves around  Tad and Lily ,a girl and a boy frog who are finding maths difficult and go on a journey to space where they see how maths can be applied in all kinds of contexts.MathsAdv1  It explores simple concepts like counting to 10, but also counting backwards, counting in 2’s 5’s and 10’s , following repeated patterns, sorting by shape, size and colour and simple addition. Many of these are introduced using a catchy song helping to engage the younger children.  My 2 year old has asked to watch it again after watching a few times so I think it will be popular with her.  I would say it is ideally suited to children aged between 2 and 6. It lasts around 40 minutes and there are additional features including 5 songs and a sorting game.

It is a good quality, entertaining DVD that I think children would enjoy for a number of years before growing out of it.  Don’t use it as a quick fix to teach your child maths, but if you want to use it to back up playful, active mathematical learning then I think it is a good choice.

This never before seen on television title is released on May 9th with an RRP. of £9.99. 

I have 3 copies of this DVD to give away.  To be in with a chance simply subscribe to my blog or post a comment on any of my posts before 9th May .  Winners will be chosen at random on that date.

    great review,

    Think my kids will actually enjoy this and at least it’s educational so if they are going to watch t.v. then at least they wouldn’t be watching the dreaded Night garden etc.

    thanks and i hope i’m one of the lucky winners.
