LeapFrog Academy®: the best learning apps for kids ~ a TOS review

 

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC Regulations.
Another Friday is upon us friends! I hope you have had a great week. Today I want to share with you a new product from LeapFrog®. I am sure you may already be familiar with the name LeapFrog®, the company that’s been paving the way in childhood learning since the ‘90’s, but did you know they now have the new interactive app called LeapFrog Academy®?
I am always looking for educational games for my children, so I was thrilled to receive a 1-year subscription to LeapFrog Academy® to use with my son, Micah. LeapFrog Academy® is an online, interactive learning app geared for children aged 3-6 years. The program covers activities for children in Preschool, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade levels. A great feature of this program is that you may have up to five child profiles under one subscription.
LeapFrog Academy® has over 2,000 games, activities, and eBooks in math, reading, science, problem-solving, and more. It truly is a go-to for your youngest learners. Since it is an app you can take the learning on-the-go, my favorite! Best of all, you as the parent don’t have to worry about any ads, or in-game purchases!




Setting up Micah’s account was easy. I simply created a profile for him and he helped me pick out his custom avatar.
Micah is 6 and finishing 1st grade. As he follows his in-game learning map he was able to play different games and learning activities within:

Learning Adventure ~ this area features guided learning to teach and review activities including counting, reading, puzzles, videos, games, and eBooks. Achievement certificates are available as they progress through the levels.

My World ~ this area allows for customization of the avatar. Your child can choose from different outfits, accessories, and pets.

Core Subjects and More ~ includes an extensive library of early fundamental learning activities. Through game play your student will learn letter recognition, phonics, shapes, colors, and numbers.

There’s also a password-protected parent dashboard allows you to keep up with the child’s profile. Changes to grade placement can be made here.


Micah found it easiest to play on the LeapFrog Academy® on our school iPad. He played at least 3 days a week, for about 20 minutes, sometimes longer. His favorite activities include playing the Ninja Banzai Beans Attack and the matching games. Because LeapFrog Academy® makes learning fun he never complained when it was time to play.


Overall, this is an excellent learning app that I have no problem letting Micah spend time playing on! The format of being an app works great for our on-the-go schedule. While we are not traveling as much for gymnastics because of the pandemic, this app is my go to when we do find ourselves on a road trip. Be sure to check out the extended 2-month free trial that LeapFrog Academy is offering and try it out before you commit to either a 6-month {$24.99}or 12-month {$39.99}subscription.
