Leapster Explorer Game Tangled- Disney Princess Rapunzel teaches spelling!
Rapunzel, fun spelling games
The Bottom Line:
This is a wonderful game for the Leapster Explorer and my daughter has learned a lot. We would highly recommend it!
My 3.5 year old really likes the Disney Princesses and she really enjoys her Leapster Explorer. She initially received her Leapster Explorer for Christmas and this was one of the games I got for her to go with it. This game has seen a lot of playing time in the past few months.
This game is based on the Disney movie Tangled which is the story of Rapunzel. The game focuses on Spelling, Reading, Vocabulary skills, and Creative Expression. Rapunzel and Flynn have many adventures as they uncover words and escape the Tower. This game is full of word scrambles and spelling games to help teach your child.
The best thing about this game is that it dynamically changes with your child. So, as your child answers questions the game will get harder as your child gets the questions correct. So, the game moves along with your child. Also, if you go on Leapfrog Connect you can see how your child is doing with the questions from the game. You can see how many questions they get correct and where there are at in comparison to their age/grade level. I always enjoy seeing where my child measures up.
This game is recommended for children ages 4-7 years old. It is meant for pre-K through 1st grade.
The cost of the game is around $25.
My daughter plays this game all the time and loves playing the word games. Her favorite game is a word game in which you pick the right letters to unscramble a word and it braids Rapunzel's hair. My daughter enjoys figuring out the word and then you can also place flowers in Rapunzel's hair and she thinks that is neat. There is also another game in which they ask you to change one letter in the 3 letter word (For example "Change Nut to Cut") and you have to figure out which letter to change and which letter to change it to.
It is also fun to get badges in this game and my little girl has gotten quite a few. Also, when you earn badges you also earn tokens that you can exchange for bath items or food for your pet, or you can use the tokens for micromods. You can also use them in LeapWorld (which is an online world your child can play on). But, in June 2012 LeapWorld will be gone for good. We have downloaded all the micromods for this game of which there weren't that many. There were a couple background changes and a couple adds to the game.
The best part of this game though is that you as the parent can give your child a spelling list so that when they play the game they are working on the words you want them to work on. I have found that this works very well for my daughter and that everytime I have given her a new list she is able to READ the words by the time she is done.
This is a fun game for a child to play, especially if they are interested in Disney Princesses.
