This Summer has been brutally hot in Southeast Louisiana. We have tried to take the kids outside to play first thing in the morning before the sun gets too high in the sky, but the temperature has been 90 degrees at 8am! Due to the weather, we have been trying to find as many active indoor games as possible.
Both of my daughters are staying home with Daddy (as he is a teacher and off for the Summer), so learning time as well as active time is very important in our home. So, I was thrilled to find the CP Toys Interactive Hop and Learn game which appears to combine fun and education! About the game:
“More than the classic game of Hopscotch, this electronic version has 5 play modes that teach numbers, colors, shapes or the C major scale with each hop-along turn. The music mode plays 10 different tunes, while a quiz mode adds to the challenging fun.”
The game requires 3 AA batteries which are not included, but that is the only assembly required. My three year old was the first to try it out. She is learning color, number and shape recognition so the learning mode is great for her. Questions such as “Find the brown circle.” or “Jump on number 8!” are easy for her to comprehend. Her face would light up as she heard the applause for getting the answer correct. She also loved the piano mode which rewards activity by playing a musical note. Making your own sings by hopping is fun!
While my six year old was unimpressed with the learning mode, she absolutely loved the quiz mode. The Interactive Hop and Learn asks players to solve a math equation by hopping on the correct number, or quickly find matching pairs of shapes or numbers. She found this game challenging because the questions come at you pretty fast. After a ton of jumping, running and giggling, I knew the game was a hit for both my three and six year old daughters.
