Count on your child having fun while learning about numbers.
Scout and her (Scout's a her, right?) pals are off to the magical realm of Numberland, where anthropomorphic numerals sing, dance, and bounce on trampolines, extolling the virtues of math. To get there, the LeapFroggers mount up in their reliable conveyance, Axle, and head for the hills to get their counting on. All the mathematical tomfoolery culminates in a super fun birthday party, where the theme is -- get ready -- math.
LeapFrog turns its considerable animated educational firepower to numbers and proves to be just as successful as it is with its bread-and-butter: letters. Kids and parents can expect the same quality product, highlighted by punchy, clean animation, cute characters, and loads of music to bolster its teaching.
At 39 minutes, you may not squeeze much more than a trip to the bathroom and a quick load of laundry while your kiddo watches, but at least you know the little snot will be absorbing a hefty amount of learning.
The specs on LeapFrog: Numberland: standard definition 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, 2.0 stereo, a curriculum commentary for parents, and a generous number of sing-alongs.
Not Guilty. Keep counting, young buck. Keep counting.
