Review: LeapSchool Math

I love LeapFrog!  Another opportunity came my way in the past couple of weeks - to review the LeapSchool Math game.

In this game, 'students' make & sell products to raise money to help fix up problems on the LeapSchool Campus.  They learn about production, marketing & selling.

Kids can make 3 different products: bubble bath, stuffed animals, and video games.  While there are about 5 choices in each of the production step, the process is similar for each of the products.
After the creation of a product, the kids have to advertise for their sale.  The introduction is obviously very elementary as that is the targeted age group, but it is sufficient info for that age children.  Concept: hang posters where the most people will see them and you will sell all of what you need.
Once the sale is going, kids need to give the correct product to each customer and make change when needed.
The only negative that I can see is that the interest level tends to fall off with the few choices in products to create.  Otherwise this little game teaches math to a very young demographic, such a great thing!

Wishing all a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving, tomorrow!
