The Disney Frozen game for LeapPad tablets is an original learning game featuring beloved characters from the hit film. Children, ...ages 4 to 7, can warm up reading skills as they help Anna, Elsa and Olaf create and deliver beautiful ice sculptures for various towns in the kingdom. The Disney Frozen learning game works with all LeapPad2, tablets and above. Children begin by choosing an ice sculpture to create. If they choose a swan, for example, they unleash Elsa's ice powers to write the letter 'S' in the sky, and then transform it into a sparkling swan sculpture. This gives them practice with handwriting and reinforces phonics skills. Children can then adorn their sculpture with flowers by joining Olaf in a spelling mini-game. Children are asked to build smaller words such as "all" and "now" from the letters in a bigger story-based word, such as "snowball." Flowers grow to reward each word they find. Once they've gathered enough flowers, children can help Olaf arrange the words on each bouquet into sentences, then use the bouquets to decorate their ice sculpture. Read More

After helping Barbie find hidden letters and objects throughout Malibu, players are asked to sort letters and words into word families that share common spelling patterns. This helps children read and spell new words they encounter. (For example, if children can read or spell ?wig,? they can use analogy to read or spell ?big? and ?fig. ?) Players build phonological awareness by identifying items that share the same beginning, middle, or ending sounds. They also use word recognition and listening skills to choose fabulous accessories for Barbie, and get practice with spelling as they silkscreen adorable t-shirts in the Pet Paws Boutique. To successfully find the culprits, children must assimilate all the clues they?ve discovered using free association. For example, players help Barbie?s friends remember potential clues to the mysteries by choosing words related to characters? thoughts and dragging them to Barbie?s journal. Then, they put together puzzle pieces to show the crime scene and display the culprits. Puzzles are replayable and become more complex as players progress through the story.</p></div> <h5><div id="header2">Personalized for Every Child</div></h5> <div id="text2" class="a-spacing-small"><p>In Barbie Malibu Mysteries, children can practice their own spelling lists for school while having fun with Barbie.

If parents opt to let the game select the words, Barbie Malibu Mysteries will adjust the level automatically based the child?s age and performance, keeping kids challenged at just the right level. Players are asked to spell one word to fill the machine with ink, and then spell another word to fill it with glitter. The machine will screen more words onto pet t-shirts for players to spell, too, offering them practice with the words they need to learn. Barbie Malibu Mysteries is also packed with ways for children to express their personal style. Players get to dress Barbie in clothes, shoes, and accessories they find, and they can decorate photos they take on their LeapPad or LeapsterGS systems with Barbie masks and stickers, then save and share them.*</p></div> <h5><div id="header3">Fun with Their Favorite Characters</div></h5> <div id="text3" class="a-spacing-small"><p>In Barbie Malibu Mysteries, building reading skills is part of the excitement as children help Barbie crack three cases and find missing shoes, shiny sparkly items, and cupcakes.

In one game, players are asked to identify items that rhyme or share the same beginning, middle, or ending sounds. These key phonological awareness skills help children understand that words are made of sounds and boost their ability to predict how to read and spell new words they encounter. Players are also prompted to find hidden letters and objects, and then sort letters and words into word families based on shared word endings. When children recognize how some words share common spelling patterns, they can use words with similar spellings to help them figure out new words they come across. Another game helps build listening and reading vocabulary and word recognition skills as players identify words to dress Barbie in a full range of mix-and-match outfits. In the Pet Paws Boutique, players get to silkscreen t-shirts as they practice spelling words from customized lists that can match the words they are learning in school. Alternatively, players can practice words with spelling patterns that get increasingly more sophisticated as they successfully move through the levels.</p></div> </div> <div class="third-col last"> <div class="leftImage" style="width: 300px;"> <div id="image2"><img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41mIwjO06CL.jpg" alt="Compatible with all LeapPad Kids?
