LeapFrog MyRobotFriend iOS app

I am a HUGE Leap Frog fan! They produce outstanding educational toys that my kids love! When Goofy was younger he could not figure our what the letters said no matter how hard I tried. Then I discovered Leap Frog Letter Factory and after seeing it once – TADA! I am not kidding – it was amazing!

Since then my family has continued to be impressed by each and every new Leap Frog “toy” that we get. So when I was given the opportunity to evaluate the LeapFrog MyRobotFriend iOS app I jumped at the opportunity!
This app says it is geared to 9 years + but I think most 7 or 8 year olds will understand and love this!
So what’s it all about? Basically your child programs the robot through the obstacle course to get the coins, avoid the stuffed animals, and ultimately get the treasure. Your child programs the robot by telling it to go:

  • forward (using multiple cards so uses addition skills)
  • backward (dealing with negative numbers)
  • turn North (cardinal directions)
  • and there’s fun things like rockets to use too.

The program has multiple levels so it will get harder as your child is ready and advances.  As your child finishes levels he will earn coins that he can use to customize his robot. Here is Goof’y’s super cool robot =-)

At the completion of a level your child will get to program the robot to do different dance moves – something my son thought was HILARIOUS! As your child levels us you will be introduced to the Fat Cat – a perfect ‘bad guy”! We’ve only begun to discover all the cool things about this game and I have to say I enjoy playing with him almost as much as he does!
LeapFrog MyRobotFriend iOS app teaches programming skills, problems solving skills, logic, reasoning, and more! As a parent I am thrilled by it’s educational value.

My son loves it because he gets to play “the cool robot game”

For all you visual people out there (that’s me too!) here is a look at the game:
