A new game console for the holiday season from LeapFrog

Boot Camp feature for Monday, October 27, 2014

A new game console for the holiday season…from LeapFrog.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    LeapFrog has become the leader over the years in merging technology toys with learning content for kids.   And now the company has decided to make the leap into a game console that hooks up to your TV.   It’s called LeapTV and it features a camera for putting kids into games and unique controllers that can transform from a two handed device into a wand for sports games and more.   LeapFrog VP David Perkinson….

“We talk to a lot of kids in our building, testing all kinds of products, whether it’s games that we’re making or consoles that we have in development, and one of the things we’ve been hearing a lot from them over the last couple of years, particularly since the launch of PS4 and Xbox One, is that these kids want to have a console gaming experience but there’s nothing for them out there to play.”

LeapTV is designed to solve that.  It sells for about a hundred fifty dollars with full games priced at about thirty dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
