The GeoSafari® Jr. Laptop Jr. Ages 3-7 Edition is a really fun way to add some educational time to your child’s play- for solo time or playing together with friends. My older 2 kids are 4.5 and 6.5 and they really enjoy working together on several of the lesson cards as a team- my daughter is older and can read so she helps with directions but she loves helping her brother with things so they are frequently playing this together. Without fighting. This is a rare thing in my house so I try to let them play when they ask.
I love as a mom that the learning cards for this laptop store INSIDE- there aren’t separate components to keep track of. (Does this drive anyone else crazy, having to keep track of parts of things separately?) The handle makes for easy grab and go, and this is the new “go to” toy the kids want to bring with us when we go someplace that we may be stuck waiting around. I have to be really honest too and say its nice that this comes in a fun, neutral, kid color- I don’t think that everything has to be geared towards boys or girls…its just a fun teal and purple and great for everyone. The kids like this because it’s fun and engaging, and interactive.
Give little learners an early “download” of the skills and subjects they’ll explore later in school.
- Includes 63 double-sided lesson cards that store inside the unit and explore reading and math readiness, beginning science and social studies, and more in laptop-style activities
- Offers 3 modes of play: 1 player, 2 player and head-to-head
- Features lights and sound that guide game play, track scores and provide feedback
- Compact, durable game system requires 4 AA batteries, included
- Grades PreK-2
I also like the variety of subjects/themes for the learning cards- there is a really wide range of activities and subjects covered so kids won’t get bored just working on one skill over and over again. The sound isn’t super loud which means the games itself don’t make me get a headache.
