Product Rave!!


For any of you reading with kids about Zachary's age, take note!

This is the BEST TOY EVER INVENTED!

First of all, Zachary LOVES playing it. So much so that the *threat* of game time lost will usually get him to act properly. So much so that he'll actually sit still and pretty quiet throughout a resturant dinner (not that we have many of those anymore!). I've been so concerned about him having ADHD and yet he shows a great aptitude to be able to sit still for the Leapster during game time.

Second, he is LEARNING. And learning WAY above his age level. Last week, I was shocked when he and Dory and Marlin were working on addition. And Zachary was doing very well. Well, last night at dinner he surprised us furthur when he started working on multiplication. Yes, that's right. My 4 year old was doing multiplication and got 4 of them right in a row. They use the numbers and pictures! Zachary actually got 6 x 4 = 24 correct!

I'm so proud! But I know that this game system is awesome! There aren't many games for preschoolers out there, but he seems happy doing the same 3 cartridges over and over. And so far, so good. He got it for his birthday and has been *pretty* good about keeping the games together with his game machine!

A big thanks to Jenn (http://mac3mom.blogspot.com/) for raving about them in her blog and giving me the idea to get it for Zachary! It's a HUGE hit!

I ALSO SAW HOW ZACHARY LOVES HIS GAME. WE WERE AT A RESTAURANT LAST SUNDAY FOR BREAKFAST & ANOTHER LITTLE BOY WANTED TO SEE ZACHARY'S GAME TO PLAY. THIS CHILD WAS ABOUT 3ISH. ZACHARY'S HAND EYE COORDINATION WAS VERY GOOD! HE DIDN'T PLAY IT MUCH BUT WHEN HE DID HE SURE ENJOYED IT! I WILL HAVE TO WATCH FOR TOYS R US FOR XMAS!
