Leappad Game Review - My Little Pony Friendship is Magic

Increasingly Lara, who is nearly 5, is choosing to play with her own Leappad Ultra over my IPad. Result! I think this is largely due to her having a few games and apps on the Leappad which are really engaging and which is really does want to play. Current favourites are Minnie Mouse Bowtique and this new game, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.

This My Little Pony game is available for Leappad Ultra, Leappad and Leapster Explorer.  It costs £20 which is quite a sum of money but Lara does love it and has already played with it more than any other game she has ever owned on any play system.

The game features six different challenges which need to be completed. Each challenge is broadly based on a mathematical theme.  I have been pleasantly surprised how much this game does actually exercise her maths skills - there are balancing apps where you have to choose equal values; sums where you have to group things and estimation skills as well.

Lara really enjoys the My Little Pony theme (it is a 'thing' of hers right now) and the characters talk and interact a lot - there is a good story of a challenge that brings the ponies together.  Lara most enjoys the flying parts of the game where you have to tilt the Leappad to help the pony fly; I think this is a great use of the Leappad.

I would recommend this My Little Pony game for children aged 4-7 years old. It is available for download directly from Leapfrog or as a cartridge for Leappad or Leapster.
