LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon – CLOSED

This is a repost, but there is a giveaway this time!

Ever notice how kids frequently end up in the same (or close to) professions as their parents?  Lawyers kids end up as lawyers, doctors have doctors, business persons have kids that end up in business.  I’m not sure why this happens, but it probably has something to do with kids seeing their parents success (or the parents encouraging their kids to take the same route that they did).  Either way, I’m sure you can all agree that this happens frequently.

I work in finance (my dad was a business man).  I always loved math while in school, whether it was simple addition or stats classes, I always enjoyed math and did well at it, so really it’s not surprising that I ended up in finance rather than an English teacher.

LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon, which was out on DVD February 23rd, is helping young mathematicians get a jump start on their math skills.

Here is a synopsis of the educational movie:

Join Tad and Lily as they blast off on an exciting educational adventure! Tad and Lily need the perfect collection of things to take to school for their math assignment. When they finally decide on moon rocks, there’s just one problem—how will they get them? With some magical help from their firefly friend Edison, they board a rocket ship to start their quest. Soon the twins learn that math is everywhere, even in outer space! Watch as they use their skills in counting, sorting, skip counting and recognizing patterns to overcome obstacles, find new friends and make the trip back to Earth!

LeapFrog is one of the best selling and most recommended educational brands by Moms (and us Moms know what we are talking about – right? ) My daughter will be watching LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon regularly to give her a jump start in math.  My husband wasn’t as strong in math as I was, so it will be interesting to see who’s genes she received. Whether she ends up in computers, business, or as an English teacher, it doesn’t really matter as long as she is happy.  I may as well get her started early with Math, and Thanks so LeapFrog: Math Adventures to the  Moon, we can learn together.

  1. email subscriber

    I forgot to say in comment #6: No, I did not follow in my parents’ footsteps career-wise.

  2. I saw they have a ton of different learning dvds. I did not end up
    anywhere near my parents jobs.

  3. I learned that there is a digital download option as well as the DVD! My mom, grandfather and I are all writers, but none of us do it as a full-time profession. My grandad owned a nursery, my mother was a lawyer and before I stayed home with my children, I was a waitress. Not much in common there! 🙂

  4. 4 new songs! I ended up in a professional similar to my dad. He was an electronic tech and I enedd up being a curriculum writer teaching Math, Science, and Robotics! I play with robotos

  5. email sub #1 sorry my web browser cuts off my window so I can’t see what I’m tyoping! sorry for the poor spelling or mistyping!

  6. I love how they use singing to make it more memorable. My mom worked as a teacher’s aid for a few years and I became a teacher — so similar. Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. I love that LF has a Letter Factory DVD. My Dad was a boiler operator, and my Mom
    a volunteer fire fighter and homemaker. I became a nurse and am now a homemaker.
    So, yah, I guess it’s similar. Thanks for the chance.

  8. Both my husband and I have had jobs similar to our parents… You can watch clips of the videos on the Leapfrog site.

  9. Includes 4 great new songs! I did not end up in a profession close to my parents…but my siblings did!

  10. Nope, my Mom was in Admin work and my Dad was a Realtor. Me. I am a
    lucky enough to be a Stay At Home Mom!

    It has a good beat, fun graphics and learning too.

  11. I found a dvd I didn’t know about–Let’s go to school. As far as parents–not really. My mother didn’t work until my father dumped her. Then she worked as a restaurant hostess. My father was in sales and I ended up as a techie in the IT world.

  12. I learned there is a more basic Letter Factory that I would like to purchase for my twins. I guess you could say my profession is the same as my mother because she was a SAHM too. 🙂

  13. The Talking Words Factory is a great idea for phonics.
    I wanted to be a cop like my dad, but then he reminded
    me that crook use real bullets! I worked at a utility
    company instead.

  14. I like the one about school and getting ready to go to school. I am a stay at home mom like my mom was.

  15. on LeapFrog’s site, i read that Let’s Go To School dvd is coming out soon.

    No, I did not go into the same field as my parents… but one thing similar is that we each worked for major corporations and had a long-term career with them… i worked for state government, while not a corporation it was still a large employer, and worked there for almost 18 years before deciding to stay home with my children.

  16. i saw that Leapfrog manufactures games up to age group 8+!
    My dad is currently unemployed like me, so i guess we did end up in
    the same boat for a bit.

  17. I learned there are four other dvds available. I was a teacher for five years before my kids were born and my mom was a teacher before she too had kids.

  18. math adventure moon includes 4 new songs and is avail in dvd and digital
    download.

    i am a pharmacist like my mother. 🙂

  19. I learned that there is a digital download option as well as the DVD!I didn’t do anything close to what my mom and dad did!

  20. I love how they have sneak peaks!! 🙂

    I work with my Dad – so I guess that’s pretty close!!! 😉

  21. They have all kinds of educational DVDs I would love. I am a bookkeeper. My Dad was a foreman and my Mom was a nurse, so nope, nothing like them. Thanks for the chance! mogrill@comcast.net

  23. I turned out nothing like my parents.
    I don’t think that sounded right.
    My mom was a housewife, and my dad an electrical engineer.
    I became a nurse.

  24. I saw a video Talking words factory on the website. and I ended up doing the same thing as my mom
    I am a SAHM.

  25. DVD’s also available include: Let’s Go To School, Talking Word Factory,
    and Letter Factory. I guess you can say I went into the same profession
    as my mom – she was & I am a stay at home mom.

  31. I ended up in a very different profession than either of my parents! I like that you can get a digital download!

  32. Forgot to mention, I went into education like my Daddy (and his parents). I am not a classroom teacher, like they were, but I was.

  34. I noticed they had Talking Words Factory. My 2 year old grandson could benefit
    from this. My Mom was waitress and a housewife. I worked as a Dental Assistant for several years and retired quite young being content at home with crafts and my piano. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway

  35. The songs are catchy and fun.

    Im getting my major in criminalogy.
    My father was a paramedic, and I guess Im like him in wanting to be
    hands on in the middle of action, and helping people.

  36. I had no idea you could download digital copies of LeapFrog dvds! Cool!
    My dad has a degree in Business and owns his own computer programming business.
    I have a business admin degree and worked as a salon receptionist until staying home
    with my 3 kids!
    i also Rtweeted for ya!~ luckieleah

  37. i visted the leapfrogdvd site and I noticed they offer digital downloads which is so much easier then buying the dvd in a store or online… As far as ending up in a profession similar to my parents.. nope not at all!

  38. Talking Words Factory.
    I wanted to be an astronaut but lost interest after the challenger exploded.
