Leap Frog TAG Solar System Adventure Pack
Challenges children to ask interesting scientific questions.
Slightly robotic sounding voices.
To access the Solar System Adventure Pack you need to have the TAG reader pen. Once you have this it’s a fairly easy set up process. The reader pen comes with clear instructions and all you need to do is download the ‘Leap Frog Connect’ application to your PC or Mac. You then choose the product/toy you wish to register and away you go! (If you are having any problems with the download, try switching your firewall off while it downloads). You then need to pick the audio file you will need in order to access the Solar System Adventure Pack, plug the TAG reader into your computer and drag and drop the audio files onto it – the site has clear instructions for the whole process. The Pack consists of a sturdy, double sided board and a Passport to the Planets leaflet and stickers. One side of the board features the planets in the solar system – touch a planet to hear many facts about it. This side also includes some ‘How do we know…’ Q&A’s and a Space Race game (finding planets etc quickly) with 2 levels. The opposite side has a game for up to 2 players, where you can use your space knowledge to finish before your opponent. The board also covers phases of the moon, seasons – in fact a breadth of scientific knowledge to keep children and adults amazed and entertained for hours!
