    Requires:
  • 8 "C" batteries
  • Phillips screwdriver for battery installation
  • Television with standard video/audio input

The Good: Video game features calibrating levels that customize to preschoolers' ability

The Challenging: Younger preschoolers may find games challenging but will grow into them

In a Nutshell: Video game system gets preschoolers jumping and dancing while making learning fun


Featuring Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, this interactive video game system plugs directly into your TV. View larger.


With 8 different games, the Zippity encourages kids to be active and helps develop skills like coordination and memory.View larger.
Giant Joy Stick Get Kids Moving
Designed to get kids moving and learning, the Zippity is an educational video game system that preschool-age children play by stepping, dancing, and jumping, and moving their arms. The system consists of a main unit, which the child uses to control the onscreen game, and a console that plugs into any television with a standard video/audio input. Both the main unit and the console require four "C" batteries each, as well as a Phillips screwdriver to install them.

The main unit, which requires minimal assembly, is essentially an oversized joy stick--so instead of sitting sedately with a game controller in hand, kids play the Zippity game with their whole body and get plenty of gross motor coordination practice. It consists of a large activity mat with different colored sections, and the "bopper," which is a joystick-like pole that requires big arm movements for moving backward, forward, and side to side.

Play and Learn
The Zippity's eight games feature favorite Disney characters in quality, three-dimensional animation. All are designed to introduce preschool-age kids to a wide range of learning skills--not least of which is practicing listening and following directions. The game system starts out with Mickey Mouse teaching your child (and you!) the basics of how to use the controller, and each game is introduced with either a narrator or a character giving instructions.

Listening, memory skills, and coordination skills are also developed in several games, such as "Darby's Honey Pot Jam," "Goofy's Fancy Dancing," and "June's Twist n'Twirl." These games ask the child to do certain "moves" in a short sequence to create a dance, for example, to step on the green section of the mat or to push the bopper in a certain direction.

The Zippity introduces plenty of other learning skills through the eight fun games, including color recognition, letter and number recognition, and even introduction to classical composers and world cultures. In games featuring Handy Manny, kids get a little introduction to Spanish vocabulary; and in "Super Sleuths on the Case," kids put their problem solving skills to use by helping Winnie the Pooh collect clues to answer questions.

The "Learning Path" in the system's onscreen main menu provides a bit more information about the learning skills the Zippity introduces to your child. Leap Frog also has a more robust online Learning Path Web site, which is touted as a complement to all of its products, including the Zippity. We found, however, that the Learning Path Web site is better suited to use with Leap Frog's other Internet-connectable toys and doesn't augment the Zippity experience in a substantial way.

Different Learning Levels Customize to Child's Ability
Each game features two levels of difficulty, and at each level the game calibrates itself to the child's level of advancement, so the games can grow with your child. We found that our three-year-old toy tester is just old enough to start using this toy. She required an adult to reinforce the directions given by the game--more practice would make the process easier, and older children would also be able to catch on more quickly.

Be warned: although the picture on the box shows a child energetically leaping on the interactive mat, the pace of the games is much slower, especially at Level 1. But the slower pace and the level of challenge doesn't make them any less enjoyable. Although our toy tester found the games challenging, she had a lot of fun trying-- and she would only get better with practice. And once the included games are mastered, other game cartridges are available for separate purchase.

I have a 3 year old boy and I am constantly researching the next best toy. I am not a fan of video games but I thought something educational would be nice and fun for him. I looked at the Leap Frog website and watched the video on the Zippity even before it came out. The videos and the overall write up looked great so I we got it for him for his 3rd Birthday. We got it at Bjs so it did not cost that much, I think it was $65 plus the Cars game was $24. The games that came with the unit were dull and boring. He lost interest after one use. Cars was okay but again, not the most captivating concepts and the graphics were fair at best. When others children come over, they all want to try and they too are bored with this product. We have another child on the way and maybe he would like it when he is younger. My 3 year old is unimpressed, just as my wife and I, are unimpressed with this product. I am actually a fan of Leap Frog and their products but this one, to me, is a waste of money. Maybe they will come out with other games that are better but for now, I think the Wii is a better option. I am a huge fan of consumer reviews and read many before making decisions. I hope this helps others. Good luck with the toy buying process.

I bought this toy for my 3 year old because he is too young and not coordinated enough for the older games. HE enjoys playing with it but I am afraid it will get boring for him. The activities are extremly simple and don't seem to grow as the child's abilities grow. I also found that the level of interaction was low that he was not really in charge of making things happen. For example the characcters play instruments even if he just stands there and watches, likewise he can just stand and watch the car he selects win the race in the cars game. No cause and effect. I am hoping that the associated games will be more variety and challenges for higher developmental levels.

I got this for my daughter since she was too young for our wii. It is great to see something available for preschoolers that is designed for this age group. She has learned her colors, increased her coordination, and is getting better at decision making. She also loves playing with the "big bopper" while driving the spaceship on Little Einstiens and jumping on the matt. The learning and games are just the right speed for her growing mind (and body). Really great graphics and stereo sound..cool.

We purchased Zippity for our 3 year old daughter and she loves it. The Level 1 is just challenging enough to get her going and to teach the concepts of the games. Level 2 is where the thinking skills really come into play. We've also purchased the Cars cartridge as well and in that game we've discovered that Level 1 is the challenging level for our daughter right now. We've had this game for about a month now and it gets played about every other day and has held up nicely. I highly recommend it, especially if you have a child who is interested in playing video games but isn't ready for the "big kid" stuff. The graphics are decent for this type of toy as well and the games are cute.

Cute and filled with Disney characters, but not much else to like. The big joystick (or the game itself) has a mediocre response to child's movements, and the games are slow and repetitive. The relatively few cute or fun segments were far outnumbered by the lackluster ones. Being returned considering the price of system and cartridges.

This has been one of my best investments for my 3 kids. I am considering buying one more! My kids are very high energy children and they love this. It's a perfect workout that is also very educational for them. Great for the winter months to get them active when it's too cold outside. We live in Wisconsin! This has helped with my 4 year old daughters learning all the way around. My 2 year old is also learning quickly with this. We are using this as a reward for potty training and it's working. My oldest is 9 and has high functional Autism and he plays with it. Has helped him out with some of his learning delays. It's durable for him which is great because he's on the bigger size for his age. One thing I found useful is buying the corded plug in. Will save you on replacing batteries and it's pays for itself after a month. I highly suggest the Zippity! It teaches coordination. Along with other pre school learning. There is 2 levels So it can be even more learning. I love this!

I bought the zippity for my 4 year old as a birthday gift and was sorely disappointed with this LeapFrog product. We have loved most of the LeapFrog games, like the Leapster, but this has got to be the worst game/toy I have ever bought. Do not make this mistake - the games are completely boring and I have to help my child use the joystick to start the games. Find any other toy and it will be a vast improvement.

Verified Purchase
My daughter begged for a Zippity for her 4th birthday. I was concerned that it would not be much of a challenge for her given the age range suggested on the product, but went ahead and got it for her to try. I should have listened to myself...both levels are too easy, and because I bought it on Amazon I cannot return it. So, less than 2 weeks after my daughter's birthday it's packed away. I does have potential, but for a much younger crowd.
