When I think of the brands of the items that my children play and interact with, LeapFrog definitely comes to mind... as the creator of educational toys and fun handheld electronic games.

So, when I heard that they teamed up with Lionsgate Home Entertainment to release two new DVDs for 2011, it took my brain a little while to get used to the concept before realizing that I was sure both of my kids would be extremely interested in seeing them. Combine the fun of discovery and learning that LeapFrog is known for with a cute way to bring their beloved characters to life and what was there not to love?

And, as soon as LeapFrog: The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park and LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy arrived and we saw the bright colors and smiling faces on the boxes, we were all ready to sit down to take a look.

Big Sister E decided that we should watch "the movie about the letters" first, so we sat back to see what adventures Tad, Lily and Scout the puppy would entertain us with in The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park.

As soon as the colorful images and jazzy music came on the screen, Big Sister E and Little Sister B were sold. They sat riveted to the screen watching Edison, a firefly friend of Tad, Lily and Scout, bring them to the place of his childhood dreams only to discover that Alistair Alphabelly's Amazing Amusement Park is closed.

When Edison gets stuck atop the Fantastical Ferris Wheel, they discover that in order to turn on the rides in the park they have to use the magic of the alphabet. By learning all of the upper and lowercase letters through word and song, Tad, Lily and Scout work together to save their friend and, of course, save the day!

As this movie went on, I noticed that not only was it extremely mesmerizing, but that it was at least 10 minutes into the DVD before either of my kids made a sound or even looked away from the screen. And that was only for Big Sister E to let me know that "we want to watch the numbers DVD after this one is done."

All in all, the 39 minute running time was just enough that the storyline was completed and there were enough fun and cute songs to keep things moving. I was impressed with how LeapFrog managed to incorporate educational and learning aspects while somehow not making a movie that felt overly stuffy or like kids were directly being taught something.

When it came time to watch Numbers Ahoy, I wondered if the thrill of something new would have worn off... but it didn't. Big Sister E and Little Sister B were just as excited to see where Tad, Lily and Scout's adventure under the sea would take them (and us).

This time Edison is bringing the group on a journey to help with a little number sense for a complicated game, but a pirate mistakenly captures Scout! Tad and Lily must use their new understanding of counting, grouping and estimating to rescue him and navigate the deep while facing foes such as sharks and crab henchmen (even Pirate Pythagoras himself) and begin to see numbers in a whole new way.

About halfway through the 35 minute running time of this DVD, Big Sister E turned to me and said, "I like this show. Do you know why? I like the pirates." Whatever works, I guess! Both she and Little Sister B watched Numbers Ahoy with just as much intensity as The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park and, considering that they were learning at the same time, I was happy about their enjoyment!

A name that parents already know and trust, LeapFrog has managed to incorporate education with fun in both of these great DVDs (ARV $14.98 each). What a great way to keep children engaged with letters and numbers in a unique and outstanding way! There are even bonus features on both DVDs that include "curriculum commentary" from child experts about ways to help your child learn the basics of language and math.

And, thanks to the generosity of LeapFrog, one person will get to bring the joy of learning to the child in their life as well, because...

One lucky person will win The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park AND Numbers Ahoy from LeapFrog!
