LeapFrog debuts its LeapTV educational console for kids

LeapFrog Enterprises has launched its LeapTV video game console for children with an educational twist — games approved by those who teach kids.

The LeapTV costs $150 and has a lot of content: eight games now, with 100 more educator-approved projects in the pipeline (and videos, too) for kids ages 3 to 8 later in the year. The new product is a bet that the living room console is here to stay despite the rise of the $20 billion dollar-plus mobile market — and that LeapFrog itself has a shot to carve out the market for smaller kids who enjoy educational entertainment (or more for their parents, who want their kids to learn while playing games). Kids will be able to play with personalization features and motion-sensing controls that are similar to those that Nintendo introduced with the Wii in 2006.
