Review:

Disney's newest princess, Merida, has an adventure all her own in the new LeapFrog Explorer Learning Game, Brave. For those not familiar with Merida's character, she's a princess who takes her destiny into her own hands, rather than chasing or pining away for her prince. Here, Merida stars as a vehicle for scientific education as she explores all that the environment has to offer.

Children play along with games and challenges that somewhat follows the movie's storyline choosing among fifteen unique quests that teach life science, earth science, logic, and reasoning. As they move through the various "zones" of the game, they will learn over 100 facts about nature including the common names for parts of plants and animals. And, they can explore the concepts of force and gravity with Merida's iconic bow and arrows.
