LeapPad:Disney The Pirate Fairy: Pixie Dust Magic

Spring 2015 Games
Ages: 5 - 8 yrs.
Price: $10.00
Review:

When Tinker Bell spills a bottle of blue pixie dust on herself and her friends, all of their colors and talents mix together. Players use a variety of simple machines, including, but not limited to, wedges, wheels, and levers, to solve puzzles and create more pixie dust to help Zarina, the pirate fairy, straighten everything out. Children learn the basics of each machine by itself before challenges become more complex with multiple machines required. This is a fun way to introduce, solidify, and build upon key problem-solving skills. The game, which features familiar Disney characters, is designed to get young children interested in the cause and effect of how simple machines work; it also teaches children proper vocabulary for those machines.
