LeapFrog announced the availability of RockIt Twist, offering a unique new twist on handheld, educational gaming. With four sides of colorful, light-up controls that include buttons, dials, a spinner, slider, switch and D-pad, how kids play is as important as what they play. Reinventing educational gaming for kids ages four to eight, RockIt Twist comes with 12 preloaded games so kids can twist, turn, play and learn. Three levels of difficulty across five game play categories help kids learn skills including literacy, math, problem-solving and creativity all while having fun!
“We’re really excited to offer something truly innovative and unique in handheld gaming for this age group,” said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America, LeapFrog’s parent company. “RockIt Twist gives kids a high-quality gaming experience with fun new challenges at every turn, as well as the educational content LeapFrog is known for, so kids are learning while they play!”RockIt Twist is a rotatable, handheld game system that offers a totally unique way to play exciting video games with light-up controls that surround the screen. During game play, one of the eight game controls will light up to indicate when each control is needed throughout a game. Kids can also nurture three adorable virtual RockIt Pets that hatch and grow from eggs. Since there’s no need for Wi-Fi, kids can play anywhere. They can also listen to their own music with the built-in MP3 player. A built-in rechargeable battery, volume controls and a headphone jack are also included.
