If you have young children from the ages of 4 to 7, the Leapster version is the way to go. It narrates the tale of Prince Naveen finding and falling in love with Tiana, a New Orleans girl who has a dream of owning a restaurant. Along with hearing the story, kids will play educational and creative games with the characters from the movie.
From the main menu, the game offers five activities. In one, played with Tiana, kids help her to cook by identifying foods, counting specific numbers of ingredients into a pot and chopping others into the correct number of pieces. In another activity, kids guide Prince Naveen (who has been turned into a frog by an evil spell) across numbered lily pads to rescue a trapped Princess Tiana. The three levels of difficulty let kids practice identifying numbers from 1 to 10, as well as adding them.
