8 Years & Older
Kids that are serious about spelling (can anyone say "spelling bee?") will get an unlimited supply of learning with the combined Turbo Twist and Mind Station connector. The talking, teaching, musical Turbo Twist allows kids to complete complex spellings, get instant answers, learn spelling rules, and have words repeated. Progress is continuously assessed and adjusted to challenge kids as they play with the Turbo. A headphone jack keeps the rather loud machine quiet when others are around, and a slot on the machine's side accommodates the Mind Station cartridge.
Buy Turbo Twist Spelling with Mind Station by LeapFrog
The Mind Station--which can be used on any of LeapFrog's advanced learning systems--works to extend the Turbo's lessons to your PC, for new word downloads, tests, or spelling lists; and grading and game uploads from LeapFrog's Web site. Words used in the system correlate with a national spelling curriculum, endorsed by education experts.
The set includes the Turbo Twist (much like the original Turbo Twist), the Mind Station connector, the station's cartridge, and an adaptor cable. Unfortunately, the Mind Station is not Mac compatible. Four AA batteries for Turbo Twist, and four AA batteries for the Mind Station are required (not included). --Diane Beall
