Learning Skills

Get right into the action with favorite Transformers Rescue Bots! Your child will have loads of exciting opportunities to apply new knowledge, but first, there’s some fun training to do. Little ones learn about the complexities of nature and of natural phenomena. They review a Rescue Briefing, select a mission and get familiar with using a map to better understand the challenge that lies ahead. Then it’s time to take action! The first task is to select the correct gear for the mission at hand.

Once suited up, little adventure seekers head to the scene, avoiding hazards and remembering to collect Energon to power up. To complete the rescue mission, little ones must identify landforms, hazards and more. When the mission’s complete, they use their newly acquired knowledge to disable the Disaster Machine.



The LeapFrog Difference

LeapFrog has created a learning/play environment that is developmentally appropriate for children ages 4 to 7 years. Transformers Rescue Bots Race to the Rescue introduces a range of different earth science topics from earthquakes to volcanoes and thunderstorms in a non-threatening, play-based manner. Each fun-filled lesson includes basic science concepts and vocabulary terms relating to each of the new topics. Your little scientist will also be more informed about how different natural phenomena impact human communities and lives. The lifecycle of a natural disaster is animated throughout the game, and your child gets to witness how first responders—firefighters, police, emergency pilot, etc.—might react and what special equipment they use. Tips on how to be safe in an emergency are also woven into each story.

Designed to help your child feel safe and empowered, they receive light exposure to an often frightening topic. “This game builds learning right into the action. As children prepare the Rescue Bots for missions and pilot them through obstacles, they learn about real life science and social studies concepts that are key to completing those rescue missions. Whether it’s outfitting first responders with the correct gear, identifying areas in danger on a map or understanding the science behind natural phenomena, children explore science concepts as they navigate their way to success in this game.” – Clement C., LeapFrog Learning Expert

  • Non-stop play, My 5 year old son loves this game. He has been playing with his LeapPad at least 2-3 times a week since he got it for Christmas in 2011, but since getting this game he has played it everyday. It is a great mix of education and action. The education piece isn’t reading/math focused as many of the other games are, this one is focused on logic, map skills, and natural disaster knowledge. The natural disaster piece is taught subtly by Cody and the team giving little facts or tips during game play. My son randomly told a cashier at the store the other day about how earthquakes happen when tectonic plates slide against each other 😉 The game is simple to learn, but still challenging enough to keep him engaged with it for a long time. He doesn’t win every round on the first try, but it is fun enough that he wants to keep trying. I would recommend this game for older preschoolers – 1st or 2nd grade if they are still interested in Rescue Bots.
  • Favorite game!, He’s had a leap pad for over year, but he plays with it far more now with this game than he ever did before. It’s perfect for entertainment, but even better for knowing that your child is learning something at the same time!
  • As a parent who grew up with Transformers, seeing my son begin to play with Transformers is wonderful. The Rescuebots TV show is great for his age. The violence is minimal and the heroes aren’t running around with guns shooting the bad guys. In order to make the show’s premise to a video game introduces the Rescuebots shooting water at various disaster machines. As a parent it makes me a little wary about introducing more violence to my son’s impressionable mind. (We do limit his game play of this and all other video games)
    That being said, my son absolutely loves the game. It is his favorite game. He has played it through multiple time and loves to tell my about tornadoes and other things he learned in game. Perhaps my favorite experience was when my son told me, “Blades shoots mustard.”
