London, 13th August – This August sees the launch of Nick Jr. Leap, a fun, online world created to develop children’s mathematic, problem-solving and language skills. Free to play, the site was designed in line with the 2014 Early Years Foundation Framework and available now at

Designed for children aged between two and seven-years-old, parents can create accounts for their children to tailor the site experience. Players can explore three worlds introduced by favourite Nick Jr. characters such as Dora the Explorer, Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi.

To further personalise kids’ experiences, they can select their very own Nick Jr. Leap friend, an avatar who will accompany them on their journey and reward them with gameplay and animation as they complete tasks and move up a level.

Nick Jr. Leap gives younger children the opportunity to co-play with an adult or older sibling, as well as allowing independent play for older children. Grown-ups can keep track of children’s progress in the ‘Grown Ups’ area and help them reach new levels. Nick Jr. Leap is mobile responsive, so it can be played anywhere.
