    Play quantum leapfrog

    Dear Teachers,

    I've found this tagline on the website of a consulting firm, but cannot quite catch its meaning. Is it a pun? Could you please help me understand it literal meaning and its implications?

    Yes, it's a pun.

    Leapfrog is a children's game. You can google that.

    There is also a common phrase, a quantum leap. (It was also a cute television who in the 90s.) It means a major leap in progress when used as a metaphor.

    It's actually a cute pun.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
