My 4 year old daughter got THIS for Christmas this year and it has been a hit for all my kids-but especially those that are learning their letters and following directions. It is portable and easy to bring in the car/van on long trips or just to the grocery store! It is also not too big and easy for them to carry around and hold onto. I am very pleased with this toy-worth the $20!
This year I have found that many of the "Leap Frog" products my kids have truly enjoyed and I find helpful in their learning. I wish we could get all these educational fun tools! Check out THEIR SITE for all the products. Below are some that we have and our kid tested-we approve.
- We have rented lots of THESE from the local library. (shh! don't tell them they are actually learning while enjoying the shows!)
- We got THIS 2 years ago and we have not lost all the pieces yet (some but not all!) and if we do not loose all the letters -if can be quite fun and educational too!
- Last year at Christmas, my oldest received THIS (but in a boys' theme), and it was a total hit among all the kids(he had to share quite a bit!). It was even used as a reward b/c we do not have video games or lots of TV time. It was expensive but a gift from someone else, and it is worth the money....it was great....until...it landed in the toilet! Bye Bye leap frog Leapster-we miss you so!!!
- A friend passed THIS leap frog to us and my kids somewhat enjoy it. It is something that I can pull out every now and then for them to work on quietly at the table while I am teaching the others.
Go HERE for more toy review products!
If you want to join in on the fun (b/c we all know how great it is to see reviews on toys so that we do not spend the money-that is so precious-and the time -that is also so precious- on things and toys that just collect dust.....right?????
Plus, I want to know what your reviews are too so leave me a comment if you are interested. There are always tons of b-days I have to make gift lists for and I need new ideas ;))
