This news makes me happy. I have been a fan of LeapFrog since my son was an infant. Their interactive age-appropriate toys have always made it easy for me to pinpoint what his interests are and what I should be focusing on. My four and a half year old has grown up enjoying LeapFrog products and is a huge fan of the reading systems and apps.
As a parent, I appreciate the fact that they take the time to create products specifically geared for children and their learning needs. LeapFrog uses the core curriculum to teach children the basic skills needed in their day-to-day lives as well as in school.
