If I was a toddler these days, I would be all over the new Leap Frog products like nobody’s business. Seriously!
The products they have come out with, just in the past year since my oldest son got his Leapster, are amazing! And I am really excited to be able to give away a Tag Reading system to one of my readers!
I also had the chance to review the new LeapPad, which is featured over there in the picture! And kids toys have come such a long way since I was young… heck since my nephew was a kid too, and he’s only 15!
No joke! I was extremely impressed by the functionality of the LeapPad Explorer, especially since it retails for only $99.99. You would think it would be right up there with the iPad, because basically… it is an iPad for kids.
My favorite highlights?
- The digital camera & video camera capabilities
- The book storage
- The BUILT-IN apps and cartridges! (Over 100!)
- The art studio
I especially love the art studio because my oldest son loves creating pictures, and coloring. The book option is also amazing, as it encourages your kids to love reading from an early age. Even if they are not at the level where they are learning to read on their own, it is a great way to store simple and fun books for them.
But, I don’t think anything beats the digital camera and video camera feature. Around 2 years of age, all my kids wanted to start playing with my digital camera or my FlipCam and make their own pictures or videos. Now they have their own device so that they can do both!
The durability is impressive as well. I hate to say that I threw a kids toy, but knowing that it isn’t going to shatter into a million pieces is a big thing for me as a mom. I don’t want to be going through 70 LeapPads. The batteries didn’t even fall out because they have been secured. With kids who think batteries are toys, like mine… this is another positive feature!
And there are a gazillion apps! You really can’t go wrong with the LeapPad this holiday season. Below are some of Leap Frog’s top sellers your kids might love this holiday season… best part is I am giving away a Tag Reading System to one lucky reader!
