We had a great time recently at our LeapFrog party!
The kids enjoyed these little froggy apple snacks, along with decorating their own froggy cookies (sadly, they ate those much too quickly for me to snap a photo!)
We are a LeapFrog family.
From his very first My First LeapPad to his beloved Tag reading system, my son has grown up with LeapFrog in his toy bin. They’ve offered the best educational products for my son. LeapFrog toys have really helped foster his love of reading over the years.
And the brand new LeapPad Explorer is no different. It offers an incredible variety of pre-reading activities, including interactive eBooks and letter writing practice.
I love that the LeapPad Explorer offers an unattached stylus. This small detail may seem inconsequential, but for the mom of a lefty, it really does make a difference. There are no cords to try and wrangle into the right (ahem, left) position. He can freely practice writing his letters just as easily as his right-handed friends.
He even had a chance to show his grandma (a retired preschool director) who happened to be in town for the week. She was incredibly impressed with the LeapPad Explorer, especially with the letter tracing.
My son and his friends loved all the creative activities that the tablet offered. Let’s just say the built-in digital camera got quite a workout while his friends were over. They had a great time making silly faces and snapping photos.
They also had a great time with the Tag reading system and the interactive world map. My son has been using the Tag system for about two years now — it continues to be one of his favorite toys, but this was our first experience with the map. It’s two-sided and is chock full of fun information about each country. There’s even a treasure map and a racing game that kept the kids (and adults!) interested.
Additional apps are available to expand play on the LeapPad. I know this will be one of the hot toys this holiday season. And for good reason.
