Learning Made Fun! ~ LeapFrog GIVEAWAY!

LeapFrog products have been a favorite in our home ever since we discovered them a year or two ago! Not only do our kids enjoy them (a LOT!), but I also feel great knowing that the books, games and toys that my kids are using and playing with are full of educational fun. I love that there is a purpose to their products. LeapFrog truly knows how to mix learning and fun in a way that we've never seen before!

One of the products that we received just in time for the Back to School season was the Leapster Explorer. It is a fabulous hand-held gaming system that encourages learning. There are all sorts of games, e-books, videos, etc. that are available for the Leapster Explorer. By simply hooking up your Explorer to the internet you can download many learning apps and other great activities. Most of these activities, apps, e-books, etc. you do need to purchase before you can download them...but there are is one free code that you'll receive for a download for your Explorer. We haven't spent much time trying out the online world of the Leapster yet, but I'm sure we will enjoy exploring it more and more as time goes on.


Along with our Leapster we received The Penguins of Madagascar game is very helpful in teaching and maintaining some simple mathematics. It also teaches some fun and unique animal facts - a few that I didn't even know before! I did find that there were a few phrases throughout the game that I found a little inappropriate and would rather not have my child pick-up and repeat. Nothing horrible, but we just want our kids to be respectful and, if repeated, some of the phrases said throughout the game would not be seen as respectful in our home. Overall though, it is a good game with great graphics and lots of learning opportunities.

We also received the Tag reading system from LeapFrog. With a 5 year old son who is going to be learning to read this year (and a 3 year old daughter who wishes she could learn to read too!), Tag was the perfect LeapFrog product for our family! The Tag reader itself is a thick, easy to grasp, pencil-like product - which is amazingly smart! I can hardly believe how much that little "reading-pen" knows. ;) The Tag was an instant hit, and the books we received (Toy Story 3, as well as a set of books from the Learn to Read series about vowels) have been very much enjoyed. They are packed full of great sound effects, and of course it is completely fun for our kids to be able to "read" a book without Mommy or Daddy's help!

I really like that the Tag books feature some of the popular movies that kids seem to love - such as Cars! I know for certain that a book on Cars would be "read" over and over and over in our home. The Tag is simply another great way to encourage the love of reading at a young age.

WIN IT!
LeapFrog is giving a Glimpse reader their very own Leapster Explorer with an extra game or two! In order to get one entry, head over to the LeapFrog website and tell us one educational skill that you'd like to see your child learn from a LeapFrog product.
