I was so happy to receive a LeapPad from Leapfrog to review. I reached out to them because I am obsessed with this brand.
Leapfrog videos are what taught my older kids their letters. No joke, my 17 month old son (Cooper) could say each letter and sound. It was all from those leap and lily videos (I wish I could take credit lol).
The LeapPad is the perfect thing for Cohen. Here’s what I love:
- It serves as a tablet. It’s no secret that Cohen loves his tv shows. He’s always borrowing my phone to watch them online. With the LeapPad I am able to download those shows. There’s so many of them (shimmer and shine, octonauts, paw patrol, team umizoomi, and tons more). The shows cost a few dollars for a bundle, but it’s worth it to me to have them downloaded onto the tablet (especially for road trips).
- There’s 100s of amazing learning games. The device includes many free apps that are amazing! They teach letters, emotions, words, reading. I love the reading app. You can select their level. With Cohen the story will be read to him while showing the words. With my older son Bauer, he will read the story himself. They are interactive stories, so your child may think they are just playing a game lol.
- The way that Leap and Lily teach letters, I believe is pure genius. I method that works so quickly. So it’s fun to have the Leap and Lily activities right on the tablet.
- Back in the day we use to have the leapfrog toys and they all needed batteries (kind of annoying). Now you don’t need to worry about batteries. You can charge them overnight for hours of play.
Here’s a little demo video of Cohen with his LeapPad Ultimate
