So what was different this time around? First of all, my boys were hooked on LeapFrog: Letter Factory They watched it over and over and knew the songs backwards and forwards. I love using music to teach kids. It really makes learning stick!
But I believe the main teaching tool was their LeapFrog Leapster. They played it on car rides, waiting in restaurants or for appointments, in their beds at night if they couldn't fall asleep, and so on. They did not have any video games at that time so this was their favorite toy.
LeapPad2 which resembles more of an iphone or ipad. Boy, is it nice! In fact, it is so nice that it's voted toy of the year!
My two-year-old is addicted to using my iphone ever since she was 10 months old. I did not like her
If you are looking for a toy from Santa that will get used for years and is fun and educational, then this may be the one. Enjoy!
