  • So much fun, they don't realize they're learning!

    Sep 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: An educational and fun LeapPad intended for younger children - excellent learning tool!
    Cons: Pen cord not long enough, I wish books/plates snapped into place

    Summary: My husband's sister does not read the age-recommendations on toys before she buys them -- that's how my boy received a LeapFrog My First LeapPad for his first birthday (at least she did manage to get him the "My First" version). Although this toy is ... read more

    Pros: It's a brilliant idea for interactive learning matched to the skills of a toddler.
    Cons: It is not very durable, goes through a lot of batteries, and no effective troubleshooting.

    Summary: First let me start by saying that this toy is about the greatest toy every thought up in theory. I have long thought kids would enjoy books more and learn from them more if they could interact with them. I bought this toy new two months ago for my ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use. Great for car trips.
    Cons: Difficult for a young child to flip the book over.

    Summary: We bought a My First Leap Pad for our 2 1/2 year old to use on a long car trip. The box says the Leap Pad is for ages 3 and up, but our child caught on very quickly how to use it. In just a few minutes he mastered turning the pages and placing the ... read more

    Pros: Lots of great little books with fun characters. Long battery life. Many fun activities.
    Cons: Durability questionable. Small cartridges easily lost.

    Summary: Not to sound old (I'm 33), but back in my day, we didn't have no talkin' books. We had us some books with cassettes that gave you a little "BOING... Turn the Page" but that was the extent of the interaction, and that's the way it was and we liked it! ... read more

    Pros: Encourages learning in a fun and interesting manner; great toy for preschoolers.
    Cons: Requires batteries; kids must remember to press GO with every turn of the page.

    Summary: While shopping for Christmas gifts in late November with my husband, we decided our 3 1/2 year old son, Tristan, needed some kind of educational toy as he prefers to spend too much of his time either watching movies or playing video games (it's a bit ... read more

    Pros: Educational and with the additional books it makes the learning endless.
    Cons: Hard to store - books come out easily - mechanical problems.

    Summary: My daughter didn't quite know what to do with this when I bought it for her second birthday. It is a great computer-like system that you insert a book into the front and a cartridge into the side and your child can learn about all the preschool basics. ... read more

    Summary: I had considered buying this for my daughter until I found out it was near the same price as the regular leappad, not as many books were available for it, and was for ages 3 and up. So I decided I would just wait and get the regular leappad in a year or ... read more
