I love educational toys. Any toy that can teach my child something is very important to me. With LeapFrog, that is always possible. This is one of the reasons we buy a lot of LeapFrog toys. They are fun and educational, and my kids will play with them for longer then most of their toys. I feel good when my children are playing with LeapFrog. I was very excited to be able to have my kids review a couple of LeapFrog toys. We received the Learn & Grove Counting Maracas and the new Chat & Count Cell Phone!
The day that these arrived, my son was right at my side eagerly awaiting me to open that box! I let me son have the Chat & Count Cell Phone and my daughter got the Learn & Grove Counting Maracas. My son was instantly engaged in his new cell phone. He was intrigued with the sounds and the animation on the little screen. I love this because my son is learning his numbers and how to count and this is great for that! It is fun and allows him to interact with the little doggy on the screen. He loves this! My daughter absolutely loves the Maracas! The sound, when they shake, is not annoyingly loud, it is just right. I love how one of these Maracas has a switch for English/Spanish and how loud you want it to go. That way, your child can learn some Spanish as well as English and it helps your child learn to count too. It also has a light that changes different colors at the end of one of the rattles. We brought it into our room at night and the kids were jumping on the bed with the lights off to this light! They love it! The products from LeapFrog have always been strong and kid-proof. We have yet to break a LeapFrog toy. They are quality learning toys and my kids love them. What more could I ask for?
I also really like that the LeapFrog toys are affordable. I have always noticed this about them. The prices are right and the toys are great. I really appreciate that as a Mom and not working and my husband being the sole money maker. Money can be very tight at times, and I like to know that I can still afford a great learning toy for my children on their birthday or Christmas, when those times roll around each year.
I was sent the LeapFrog Learn & Grove Counting Maracas and the Chat & Count Cell Phone to review and keep. These are me and my kids honest opinions about these products, thanks!
