We were sent a party pack full of items from the new LeapReader by LeapFrog system. I had heard of the leapfrog system before but I had never tried it out before now.
My first impression was great and I was very impressed by the quality for the books and pens. I played around with the pen a little to figure out it worked. It did take some time and a little effort to get it up and running. So before I gave it out to the kids I made sure to get the books downloaded for them.
We had a few kids over with their parents to play with everything once it was all set up and it got rave reviews. The book options cover an age range from about 4-8.
One of the best features is the paper that is included for the kids to practice writing letters and words. The LeapReader make marks on the special paper, but not on the books or anything else. Which means they can’t color on the walls! The downside is you will have to buy more paper once you run out.
They can play games on the pages, sound out words, spell, answer questions, and listen to the books as a whole. It also has some additional features like built-in audio books, music, and trivia games plus the ability to plug in headphones.
It is a great tool, but your child will not read right away so don’t expect that. You have to be patient until you see a difference in your child’s reading. I really like that it will go at your child’s pace.
The battery life of the pen seems pretty long. We haven’t had to recharge either pen at all after the first day of me charging them to make sure they were ready to go.
You also have the ability to download up to 100 audio books, music, and trivia games from the LeapReader Library which is a great resource.
I think this is a great resource to get them ahead before they start preschool or kindergarten.
You can purchase the leapReader from amazon.
