Many of you know that I also write as the Toys Guide at About.com, where I also complete a variety of toy reviews and create articles on more popular toy trends. I just finished writing up an extensive review of the popular LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer, a tablet for kids that includes educational software that encourages children to develop problem solving skills, while learning foundational academic skills for reading and writing in a game based format using either their finger or a stylus. I won’t bore you in two places with the same review, so head on over to the About.com Toys Site, to read my impressions, but I thought the information was appropriate to share with you here on ToyQueen.com as well since I’m more passionate on this site highlighting more educationally relevant products.
Here’s a preview post I wrote here on ToyQueen.com after getting my first look-see at the LeapPad learning system almost one year ago.
What types of LeapFrog toys have you invested in for your children in the past? Many parents have told me their children have learned many of their letters and letter sounds by playing with their toys. Do you have any learning stories to share from your family with their unique toys?
If you haven’t already, please Like the ToyQueen Facebook Page and the AboutToys Facebook Pages. You can also follow me on Twitter as @ToyQueen and @AboutToys. If any of your friends and family members are looking for unique toys, I’d love for you to share my Facebook pages with them. Gaining more readership allows me to continue to write unique content and run fun contests.
LeapFrog provided a free LeapPad to facilitate my review. The opinions are my own.
