The LeapFrog Little Touch LeapPad – Is This a Great Educational Toy for the Little Ones?

March 10th, 2021

With the LeapFrog Little Touch LeapPad, young hands can add a touch of life to the stories their parents share. It brings books to life in a way that is approachable and stimulating for babies and toddlers. Leapfrog understands that the demands of the hectic modern world mean that parents can sometimes lack the time or energy to create original and unique learning activities every single story time. This is where the LeapPad excels.

Its wide range of colorful, interactive illustrated books brings out children’s excitement and learning. Adults will find story time as fun as children, with a system that supports their reading creatively and crucially. As adults read to children, they can pause and encourage them to touch any of the many attractive pictures to hear music, sounds or words spoken in response. Each book offers up to one hundred and fifty multi-level learning activities, meaning that the book is sure to progress with the children from the age of six months to as old as thirty-six months. The same books may be enjoyed for almost three years making the LeapFrog Little Touch LeapPad a valuable investment to save space in wallets as well as bookcases.

In the “Music and Soundscapes” setting, early brain development is stimulated by the use of sounds, rhythms and music whenever babies touch the eye-catching pictures featured on every page. When babies are ready, they can move on to “Word Play,” the next level up. This setting accelerates the child’s language skills and develops vocabulary early on in life. Pressing the pictures produces spoken or sung descriptive phrases that strengthen word-object associations. For example, when the child touches a red circle, a pleasant voice will announce: “a red circle.” To reinforce word-object associations, every page features games and activities that provide a fun challenge to children to apply their knowledge. For example, the child might be prompted to: “find the yellow fish.” Finally, the child will progress to the level called” “Laugh and Learn.” This setting has educational, amusing rhymes along with more advanced activities. Every book also includes activity cards that can be used by toddlers for independent learning.

The LeapFrog Little Touch LeapPad is a truly multisensory, interactive and fun toy to accompany young children on their journeys through their early years as they learn and develop new skills and abilities. I must say this is truly a great educational toy. You will need four AA batteries to operate the Leapfrog Touch.
