Recently, I was introduced to a few new LeapFrog products that would make wonderful gifts this Holiday season. Or today. Why wait? I'm totally guilty of doing special things for the kiddos, just because. Any day is a great day to encourage learning, after all!
Sophie and Xander both flocked to this fun, culinary toy, and they have had an absolute blast cooking up some awfully smart creations in their Number Lovin' Oven. This toy keeps them laughing and engaged, but more importantly, it keeps their budding math skills sharp.
Scout's Build & Discover Tool set is pretty cool because kids can practice color matching, counting, and measuring skills. This "house" can be taken apart and put back together using color-coded bolts. The color of the bolt coordinates with the color of the proper tool, so kids won't end up frustrated. It's a great way for younger kids to not only learn basic mathematical skills, it also helps hone fine motor skills!
The Epic is designed for kids from the ages of 3-9, and it literally grows with your child. Have a few kids at different ages and stages? No worries! The LeapFrog Epic allows for 3 different profiles to be created. Each profile is fully customizable to each child's needs, right down to the homescreen that THEY get to design. The homescreen even detects whether it's day or night, and displays accordingly. Pretty cool, right?
Sophie and Xander both declare that the LeapFrog Epic is the BEST TABLET EVER! (And that's saying a lot, coming from my tech-savvy kids!)
They both really enjoy the preinstalled apps, and have had a lot of fun learning over 2600+ new skills. Sophie finds it especially neat that she can check our local weather, in real time.
Aside from the LeapFrog created content, parents can also turn the Epic into a kid-safe internet experience that can help with homeschool, project research, and more! The parental controls enable you to pick and choose what you want your kids to be allowed to view with no worries of anything inappropriate popping up. Your kids can only access the sites YOU choose, and this gives me major peace of mind as a mom!
