With 2 preschool aged kids in our home, we try and turn everything into a learning experience. Whether it's cooking in the kitchen and measuring ingredients, going for nature walks and checking out bug or leaf specimens, or just reading a storybook, there are always opportunities for little ones to learn. And my littles are super curious about everything, it seems!
So when I got the opportunity to check out the new Read With Me Scout by LeapFrog, I jumped at the chance. My kids love their original Scout and Violet pals, so I knew they would love the addition of reading in the new toys.
Read With Me Scout is an adorable, vibrantly colored plush puppy who is huggable and truly interactive. He comes with 5 board books that he can "read" from. (I know...Only 4 are pictured here. Sophie fell asleep with one, and there was no getting her to loosen her grip without waking her!)
As Scout reads the storybooks, he even pauses and asks questions about the story. This is a wonderful way to build comprehension skills! It's so cute seeing Sophie and Xander talk back to Scout when he asks them different things!
Scout also features 5 interactive spots that respond to your touch. You can pet his back to answer questions; kiss his cheek and hear him say you're his best friend; press his left paw to hear songs; and press his right paw for more responses.
Xander and Sophie both absolutely love playing with Read With Me Scout. Xander especially! He is always grabbing a book and sitting down to read with his adorable plush pal. All you need to do is press the button on his collar that corresponds with the chosen book to begin reading, and then just tap his head to turn the page. Pretty cool, right?
Of course when the story is over, the fun doesn't end! Then it's time to snuggle, hug, and play! Xander loves the fact that Scout can sense hugs and high-fives, etc and responds accordingly.
Overall, we definitely love our Read With Me Scout! It is so much fun seeing my preschool aged kids read along in the storybooks and answer Scout when he talks to them. Another thing I love is the fact that if they get sleepy, Scout can go into Sleepy Time Mode. This mode tells relaxing stories and plays soothing lullabies.
I would definitely recommend Read With Me Scout to anyone looking for an awesome educational gift to give this year!
