LeapFrog Party Goers Leaping With Excitement

LeapFrog Party Goers Leaping With Excitement

I recently had the great pleasure of hosting a LeapFrog Learn, Create, and Share Party with my mom's group and their kids.

The Learn, Create and Share party included great LeapFrog products including the LeapFrog Tag Reader with corresponding Interactive World Map and Learn to Read Series 1 book set.  The new LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet was also in the party kit.  The LeapPad was preloaded with Disney-Pixar Cars 2 Ultra eBook, Roly Poly Picnic game and Letter Factory video plus the included Art Studio, Story Studio and Pet Pad Apps.

It was like Christmas at our house when the LeapFrog party kit arrived.  I could not get the packages open fast enough.  Her eyes about popped out of her head.  I let her test drive the LeapPad (she calls it her iPad).  She picked up the LeapPad apps so quickly and was showing me how to use the LeapPad.

Bean received a Tag reader last year for Christmas and we use it on a regular basis.  Shhh, don't tell her but we have a Map already in the Christmas present stash, luckily the one that came with the party kit was a different one than we already have.  They are great learning tools.  My daughter recently started singing her days of the week and to my surprise she actually got them right (she learned them from the back of the Handy Manny Tag Reader book). 

We started the party off with with some color pages provided by LeapFrog and MomSelect.  This was a great way for the kids to start the fun while waiting for everyone to arrive.  Then we introduced the Tag Reader.  Many of the kids were already familiar with the reader but the World Map was a huge hit and the Learn to Read series was great for the younger guests.  The older kids enjoyed the fun Map Race Challenge.  We moved on to some fun games of Frog, Frog, Toad (otherwise known as Duck, Duck Goose) followed buy some crazy fun LeapFrog Limbo.  Next we brought out the big gun and hit of the party, the LeapFrog LeapPad.

The LeapPad explorer is a personalized learning table just for kids with a built-in camera and video recorder.  It offers a limitless learning and endless play through a library of 100+ cartridge games and activities with innovative creativity and reading apps.

Overall everyone at the party had a ton of fun.  I received many comments from the adult guests about how great LeapFrog products are and how wonderful it is that their children are having so much fun while learning. The kids, no surprise, had a blast at the Learn, Create, and Share Party.  The room was full of excited voices exclaiming "cool", "awesome", "wow", and "fun".  I might be over thirty but I am sure those are all still good things!

You can find out more about about all the great products mentioned above as well as many more by visiting the Leap Frog website, liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter
