I am still amazed at how God blesses our family in so many ways, including through this little ol’ blog of mine. I recently shared about how grateful I am for all my blog partners, especially those featured for the month of July. One of them, LeapFrog Philippines (under Ban Kee Toys), gave us several LeapFrog products for review, through the kind help of Absolutely Mommy.
Thank you, LeapFrog Philippines! Thank you, Ban Kee Toys!
Here is my review of three of the LeapFrog products given to us, all of which are ideal for toddlers like Anne:
LeapFrog Mobile Medical Kit
Of all the three “for baby” LeapFrog toys we got, this is probably the most played with so far. The LeapFrog Mobile Medical Kit comes with four check-up tools, i.e. a stethoscope, an otoscope (for checking the ears!), a thermometer and a syringe. All the tools fit into the ambulance, so it’s easy for kids to bring the kit everywhere, “in case of emergencies”!
The Kit is recommended for kids ages 2 years up, but our 1.3 year old also enjoys playing with it, and so does her Ate/Big Sister, as you can see in these photos!
When you press the siren on the ambulance, you can hear fun phrases that can help teach your little ones about health and hygiene, plus the ever popular nursery rhyme, “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” — this is especially a hit with Anne! Every time she hears it, she starts touching her head and toes (we’re still working on the other body parts! )
Rysse, who just turned 5, super enjoys playing with the Kit, too, especially since she was recently given a Doc McStuffins costume! As with many blessings that have come our family’s way, God really has perfect timing!
The thing I like most about the LeapFrog Mobile Medical Kit? You don’t have to turn it “on” to have fun — the ambulance and tools themselves already provide lots of opportunity for pretend play!
LeapFrog Sing & Play Farm
The LeapFrog Sing & Play Farm is recommended for children ages 6 to 36 months — but that didn’t stop ALL three kids (ages 7 going on 8, 5 and 1+) from playing with it the first time we got it!
The Farm has 5 interactive play areas and features 13 different farm animals. Children can turn keys, flip switches and do other activities that can help improve their fine motor skills.
When the Farm is switched on, it has over 50 audio responses, which can help you teach your child animal names and sounds, colors, rhythm, melodies and more. Of course, the classic animal-themed nursery rhymes like “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” and “Itsy Bitsy Spider” provide an opportunity for sing-and-dance and finger play fun for your kid as well!
Our girls love playing with each other!
Again, like the Mobile Medical Kit, what I like about the LeapFrog Sing & Play Farm is that kids can play with it even when it is switched off.
LeapFrog Roll & Go Rocking Horse
Like the Sing & Play Farm, the LeapFrog Roll & Go Rocking Horse is recommended for children ages 6 to 36 months. When it’s switched on, your child can press the saddle to make it light up and to hear different sounds and phrases.
If you hit the horse lightly, it will rock and “sing” songs, among other things. You can also push the horse to make it roll, and encourage your child to chase after it. This would be perfect especially if your little one has just started crawling — great gross motor skills practice!
However, since Anne is already a fast
runner walker, she isn’t so interested in playing with the Rocking Horse, so I just might keep it in storage for if and when we have another baby! (Or, maybe I should just do a giveaway here on the blog! What do you think? I’ve thrown away the box though! Oops!)
So there you have it, folks! Stay tuned for my next LeapFrog review — coming soon this August!
