*I received free LeapFrog products in order to host the LeapFrog sponsored MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own.”
One of the best “jobs” I have as a blogger is having the chance to review products from awesome companies and share my reviews with you all! I was recently given a chance to host a “Ready, Set, Read & Write” Party using the LeapReader from LeapFrog.
LeapReader ™ is the premiere learn-to-read-and-write system that helps your child learn to read and write by sounding out words and guiding letter strokes interactively.* LeapReader engages kids in imaginative stories with lively character voices while building vocabulary skills and growing reading comprehension skills. Interactive handwriting guidance helps children learn to write stroke-by-stroke on mess-free, no ink LeapFrog ®Learning Paper.* Plus LeapReader helps develop listening comprehension skills on-the-go with a growing library of 100+ audio books and more featuring classic and popular children’s books that encourage a love of reading. Sampler book included . All other books, games, audio books and handwriting workbooks are sold separately. *Features available in select books only.
I had originally planned to do the party in my daughter’s Pre-K class but quickly gave up on that notion after I realized what a nightmare it would be with 20 kids! I called my daughter’s former sitter and she was more than happy to help host the party. We had (3) 4-year-olds and (1) 2-year-old there to get the party started! Here’s a run down of what was included for me hosting a MommyParty Sponsored by LeapFrog:
- 2 LeapReaders
- LeapReders books including: learn to write letters with Mr. Pencil writing notebook, talking words factory writing workbook, Monsters University 3D book (16 pairs of 3D glasses included), get ready for kindergarten book, talking words factory flash cards and 2 leapreader sampler books.
The LeapReader solution includes 3 essential experiences:
- Learn to read: sounds out words, reads sentences and lets kids play games and puzzles
- Learn to write: gives children interactive guidance as they practice writing letters & numbers
- Learn through listening: audio books, learning sounds & trivia help build comprehension skills and vocabulary
The kids enjoyed using it and the little one just loved wearing the 3D glasses…LOL! It was hard for them to keep the glasses on so we just chucked those to the side after a while and after I helped them get set up and explained how it worked they were off and learning.
The LeapReader is geared for ages 4-8 and is perfect for traveling and does not require batteries. It plugs into the computer or a USB to charge and I’ve had the LeapReader for several weeks and I’ve only recharged it once. It retails for $49 (starter system) and there are so many add-ons that can grow as your child’s learning level grows.
I’ll be adding more books to our system as Christmas gifts and see this being a “toy” that my daughter will continue to enjoy for many years to come!
