Do you love LeapFrog? So do we! Check out what’s new from LeapFrog this season and find out why my kids are hopping around with excitement.
I am THAT mother. The mean mother who had enough, cancelled cable and told my kids to go read a book instead. I was fed up with electronics and felt that my kids needed to have the childhood that I had – a childhood spent outdoors playing with their friends! Well, I was wrong – partially. My kids do need to be outside more and doing things that will enhance their brains, but I was wrong to think that I would be able to keep them away from the progressing world – nor should I want to. Cancelling t.v. service is all well and good and turned out to be a positive decision for our family – but what I found was that they still wanted to be engaged with electronics and they still needed some “down time” to play alone. So I decided that what I needed to do was find a few electronics they could use during these down times that would still be a good fit for our family – ones that would encourage learning and development while still being fun to play with.
My first experience from LeapFrog came when my daughter was just a baby and someone bought her a talking girl frog from LeapFrog. It was adorable, spoke different languages and played music. In a nutshell, we all loved it. I loved that she would coo and that her face would light up when it talked to her and she loved it because it was fun and engaging. Well guess what – my kids have gotten older, but times haven’t changed. LeapFrog is still offering toys and games that we both love. As my kids and technology have changed – we’ve found that LeapFrog has developed along with them.
It is for these reasons that I am super excited to let you in on the little secret (ok, so not really a secret) that I am now a part of LeapFrog’s new brand ambassador program! As part of this program, my family is being given the opportunity to test out what LeapFrog is bringing to the table this year and let you know what works – what is fun – and what products we think are worth buying and using.
So to start the program off we were sent a box including some pretty amazing products. Here is a video of the pure excitement that exploded in my household.
Now, after all of that paper flying and chaos – what was included in this box that we got to test out?
- LeapPad Platinum
- Word Whammer
As you can imagine, we are already diving into these products (fighting over them) and having fun playing with them.
