The new #LeapStart from #LeapFrog is a great tool for teaching everything from reading, writing and STEM, to emotional, social and life skills. And it's all tailored to kids ages 2-7! #LeapAhead #LeapFrogMomSquad

There’s nothing I love more than hearing my son having fun, while personally knowing he’s learning simultaneously.  This time it’s the new LeapStart from LeapFrog that has his brain gears on the go.  Yeap, LeapFrog is at it again with their creative and innovative learning and educational tools for kids.

The newest addition, LeapStart, is an all-in-one interactive early learning system for kids ages 2-7, that covers a variety of topics, including shapes, colors, math, the alphabet, reading, writing, STEM, and even geography and space science.  But what I think makes LeapStart extra special is that not only does it touch on school subjects, but it also helps develop your child’s social, emotional and life skills.  That’s not something a lot of other learning and educational toys can teach, and it’s important that our children start learning such skills early on.

So, you know what it teaches, but how does LeapStart work?  Well, LeapStart systems are a large electronic book-like device that you open, place a LeapStart Activity Book in the center, and use a stylus pen to interact with the Activity Book.

Each Activity Book is packed full of 30+ fun games and challenges.  There are 16 books in the LeapStart collection, 4 for each educational level, ranging between Preschool, Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade.  On every page there’s a new type of interaction in which your child uses the stylus pen to interact with the book and in return the book talks and sings aloud, telling your child what to do.

Whether your child is tracing numbers, learning compound words, or exploring outer space, they’re having fun all at the same time while using their LeapStart interactive system.

My son loves “playing” with his LeapStart, but he doesn’t realize he’s learning at the same time.  Shhh – if you don’t tell, I won’t tell.  One of the things I like about the LeapStart system is how it prompts him to start over or try again when he makes an error.  It doesn’t alert him in a negative manner that he was wrong or did something incorrectly, but just asks him to try again.  The positive reinforcement, practice and repetition is the perfect combination for successful learning.

To take learning a step further, LeapStart is available in 2 different systems, LeapStart Jr. and LeapStart Sr., each of which is designed with different ages, skills, and educational levels in mind.  Review the details of each one to determine which system best fits your child’s needs.  For reference, my son has the LeapStart Sr.
