LeapFrog Scribble and Write Review

LeapFrog have become known for creating educational toys for kids that make learning fun. If you're looking for something that'll help your child learn to write, and develop their alphabet skills, then the LeapFrog Scribble and Write is an extremely affordable option.

How Does The LeapFrog Scribble and Write Work?

The Scribble and Write is a simple console featuring a full alphabetical keyboard, a screen for writing the letters on, a stylus, speaker, and a few other simple controls. It's chunky enough to withstand typical child behavior, and the stylus is a good size for gripping with small hands.

Scout the puppy will help guide your child as they trace the lights on the screen to draw various shapes. As they progress, the child will then move onto both upper and lowercase letters as they learn to write. In total there are four learning modes that get more advanced as your child moves along.

In addition to writing skills, the Scribble and Write also helps to develop knowledge of the alphabet, pencil control and phonics skills.

As with other handheld educational devices from LeapFrog, parents also have the added benefit of being able to connect to the online LeapFrog Learning Path program to keep track of what their children are learning.

Should You Buy The LeapFrog Scribble and Write?

Although the manufacturer recommends this toy be given to children of at least three years of age, many parents have claimed that children as young as two have enjoyed writing letters on the device. However, there are small parts which could present a choking hazard, so bear this in mind.

This educational toy is especially useful if you have a child who isn't so keen to learn more about writing. With the LeapFrog Scribble and Write, it becomes fun! Many parents have reported their children wanting to play it for hours on end, not realizing just how much they are learning.

The addition of Scout the dog helps to keep children connected to what they're doing, and many kids just love him. This addition, and the simple instructions, mean that the LeapFrog Scribble and Write system is more fun than normal writing practice.

The LeapFrog Scribble and Write is, thankfully, very affordable. It has received wholly positive reviews from parents who are amazed at just how captivated their kids seem to be when using it. All in all, this is a solid educational toy for your child, one that should last a while, and that won't break the bank.

My Keepon from Wow! Stuff

The coolest gift this Christmas is a dancing robot that will rock out to the music that you play. That’s what you’ll get with My Keepon from Wow! Stuff.my-keepon-interactive-robot

The robot has a very small microphone located in the nose. Through that, it can pick up the music you listen to or whatever tapping, clapping or stomping sound you make. It’s very sensitive to noise and can understand the rhythm of the music. By picking up that rhythm, the robot can move in time with the music. Whatever the tempo of your music, the robot can keep up with it. Whether you listen to slow songs or heavy rock, your music won’t be too much for this robot to handle.

These impromptu performances will always be unique - no copycat presentations from your robot. Various sensors strategically placed under the skin will cause the robot to respond to actions such as tapping it with your finger or giving it a gentle squeeze. It will react by turning in the direction the touch was given from.

From the moment your child wakes My Keepon from Wow! Stuff is ready to play and makes sure they know about it by trying to get their attention. The Keepon sits on a strong and durable stand, which keep the mechanism of the toy safe. The yellow part of the Keepon is pliable and soft.

The toy communicates with your child through a series of non-verbal sounds such as robotic chirps, beeps, sounds and squeaks. Your child will find their new friend adorable as it shakes its head back and forth. What’s really cool about this interactive and fun toy is its ability to change moods just like a human can. One minute the toy is excited and thrilled, the next, it’s wondering what’s going on; brimming with curiosity at its surroundings. It even shows signs of sleepiness and can get annoyed so watch out!

This toy is by the same makers of Keepon Pro, which is a tool for helping kids with autism, so has a reputable technological background. This toy is about the size of two stacked up yellow tennis balls in height therefore won’t take up too much room in the home. The Keepon uses batteries or an adapter. If you do use batteries, you’ll have roughly enough power for the little guy to rock out to around a 100 songs depending on song length. Of course, if you prefer not to get batteries, then the robot can play for as long as you like using the adapter.

For a modern and fun gift buy the My Keepon from Wow! Stuff before they’re all gone to keep the little one in your life happy this Christmas.
