LeapFrog's LeapStart Interactive Learning Books

LeapStart Learning System
I'm always looking for age appropriate learning tools for my twins as they continue to discover and grow.

As a LeapFrog Mom Squad member, we recently tested out their latest learning solution, the new LeapStart ($39.95), an all-in-one interactive early learning system for Preschool through 1st grade, jam packed with key school and life skills for curious 2-7-year-olds.

The LeapStart works with a library of replayable activity books (not games) that are sold separately for $12.99 each. The device comes with a sampler book though to get you started. Each book focuses on different skills from reading and writing to math, coding and STEM and more. Every book has the proper age range recommendation listed, which is super helpful.

Once a parent registers the device, you then need to download the compatible audio for the activity book, but it's pretty easy to do so. The book's binding then gets inserted into the LeapStart holder, much like an old school Trapper Keeper, but without the scary claws.


A pen-shaped stylus is connected to the device and encourages fine motor skills and supports proper writing grip. With this pointer children then tap to discover more within the book and solve the questions being asked in the different activities. Kids can tap any page or image to activate audio responses and play tasks designed to keep them engaged and coming back for more.

My Take: This is the perfect aged tool for my preschool boys right now as they start to trace, learn their numbers and practice letter recognition. I also like that while it incorporates technology, it's not another screen, but more like an interactive book. In fact, it needs a book to make it work. Unlike a delicate screen that I have to make sure they don't drop or break, the LeapStart is kid-tough. My twins have even stood on it and all was well, although of course I don't recommend doing that.


The Twins Take: They like it, especially the activities that incorporate music and songs, which most do. Because it folds like a laptop, they call it their computer. The other day while I was working on my laptop, Logan went and got his LeapStart. I looked over to see him studiously tapping away alongside me as I typed. It was too cute.

Your Take: Enter below to win your own LeapStart learning system and try it out with your kiddos! :)
