Toy Review from LeapFrog

Count Along Cash RegisterA couple times a year LeapFrog and Folkmanis send me some of their new product for me to review. After my reviews, I give most of these things away in drawings or have my grandsons give them to their school or, like we will be doing with some of the items I'm telling you about today, to Toys for Tots. I'm very happy today to let you know about some new toys from LeapFrog and puppets from Folkmanis tomorrow.

Count Along Cash Register
Ages 2-5
From - LeapFrog

Favorite Features -
  • Encourages numbers, colors, money skills, counting skills, imagination, interactive play and role playing.
  • Children may interact with more than 50 phrases and fun songs
  • Includes cash register, "coins", "shopping card" and "food" for children to "buy".
  • Children will enjoy pushing the buttons as they play with this toy.
LeapFrog says; "With LeapFrog’s Count Along Register, little shoppers can ring up counting skills and pretend play fun with a 20-piece set which talks, sings and counts. Designed for two years and up, Count Along Register helps children explore counting, colors and running a store for the very first time through a spunky, singing register pal who comes to life with scanning beeps, a light up face and zesty lines. It’s aisles of imaginative role play with learning added to the cart!"

I think children will enjoy playing with the Count Along Cash Register - especially if they enjoy shopping and pretending! I am happy to see so many features built in which encourage learning, but with LeapFrog, I'd be surprised if it did not!

Favorite Features -
    Learn & Groove™ Musical Mat
  • Encourages learning numbers, colors, animals, instruments, moving, counting and having fun!
  • More than 50 phrases and songs with which children may learn, dance and play.
  • I like explore mode as it allows for open-ended play and gives children the opportunity to "explore" sounds, making music and having fun.
  • Colorful and fun graphics - children will love the animals!
LeapFrog says; "This jumbo-sized Learn & Groove Musical Mat from LeapFrog is a wonderful way for your active toddler to interact and create. LeapFrog's Learn & Groove Musical Mat is all about jumbo-sized educational fun as it teaches your child to dance, leap, laugh, count, and so much more.
