LeapFrog My Pal Scout
My Pal Scout (and, later, the purple My Pal Violet) is probably the most recognizable of all of the LeapFrog toys (out there, not just on this list), so we had to start with it. He’s the classic LeapFrog green, which is the brand’s signature color throughout its toys.
Scout plays over 30 songs that teach words, counting, and more. There are daytime and nighttime activities too. Plus, you can teach My Pal Scout your child’s name for personalized learning.
LeapFrog Learn and Groove Musical Table
This LeapFrog Learn and Groove Musical Table is the perfect toy for your little one who is just learning to stand and who loves moving and grooving. It plays over 70 songs about numbers, colors, and more.
What’s really great (for parents who don’t have much space in the playroom, especially), the legs fold in, so you can store the table (or even just play with it) as just the toy. That makes it great for sitting on the floor or in the car.
LeapFrog LeapPad Academy Kids’ Learning Tablet
The LeapFrog LeapPad Academy Kids’ Learning Tablet is a great first tablet for kids. It’s intended for kids ages 3 to 8 and comes with a really great protector on the outside (because those kids are known to bounce and drop things, accidentally).
It comes with 20 educational apps that are pre-loaded. Parents can download more as well.
Plus, the purchase (at least, if you buy this LeapFrog toy on Amazon, I can’t assure it anywhere else), there’s a free three-month trial of LeapFrog Academy (a subscription service with access to over 2,000 educational games and programs).
LeapFrog LeapReader System Learn-to-Read 10 Book Mega Pack
If your kids are learning to read, or showing an interest in learning to read, this LeapFrog LeapReader System Learn-to-Read 10 Book Mega Pack is a great way to foster that.
Kids will use the pen to read along with the books, which feature short vowels, sight words, and simple words. They can read at their own pace and go back over words to really learn them.
LeapFrog On-The-Go Story Pal
This LeapFrog On-The-Go Story Pal is perfect for travel because it’s pre-loaded with stories that can be read to your kids. You can even record yourself reading a story on it.
Since this is just a small device, without any books or anything to play with, so in addition to being entertaining (which isn’t the goal of any of these educational toys), it encourages focus and listening comprehension.
LeapFrog Learn & Groove Shakin’ Colors Maracas
If your child loves music and dancing, these LeapFrog Learn & Groove Shakin’ Colors Maracas are a good gift. These are intended for kids as young as 6 months old, so this is a great way to get little ones moving.
There are three modes: colors, numbers, and music. And, two languages (English and Spanish) so it’s really educational — much more so than you would expect from some maracas.
LeapFrog Tumbling Blocks Fire Truck
This LeapFrog Tumbling Blocks Fire Truck (which is featured in our main photo above) is a great toy. It’s “driven” by Scout and Violet, which your kids will love if they have the My Pal toys.
It comes with five blocks that tumble down the ladder of the fire truck, which is a good way to work on fine motor skills. Those blocks have letters and words on them, so when you stick them in the driver’s seat, your child will hear the names and sounds of animals and objects.
Plus, of course, your kids can just use their imagination with this and play with it as a regular fire truck as well.
LeapFrog Scoop and Learn Ice Cream Cart
Sure, this LeapFrog Scoop and Learn Ice Cream Cart looks like it’s just for imaginative play, but it’s more than that. It’s educational too (or it wouldn’t be on this list).
As children scoop ice cream, they’ll learn colors. As they’re pumping syrup, they’ll practice counting. There’s also play money, which kids can count, and helps them understand the concept of paying for things.
LeapFrog Phonics Fun Animal Bus
There’s so much to learn thanks to this LeapFrog Phonics Fun Animal Bus. On the side are all of the letters of the alphabet. If you set the bus to letter mode, your kids will hear the letter’s name when the letter is pushed. In other modes, there are “personalities” for the letters, which helps them associate and learn letters.
There’s a game to play to help the passengers off the bus, plus two songs that the bus plays (in music mode).
LeapFrog Smart Sizzlin’ BBQ Grill
Just like the ice cream cart (up a little higher in this list), this LeapFrog Smart Sizzlin’ BBQ Grill is about more than just imaginative play. It’s educational too.
The skewer turns to “cook” the food and kids can count from 1 to 10 with each turn. The dials to turn up the grill’s heat goes to 10 as well. As the grill heats up, there’s a sizzle sound that gets louder so kids really learn that concept. Kids can learn about food and colors with this toy as well.
In additional to the grill, it comes with nine food pieces and seven play accessories, which store easily in the grill itself.
LeapFrog Count-Along Basket and Scanner
If your kid comes grocery shopping with you (and, let’s face it, they’ll usually be there with you), this LeapFrog Count-Along Basket and Scanner is a really fun toy for them because they’re used to seeing it.
This toy folds into a basket (like you would carry at the store) or you can use it as more of a collapsible shopping cart (which will make more sense to your kids if you live in a city where you bring your groceries home in this sort of cart).
It comes with an interactive scanner and eight play foods that are recognized when they’re scanned. It also comes with shopping lists that your kids can use to shop (aka play) to learn shapes, numbers, food names, and more.
