We've been huge fans of Leapfrog pretty much since we first started buying toys for our kids. Over the years the Leapfrog toys have added up- and all are favorites of our kids. Both Ethan and Vivian have a My Pal Scout/Violet, they still fight over the Learn & Groove Musical Table, and for the past year they've been enjoying "reading" books to themselves with their Tag Junior reading system. So I was understandably very, very excited to get the Tag Reader and try it out!
The Tag reading system is designed for kids ages 4-8, and my kids are a bit younger than that, but Ethan's still been having a great time with it. Since he's been using the Tag Junior for a while, he's familiar with how the general idea of moving the reader over the page works. I like that, as he gets older, he'll be able to use more of the features of the system, such as using the reader to learn individual words, and playing the games that are a part of the books. I love to read my kids books, but I do sometimes need to get other things done, so it's nice to have this reader to read books to Ethan when I can't!

As with many other Leapfrog toys, these do require an internet connection for downloading the audio to the reader. This means that the reader can be customized with your child's name - and it means that you can track your child's play and learning progress online. Very cool!
So, if you're looking for a great, educational, fun toy for your child for the holidays, definitely take a look at all that Leapfrog has to offer. I'm going to be getting Ethan the Tag World Map for Christmas so that he can start learning more about the whole world!
