Updated on July 7, 2015

I am a mom of two beautiful girls (10 & 12). We love to read, play, cook, shop and have fun together. I love to share great products/toys.

Learning is top priority with LeapFrog toys. Help your child on the road to building life skills with these wonderful educational toys. Experiences during your child's first three years of life have deep and lasting impact, so start developing their brain now with educational toys.

Amazon, a premier leader in online shopping, allows you to read first-hand reviews of these products and more to help influence your decision-making. You will also find great prices and a vast selection. Shop from the convenience of home for these LeapFrog toys for babies and toddlers.

Leap Frog My Pal Scout / Violet

These soft, cuddly puppies connect to your computer so you can customize the music and personalize the learning - it'll say your child's name, favorite animal, color and food. Comes with five pre-loaded songs.  Press its paws to hear music and games.

Learning skills include feelings & emotions, first words, animals, early number sense and daily routines.

Leap Frog Learn & Groove Table

This is a must have for babies 6 months and up - a huge favorite amongst parents and kids alike.  This award-winning toy will engage you child and entertain with more than 40 learning songs, sparkling lights and lots to spin, slide, push, pull, open and close.

This table, and the Alphabet Pal, below, both would make great baby shower gifts!

Leap Frog Alphabet Pal

In my opinion, another must-have is this adorable Alphabet Pal.  It has flashing antennas and a funny giggle.  Four learning modes introduce letter names, letter sounds, colors and music.  Your child can pull its string to hear the ABC song.  Parents can connect to the online LeapFrog Learning Path for customized learning insights and ideas.  Mine (4 and almost-3 years old) STILL love theirs!

As mentioned above, this makes a great baby shower gift, or even for a first birthday.


Learn & Groove Alphabet Drum

A tap on the drum introduces baby to the English and Spanish alphabet.  Letters of the alphabet light up when baby taps the drum.  It also has a music play mode that lets babies explore and create music.

Helps develop gross motor skills with tapping, crawling and moving to the music.

Fridge Farm Magnetic Animal Set

Need to occupy your baby or toddler while you attempt to prepare a meal?  The Fridge Farm Magnetic Animal Set teaches your child matching skills and exercises the imagination.

Pair the front halves of farm animals with the back halves—forming five complete critters—or mix up the magnetic-backed pieces to create imaginary animals.  Every mix or match introduces animal names, sounds, fun facts and lively learning songs.  Can be used on the fridge or the floor or take it with you in the car or to the park. The pieces fit neatly in a compartment on the back, and it has a built-in handle that makes carrying easy.
