    Editorial Review

    This talking book comes with an interactive "magic pen" that works like a hand-held computer mouse pointer. Children can opt to turn the paper pages and listen to the story read with different voices for each character. Or they can interrupt the read-aloud session to play with the magic pen (permanently attached with a wire). They can point the pen tip to any word on a page and hear it pronounced, or touch a picture and hear a sound effect (such as "Strike one!" for the baseball bat). Very similar to the popular Living Books computer games, this 10-by-11-inch book is more portable than a home computer. Stories in this set include Lil's Loose Tooth, Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever, and Winnie the Pooh in A Sweet Good Morning. The set also includes a paper piano keyboard and map and human anatomy games.--Gail Hudson ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not as great as we thought it'd be...
    I got this for my son when he was about 4, and it was a great learning tool before it started falling apart. The quality of it was terrible, and it didn't last more than a year after normal wear and tear. This product was definitely a disappointment, especially after spending a lot of money on books and cartridges shortly before it bit the dust.

    2-0 out of 5 stars fun for all ages
    I bought a leap frog for my son when he was 4 and he loved it. He liked the pictures and sounds. It is also great for older kids, the leap frog book that came with his had activities for all ages. It is very educational and a great item to take on trips in the car.

    2-0 out of 5 stars great for my preschooler as well as older childern
    I purchased a leappad for my 3 1/2 year old about a 1 1/2 years ago for christmas and it was a hit!! She loved the noises it made and she could write with the pen. The book that comes with the system is broken up into different age groups so the first book didn't have much she could do as for learning, but my older children (then 9 & 11) found a few pages that interested them as well. We soon purchased a couple of addition books that were age appropriate for my daughter and she began to learn numbers, letters and shapes. My sons even got a book to help them in the areas such as bones. My daughter turned 5 yesterday and she still carries her leappad where ever we go. She has moved up to learning sounds and sight words and hasn't even started kindergarden yet. She loves the games and the interaction since it will tell you (or beep/buzz you)when you have made a wrong answer. This product allows my husband & I, as well as other family members, to sit down and spend time with my daughter learning and ITS FUN for us all!! She can even entertain herself when we are unable to sit with her because of how user friendly it is.

    We have had NO problems with our leappad and believe me it has been around and used.

    I highly recommend it for a child that is eager to learn new things. If I had to find a fault with it, it would be that due to so many different books available, we sometimes misplace the cartridges. I have ordered her a backpack to keep them all together to solve this problem.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Beware Of Leap Frog Products
    We are a family of 5. Our 3 children are 6, 3 1/2, and 2. You can imagine how many wonderful Leap Frog products we have in our household. We have a lot. We want to provide our children with a great educational start in life and what better way to do it than with these wonderful Leap Pad products right? Give me a break. Educationally they are great. Durable you ask, no way. Leap Frog only warrants their products for 3 months. We had 2 LeapPads. One still works great, we've had it for almost 4 years. The newer one we bought for our 3 year old stopped working in 4 months. It wasn't product misuse, because my son was only allowed to look at it with an adult. We only used it about 3 or 4 times a month, that's about 12-16 total uses, before the right side of the LeapPad stopped working. Several emails to Leap Frog resulted with no reply from them. They make these products but only warrant them for 3 months. Now I know why. Our Explorer globe flopped out after only 6 months. I will admit that the Leap Frog preschool toys we own have held up great, especially with all the banging around that they get, but their expensive products like LeapPad, Explorer Globe and Leapster have not. I'd look into buying educational products from a company who is willing to stand behind them and has the necessary means to make repair work on expensive products that no longer work. Leap Frog is a company I will no longer spend any more of my hard earned money on.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic even for age 3
    My three-year-old received this leappad for his birthday, which he wanted very badly, and just cannot put it down. He carries it with him throughout the day and it's the first thing he looks for when he gets up in the morning. He saw it at toysrus and just absolutely loved it so he was very excited to get one of his own. He loves learning his abc's and numbers, and loves it when his favorite characters talk back to him. This is such a great tool - if you're trying to decide between this one and the Fisher price one, go for this one. The gal at toys rus said that the fisher price one is just for preschoolers whereas the leappad will grow with the child until age 8. Not bad! ... Read more

    Wonderful learning game!
    This game was bought for my 3 year old daughter. She/we have so much fun with it! It promotes turn taking, matching, sorting, problem solving and fine motor skills! If your looking for a great game that you can also use as an educational tool, this ones for you :)

    Every child should have this game
    This is a great game for a wide range of ages. There are a variety of ways to play from simply emptying the jar and putting back the pieces to matching the shapes, in addition to using it as a memory game or first to match all wins game. The game is very durable and lots of fun

    Fun and educational for your toddler
    Our son received this game for his 4th birthday and he LOVES it! He is always asking someone to play it with him and he has quickly learned the rules for the easier level of play (put all the cream cookie halves in the cookie jar, deal the plain halves, and taking turns in succession to try and pick the cream halves' shapes that match the plain ones). The first one to match all their cookie halves wins. This simple game has taught him how to take turns, rules, and shape identification. He never has a problem with losing a game, but that's probably because he's eager to play another round.

    What I also like about this "game" is that even a younger child can play with it. Just to find two matching shapes and put them together will keep a young toddler occupied.

    We certainly recommend this fun, durable, educational and inexpensive toy to anyone looking for a gift for that 2-5 year old.

    This is great!
    I have to say that this game is wonderful for my 2 and a half year old. She practiced her shapes and overall just a fun game to sit down and play with a child. and for the price you cant beat it. I would definitley recommend any parent out there with toddlers to purchase it.

    Even for 2 year olds
    My daughter received this is a gift for Christmas at the age of 2. She loved it!! It helped her learn all the shapes and now a year later we still have all the pieces and play it as a game of who can put the pieces together the fastest. I think this toy is so simple but great and has lasted a long time for us. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Product Addition
    My little whipper-snappers loved and adored this piece of work. They sang right along to every word and began reading as a result of the LeapPad. Although I was annoyed a bit with my kids singing, they are 2 1/2 and 3 1/2, respectively, contrary to what other reviewer's wives may have thought, my wife thought the singing was A-OK. She should really know good singing because she was in a choral group that toured universe-wide and was better renowned then some choral groups that some reviewer's wives may have been involved with. Anyhow, the kids really picked up reading much faster with this edition because of the music and all. Given the success that my kids have had with it, can you really afford not to buy this product and every other related product?

    5-0 out of 5 stars They should do more like this
    My son loves this book, and the music pages that come with the "default" Leap Pad book. I wish there were more music books in the collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a favorite at our house!
    My 2 1/2 year old got the leap pad for Christmas. In an effort to find books that were more his level I picked this one up for him.

    This is a great book for the leap pad. In fact it is one of the best ones we have seen so far. (We haven't used very many though.)

    The songs are classics. The instruments you can play the song with change from page to page, so you might have an accordian on one page and a violin on the next. The idea that you can learn the song line by line is neat as well as clicking on the individual words to learn each word. My son has enjoyed clicking on the seperate notes to play his own music.

    This is a fun book. Enjoy!

    Okay..
    I love the idea of having music to sing-along to. I like the option of music only so we can sing along. However, some of the singers are...um...well, my daughter makes a funny face and starts laughing. The voices sound weird. She does enjoy hitting the pictures to make it talk...starts to sound like a rap...

    This book was a disappointment. The idea is awesome, but the tunes are a little off beat-slow. We have completely enjoyed other Leap Frog books, but this book was missing zip. The pages are ripping off the spiral part. We still look forward to trying other books! ... Read more

    Bright froggy green and sky blue, this lightweight butwell-stitched backpack is made just for carrying a LeapPad around in. There'sa special pouch with extra padding for the LeapPad, another that willhold up to four LeapPad books, and little net pouches for four LeapPadcartridges. Velcro fasteners make it easy for a child to secure theflap, which is emblazoned with the leapy frog himself. There areadjustable shoulder straps padded for comfort and a handle forbriefcase-style carrying. The shiny material is surface washable andresistant to stains. --M. Sullivan ... Read more

    Leap to Order
    For the price this is a great accessory for your LeapPad! My son gets twice the number of cartridges and books it it with plenty of room to spare. We even have some ziplocks with extras that can fit in no problem. The padded straps are easy on the shoulders and everything is neat and safely transported from grams house to friends to the doctor's office and everywhere in between. If you travel with your little one and their pad this is a great help.

    Oh and big deal about the color difference. IF that's such a concern that it warrants a trip back to the store you have WAY too much time on your hands. My advice: use that extra time to read with your child! Life is too short and childhood too precious.

    The price is great and IT WORKS just as it should and more. Another great Amazon offering.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Get the LeapPad Storage System instead
    Go to Walmart.com. They have a LeapPad Storage System, which holds 12 cartridges and books, for $20. It has a handle so it's just as easy for kids to lug around. And, in my opinion, is much more attractive and practical than a backpack. A much better deal.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Perfect accessory
    Just wanted to let everyone know that if your child has the leapfrog, this is a perfect addition. My son receieved the frog for x-mas, and I could not find a case anywhere. The books and tapes were everywhere, know they are all together, and he thinks it is cool to have a little backpack. Plus as an added bonus, the green and blue, are the same colors as the leapfrog, so we also coordinated.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A great way to store your Leappad
    I actually received this as a "bonus" when I bought my Leap Pad from my local retailer.

    This is an excellent solution to the question "where do you store your Leap Pad, cartridges and books so they don't get damanged".

    I have found that my 4 year old has no problem opening and closing the backpack, getting the books and cartridges out (and more importantly putting them away!)but once everything is packed up she does find it a little awkward to put on her back herself and finds it a little heavy on her back. She prefers to carry it by her side.

    Perfect size when you are starting your Leap Pad collection.

    This item does not come as shown. It does not match the colors of the leappad. I am returning it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to your childs leap pad Math library
    This one is more challenging than the Counting on Leap book or the even more simple Tad goes Shopping. Leap has to follow a number of clues and visit everything from a team at the park, to the junkyard to finally find his Birthday Present. There is even a maze he has to go through :-) So its a very nice activity book for a preschooler. I am personally using it for a toddler, so this book is not too useful to me yet, but my friends kids3 and up love it.

    A little tough for younger kids
    Like others have said, the main object of this book is to find the hidden clues to unlock the safe at the end with the birthday present inside. Some of the clues are really tough for the younger kids. I would say that is book is more appropriate for kids in first grade and up. Finding the clues is really easy if you can figure out the secret (the little bug, Eddison, tells you exactly where to look for the clue on each page) plus the clues are given in order on the page with the safe. Like I said, it is a bit complicated for a child in pre-school or possibly Kindergarten, but it is educational.

    Tasks dont make sense
    This leap pad book requires kids to find a secret unlabeled spot on the page to get a clue which is just a number they are told on each page. At the end they have to press the numbers in sequence to unlock a safe holding a birthday gift. Both having to press "who knows where" on the page to be told a number, and to then have to remember them all, seems terribly strange. My daughter doesn't bother with any of it. I do not recommend this book at all.

    Great Fun...with one reservation
    I'm a big fan of the Leap Pad products - and my son loves every Leap Pad book we've bought so far, including this one. We have great fun playing the games on each and every page. However, neither he nor I have been able to solve the big master surprise - and I've heard from severl friends (one who actually IS a rocket scientist) and they haven't been able to reveal all of the clues either. So while the book as a whole is still fun and educational, the missing ultimate resolution is a bit frustrating.

    Excellent.
    This is an excellent Leap Pad Book. It's a step above Leap Goes Shopping. However, it is easy enough that my three your old can do it with a little bit of help now and then.

    There are clues and they build until you have the answers you need. Each page has little games. Just like other Leap Pad books, when you touch the 'pen' to other pictures on the page you get neat sounds, music, games, etc.

    I think the Leap Pad is one of the neatest items available right now. It is better than sitting your child in front of TV and entertains my kid, at least, for an hour at time.

    Enjoy. ... Read more
