LeapStart Go & Deluxe Activity Sets
LeapFrog has certainly earned its stripes over the years and the brand has developed a strong affinity with many of our parent testers. The new LeapStart Go pen only solidified the belief that LeapFrog continues to just get it right. This new offering is essentially an updated, sleeker version of the Leap Reader (also a Seal winner). With the Go kids can use the pen to read along with stories in the included sampler book, but as a bonus it also has a video component. You can hear audio but also watch videos on the actual pen! Certain parts of the pages in the included book, and the others in the line, link to viewable information. The footage varies, sometimes it will show an animated cartoon about learning to spell a word, other times it might feature a short about a planet or how a body part functions. Considering the vastness of LeapFrog’s library you can imagine the possibilities. Being rechargeable, and not a battery devouring device, was appreciated by parents. One important note for parents who have the Reader and have already invested in multiple activity books for it, those old books are not compatible with the LeapStart Go. That said, if you are new to the LeapStart world, you will.
