*UPDATED* Product Review & Giveaway! Leapfrog TAG


We were so lucky to get Leapfrog's TAG Touch Learning System to try out! Chatterbox is just starting to get into electronic toys so the timing was perfect. The TAG is actually a "pen" that a child can run over the words of a book with and have the story read to them. It's a great idea that encourages kids to learn to read. The TAG System comes with a storybook and there is a whole library of additional stories that you can purchase that work with the system. In addition to that, the system connects to the Leapfrog Learning Path that connects the TAG reader to your computer and allows you to track your child's learning progress.

The manufacturer's recommended age for the TAG System is 4 - 8 years old. Chatterbox just turned 4 last week and I will say that it's a bit difficult for her a child her age to patiently run the pen over each word to sound it out. But! With the press of a button, the pen can also read the entire story to her! She loooooves this feature and enjoys following along while turning the pages of the book. The other neat thing that we discovered is that there are hidden surprises throughout each story where the pictures will talk or sing if you touch them with the pen. Both girls get a kick out of that. We also discovered that this is a GREAT toy for the car that is both entertaining and educational. The only downside is that Giggles wants to hold the pen too and, of course, they end up squabbling over it as usual, but what's new?

The TAG Touch Learning System retails for $49.95 - a tad pricey, but is good for hours and hours of reading fun, especially as your child grows and is able to use the pen to help him "read."

Sound like something your kid would love?
We are psyched to be giving away a TAG Touch Learning System to one lucky MamaLaw reader! Leave us a comment by midnight on Tuesday, Sept. 1 to enter the contest. The winner will be announced on 9/2. Don't miss your chance!!

*By the way - product reviews are entirely unpaid (but for the free samples) and voluntary. Just want to make that clear!*
