LeapReader™ “Ready, Set, Read & Write” Party

Leap Frog LeapReader Products

I was recently sent a huge kit of Leap Frog LeapReader Ready Set & Write Kit to host a party in my home. All opinions in this post are my own. Last week I tried to set up the party in my home with 4-5 moms. It has been crazy busy lately for everyone I know, though. I did have one friend that could bring both her 3 and 6 yr old over. Between her kids and mine, we had a 3, 4, 2-6 year olds and an 8 year old to try out the products.

First thing I noticed when opening the products was that it all seemed high quality and well made; sturdy for little kids! I love how versitile the LeapReader is. You can use it to just read the story, you can slide the pen along the words and have it read the story word by word, play games, learn to write letters and much more.

Leap Frog LeapReader Party

The kids were extremely excited to try the LeapReader. The kids all immediately went for the Monsters University book since they have recently seen the movie, it’s a great incentive for them to want to read the book. They all loved the story and the games in the MU book, however, none of them liked the 3D glasses. All of the kids said that the glasses were uncomfortable and hurt their faces. The next thing the kids played with were the Interactive Talking Words Factory Flash Cards. The two six year old girls loved the challenge of pairing up new words all by themselves. The three year old wasn’t all that interested in anything and the eight year old got bored quickly with the party. I think he’d do fine using the products by himself, but when with the large group of kids, he’d rather go play. The other book that I really loved in the set we got was the Get Ready for Kindergarten book; it has some great games and resources to get the kids ready to go to school.

I really think this system will help Monkey. She’s having a lot of issues with reading in school and was really loving the LeapReader so she could read books on her own without Mommy or Daddy pressuring her. She also really loved those flash cards and I’d love to get more of those for her. Overall I think the system would be great for a 4-7 year old to use to help get them into the reading spirit.

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a “baby “chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she’s still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She’s since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.
