Something new to the Leap Frog family of educational toys is the Leap Frog Tag Junior. This is very similar to the Tag Reader but it’s more suited for children ages 2-4 years old.
For this review, I was sent a Tag Junior with 2 books to try out with Alex. The two books I chose for him were Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See? and Curious George Color Fun. Also, the Tag Junior game with a sample book called If I Were… .
As soon as Alex saw his new Tag Junior and books, he sat down and started using it right away. He loved reading the Curious George book over and over while finding the little songs that are on each page.
The first time he used the Tag Junior, he sat for almost an hour with it and his new books. Now, he’ll sit for at least 30 minutes (if not longer) and read through his books. The only issue he’s had is with the power button. There’s about a one or 2 second delay between pushing the power button and hearing the little sound that plays to let you know it’s on. Since Alex is impatient, he has a hard time waiting to hear that sound and instead will push the power button over and over again until I show him how it works.
As a mom, I really like the way the Tag Junior is made. The top of the Tag Junior fits perfectly in the palm of my son’s hand so he can be completely independent with his reading. The base of the Tag Junior is wide and round so he can easily select the words he’d like to read or the activity he would like to enjoy.
This system is perfect for fostering learning in toddlers. It helps with word recognition and learning things like shapes, colors, letters, and numbers. There are many activities in each book that offer different ways for toddlers to enjoy their books.
BUY IT: The Tag Junior can be purchased from Leap Frog for $34.99.
Leap Frog has offered one Tag Junior system and 2 books for one reader!
