Gift Idea: Leapfrog Tag Reading System





Leapfrog Tag Reading System

Product Features

  • The Tag Reading System encourages children to learn to read and to love reading as words talk, pictures sing and stories live out loud!
  • The Tag library includes over 40 books and games based on favorite TV, movie and classic tales
  • Tag storybooks and learning activities help children build reading skills such as vocabulary, phonics and reading comprehension
  • The Tag Reader holds audio for up to 10 books at a time and is sized to fit small hands with a no-slip grip
  • Parents can connect the Tag Reader online to collect fun rewards their child has earned and to see their child's play

What I loved:

- it is educational and encourages reading

- it is easy for my daughter to use

- the books have characters she knows and loves in them (like Princess Tiana and Tinkerbell) and are bright and colourful and very kid-friendly

- it is easily portable and could be taken in the car and on trips

- it can be used with headphones so it really can be used anywhere

- there are tons of different activities to do in each book

- Olivia (age 4) really enjoys it and plays with it often

What I did not love:

- it takes batteries. I wish it was rechargeable.

- it requires an internet connection to download the stories

- the initial set up takes ages because you have to connect online, set up an account, download the story etc..

-the included book sucks and in order to really enjoy the Tag you need to purchase a different book right away

- the books are not as cheap as I would like them to be

- it claims to be for kids age 4-8 but my 7 & 8 year old sons have not been very interested in it at all. That could change if we purchased books more to their liking though.


Overall I am pleased with the Leapfrog Tag Reading System. I think it is a clever idea and would make a great gift for most younger children.

Thanks so much to Leapfrog Canada for sending me the Tag Reading System to review.
