My daughter received the Leapfrog Lap Pup for her 1st birthday, as she LOVES buttons and is always trying to play with Mummy's laptop this gift was perfect.
The Lap Pup has a very friendly happy face which lights up as during play. Opening and closes the lid initiates a game of peek-a -boo which my daughter loves. The on off button is quite small and we tend to leave it on so our little one can activate the toy herself whenever she chooses- she knows then she simply has to open the lid in order to play.
Along the bottom of the Lap Pup is a rattling spinner and there are 5 buttons, these are a good size and my daughter finds them very easy to press. Each button is a different colour and they have either symbols or numbers on them designed to help teach colours, numbers and shapes. There is also a moveable bone on slider on the right hand side and you are asked - "Can you move my bone up to my paw?" and once completed "Thank You". My daughter loves to do this.
The songs and sound effects are brilliant and even after lots of play they are not in the least bit irritating unlike some toys.
My daughter absolutely loves her Lap Pup and will quite happily sit for quite some time pressing buttons and moving his bone up to his paw.
My daughter finds it very easy to pick up and move her Lap Pup as although it is sturdy it is still fairly lightweight. The Lap Pup is extremely well designed and well made and can easily stand up to the rough play of small children, my daughter has dropped it quite a few times and there is not a single mark.
I cannot recommend the Leapfrog Lap Pup highly enough it is a great toy, that my daughter loves to play with and there is so much for her to do.
The Lap Pup is suitable from 6 months to 2 years. It is available in both purple and green and is widely available from shops and online costing around £10.
