This is the new type 'My First LeapPad' platform, which first came out in 2007. It is shaped like a school bus and available in red, pink or yellow colours, although, I must say, I've never seen the yellow one in the shops, only on eBay. Unlike the old-type First LeapPad, this toy can be used by itself, without any activity books, as it comes with some built-in activities. This review is about the LeapPad platform only, without the use of the LeapPad books. Used with a book, I would have given this product a higher rating, but the platform itself is not much to shout about. This toy has a carry handle, which is always a good idea, but I have to mention that ... Read the complete review

At first glance, I wondered if I was going to have more fun with this than my son. At the time we bought it for him, he has just turned 3. Now, he's 4 and still using it. The LeapPad is a very clever toy which helps kids to learn at the same time as having fun. If you look closely at the picture , you can see it has the alphabet laid out in the middle of the pad. Over this, you place a LeapFrog booklet which is specifically designed to fit over the LeapPad. Then simply turn it on and follow the instructions. (The booklet hooks on to the two yellow clips just above the alphabet in the diagram). Battery-operated, the instructions are vocal as opposed ... Read the complete review

The Leapfrog ABC Bus features a touch sensitive pad and a plastic 'pen' for touching to the various shapes. It is designed for use with spiral-bound pads and cartridges, and comes with one pad included. The design is chunky and fun, and features a sturdy handle for carrying. However, my daughter always chose to drag hers around by the pen instead. Not a problem - we've had this for nearly three years and it's still going strong. My mother in law bought this for my daughter when she was 18 months old, so initally she had no idea what to do with it! However, she loved to make sounds with the pen by touching various shapes, and enjoyed the songs and funny voices ... Read the complete review

Father Christmas bought this toy for my son when he was 3, he absolutely loved it then and still does now at 4 1/2. It's bright, colourful, fun, robust and easy to use. It promotes and teaches concentration, pen holding skills, listening, letters, numbers, colours, big/small, memory, sounds and songs. It can be used together with an adult, then once the child becomes more used to it it can easily be used on their own. My son now changes the games cartridges and books on his own with ease. it can keep him busy for nearly an hour. The game it comes with is brilliant, and the games you can buy are also lovely. The best ... Read the complete review

The leap frog learning bus was bought for my daughter a year ago when she had just turned 3. I was quite surprised how easy the computer was to use and we both had a lot of fun trying it out. The bus retails for around £25. If you want you can use it with or without the books. You simply attach a book to the bus and put the books cartridge into the slot at the side then on each individual page there is a green "go" sign which you press to activate each page. This is to tell the bus which page your child wants to use and which activity to do. Without the books your child can learn about the alphabet and the different letter sounds etc. With the ...
