LeapFrog was kind enough to send us a new Touch Magic Learning Bus to have some fun with. My little girl loves it. Sadie is almost three, and all of a sudden she is making that huge leap with counting and letter recognition. So the Touch Magic Learning Bus could not have come at a better time. Of course, anything that incorporates music is a winner in her book…and mine.
Like the Touch Magic Rockin’ Guitar I posted about last week, the Learning Bus uses LeapFrog’s new touch technology to recognize and respond to touches and swipes from little fingers. This makes it completely intuitive for kids. Sadie sat down and was using it right away. I didn’t have to show her what to do, or explain anything to her.
I love the smooth Touch Magic interface. I can easily give it a quick wipe down without having to worry about mystery nooks and crannies. With school starting for us next week, germs are going to be a issue. Not to gross anybody out or anything, but let me just say two words: Stomach flu. It’s not pretty, but it’s out there, and it reeks havoc on toys and blankets. It’s nice to have a smooth wipeable toy, right?
Sadie loves that she can play with the letters, the piano keys, or the cute animals in the top window. Even the wheels add a drum sound.
Our favorite thing to do is sit down and play with it together. She likes to show me what everything does. Learning through teaching, it’s the best way! Plus I get to have some snuggle time, while she gets some play time. It’s been great for early morning couch time in our PJs!
My not so little guy Max, who is going into first grade, likes to play with it too. He likes the game mode. It asks him specific questions, or tells him to touch a certain letter, and he loves getting it right.
In fact, the other day they were using it to play school together. They had it set up on the vintage school desk in Max’s room and were taking turns being the teacher. Those stinkers wouldn’t let me get a picture though. But that’s ok, I just sat back and took a mental snapshot of them playing together so sweetly.
We are big fans of LeapFrog in our house, and we definitely love this new line of toys. They keep the kids engaged, and playtime smoothly transitions into learning time.
