Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We had one of the old-style LeapFrog Tags for my eldest daughter which was great in her preschool year and until she started on the reading scheme at school. Was delighted to try the new LeapReader and see how LeapFrog had updated it. Firstly, it feels more robust than its predecessor - and has already survived being dropped a few times onto the wooden floors in the living room. We liked the magic paper at the back of the book - although felt more could have been included within this particular pack. Clearly they want you to buy more, but it felt a bit pointless to have just one page.
Otherwise in terms of functionality it is more or less the same as the old Tag; you need to buy a book, download the software onto the pen (although you can store more books on this unit than the old one) but it does pretty much all the same things. Felt it was slightly out of sync with how children learn at school when my daughter was pressing individual letters and it says the letter name and not the letter sound, but other than that was very pleased with it and she certainly seems to enjoy it!
