The leapfrog was for my one year old son her loves music. His is constantly playing with our iphones so we though we would try this out. He loves all the different music that it plays. It has a good variety so you don't get fed up with the same tune. Its a shame it doesn't still have a more music player feel as he still like our iphones however once we give him the Leapfrog music player it soon distracts him. Also its not too loud. Good stocking filler or small gift for a 12month+.
