Holiday Gift Guide 2010: SmartyAnts Phonics Reading Pup (Review & Giveaway)

A Litte Bit About the SmartyAnts Phonics Reading Pup:
From the founder of LeapFrog
The SmartyAnts Phonics Reading Pup was developed by the founder of LeapFrog and is an educational companion that offers your child a fun, interactive way to learn to read. The cuddly robotic dog comes with a one-month membership to the SmartyAnts Web site, an innovative site that includes a vast variety of stories and games to help children ages four to seven (preschool to first-grade) develop reading skills. Download songs and stories from the site to the puppy, and he will sing phonics-based songs and tell stories that help children practice reading skills.
  Our Experience
The princess loves us to read to her! We read with her daily, and her love for books only grows as she gets older. So I was excited when we were introduced to the new SmartyAnts Phonics Reading Pup (from the founder of LeapFrog). The Phonics Reading Pup comes with 10 pre-loaded songs, one story, and a membership to the Smarty Ants online world (where you can download new stories and songs to your puppy).

 We received the White Puppy (pictured above; also available in the Husky Puppy), and upon taking it out of the box, I was pleasantly surprised by the softness! This cuddly little pup is ready to go straight out of the box, so we pressed his paw, and the princess lit up in delight as the pleasant voice sang and the pup moved (very lifelike), she was in complete awe! We later took her online to the SmartyAnt's site where you can download additional stories and songs (very easy) and play in the online SmartyAnts virtual world. The Phonics Reading Pup is perfectly age appropriate, and such a fun reading companion (we strive to make learning fun in our home :); The princess has found a new best buddy!

The most interactive, fun, learning toy I've seen this season! Bring home the SmartyAnts Phonics Reading Pup this Holiday season! Inspire little minds with this fun, cuddly, and interactive reading tool!
