LeapStart™ Interactive Learning System - Screen-Free Learning Fun That Grows With Your Child

I've been on the hunt lately for screen-free learning activities and fun for our toddler. While we love some of the fun kids tablets currently on the market, it's equally as fun and important to have screen-free activities for preschoolers to explore, too.

We are absolutely loving the new LeapStart™ Interactive Learning System by LeapFrog! It's a wonderful screen free tool for early learning, that actually grows with your child. There are two versions of this interactive system currently available; "Preschool" and "Kidergarten & 1st Grade." While our soon to be 3 year old is using the Kidergarten & 1st Grade version [pictured], it accommodates all of the preschool "level 1 & 2" books, too. You simply need to connect the learning system to your computer [via the on-board USB port] and download the content for each of the books, from the LeapFrog website. It only takes a few minutes [it's super simple] and I love that the system will continue to grow with him through 1st grade.

We added quiet a few books to his LeapStart library, and he's been having a blast exploring the many page elements and activities offered in each book title.

He's learning everything from shapes, to colors, to numbers, to early geography, to early handwriting skills, and MORE! As a mom, I love that the LeapStart actually requires the fine motor skills of holding the pencil/pen-like stylus, to navigate the pages/activities. I also adore that this fun andengaging system holds his attention for 20-25 minutes at a time; fairly remarkable for his age!

If you're looking for screen-free learning toys and activities to gift your child this holiday season {and to occupy them with this winter} definitely be sure to check out the LeapStart Interactive Learning System! I promise you, it'll be a total hit! [MSRP $39.99]
