It can be frustrating to see your kids glued to electronic games when you’d prefer them to be learning and creatively using their imaginations, but with LeapFrog, they can do both. The company was founded over 20 years ago by Mike Wood, who was looking for a way to make his children excited about learning to read. He invented the LeapPad electronic learning system, and the company has taken off from there. LeapFrog products bring learning to life, by letting children interact in a fun and exciting way with electronic lights and sounds. While kids only focus on the fun toys they are playing with, LeapFrog products are teaching valuable skills at the same time. The youngest learners can use electronic stuffed animals which teach numbers, colors, feelings and simple words. More advanced learners can move on to tablets full of educational games and electronic books to create better readers.
