WEEK #10:


The Little Ones "Twelve Weeks Before Christmas" Holiday Toy Series is designed to help parents and grandparents make smart choices by featuring outstanding/award winning "toys that teach," accompanied by reviews which highlight and explain the educational benefits and specific skills children receive from these types of toys.


Children love interactive toys! Electronic learning toys possess the unique ability to present information in a variety of ways. Thus, they are successful with many different types of learners. The multi-sensory approach includes visual, auditory and tactile learning strategies. For example, when using the Leapfrog Fridge Word Builder (below), children see an alphabet letter, hold the alphabet letter in their hand and hear the sound the alphabet letter makes (phonics) when they place it into the word builder. The word builder then combines the sounds and reads the word. The combination of these three approaches reinforces the learning process. It's not only educationally sound, but enjoyable as well! Children thrive on these types of interactive toys that combine both learning and fun!

Many of the more advanced learning systems like the Leapfrog Learning Game System or Leapfrog Tag Reading, have additional cartridges or books that expand and enrich the learning experience. Additional topics reinforce Math, Science, Reading or Critical Thinking skills and strategies. Choosing quality educational electronic toys like these can give your child a head start on learning. You'll find that these smart purchases are well worth your investment!
