Our LeapFrog Touch Magic "Rock 'n Learn" Party


LeapFrog has been a trusted educational toy brand that parents have depended on for many years. With products like the LeapPad, Leapster, Tag Junior and a host of other toys, LeapFrog is consistently leading the way in educational toys for children.  Offering children nothing but the best in education and entertainment, LeapFrog has made its mark in households across the world.

LeapFrog is a leading designer, developer and marketer of innovative, technology-based educational products and related proprietary content. LeapFrog is 100% focused on developing products that will provide the most engaging, effective learning experience - for all ages, in school or home, around the world. We put learning first - a philosophy that distinguishes us from our competitors and fuels the entire company.


We recently had the opportunity to try out a few of the NEW LeapFrog Touch Magic toys, including: the Touch Magic Learning Bus and the Touch Magic Rockin Guitar.  We had friends and family over to try out these NEW toys and have a bit of LeapFrog fun together!

Touch Magic LearningBus: Takes children on a musical journey filled with educational discovery and games.  With a simple touch, preschoolers can use the six piano keys and two drum pads to play along with songs that include Wheels on the Bus, ABC Song and th original, Rockin’ School Bus.

Build these core learning skills on the road to discovery:
-Letter sounds and letter recognition
-Early vocabulary
-Animals & Instruments
-Creative Music Play

Touch Magic Rockin Guitar: Includes a guitar, percussion and special effect sounds—even applause. With ten different learning songs, little musicians can layer in sounds and create their own unique music. Parents can connect to the online LeapFrog Learning Path for customized learning insights and ideas to expand the learning.

Teaches:
-Increases a child's creativity as well as support language, math, and physical development.
-Promotes social play--making things, dramatizing, or playing games.
-Motor skills allow children to coordinate the muscles needed to pull, push, grasp, point, and write.


The kids had a BLAST playing with all of the LeapFrog activities! The Rockin Guitar and the Learning Bus provided lots of entertainment for the kids! Once the excitement of being able to play together and play these cool instruments, they finally realized that they could actually do/learn multiple things when playing on it!  I must admit, the Learning Bus with those symbol wheels made for a huge HIT at the party!  LeapFrog has always been a trusted brand in our house and it was great to be able to share this experience with others.

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Available on DVD: 9/18!

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Available on DVD: September 18th
Rated: PG-13

Synopsis: 
An award-winning, all-star cast, led by Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith, lights up this “buoyant comedy laced with genuine emotion.” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) When seven cash-strapped seniors decide to “outsource” their retirement to a resort in far-off India, friendship and romance blossom in the most unexpected ways. Smart, life-affirming and genuinely charming, THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is a “true classic that reminds us that it’s never too late to find love and a fresh beginning at any age.” (Rex Reed, The New York Observer).
