A love of books starts long before children can read, and its benefits can last a lifetime. Using the same touch technology as the TagReading System, the TagJunior Scout book pal is designed to encourage toddlers' natural desire to explore. Parents can download audio for up to five books (sold separately) for the book pal, and each Tag Junior board book introduces reading basics or different preschool skills, such as letters, numbers and early vocabulary through 24 playful activities and more than 150 audio responses. Open-ended questions and fun sound effects encourage children to take charge, as they touch any part of any page to bring words, pictures or activities to life. And Scout can learn a child's name to make getting ready to read a personal experience! After their child has played, parents can connect the book pal to the free, online LeapFrogョ Learning Path to see their child's progress and get printable activities to expand the learning fun!
Although we can only offer these items at full price, we love the products and are excited to bring them to our members.
Headquartered in Emeryville, California, LeapFrog was founded in 1995 when entrepreneur Michael Wood was unable to find toys that would help teach his son to read. Since then, the company has grown exponentially, developing a number of products focusing on three main areas: educational gaming, grade school learning toys, and reading solutions. The LeapPad was LeapFrog’s flagship product from 1999 to 2007, when it was replaced by the Tag reading system. Another notable product is the Leapster, a handheld gaming device with a touch screen.
