My Kids Leap for LeapFrog! (A Giveaway)

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on December 4, 2008

There are not many “toys” that my kiddos have that can keep them entertained for hours at a time. LeapFrog learning systems are such toys. You know what? As a mom, and my kiddos’ teacher, I am so happy that they can learn – I mean, play – so effortlessly. With games that help them learn how to read, solve problems, and practice their addition and subtraction, there are non that compare.


Win it!

Thanks to the fine folks at LeapFrog, I have one of each of my favorite Leapster products for you to win – the TAG and the Leapster 2. As a bonus, one of you will also win a Didj system – one we have yet to try! That means three of you will win a system for someone special on your gift list, just in time for Christmas!

Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave me a comment on this post, by 9pm on December 12th, telling me which system you would like to win, explaining one of the features of that system.
  • For an additional entry, head over to An Ordinary Life and/or Chic Shopper Chick and leave them a comment on one of the gift guide related posts. Leave me a comment here telling me about the post you visited.
  • Be sure you visit this post, to grab my Gift Guide button, for another extra entry!

Three lucky commenters will be chosen at random, each winning one of the above mentioned LeapFrog systems. Winners will be notified via email, so make sure you leave a valid email address in your comment.

The Didj would be awesome as you can sync it with what the kid is learning at school!

I would love to win the Tag system for my son. I like how the system is wide so that it’s easy for little hands to use.


kathemc December 6, 2008 at 3:12 pm

The Tag is our favorite, but we’d be thrilled to win any one of the three! Love that all three systems are designed for little hands — Leapfrog always keeps the end user (little ones) in mind!

I’d love to win the Didj for my two older boys but would be thrilled to win the Leapster 2 as all three of my boys could use it.
I love that I could monitor their progress online and adjuster their skill level.


Jean December 6, 2008 at 3:51 pm

I actually came over from Ordinary Life and had commented on the Play House Disney race track and Nerf toys. Great giveaways you guys are having, thanks so much!


Mudpies and Mary Janes December 6, 2008 at 7:42 pm

Thanks for the great giveaway. I would like the Didji for my daughter. I like that it connects to the computer so you can focus on what they are learning in school.


cathyhall December 6, 2008 at 7:44 pm

We would love to win the Leapster 2 (my son is 4, so he is just the right age). we love how it promotes learning through play. thanks so much for theis giveaway for teh holidays!


NateAndJakesMom December 6, 2008 at 7:48 pm

I really like the TAG system. My favorite feature is that it talks in the characters voice! How cool is that?

I would love to win the LeapFrog® Leapster® 2 Learning Game System – Green or pink if available! lol
I love the fact that you can hook it up to the computer to track their progress. Would be perfect for my 4 year old who is so interested in learning new things!



Krissy and Angela December 7, 2008 at 9:40 am

I posted a comment on Chic Shopper Chick about the Face Off Frenzy!
My 2 oldest would LOVE playing!



Krissy and Angela December 7, 2008 at 9:42 am

I added your Gift Guide button.



Ginny December 7, 2008 at 11:07 am

I’d love to win the Didj for my daughter. One feature I like is that it is totally customized learning. You can sync the games to the skills of the child.


Ginny December 7, 2008 at 11:10 am

I’ve commented on tons of posts from Ordinary life. Most recently was the boys gift guide.


butterflies26 December 7, 2008 at 11:28 am

I would love to win the leapster 2. I have a young son who will be getting ready for something like this. I have two older children that I bought the leap frog reader things for a long long time ago. They are now both in Gifted programs at school. I believe leagfrog helped with this. I hope I can win this for my son for christmas.


makeetis December 7, 2008 at 7:00 pm

My kids would love it if I won one of these. I would say the Didj but anyone of these I would be grateful for. Thanks so much for the chance to win one of these great prizes. brewerchickey78(at)


Shannon December 7, 2008 at 8:54 pm

Tag is best for us I think. I love the variety of books and singing.


Stephanie December 7, 2008 at 9:11 pm

I would love to win the Didj system because kids and parents can also shape the learning online by choosing the math and spelling skills they’d like the games to focus on. My kids love to read and play games… adding some educational value is even better!
I also left a comment on “An Ordinary Life” for an extra entry!


Angie December 7, 2008 at 9:35 pm

My son would love to win the Didj system. I love that after game information is uploaded from the handset, parents can follow a link in the connect software to see their children’s progress, making it easy to track success. And, anytime you can sneak learning in by playing is awesome! Thanks!



Linda B December 8, 2008 at 5:58 am

I would love to win the Leapster 2 system for my grandaughter. It will help her with counting using familar objects, spelling, and reading with letter names and sounds. I know she would love it! Thanks!



Susan F December 8, 2008 at 6:05 am

My son has the Leapster system. He is now ready to take the next step. The Didj would be perfect for him to help in with reading, math, spelling, and reasoning skills. Thanks a lot!



Loralynn December 8, 2008 at 8:34 am

I love the Diji! I am always looking for ways to make learning more fun for my 7yr old Daughter. I think she would really enjoy this. Her older brothers all have Nintendo DS games, but I won’t let her have one of those yet and I think this would be a way for her to feel like she has her own special “big kid” toy!

Great Giveaway!


Loralynn December 8, 2008 at 8:35 am

I have your button in my sidebar!


onangelwings December 8, 2008 at 12:22 pm

The Diji System is so needed. You can make your own characters and it is portable. My son is tortured in my daughters ballet class, this would keep him busy for the hour and then some.


lizardklein December 8, 2008 at 2:50 pm

I would love the TAG for my 2-year-old. Reading is his favorite pastime and he would love to be able to read a book to his little brother with the wand. The fact that the character voices change is a bonus. When I change my voice to read a story he has me read the pages over and over.


Purplemommi December 8, 2008 at 3:29 pm

I would love to win the Didj. It is a game that will entertain my daughter while teaching her useful things which I can customize to her specific stage in learning. Thank you.


Andria December 8, 2008 at 5:47 pm

I would love to win the TAG. I like that it helps to teach kids learn to read through an exciting and interactive experience! Thanks!


Michelle December 8, 2008 at 9:43 pm

I would love to win a Leapster 2 for my son. I missed the day after Thanksgiving deals on Leapsters and haven’t been able to find a good deal on one since!
I just found your blog and enjoy it. Thanks for this giveaway!

I have been eying the Tag system – it is so cool! We do a lot of reading in our house. It is very neat that you can point the pen to the different words in the story, and it ‘knows’ which word it is.


labbymom December 9, 2008 at 5:40 am

Being a teacher and being passionate about reading, I would love the TAG for my 2 and 4 year-olds. Reading is one of their favorite pastimes. I love the at the wand reads to them. What a great fun and interactive way to enjoy learning to read all the more!!


sheenaholmberg December 9, 2008 at 11:38 am

My daughter would enjoy the tag because she is beginning to sound out words and read some stories but this product can help her with anything she cant comprehend or sound out. With 2 little sisters this gives her the opportunity to read whenever she chooses with help even if I’m not available to help. The extra option of being able to track their progress is a helpful option for the parents also….


Meggy978 December 9, 2008 at 2:29 pm

I would love to win the Didj Gaming System. I like the feature where kids can customize their own avatar. My nephew LOVES creating his Mii on the Wii so he’d have fun doing this on the Didj system as well. Thanks!


Natasha December 10, 2008 at 4:16 am

I would love to win the TAG for my little guy! I like that not only are there stories, but also learning activities to encourage other reading skills!


Romie December 10, 2008 at 8:46 pm

My daughter would love the Tag, she loves to “read” and I can see her having a great time. Touching all the text and images and have it read it to her would just rock!!


Lisa C December 11, 2008 at 1:15 pm

The Didj looks great, I think kids will love that there are so many things they can customize (characters, music, etc)!


Amiee Lindstrom December 11, 2008 at 6:39 pm
Mommyhood is Thankless December 12, 2008 at 2:19 am

I would love to win the Tag because you can connect the Tag Reader to the online LeapFrog Learning Path to see what their child is learning, and explore ways to expand their child’s learning journey!



leah December 12, 2008 at 6:33 pm

I like the Leapster 2, it’s cool how parents can go online to the LeapFrog Learning Path to see what their child is learning!


Melissa Pallas December 4, 2009 at 11:54 pm

My boys would love the Leapster 2! that is the first thing they run too when we go towards the toy aisle. It great for the younger and older kids plus they have many different learning games to play with it.
