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.

I would love to win the Tag system for our daughter. She’s too young to learn to read right now, but she loves books. And I love how some of the pictures sing. She would get a kick out of that.

Ohhhh… we LOVE Leapfrog in our family!!

I would love to win the Didj for my little girl- I really like that you can customize it to the skills she is currently learning.

I would also like to win the TAG system for my little guy- I love that you can connect online and track the progress of your child to see what they have been learning.

Either one would be great for us!!

Thanks so much for the great giveaway!!

I would love to win the Leapster 2. My son has a leapster and loves it! I need to get my daughter one this year. I love the leapster because my son can play games, but they are learning games. He also has a game that lets him draw without the mess of paper and markers.

Aimee December 4, 2008 at 7:24 am

We’re HUGE Leapfrog fans, too!! I’d love to win the TAG or the Leapster2. I love that the TAG has a perfect sized pen for younger kids to hold as many of them are still trying to master their fine motor skills (our 4 year old has special needs and struggles with fine motor activities, so this would be great for her!!). And on the Leapster2, I love that it’s PC AND Mac compatible…we have a Mac and so many of the educational games/systems are for PCs only. Would love to win one of these – thanks for the great giveaway!!

My kids love leapfrog products. We don’t have any of these items. Each of them have such great features too. I think I like the Tag the best. I like that it can help my budding reader with words she doesn’t know and help by youngest learn to read on his own.

I’d love the TAG. My 4-year old is learning to read, and this would be perfect for him–he LOVES to read! I like the feature that lets you touch each word individually and then says it out loud. Thanks for the great gifts!

I think I’d like the Tag system. I like that your child can read all by themselves. I also like the collection of books, however a few more options would be nice. My daughter doesn’t love princesses, is too old for Pooh, and isn’t really into Cars. Thanks for the great contest though. You are so generous!

OOH! The excitement! I’d love to win the Tag because I have a little girl who, at three, is still a little hard to understand when she speaks. I think that hearing the words spoken properly, along with the written association would be a powerful bridge to reading!

Thanks!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LeapFrog Products. My 4 year old twins have the Leapster so we would love to try out the Tag system. Although I hear you can plug the Leapster 2 into the computer to see what they are learning… Hummm tough choice. I just love Leapfrog so I’d be happy with any of their products!

We love everything Leapfrog!! We just got a Tag, so I’d love to win a Leapster 2! A great feature is that J could learn on the go or connect online at home for extra activities and fun. I also love that I can track what she’s learning online. Go Leapfrog! Keeping my fingers crossed. Any of the products would be great. If we won the Tag, we would give it as a gift!

Not only are my kids fascinated with Leap Frog as well, BUT I AM! I find their prodcuts to be awesome! We would love to win any of the three you have up for grabs but especially the TAG reading system. It’s on our list this year! Izzy will be 3 in February and she is so close to jumping on the reading wagon. I really want to give her a head start and this is a great system to choose. I love the simplicity of it and she will of course love all of the great books with her favorite characters. Thanks so much!!

I would love to win the Leapster2. My daughter has the original Leapster and it is literally falling apart. The battery won’t stay charged and the pen is broken off and lost. She uses her finger. We own so many games that she has collected over the past two years that I would rather get the Leapster2 which plays both old and new games for her to be able to use. Plus can’t afford to pay new products to go with the other systems.

Suz December 4, 2008 at 1:11 pm

My 7 year old son is already lobbying for video games but we are holding out. However, a great “toy” like Didj would be perfect for everyone. He’d love playing while we would be happy to see him learning spelling and math. I like that you can customize the learning to what he is studying in school as well as personalize the gaming to his tastes/interests.

Christine,
Thanks for hosting this great site. The giveaways are nice, but I really just enjoy reading it! I would really like to win the TAG system. My son, Aidan, is almost seven and has Down syndrome. It takes a little longer for kids with special needs to learn what we take for granted in typical kids. So helping him learn to read can sometimes turn into a “full-contact sport”. :O) Anything that will make it more enjoyable for us all is MOST welcome. I’ve been looking at the TAG system, as well as some others, but Leap Frog is always top on my list.
Thanks Again and God Bless! Have a very Merry Christmas!
