The British Association of Toy Retailers Preschool Toy of the Year 2001/2002 Kids Out Good Toy Awards Overall winner 3 years + Practical Pre-School Merit Award No 1 Educational Toy, Toy of the Year Awards 2000 (USA) Peoples Choice, Toy of the Year Awards 2000 (USA) Requires 4xAA batteries (not included) Leap into learning with the stunning LeapPad interactive learning system from LeapFrog, and watch young readers get to grips with reading without even noticing the work. Even the most reluctant of readers will find this system irresistible. The LeapPad includes a nifty software system that combines a "magic" pen with an interactive book designed to help children spell, follow a story and improve their vocabulary and concentration. Users simply place the book onto the pad, take up the pen and follow the story. They listen to the story being read aloud first, then go over the words again with the pen, choosing whether to say the words, spell them or sound them phonetically. Each element encourages the child to join in, helping to develop an understanding of the sounds each word makes and how the words fit to form a sentence, and then a story. The real fun starts when the pen touches one of the characters: the slightest touch makes them speak and giggle along, adding a further dimension.
