The Kiddies Review LeapFrog Learning School

*Affiliate Link.

My kids have a couple of LeapFrog toys and gadgets. The brand has so many entertaining and educative toys, which is why many kids loved them! Today is all about the amazing LeapFrog Learning School Playset! My kids have had this toy for years now and it is still a hit. They play with it almost everyday and they can easily do so for hours. My daughter really enjoys role play and she gets into her element with this LeapFrog Learning School. It is a cool toy to have around for the little ones.

This Leapfrog Learning School is a great way to introduce kids to the idea of school! It is great to get this toy when your little one is about to go into pre school as they can play with it at home beforehand and get into the idea of learning in a structured environment. The toy teaches school routines, listening comprehension and pretend play. It is great for children 2 years and over.

My kids (especially my daughter) really enjoy playing with this lovely toy as you can see in the video below. She could easily do this for hours if possible. I love the fact that it encourages imaginative play. This is something my kids are lacking now thanks to the gadget life we are all living. It also encourages fine motor skills with doors that open and close, a spinning carousel, accelerating slide.

The twins went on a bear hunt in school and have been talking about it non stop ever since! They really enjoyed the experience and love singing the going on a bear hunt song. Watch the video below and tell me what you think. You can also follow us on our YouTube Channel. We post new videos every week!

The Books the Kids are Reading

Hey peeps! I hope everyone enjoyed the bank holiday. I know I did. Although it was cold and wet outside, I made the most of the quiet time. We have been doing a lot of reading in the last few days. The kids love reading books, and I encourage them to read even more. They have eBooks downloaded on their Leapfrogs, but they actually prefer reading physical books. Here are some of their favourite books at the moment.

The Tickle Book

The kids love reading this Tickle Book. They have had the book for months now and they still laugh every time I read it to them. I can see why this book is a hit with them. I do find it very funny too

The Tickle Book is written by Ian Whybrow and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. This colourful funny board book is great for children between the ages of 3 – 5 years old. It is full of fun rhymes and silly scenarios. We got ours for £8.99.

The Beginner’s Bible

The Beginner’s Bible by Catherine DeVries is another hit in our house. My twins love reading the bible stories in this book, and as a believer, I am thrilled they enjoy reading their bible.

This bible uses simple text and bright images to grab children’s attention. It is great for children between the ages of 2 – 5 years old. You can grab a copy online for £10.99.

Let’s make a cake

Let’s make a cake is one of the newest book in our kiddies bookshelf. My daughter enjoys reading this book in her preschool so I had to find it. After searching online for days, I finally stumbled on a preloved copy on eBay for £2.29.

Let’s make a cake by Wendy Body and illustrated by Adrienne Geoghegan is a great book for any child learning to read. This is one book my kiddies can actually read correctly by themselves. It is an amazing first reading book.

 

 

Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt

This is another favourite with the kids. Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt is interesting book for Peppa Pig’s fans. It can serve as a fantastic Easter present instead of the good old Easter egg gift.

We got this Peppa Pig book for £3.74 on Amazon. It is ideal for children between the ages of 2 – 5 years old.

Thanks for reading.

Road Trips this Summer

I hear the weather is going to be nice and warm for the next 10 days, so I have started making plans to ensure I make the most of the sunshine, before it gets all wet and gloomy again.

The summer holidays are around the corner, and that means road trips and holidays are being planned as I type. I enjoy road trips. We do a couple every year, and we have now become professionals at planning them.

You may find these summer road trip tips very useful, if you have a road trip planned –

Check the Car

Make sure your car is ready for the long trip ahead. Check the car all around, especially the tyres, to ensure it is ready for the trip. If you don’t know what to look out for, seek advice from a professional.

Get a Breakdown Cover

Ensure you have a breakdown cover. Being stuck on the motorway is the last thing you would expect but it does happen. It has happened to us before years ago. We had a car accident, and we were grateful to have a breakdown cover, which helped us in the accident situation. Trust me, the shock of an accident and having to deal with a car accident injury is enough, being  stranded on the road and having to worry about the recovery of the car, is too much. It is better to get a breakdown cover in place before embarking on a trip.

Entertainment and Snacks

If your kids are like mine, then they get bored very quickly on long road trips. So we like to go with entertainment and snacks to get them happy. So snacks in abundance on our trips. The tablets come in very handy, especially the LeapFrog, with the amazing battery life. We are a family that likes to read, so I also make sure there are books to keep the kiddies happy, and I am never without my Kindle as well.

Regular Breaks

Depending on how far you are travelling, stopping regularly for short breaks also help keep everyone refreshed and fed.

Have a Sat Nav

I don’t like maps, and I don’t know how to read them. So I rely on Sat Navs that speaks, so the instructions are clear and there is no room for assumptions. Having a Sat Nav usually help ensure the road trip goes smoothly. We would be lost without one.

 

Do you have any road trips to share?
