If you know me, you know that I LOVE rainy days. I love dreary days with grey skies, I know.. most people think I’m weird. I could totally make it in Seattle! Today, is one of those days : ) : ) However, just because I like cloudy days does NOT mean my kids do. I have what one might call … active children! So we have to make the best of these days inside the house.
I recently received this…
and boy do we love it! You might remember me saying in a few posts that Addison is OBSESSED with her ABC’s right now and forces me to sing them ALL.DAY.LONG! Well this is her new favorite toy… she can sing her ABC’s until her little heart’s content!
Addison is the biggest mommy’s girl I have ever seen. I can’t go to the bathroom without her attached to my leg! When she plays with this it is one of the rare times I can get stuff done without holding her! Plus look at how intently she plays with it! Isn’t she adorable?!
I can honestly say that the learning bus has helped her with her letter recognition tremendously. She just turned two and she was already pretty advanced with her letter’s and numbers but didn’t really know her letters by sight yet. She would just say them and repeat and knew the letter’s in her name. After letting her play with this for a few weeks she walks around pointing to letters everywhere and telling me which ones they are! I can’t believe how fast she picked it up.
Addison doesn’t get bored with this toy either. She usually will play with something a few minutes and move on, but with this there are three different modes:
She loves all three! There are over 200 learning and musical responses for her to go through. The music mode is adorable and she sings a long. There are songs like “Wheels on the Bus” – doesn’t that take you back? I love it when she plays with the piano keys. Every since she was born I thought she was going to be a piano player… she has the longest fingers I have ever seen! Plus her daddy plays : )
If you are thinking about a toy for Christmas or birthday this is the way to go! I am loving this touch magic technology by Leap Frog! There are no buttons, it’s just a nice flat surface which makes it super awesome when you need to clean it up because well.. kid are dirty sometimes ; ). It is also super lightweight, perfect for road trips.
We are planning to head back to Texas for Christmas and the Leap Frog Learning Bus is definitely coming with us!!
