Leapfrog Toy Review + Giveaway

I have to admit, poor Noah has second child syndrome.  I’m just putting it out there that I may have never bought Noah a new toy….oops!

With there being four years age difference between the kids we have a lot of toys already which we have looked after and that Noah has been enjoying.

So you could say that I’m a little out of the loop on what toys are new to the market for a child his age!

I was recently sent two LeapFrog toys for Noah to have a play and review.  If you read on you can learn all about them and be in the running to win them for yourselves!

My First Scout and Violet Books RRP $24.95My First Scout Book

This toy is suitable for babies from 3 months.

Each page of this touch-and-feel book is so cute!  There’s a shiny pond, crinkly flower, peek-a-boo flap and baby-safe mirror.  If you press the music note button you will hear a sweet welcome song and four sing-along songs that introduce your child to numbers, letters, colours and shapes.

You can then explore further learning on each page by pressing the 123, Shapes, ABC and Colour tabs to hear songs, sounds and learning phrases.  Little hands can also grasp the handle to take with them!

Scout’s and Violet’s Learning Lights Remote RRP $16.95

This toy is suitable for infants from 6 months old.

Noah loves our remote control and I’m sure you can relate that most kids seem to make a beeline for the remote!  Well now he has his own one that’s super cool!

It has a light-up screen, a ton of different buttons a French language channel and two modes of play.  The remote assists children with early learning concepts as they pretend play.

The remote has more than 65 songs, tunes and learning responses. You can toggle up, down, left or right to play a shapes game or count along.  You child can also learn simple French words to help shapes in the garden.

Birde – Smart media player for kids

I don’t know about you guys but I’m always looking for ways to reduce Gracie’s screen/tech time.  Unfortunately with the world we’re living in today our children are very much growing up in a digital age.

So when I was approached by Birde to review their interactive media player I jumped at the chance.

Birde Media Player

Birde was created by two Aussie parents who were looking for a positive way for toddlers and preschoolers to learn without needing a screen, keyboard, mouse or remote control.

Birde includes a high quality speaker that can be paired with a compatible smart TV or used on it’s own.  The content includes music, audiobooks and videos.

Not only does Birde look super cool, it’s also wireless and has more than 8 hours of battery life before needing to be recharged (great for taking out on road trips!), it’s also waterproof, washable and if it gets dropped no issues because  it’s been made to withstand little hands!

Birde Media Player

We received a lovely starter pack (worth $60) which includes music, audiobooks and videos + a bonus Funky Chicken Seed Pack (valued at $14.95).  You are able to purchase more of the seeds via the app or purchasing Birde Seeds.

Gracie absolutely loves the fact that she can control the function, she’s not stopped playing with it since we got it and Noah has been joining in to have a little bop with her and I don’t have to worry about it breaking!!



Birde have kindly given my community $100 off a Birde Bundle.  The code is: MEL100 and expires 30th April 2019
