Monsters University on LeapPad

Where does the time go??  Monsters, Inc. was released in 2001.  Can you believe that was 12 years ago?!  I can't.  It seems like only yesterday I was watching it with my daughter.  But, then again, she is 17 now...   With the release of Monsters University on June 21st, a whole new group of children will be introduced to Mike and Sulley.
Recently, the cool people at LeapFrog asked me to review a few of their products and give you my honest opinions.  I was excited, because who doesn't love LeapFrog toys!
This Leap Reader was a lot of fun! This is LeapFrog's first 3-D book.  It is recommended for children ages 5-8 years old.  The story builds reasoning and logic skills, provides practice identifying nouns & verbs, and teaches positional words.
Your child can choose to  have the whole page read to him/her or touch each word individually,with the pen, to have it read.  You can even tap the pictures to hear things about the characters!  

The LeapPad 2 is like an iPhone for kids.  There are apps, a front and rear camera, and music!  
While this game, Monsters University, is marketed for children ages 4-7-my 11 year old had a great time with it!  In this game, the player works their way through 24 levels-training to be the top scarer.  Puzzles, memory games, and the ability to create your own monster are some of the highlights.

The LeapPad 2 has volume controls, a jack for headphones, and runs on 4 AA batteries.  There are many apps on the LeapPad- games, e-books, videos, an art studio and more!  A front and rear camera can be used to create characters and other pictures.

I encourage you to check out LeapFrog products for your child or classroom.  There are many skills taught and practiced in the games and activities!

LeapFrog sent me this product free of charge for review, but the opinions are mine and mine alone!
