Toddlers & Preschoolers Toddlers & Preschoolers

Take it back or give it to them?

Posted by   + Show Post
I bought my daughter who's 1 a disney princess LeapPad2 and my son who's 4 a green leap pad2. Too much? I don't know.



I want them to learn but should I have waited to get it for my daughter? I saw both of them on Black Friday and jumped without thinking it through.

For me, this is the first time I'm actually buying stuff for my son that uses batteries. He's 4. I really like the idea of using toys that run on imagination instead of batteries with a computer chip in it. My son does have a V-reader now, but he hardly uses it. He mostly wants to play with his action figures and on my wii or x-box but only if he's being really good. My SO got him a Nintendo DS, and I'm still not sure how I feel about it :/ But that's just me.

My kids use our Nook. Both have been using it for over a year and know how to do a lot of things on it. They have it read to them (or the 5 year old tries to read), watch Youtube (G rated) videos (I am right next to him), listen to music, play games.
My husband still thinks a leapster/leappad is a good idea. I told him he is crazy. It's like he is obsessed with buying one even though I think they know the Nook just fine. Neither has ever dropped or broken it. Dh has one and we have a second one we call "Aiden's Nook" (it's actually mine ;) but he uses it 90% of the time).

Plus you have to buy stuff for the leapster/leappad, whereas I've gotten a lot of free stuff off the Nook store for free.

vtech. has some great. interactive toys. you might want to look them up inline


Quoting Mom2Ava.Ayden:

Thanks ladies! Like I said I wasn't sure for her, but I have also never bought things like that for my kids at all before as well. Looks like I have a trip to make for the store.



Are there anything interactive out there for my daughter? On the lines of learning?

 daughter may be too young, but if you got a good deal you could save it to give to her later. A really nice lady from cafemom sent my son a lot of things last year and had a leapster 2 in there. he was only 1 1/2 at the time so I saved it for this year.
