LeapFrog Rock n' Learn Party With Touch Magic Learning Bus & RockinGuitar

 Do you know that most child development experts agree that play is essential to high quality learning in small and preschool aged children?

 This is true for my 3 almost 4yr old son, and many other children. I have found that he especially tends to learn things when they are put into song, which is why I have been loving Leapfrog's new Touch Magic Learning Bus and Rockin Guitar.


          Touch Magic Little Touches Big Learning
 Touch Magic a new product line from LeapFrog, brings intuitive touch technology to preschool toys for the first time. Combining fun, learning and creativity, Touch Magic Learning Toys recognize every tap, touch and swipe to bring each product to life! The launch portfolio includes: Touch Magic Learning Bus, Touch Magic Rockin Guitar, and Touch Magic Counting Train.

 I was selected to host a Leapfrog Touch Magic Rock n' Learn Party with my son and some of his friends. Included in our party kit were:

  • 2 Rockin Guitars: The Rockin Guitar brings musical fun and helps develop preschool skills with every little touch. Kids can choose to play solo without a backup or play along with a band or select electric or acoustic guitar to play 10 built in songs including: Rockin' Robin, Itsy Bitsy Spider, If Your Happy and You Know It, Pop Goes The Weasel, and more. Plus kids can customize their play experience with guitar riffs, silly sounds, and drums creating 100+ musical combinations to make every song unique.
  • 1 Learning Bus: Learning ABC’s is one of the first steps in early childhood development. The Touch Magic Learning Bus takes children on a magical journey filled with educational discovery and games.  With a simple touch, preschoolers can use the six piano keys and two drum pads to play along with songs including Wheels on the Bus, ABC song, and original Rockin’ School Baby. The interactive surface features glossy, smooth graphics encouraging exploration and features over 40 touch points  that allow kids to play their way through core learning skills.

 We just finished our party a few hours ago, and while we didn't have as many guests as was expected the kids that did come had a blast! They rocked out on the Guitars, and played along to with the guitars on the Learning Bus.  We made Rockin School Bus books, and sang along to the songs on the Rockin Guitar which include: The Alphabet Song, Pop Goes the Weasel, Your a Rockstar, and my personal favorite Rockin Robin. I love that the Touch Magic toys are easy for small children to use and learn.

 I did notice that after a while dirty little hands, cause the touch pads to stick. The great thing about Touch Magic toys is that they easily wipe clean, which is a must with small children.

My personal favorite of the toys included in the party kit is the Learning Bus. I have recently started to introduce letters and flash cards just aren't cutting it. They don't hold my son's attention. I can tell you that as I type this out my 3 year old is playing with the Touch Magic Learning Bus and not only repeating the letter's that he touches, but also repeating the sounds that each particular letter makes! It's fantastic! He's learning and he doesn't even know it.  These are really great learning toys and I'm thinking about using one of the coupons included to pick up the Magic Touch Counting Train.

 LeapFrog Touch Magic Toys can me purchased at Target and other major retailers.
