My girls love story time. Mommy usually reads books and Daddy tells them “Little Brian Stories” (stories about him as a little boy – only they don’t realize the stories are about him). They love hearing stories and it’s really exciting because Zoë is learning to read. So anytime we get a new book or reading activity, they are very excited!
So when I heard that LeapFrog (one of our favorite brands) had a new product out, Read with Me Scout, I was excited to receive one to review. This interactive plush toy helps kids develop reading comprehension skills to get them prepared to read.
Read with Me Scout comes with five interactive stories, which he reads aloud. All your child has to do is press the button on Scout’s collar that corresponds to the book to get him to start reading. When they’re ready to turn the page, just pat Scout’s head and he’ll continue.
Scout doesn’t just read the story though – he also asks your child questions throughout every story. I love how interactive that makes story time!
Music is just as big in our house as reading. So we were excited when we learned that Scout also has a love for singing! Press his paw and he will sing you a song.
In Sleepy Time Mode, Scout will help your child unwind and get settled by reading relaxing stories and playing lullabies for 8 minutes.
This is a great new toy by LeapFrog. I hope they come out with more books for Scout to read!
Read with Me Scout by LeapFrog retails for $34.99 and can be purchased at many retailers, including Amazon.com, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart.
