I’ve always been a fan of Leapfrog products so when they sent us the Leapfrog Tag Junior and a couple of books to try out I was very happy Tag Junior is a reading system for toddlers from age 2-4, designed for young explorers Tag Junior magically brings classic board books to life with playful sounds and activities! The different books feature many of your childs favourite characters such as Sesame Street, Thomas the Tank Engine, Dora the Explorer, Winnie The Pooh and Dr Seuss. We were sent the Tag junior with If I Were, Dr Suess’s Mr Brown Can Moo and Dora 1-2-3.
Firstly, a little warning – if you buy this for your child then make sure you open it and set the product up by connecting it to your computer and downloading any extra books etc onto it BEFORE your child sees it. You can also personalise the tag junior so that it says your childs name. The If I were book which comes with the tag junior is already pre-loaded onto the tag junior but other books need to be downloaded through the leapfrog website. It is best to do this BEFORE your child sees the tag junior or their patience may wear a little thin waiting for you to do it It doesn’t take long, only around 15 minutes but a whole 15 minutes to a toddler seems like a lifetime!

She particularly enjoys that the tag junior says hello and goodbye to her and that it uses her name. It’s simple things like that, that really make something special to a toddler I find
As a parent it amazes me how good technology in childrens toys is nowadays. The reader automatically knows which page of which book it is on (provided you’ve downloaded the book). With products for children this good and stimulating, surely children will be growing up to be super clever in the future! It’s hard to explain in words how this product works so I’ve made a little video for you demonstrating the tag reader as this might help
I’m now going to order MissB the alphabet book and get ready to read book set as I think the Tag junior is so fab The starter set with the tag junior and a book sells for around £15-£16 currently on Amazon and the different books range between £8-£12 from what I have seen. I’ve included a few links to them on Amazon below
This evening I’m focusing on MissB as she seems a bit grumpy with all the attention MasterB has had this week with his glasses. We’ve been sat playing with the Leapfrog Tag Junior books we’ve been sent to review
