LeapFrog Touch Magic

Disclosure: I have received LeapFrog products to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Over the years, I have purchased many LeapFrog toys for my children. I love their products but had not purchased any new Leapfrog toys in a while. I was excited when LeapFrog sent over 2 toys for my my children to play with and for me to review. Touch Magic is the latest and greatest in LeapFrog toys and we were lucky enough to review the Learning Bus and Counting Train. With all electronic gadgets turning to touch screen, it was about time that toys jump on the bandwagon.

Touch Magic Learning Bus:

  • 3 modes – learning, letter exploration and music
  • Learning – All 26 letters of the alphabet – when pressed says the letter and sound it makes – when the letters are pressed over and overĀ againĀ  it cycles through the letter, sound and word that begins with that letter
  • Letter Exploration – teaching children to make the connection between a sound and the letter it starts with – a learning game
  • Music – Says “Let’s Jam”when pressed, Leapfrog characters in the windows of the bus with each holding a different instrument and plays different music when pressed, piano plays music, also has fun sing along songs – alphabet etc..
  • Runs on 3 AAA batteries
  • For 2+ years
  • $24.99

The Touch Magic Learning Bus is a little young for my 13 month old daughter. She is not interested which I think is because she has not fully figured out the touch screen technology. On the other hand, my 3 and 5 year old boys enjoyed it (I will be honest – I had fun playing with it). It may be easy concepts for them but the touch activated is what they enjoy. I am a huge fan of the Learning Bus. It is better than all the other toys that we have that “teach” the alphabet!

Touch Magic Counting Train:

  • 3 modes – learning, number exploration and music
  • Touch numbers 1-20 – hear the names and count along
  • Sing along to fun songs and build your own version of “Old MacDonald” with 10 friendly farm characters sitting in the train
  • Explore 20 vocabulary words for food and animals and get practice associating a set of objects with a number.
  • Runs on 3 AAA batteries
  • For 2+ years
  • $24.99
I like that the Counting Train teaches numbers to 20. Most number/counting toys only go to 10 but this one goes to 20 which is even better. My children like the Counting Train but they like the Learning Bus more! Comparing the two, the Bus is better, but independently the Train is also a great learning toy!
