With a little help from a bigger friend (parent, guardian…), young children can launch into the world of learning via interactive books. Little Touch LeapPad is designed for tots 6 to 36 months, with three distinct levels of activities and stories: musical rhythms and sounds; short descriptive phrases; and rhymes and early learning. Stories or activity cards snap into the book frame, along with a story cartridge. Grownups will need to help little ones activate the book pages by touching the "Go" button every time a page is turned, as well as showing young "readers" how to touch pictures to make them come to life with developmentally appropriate narration and learning activities. A comfy cushion is attached to the LeapPad platform for cozy shared reading time. Four AA batteries required (not included). --Emilie Coulter

Customer Reviews

First the book has paper pages.
D. Perris
You have to press hard to get the noises to activate and it's frustrating to have to press the "GO" button every time a page is turned.
GlobalNomad
Also, the book pages are a bit flimsy and rip/bend easily, making it difficult to fit them properly into the leappad.

We, like many of you, were REALLY excited to see a LeapPad for little ones and bought it as soon as we could, with extra books. It is an amazing little toy that will grow with our son (now 18 months old).
That said, be warned of a few things:
1-the effects on the pages are tough to activate by little hands--you really have to push hard to make them happen. But once you do, they're really great, easy to understand and add to the enjoyment of the story.
2-the on/off and volume buttons--are on the front and if your little one is manic about the remote or phone or any other button intensive thing, this is too much for them to resist. I simply put my hand over it to take it out of his head as soon as we start.
3-this is NOT a let your child play with by themselves kind of toy (as least not mine, not yet). It's meant to be an interactive experience between parent and child--in fact, there are even helpful hints on how to better use the book in the back of each book. The GO button must be pushed for each page, something I doubt most small children would grasp in order to keep the story going.
4-the clarity of speech in the stories is fantastic--the variety of voices and sounds is really quite remarkable considering the price. But it is not your voice. And, frankly, nothing compares to you reading to your child.
All in all, I think this is a fantastic toy to expose children to, learn with them, and then allow them to learn on their own--when they're ready.

I bought this for my daughter (9 months old) before a big plane trip when she was 8 months thinking it would keep her entertained while we were on the plane. Bad idea on my part. She is so active and busy all the time that she hated looking at this book. She rips out the little book all the time (in my opinion it comes out way to easy) and throws it. She also couldn't push hard enough on the book to make it do anything. I found I really had to poke it hard to get anything to play. I didn't take it back thinking she might like it later but everytime I take it out she moves right on to something else. She loves books so I was really surprised she didn't like this but she didn't at all. I would save my money and buy board books that you can read with your baby.
One good thing is that the pages really are tear resistant, she has tried many times to rip them apart and chew on them and besides for being a little bent they are still in good shape. If you are going to buy this save it for 1+ years.

I'd read a few reviews about this toy and the Fisher Price Power Touch toy (which is for older kids) and had just about decided to buy the Fisher Price one because of all the bad reviews this one had received here, when I saw this toy in a store. It didn't seem all that bad and, most importantly for me, it had a volume control button (my 9-month old daughter is easily frightened by loud noises).
I must say that I have to agree with all those people who said that this toy is GREAT! Firstly, I think people need to remember that the toy is for 6 to 36-month old babies / toddlers. So I believe the whole intention is for you to play the toy with your child and not leave them to try and figure out the instructions themselves or even push the pad themselves. Of course once they get closer to 3 years of age, they may be able to do it - all the better for them. Secondly, I don't think this is intended to replace reading of regular books to your child. On the other hand, not all parents have a natural knack for making story-reading a fun experience (e.g. making different voices or sounds, singing etc.) and so for those parents, this could be a God-send.
In fact, I would recommend that this toy be bought sooner rather than later (i.e. when the child is closer to 6 months old than 36 months old). This is so that you can begin playing this toy with your child before they reach their active stage. By the time they do reach that stage, they will have learnt that for this particular toy, they are required to sit still. (I regret that I did not get this toy for my daughter much earlier.

I really like the leap pad products for my children. However, this one needs allot of work. The pages are really flimsy and is difficult to operate. My 18 month old toddler wanted just to push the on/off button. They need to make several adjusments to this item. It was hard even for me to push the touch system. I am hoping that they will change this item around to be more user friendly to the specified age group. It is a great
idea but poorly made. The touch is nice and should be more sensitive or have less pages, or something to the fact that they don't have to pound on the pad to get a response. I know leap pad can do better. We took this item back to the store ASAP! The pillow in the back is a nice idea.

We were very excited about this product, but due to following things returned it.
1. The touch does not work, you have to push the finger for it to work
2. The ON-OFF button is in front and "fun" for the kids, so they tend to press that more often.
3. To start on the next page the kid has to tap on "Go", not intutive for 15 month old.
4. The paper book is easy to tear-off.
May be we will wait for LeapFrog to fix some of these problems, or better wait for our son to grow and use "My First LeapPad" instead of this product.
