Product Description

Get in the learning groove with this delightful drum.

Amazon.com

Make your youngster's learning experience more upbeat with the LeapFrog Learn and Groove Alphabet Drum alphabet drum. Each tap of this drum introduces baby to the alphabet and improves vocabulary in both English and Spanish. Engaging music and interactive play sharpen motor skills as baby learns to tap, crawl, and dance. It features three delightful learning modes, including Alphabet, Dance Along, and Music Play. Babies quickly catch on to cause and effect, as each tap rewards them with lights, letters, and music. Music Play mode lets the child freely explore music, fostering open-ended play and creative movement. And this drum's lively, roll-along song teaches them to crawl after the drum. Ideal for children ages six months to three years, this stimulating toy entertains and educates for hours.

The Beat Goes On
The Alphabet Drum is built to withstand the throws and whacks from typical toddler handling. Parents will appreciate the volume control as it keeps the music at an enjoyable level. To prolong battery life, the drum shuts off if it hasn't been used for awhile. Plus, at approximately 8 inches tall, it helps babies learn to sit up on their own. Both the English and Spanish voices of the Alphabet Drum are audible and easy to understand. Bright colors, uplifting music, and a fun design make this a favorite in any child's toy box.

Award-Winning Features
It is no surprise that the LeapFrog Alphabet Drum was a winner of the 2006 iParenting Media Greatest Products Award. This drum teaches language, music, and motor skills as a strong foundation for the child's future. Children love to dance, roll it around, or chase after it, and as a versatile toy, it can be played with through multiple development stages.

What's in the Box
LeapFrog drum and 3 AA batteries.



This toy drum improves vocabulary in both English and Spanish, while delivering fun songs, lights and sound effects.

This toy seemed like a great idea and I bought it for my 1 year son with great expectations. It is a small drum, that lights up and plays music and sounds when tapped. My son loves to tap on the table, so it seemed like the perfect gift for him. Unfortunately, I was disapointed due to some serious design flaws.

The drum has 3 different playing modes: Alphabet mode, music mode and dancing mode. On alphabet mode, every time it is tapped upon, it displays a letter of the alphabet while speaking it loud, in order. On music mode, it plays music and rhythmic lights, inviting the kid to tap on the drum and in dancing mode, it tries to suggest movement to the kid with voice commands and pictures (clap your hands, hit the drum, etc).

The drum has 2 language settings (English or Spanish) and also a volume control (low and high settings). The high setting is not very loud.

Unlike some other reviewers say, this drum does not teach counting. They probably refer to an older drum model from leapfrog (look for leapfrog learning drum here on amazon). This one only teaches the alphabet.

In all, this seemed a great idea to me. The drums' reaction to the child movements would encourage tapping on it, teaching cause/effect relationship. I did not care much about the alphabet as my son is too young for that, but didn't mind if he got some introduction to it anyway.

So, what are the design flaws?

Well, to start, the sound made by the drum when hit is very low. On music and dancing mode, you can barely hear it as it is completely shaded by the background music, which is played independently of hitting the drum.

My recently one year old twin grandsons love this toy. It far exceeded my expectaions. The graphics are great both for the alphabet and the numbers and they enjoy the dancing figure with the music. They love music and really do learn and groove with this interactive toy. The age guidelines on this toy are appropriate and I look forward to them combining the drum with their maracas as they grow and become increasingly creative with these toys.

I bought this drum for my 7 month old and he enjoys it quite a bit. It seems to have a very repetetive program in the drum and music modes (a 7 month old can't tell the difference, but I would expect that an older child would). Overall it's pretty nice and the volume control is especially appreciated.

I got this for my daughter and she loves it. She likes to roll it around on the floor and hit/kick it. She was a little under 6 months old when I got it and was having a little hard time sitting up (no problem crawling though), and after having this toy, she got sitting up down pat within a couple of days. It allowed her to lean on it for support while she played it. Plus, it encouraged her to sit up.

She loves pounding on it with her hands for quite some time. Like one other reviewer said, I do wish that you could hear the drumming that the child actually makes a little better. I wish that there was a mode where it only made a sound when you "drummed" on it, but oh well... can't have everything.

Her daddy loves it too. They spend a lot of time after he gets off work playing with the drum and dancing to the music. They have gotten quite a bit of quality "Daddy-Baby" time in.

It is also nice that it shuts off when it hasn't been moved for quite some time. I am sure this really has saved on some batteries. It has some type of sensor in it that can tell if the drum is on its side or if it is upright. If it is on its side and it rolls a little bit, it kicks on, but that isn't a problem. It helps keep the baby interested in it when she bumps it. Also, if it is on its side, it functions differently in the modes. For example, if it is in the "A-B-C" mode, then when it is on its side, it works more like a normal drum. I guess the thinking is if it is on its side, then the child can't see the lights to learn the ABC and is using it more like a drum tucked underneath their arm. I don't know, but just a guess.

I also love the volume. The soft is pretty soft where you can easily talk over it and it is more like background noise.

We bought this drum for our baby. She is now nine months old and loves to beat on the walls/doors at home, therefore, we thought she needed a drum. This drum teaches alphabets while you hit it (in English and Spanish). It is not very loud and won't drive you crazy. Christmas has not come yet, but we have already been playing with it, and she absolutely loves it! If you want a toy that your child will play with instead of only playing with the box it came in - this is the one (especially if your child likes to hit things like mine does).

This is a cute and wonderful tool for babies and toddlers. The age specifies 6 mo. and older; however, I believe it is a little too advance for 6 month-year olds. The item should probably change that to 1-yr and older instead. I also love that batteries are included- in so many cases, you have to purchase the batteries first.
