Learning Through Interactive Play

LeapFrog Learning Path toys help your child learn through play. With the Peek-a-Shoe Talking Octopus, you can see the skills your child is building as she or he figures out where the balls go, identifies numbers and practices basic counting to five, and plays music. Kids are sure to be charmed by the adorable purple octopus and his brightly colored snap-on shoes, which invite them to touch, lift, press, and play.

Ball-Drop Fun and Peek-a-Boo Surprises

A winner of the 2011 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Toy Award, the Peek-a-Shoe Talking Octopus helps toddlers and younger preschoolers learn and understand more about the world. Children build number recognition skills as they lift each shoe and hear its number spoken aloud. Fun learning songs help kids explore number order and counting, while the five brightly colored shoes expose them to color naming and recognition as they lift the shoes to play peek-a-boo.

Dropping the balls into the Octopus's hat or arm and lifting the shoes to find them helps children build hand-eye coordination and both gross and fine motor skills.

Quick and Easy Setup and Operation

The purple octopus comes partially pre-assembled. Parents will need to snap on the five hard plastic shoes and use a Philips screwdriver to put in the batteries.

Operation is equally straightforward. A sliding switch on the blue center band turns on the octopus, controls volume, and then turns him off when play is done. The switch on the far left lets players choose between counting and color modes. The big blue music button between the switches plays two lyrical songs ("Sea Creatures Song" and "I'm an Octopus, I Love to Count to Eight") and four instrumental tunes. The tentacle serves as a ball holder for two balls. When play is done, you can store the other balls under the shoes so they're ready to go next time.

Auto Shutoff

To help save battery power, the octopus will turn off automatically after a period of inactivity.

What's in the Box

Octopus, five shoes, five balls, and instructions.

This toy really excited me when I first saw it, because it's a really great concept. Unfortunately, the LeapFrog Peek-A-Shoe may actually do our little girl more harm than good. I say that because unless you: 1. Have it on a perfectly flat surface. 2. Drop just one ball in very carefully. 3. Wait patiently for the right time to drop the next ball, it won't necessarily give the correct information. For example, when it congratulates your child for pulling a ball out from under the red shoe when they actually lifted the yellow one. This happens A LOT! And forget about this getting even 1/4 of the answers right if you set it on carpet, as about any little movement on any individual shoe will set it off.

Also, as mentioned by others, it's a very flimsy toy. Very light, very thin, and I have my doubts that it will last long with our 18-month old. I might also note that the photos on the box are a huge misrepresentation. They make the toy look huge next to the child, and it's not

My 1 year old likes to drop the balls into the two holes and listen to the songs, but the design and stability are poor. The shoes come off with a gentle tug. The toy also falls back easily because the balance is all on the front. I think Leap Frog is losing it's previously good reputation by producing junk like this and using the same recorded voices.

This is a great concept, but fails in design. The shoes pop on and my son just pulls them off all the time with ease. It says you can store the balls inside but they just fall into the shoes, so when you lift the octopus to store it, or if you knock it the balls just spill all over. If you even slightly tip the whole toy while playing with it; it can tell you that you've looked under the wrong shoe while you did look under the correct one. I think this is the first toy I've ever been disappointed with from Leapfrog.

purchased this toy for my soon to be 6 month old son for christmas. He likes to look at the toy and touch it. He's probably still too young to understand what to do, but my 4 year old son actually has fun playing with this toy as well. The shoes do NOT come off. Ours doesnt anyway. My son lifts them up pretty fast and they always stay on. I do have to say though that for a older kid they will notice where the ball lands cause when the ball hits the bottom it shakes the shoe a little. So, when my son wants me to play this with him when one of us drops the ball down the person who has to look for the ball turns there head so you cant see the ball hit the shoe. Of course my 6 months old will not pick up on this until he gets older.
But I think its a cute toy and sturdy. I guess you have to make sure you are putting the shoes on the right way, cause we have no problems with ours at all. It's a fun toy for little ones. With my 4 year old son we just turn the toy off and play with the toy without listening to the octopus talk.

I think it has been pointed out by other users--the shoes do come off quite easy. Other than that, this toy is great! My son, who is 18 months, absolutely loves it. He doesn't really understand what the octopus says, be he does enjoy looking for the balls under the shoes.

Octopus shoes frequently fall off when turned over or tipped over. Other toys can get lodged into this toy and it can be difficult to remove them. Overall this is a fun toy with lots of noises and music. Fun for kids who like to play guessing games and peek-a-boo, etc. The toy is interactive and colorful with 5 different color balls. My 2 year old can get her hand into the top and in through the shoe parts and gets her hand stuck if she tries to pull things out. I definitely recommend supervising kids while playing with this toy.

I bought this for my 1 year old's birthday. My biggest gripe is that other balls, like Fisher Price and V-tech brands won't fit in this and gets lodged. To un-lodge them I have to get a pen or a spatula, turn it over and push the ball back into octopus, then twist and turn in until it comes back out of his hat. Which makes sense from LeapFrog's point of view, why make it accessible to other companies and then maybe you'd but cheaper replacement balls from them. But from my point of view it is annoying because my 1 year old doesn't understand that only certain balls will fit. He gets frustrated by it, also, if he picks it up and drops it, the little hoof/shoe things pop off. I would recommend to the company to make the hole in his hat the same size as the balls that will fit through the bottom.

At one year, this is a little overwhelming. If sitting, it's hard to use because of the height. As the child ages, it becomes more fun and when standing is easier to use. If seated, the child needs some height to reach the openings for the balls. The puzzle of where the balls went becomes challenging after he or she can insert the balls into the openings. It definitely is a toy that the child will use for a long period of time as it requires several steps to enjoy it completely.
