With the holidays coming I thought I would start providing some product reviews on some great toys for this holiday gift giving season. I was lucky enough to receive a Fisher-Price New Learn Through Music TouchPad for my kids to review. Now most devices are touch screen and considering how much my kids love to play with my iPod Touch I knew they would enjoy playing with this.
Even the dog was getting in to the action.
Learn through Music offers a unique approach to preschool curriculum, offering a fun mix of music, storytelling, interactive game play, and contextual curriculum. There are lots of educational games to play: find and explore, identify the pattern, compare & contrast, follow the sequence, listening to direction, logic and memory.
The new TouchPad features a Touch-sensitive screen - just touch the screen for interactive play and to move to the next frame. Press the MUSIC key to play a song; press the KARAOKE key, and it plays music for a sing-a-long! Answer a random question by pressing the QUESTION key; the SECRET SPOT reveals a hidden secret! Press the MINI GAME key to activate a bonus game, and press the HOME key to return you to the first screen. Features a sleek new portable design, an even larger screen with more touch points, a microphone for sing-along learning, and a headphone jack for quiet play. Touch the screen for your own music and light show! A fun world of adventure in this easy to use children’s electronic learning aid. Included is one cartridge: Leo and Friends Alphabet Museum and 4 “AA” batteries.
There are others available including Dora for around $19.99.
Lauren loves singing so this is great for her! She loves the microphone.
