I am excited to do a review of a toy for Xavier. I figured with Christmas coming soon everyone will be on the look out for toys. Although LeapFrog My Pal Scout is not brand new it is a great toy for your little one.
The LeapFrog My Pal Scout is for ages 6 months to 36 months. It is an interactive toy that you can customize to fit your child.You can also get LeapFrog My Pal Violet if you would like the girl toy.
Scout hooks to your computer through a usb port and cable and lets you customize music, your child's name, favorite food, animal and color as well as choose from 30 different songs.
The best part is this toy sells for only $19.99 at Toys R Us and other retailers.
I opened the Scout before giving it to Xavier to play with and personalized it. I am very tech savvy but it still was extremely easy. The cord is right with the box on the back of Scout and it is a standard mini usb to regular usb cord (in case you lose the one they give you). It hooked right up to my computer and downloaded the software in less then five minutes. It was easy to follow along to personalize. I was even impressed that when you type in your child's name they give you different pronunciation options. They pronounced Xavier correctly. ( His name is pronounced X zavier). Also, you get to add your child's favorite, color, animal and food. There are a lot of options. They you get to pick five songs from the game category, five from the sing a long category and five for the lullaby category. There were plenty to choose from and you can always change and update when you get sick of them. I thought that was a great idea. He has a couple musical toys that I am already sick of listening to the same thing over and over so it is nice to have an option to switch it up. Simply unplug and tuck the box into Scout and you are done.
As for my opinion this toy is fantastic! Certainly worth the $19.99. I love that it plays many different songs and different games so I do not have to hear the same thing over and over and even if I ever do get sick of them you can always change them. I also like that this is a toy that Xavier can have for a while and grow with. I can already tell that he will just keep getting more and more out of this toy as he gets older. I highly recommend you get a LeapFrog My Pal Scout or Violet for your child it is well worth the investment.
