This is one of my favorite baby products. The LeapPad Little Touch is a fun way to instill a love of books in your little one. It is labeled for ages 9 months thorugh three years old, but I began to use it as soon as my baby was able to sit up. She didn't really "get it" at that point, but if you are going to be reading to them anyway, this is a neat way to introduce a new way to do it. The LeapPad comes with a book and two activity cards, so the price you pay for the unit is really reasonable. The LeapPad is made of durable plastic, and it has a lap pillow to make it easier for your child when they play with it alone. There is an easy to use carrying handle, too, because it can be a bit bulky for a small child. You can buy extra books for your LeapPad, and they are all themed to teach skills for toddlers. Each book has 3 settings to grow with your child, and they are made of tear-resistant paper, making it difficult for a rough little one to win the battle to destroy. I find it to be a great tool to take on the road to entertain little ones. I find that it greatly decreases the amount of times someone asks "Are we there yet?" which can make a big difference in the overall stress level of travelling. In all, a great product for learning and playing together!
