I dug up Bruce’s old LeapPad for Jenna this morning, to see what would happen. I had bought the whole system, three boxes and the LeapPad, for $30 at a Fred Meyer several years ago. I couldn’t find an identical package online, but I think it is similar to this:
It’s interesting because it has all of the characters as the Letter Factory and Talking Words Factory videos. There’s Leap, Lilly, Professor Quiggley, and the Word Bammer. They must have been meant to be used together.
It’s hard to tell how effective all of this will be with Jenna, who is currently 23 months old. We were having a really special moment together when I got it all out, but then Bruce came in with his walkie talkies and caused a bit of a distraction. I had to have a stern talk with him about not interrupting his sister’s learning time. So, I’ll try again tomorrow when Jenna’s ready to pay attention again.
