LeapReader "Ready, Set, Read & Write" Party!

We were lucky enough to be selected to host a LeapReader "Ready, Set, Read & Write" MommyParty through MomSelect. I received free LeapFrog products in order to host the LeapFrog sponsored MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own.

We are old pros when it comes to using the LeapFrog Tag system. Savannah got this from Santa a few years ago, and it has gotten a lot of use. Before she could read, and after I was done reading stories to her before bed...she would turn on her Tag, and listen to stories until she fell asleep.
We figured out quickly that we love the LeapReader just as much as our Tag...maybe even more. When we first started playing with it Devin got hooked on the music it has loaded on it. So much so he wanted to show you, and sing one of the songs for you. {If you listen closely you can hear Bina join in at the end too!} 
I have been trying to do little preschool type things with Devin at home, and this has been a useful tool. Devin is at a stage where he has a hard time sitting and concentrating, but the LeapReader makes it fun to learn. He has been able to sit for hours.
I thought that Savannah would be too old for this, but it turns out they have so many fun word games that it can still be fun for her to work on spelling, rhyming, and handwriting. 
Shall we talk about how awesome the handwriting paper is? The LeapReader works like a pencil on the paper! It is magic. I was impressed to put it mildly. It helps you learn to write your letters by using stroke guidance, and you also learn proper stroke order. It has been fun to watch Devin's handwriting take off. 
Should I go on people? Like it doesn't require batteries, just plug it in to the computer. Or that all the books we have already for the Tag got loaded on to the LeapReader and are totally compatible.

I kept trying to come up with things we didn't like about the LeapReader, because I wanted to be really honest with our review...but I really couldn't think of one thing. 

Yes, it is that cool!

Is it weird that I sort of want one? They need to make really big kid versions. :)
