Leap Frog Touch Magic Rock n' Learn Party!

When the award winning maker of educational toys, LeapFrog, contacted me via MomSelect to host a Rock n' Learn party for their new Touch Magic line, I was excited!  My boys have all loved LeapFrog toys, and I appreciate when learning + fun are combined.  And if you know me, you know we love parties, so this was a great opportunity to invite our neighborhood friends over for some fun!

In the spirit of LeapFrog toys, especially the new Touch Magic Line, I wanted to keep the party colorful and bright, so I created this tablescape to greet our guests.  




We had star shaped sandwiches, pretty rainbow swirl balloons, monogram rainbow {inside} cupcakes {with the initials of our guests}, a little treat bag with a Leap Frog coupon, ABC cookies, and rainbow fruit salad which all tied in lovely with
 Leap Frog's Rock n' Learn theme.  




Now for the real fun, this Rock n' Learn guitar was quite the hit!!  The boys wanted to play with it when it arrived, but we waited until the party so we could all play together.  


The photos speak for themselves!!  


Once they got this little guitar in their hands, rockstars were made!  


Learning through music is so fun and our boys are always singing songs.  
This guitar has some of their favorites like Itsy Bitsy Spider and If You're Happy and You Know It.  They quickly learned how to strum and add their own sounds too.  Despite how much all of our guests adored the guitars, they all took turns rather {to my surprise} nicely!

When one plays the guitar, another can sing, tap, etc. and they formed their own little band.
Our homemade tambourines kept everyone in on the fun.  

I just had to include this photo, these two fair haired boys are not brothers, but they look so much alike and they are making the exact same face, too cute.  
They are starting their own neighborhood band!  

Even this little cutie pie got in on the action!! 

From my perspective and our parent guests, we really like how the guitars wipe clean.  I am big on being able to clean toys especially with four little boys in our home playing with the same toys.  So far the guitar seems quite durable too, we are hard on things.  The only caution would be to do what we always should and supervise your children with the guitar strap.  Mine had no problem with it, and it really is for preschoolers, 
even though little ones enjoy it too.  

Next up was this same new touch magic technology learning bus.  

The learning bus was also adored.  The boys enjoyed finding their letters and the sounds they made.  I like how the pictures and words are well-known and common.  Some ABC toys use words that aren't as familiar and it makes it more difficult.  One of the songs is Wheels on the Bus, which my boys absolutely love, pretty much their all-time favorite.  The three modes learning, letter exploration, and music keep it interesting and fun.  

I also very much believe that it is never too early to introduce letters to your children, especially when it is done in an exciting, interactive way.  The learning bus is great to play with your kids, and for them to play together.  Early letter recognition, letter sounds, all play into reading skills.  I have really liked the LeapFrog range with letter recognition, and have used their toys with my oldest who is now seven and reading a few grades ahead.  There were a lot of factors that played into reading early of course, and creative tools like these are so helpful!  



Again, the bus is flat, easy to wipe off {as you can see they were playing during our lunch} and easy to use.  

Both the Touch Magic Rockin' Guitar and Learning bus are available at major retailers.  On a recent trip to one of our favorites, Target, we saw the new Touch Magic toys displayed which includes a Counting Train in it's lineup.  Take a peek the next time your out and see what your little learners think!!  

Thank you kindly Leap Frog and Mom Select, we are grateful for the opportunity!!
