Leap Frog My Own Story Pad Review

We are HUGE Leap Frog fans around here! We love how their toys are fun and educational!  I am a teacher and it is important to me that my kids are learning their basics! 
So when I heard about the Leap Frog My Own Story Time Pad... 
I was so excited for my kids to check it out!

When it arrived at our house, my 3 year son saw the Leap Frog packaging and knew it was something for him.
"Look Mommy! A new toy for ME!"  
He could not wait for me to get it out of the box.

My Own Story Time Pad is great for Pre-schooler/pre-readers.  It lets you customize it with your child's name, favorite color, favorite food, and favorite animal.  It also lets you pick songs and stories that you know your child will love so it is sure to be a hit! Hooking up the story pad to your computer to personalize is easy.
My son got right down to business playing with his Story Time Pad.  I have had a hard time getting him to stop.  At night before he goes to bed he asks "When I wake up, can I play with my story pad?"
The Leap Frog My Own Story Time Pad is appropriate for children ages 2 and up. 
It has 4 main functions:
Story time- Listen to stories with Scout and Friends and see them come to life.  The stories introduce listening and reading comprehension, social skills and more!
Messages:  You can personalize e-mail messages to send to your child!  This adds a sense of dramatic play for your child that help with pre-reading skills
Music: You child and sing and play along with familiar songs!  Music encourages creativity.  Your get to pick what songs play so you know you child is sure to love them! 
ABC Alphabet: Your child can press the letter keys to hear the different sounds.  When the first letter of your child's name is pressed a special animated sequence is played!
My son's favorite part is the music and the e-mail!  
He walks around the house saying "I am going to check my e-mail now!" 
My favorite part is while he is playing he is also learning!

It is great toy to bring along in the car or it would be great to bring along to Dr. visits as a distraction in the waiting room.  It also works as a good quite time activity.

My 18 month old Daughter was very interested in this toy too since her big brother loves it so much!
Can you see the "I just took this from my brother" look in her eyes?

But in the end, her brother was happy to show her how it worked!  It is never to early to start learning your letters and sounds! 
Leap Frog My Own Story Time Pad would make a wonderful Christmas gift!
