LeapFrog's 'BlackBerry' for toddlers

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , | Posted on Friday, February 06, 2009

LeapFrog's recently unveiled BlackBerry-like Text & Learn toy was designed to let little toddlers play in a 'grown-up' way. It has a large screen and full QWERTY keyboard just like the popular phone and promises to teach basic spelling and computer skills to kids aged 3 to 6 years old.

The toy, which will cost around US$21, will go on sale in August, and is expected to be very popular with parents who want to teach their kids about modern technology, without endangering them with real electronic devices.

The toy's learning modes include letter matching, shape identification and keyboard navigation through a pretend ‘web browser’ mode which allows children to explore and navigate using the device’s keypad.

Parents can even connect to the online LeapFrog site for customized learning insights and to expand their ideas.
