LeapFrog is AWESOME. We got sneak preview of the LEAPFROG’s ‘SCOUT’S ABC GARDEN’ APP FOR iPHONE®, iPOD TOUCH® AND iPAD™ and let me tell you, LeapFrog continues to impress.
It didn’t take long after personalizing this little app (one of my favorite things about LeapFrog) for the giggles to begin. Picking either pal Playful Scout or Loveable Violet, my child went on a learning adventure in the alphabet garden. Lots of fun songs, activities and interaction while learning the alphabet.
One of my favorite features? That once I enter my son’s information in the “Parent Zone” it’s password protected so he can’t change anything (and believe me, he does!) So many apps don’t have this, and if you know anything about toddlers and iPhones, you know what an awesome feature this is.
If you’re familiar with My Pal Scout or My Pal Violet, you will recognize some of the songs in the app, and your pal will even spell your name – so fun! In fact, when I was setting it up, that’s what got my son’s attention was when he heard Scout saying his name via my iPhone. ☺
This new app from LeapFrog is a winner in my book, and I hope it’s the first of many. I’m excited to keep checking it out!
Note that you do need to connect your apple device to the internet to set up all the features.

Swipe. Tap. Fun!
With the ‘Scout’s ABC Garden’ app kids can explore Scout’s garden by touching and triggering fun and delightful sounds and animations like interactive clouds, bubbles, ticklish gophers, and Scout and Violet’s virtual radio that plays traditional kid-favorite songs. Kids can even rub Scout’s or Violet’s belly to hear a song with their name, or grow their own letter garden.
Other key aspects of the app include:
• A is for Achievement. The app is customized to each child’s level of learning, helping every child learn about letters and sounds at his or her own pace.
• B is for Bragging. Alerted when learning happens, proud parents can also share in their child’s learning achievements. With each accomplished goal, not only does the child receive a badge or trophy, but parents are alerted to their child’s achievement which they can then celebrate and share via social channels, including Facebook.
• C is for Customization. A main ingredient of the app’s appeal is its deep level of personalization. With the capacity to hold up to three profiles, a parent can customize the app for different children, including their favorite foods, colors and animals, so each can experience unique gameplay.
The ‘Scout’s ABC Garden’ app is available for $3.99 from the App Store on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
