Leapfrog My Pal Scout £9.99 @ Amazon
If ignore my loathing for electrical toys that beep and sing a me, then I can safely say that I'm a bit of a fan of LeapFrog toys; you really won't go wrong with anything Leapfrog if you're looking for a present for someone little.
Their educational value is fantastic; their fun value is just as good and their build quality and value for money is excellent. Here's what the Leapfrog My Pal Scout has to offer whoever you're thinking about buying this for...
My Pal Scout is a rather adorable little interactive puppy who connects to the computer; you can tailor him to the desires and wishes of your child through music customisation and personalise learning by programming My Pal Scout with your child's name, favourite food, animal and colour.
Leapfrog My Pal Scout comes with five, pre-loaded songs. If your little one is a bit of a music fan for whom five songs just isn't going to be enough, you can download more learning tunes and lullabies from an online list of 30 songs. His learning skills include first words, daily routines, early number sense, feelings and emotions, and animals.
Leapfrog My Pal Scout has icons on his paws which indicate what each one does. There's an activities paw - Scout will talk to your child about their favourite things, count hiccups and play pretend games. One paw plays daytime music and another the night time lullabies (My Pal Scout will play up to 10 minutes of these to lull your child off to sleep) and the last paw is the power off paw.
My Pal Scout speaks with a British voice, comes with the 3xAA batteries he needs and is recommended for children who are six months or older.
