What It Is

Bring books to life in a new way with LeapFrog's Tag Junior! This is a version of LeapFrog's highly successful Tag Reading System developed for younger kids who are pre-reading and who don't have the fine motor skills to operate the pen-like Tag.

Tag Junior encourages little ones who are just discovering books to build a lasting interest in them. This toddler-sized "book explorer" is powered by a small, sophisticated infrared camera that "reads" words and pictures printed on the special dot-patterned pages of the sturdy, child-friendly board books in the Tag Junior collection. The unit is an appealing, chunky little character, which is easy for young children to manipulate. Tag Junior works when children "stamp" its wide base anywhere on the pages of a Tag Junior book. Kids can hear a block of text read aloud or hear funny sound effects and songs embedded in the pictures! Books in the Tag Junior Library include ABC Animal Orchestra, The Backyardigans: Opposites, Dora the Explorer: 1-2-3 Dora!, and more.

Tag Junior is easy for kids to use, but it's also parent-friendly! Using the PC- and Mac-compatible LeapFrog Connect Application designed for Tag Junior, parents can download each book's audio, then drag and drop content onto the device-just like managing digital camera or MP3 files. Tag Junior can hold audio for up to five books at a time, and parents can choose to have Tag Junior greet their child by name! And best of all, parents can see the skills their children are practicing with Tag Junior by logging on to the LeapFrog Learning Path, a free online resource that gives personalized insights into their child's favorite books and activities, details about what skills their child is exploring during play, and ideas for other LeapFrog learning toys that match their child's interests.

Tag Junior comes with the unit and the first book. Additional books are sold separately.
