Touch Magic Counting Train Review (LeapFrog)

What It Is

LeapFrog's Touch Magic line brings touch technology to preschool toys. The Touch Magic products recognize every tap, touch, and swipe to bring each toy to life. The Touch Magic Counting Train encourages kids to practice number recognition and counting skills with 10 animal characters and numbers 1–20. In Explore Mode, kids can touch animals, numbers, and objects to hear more information about the item and music. In Music Mode, kids can customize their own version of "Old MacDonald" by selecting which characters, fruits, and vegetables to include in the song. Kids can also tap any of the number keys to hear musical notes play. In Game Mode, kids play a seek-and-find game to find sets of objects representing a particular number and animals that makes the given sound.

Is It Fun?

The Touch Magic Counting Train is a fun and interactive way to reinforce numbers and counting in preschoolers. With three ways to play and lots of touchpoints, this toy has a lot to keep kids engaged. Kids will like choosing what animals—and fruits and veggies—to include in "Old MacDonald." It allows a level of silliness that's particularly appealing to kids at this age.

Who It’s For

The Touch Magic Counting Train is for ages 2 and up.
