It’s time to spread some holiday cheer and a little bit of education with our 2019 Holiday Toy Gift Guide.

We all know that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and buying gifts for the kids in your life shouldn’t stress you out!

We are BIG fans of LeapFrog & VTech. Not only are they fun to play with, but most of the toys are educational and help children learn through touch and play.

I’ve compiled a list of the latest educational toys from LeapFrog and Vtech that will make both you and your children happy.

Here’s our 2019 Holiday Toy Gift Guide:

LeapFrog RockIt Twist

First,  the new Rockit Twist from LeapFrog Canada is the latest addition to the LeapFrog family. The cool rotatable gaming system doesn’t need WIFI so kids can play anywhere! We recently used it on the airplane and it helped keep Abel entertained for the entire flight.

Your kids can twist, turn, play and learn with the RockIt Twist rotatable, single-player game system. It also gives you the option to create three separate profiles, just in case! They can play 12 games in a cool, new way using four sides of colorful, light-up controls (buttons, spinners, dials, switches, and a D-pad).

The LeapFrog Rockit Twist comes in two different colours ( Green & Purple). It is currently on sale at Walmart Canada for $ 49.99.

LeapFrog LeapBuilders ABC Smart House

Second, another great toy by LeapFrog is the LeapFrog LeapBuilders ABC Smart House.  It helps your child build, create and learn with its interactive 61-piece house-themed block set. Kids can build using the easy-to-hold building blocks and double-sided learning blocks that feature letters. My kids love using this toy to build and create!

It also works with other LeapBuilders sets (sold separately) and is currently on sale for $29.97.

If you’re looking to jumpstart your child’s learning, then the LeapFrog LeapPad Academy is the perfect gift.

This learning tablet is preloaded with more than 20 educator-approved apps. In addition, it helps teach math, reading, writing, coding, problem-solving and creativity skills!

The best part? The tablet has a tough bumper with a built-in kickstand and a 7″ shatter-safe screen.

Note, we have the older version but it still works just as great!

Why LeapFrog Academy is the Best Alternative

VTech Explore & Write Activity Desk

One of my personal favs is this Vtech Explore and Write Activity desk.

I love how it transforms from a desk into an easel and chalkboard with extra storage for art supplies. We used it to help Abel practice spelling his name before he started kindergarten.  As a result, his teacher was impressed by his writing abilities at such a young age!

It also features an interactive desktop and five pages to explore that are filled with engaging content including letters, numbers, music, colors and more.

You’re in luck because it is currently on sale for $59.97.

VTech Stroll & Discover Activity Walker

Looking for a toy that grows with your little one? Then the VTech Stroll & Discover Activity Walker is calling your name! From floor play to first steps, the Stroll & Discover Activity Walker has an easy-to-remove activity panel is great for floor play.

This toy is a great one to start your VTech collection with 😀 Currently $39.88 at Walmart Canada!

VTech Mix & Match-a-Saurus

Last and certainly not least, this new addition to the VTech family is the Mix& Match-a-Saurus. This interactive dino has my boys roaring, laughing and dancing up a storm!

With three emotion tiles (happy, angry, sleepy), three music tiles (hip hop, ballet, marching) and three character tiles (monster, dino, robot) there are over 27 combinations to be made.⁣⁣ Experimenting with emotion tiles helps kids build social and emotional skills!
