Can I let you in on a little secret? LeapFrog Academy™ has been a complete lifesaver for me.

In the past couple of weeks, Jayden has gone back to school, Miguel started working at a new hotel, and I entered a new chapter of motherhood. Let me tell you, staying at home with two littles is not for the faint of heart, and to be honest, you can’t do it alone.

Heres Why LeapFrog Academy Is the Best Alternative

Over the summer, Abel grew up. He started talking, forming complete sentences and started verbalizing his emotions. So naturally, as any mom would, I want to encourage his independence and growth at home. However, I was finding it difficult and worried that he was having too much screen time. Enter LeapFrog Academy.

LeapFrog Academy™ is an online guided learning program comprised of a series of learning adventures, designed for kids in preschool through the first grade (ages 3-9). It promotes reading, math, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning, and creativity.

Abel has recently become obsessed with colouring, painting, and taking pictures. With LeapFrog Academy, he is able to do all three! Plus side? I don’t need to clean up any messes. #winning

A Few Things You Should Know About LeapFrog Academy

  • Through the My Learning Lab, LeapFrog Academy™ responds to each child’s progress, so as the child plays and learns. Then the program automatically serves up new content based on their learning level.
  • It delivers age-appropriate lessons developed by LeapFrog Educational Experts, supported by more than 1,000 activities covering a wide variety of subjects and skills.
  • It comes preloaded on the new LeapFrog Epic™ Academy Edition (available now) with a free 3-month trial and $7.99/month afterward.
  • LeapFrog Academy™ is available for download on a computer desktop, or tablets via the web, for iOS and Android for a subscription price of $9.99/month (CDN) with a free 1-month trial.

I’m extremely impressed on how far LeapFrog has come with their learning and educational toys. If you’re looking for an alternative to interactive learning then I highly recommend LeapFrog Academy™. The LeapFrog Epic™ tablet is available at Toys R Us, Amazon, and Walmart.

It’s perfect for any toddler and mom duo looking to grow and learn together!

  1. It’s amazing how quickly and easily these little minds pick up on technology. This looks like a great way to supplement their learning (and make it fun too)!

  2. Awe Abel! He’s growing up! This LeapFrog will be a life saver I’m sure. Especially when you just need ‘two minutes’ to do something with baby or have a shower.

    This is brilliant! With school being so technology based this is going to give little ones an upper hand before starting school. I need to invest in one for sure!
