LeapFrog Announces Availability of New Infant and Preschool Learning Toys
Chicago – LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc., a leader in innovative educational toys for children, today announced the availability of new additions to its award-winning infant and preschool lines. These engaging pretend-play toys include the Clean Sweep Learning Caddy™, a Toy of the Year Award Finalist in the Preschool category, and Ironing Time Learning Set™.
"Our new pretend-play learning caddy and ironing set toys are perfect for kids who love to be big helpers," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America, LeapFrog's parent company. "Kids can participate in activities they see their parents doing, while learning about letters, colors and numbers in a fun hands-on way."
The interactive Clean Sweep Learning Caddy comes with cleaning tools and a delightful bucket that lights up and sings. Playful learning modes help little ones discover colors, counting, directions and more, plus they can boogie to hilarious cleaning commands and hear funny squirting sound effects. For even more role-play fun, the Ironing Time Learning Set helps kids learn about shapes, colors and counting through engaging learning activities. The light-up, motion-activated iron plays songs, silly phrases and sound effects as kids iron the included play clothes.
