My daughter's favorite toy! Jun 01, 2006
By Christie D. Brown
My best friend asked me what to get my daughter for her first birthday and I recommended this. I had seen it in the store and thought it looked great, but then I read the reviews and became a little nervous.
Then it arrived - and it's wonderful!!! It is definitely intended to be an interactive toy with an adult or older sibling. But if you can make time to read a book to your little one, then you can make time for this toy for a special experience for them. I noticed my daughter's vocabulary improving almost immediately. She wanted to repeat everything she heard. She talked back to it, she tapped on it with her hands... and no matter how many times I put it away in her room, she crawls in and drags it right back out.
Some of the concerning things I should address that I read:
- The pages are flimsy... I completely disagree. They do wrinkle a bit, but they don't tear and they're drool-proof, which is a bonus for me.
- The pad is difficult to activate and push... quite the contrary... my daughter taps her little hands all over the pads and is rewarded by all sorts of sounds and activities. She doesn't need me... but we have fun together anyway.
- The on/off button is too accessible to little hands... you have to hold the off button for quite a while before it actually turns off, so no chance of her accidentally interrupting the story.
- It is too loud... the volume controls are an awesome feature... It's only as loud as you want it to be.
In short, I adore this toy, but not near as much as my daughter does. I highly, highly recommend it. For those who wrote such negative reviews, I have to wonder what is is exactly they were looking for in a toy. Please remember that its a toy... a fantastic toy, but still just a toy.

Great for over 18 mths Nov 05, 2004
My daughter got this for her first birthday. She was not interested in it in the least! But at around 18 mths, she started getting interested in it. First I would sit with her and we would do it together learning the different buttons to push. And now she is almost 2 and she absolutly loves it. She especially likes the ones where they sing to her. But Every time you turn it off it looses the setting that you were on, which can be frustating because each setting says slightly different things. This concept is harder to explan to her. She understand to push the green go circle at every page, but having her push some other button a couple of times it harder for her to remember. Overall I would say wait on this untill your child is at least 18mths old to purchase this.

doesn't hold baby's interest Oct 19, 2004
By Mother of two
I got this for my 14 month old daughter so that she would have something to play with while her 4 year old brother was playing with his My First Leappad (they always want the same toy at the same time, no matter what age it's intended for). Unfortunately, the First Touch Leappad doesn't interest her the way her brother's Leappad does; I even tried some different books (the one with the photos of animals seems best of the ones we tried, while my 4-yr. old likes the Little Engine one). Maybe she'll grow into it, as other reviewers have suggested. On the plus side, the pages are much sturdier than they seemed at first.
Also, I've discovered that the backpack for the My First Leappad will fit the books and cartridges for the Little Touch Leappad, and makes for much handier storage than those big plastic "sleeves", so I'm going to order a backpack for my daughter now.

Not age appropriate Jul 24, 2004
By Lisa Spicer
Well, we just got this toy for our 11 month old - who is borderline obsessive about books. On the surface, this looked to be an ideal toy for her, but so far we are disappointed.
While she will spend up to a half hour quietly flipping through board books, this toy held no interest for her. As other reviewers point out, the concept of pushing objects on a flat page (and pushing HARD) is lost on my little one. I won't even go into the GO button function. Since she knows how to make board books "work" on her own, she is less than enthusiastic about sitting on my lap and going through it with me.
I spoke with a friend of mine who's baby is a bit older (20 months) and she is just now getting to the point of handling this toy.
All and all, I'm planning on putting this away and hoping to bring it out to a better reception in about a year.

Wait for your baby to grow into it! Sep 28, 2004
By Ainsley's mommy
We got this for my daughter for Christmas when she was 13 months old, and as the other reviewers stated, it didn't hold much interest. Now, at 22 months old she LOVES it. She can put the cartridges and the books in by herself (we put coordinating stickers on the books and cartridges) and from watching me, she now hits the GO button on her own. It is a wonderful toy, but wait a bit for your child to grow into it.
