Goodbye Little Girl

1 Sep

My little girl is growing up so fast. So much so that we are now considering buying her big girl games! Brian and I were talking about things to keep her entertained on car rides as well as at night when we are laying around together as family. She usually steals my phone and plays games and watches shows on it but I’m kind of tired of sharing it!


So we’ve decided to upgrade our little girl with her own electronic device made by leapfrog – but we are trying to decide between two choices. The cheaper version: The LeapFrog Explorer:


Or the more expensive route: The LeapPad2


What we really wanted was something travel friendly, easy to carry, not many pieces to lose, and something obviously entertaining for Emma. Right now we are leaning toward the more expensive one just because it seems to offer a bit more options.


Anyone have any opinions? I’d love to see what other people think of these items!


Love Always,

    My little one loves the Leapfrog Explorer…but I notice that the Kids Apps on the iphone keep her more engaged. It might almost be time for her to play Wii. She loves Super Mario…but I’m scared of letting her play with those types of games because she will learn to put down the schoolwork and pick up the game controller.

      My husband is an avid video gamer and he can’t wait for Emma to play games with him. I think it’s kind of cute but I also love the fact that the apps on my phone are more geared to her learning things. I’m thinking with either the Leapfrog Explorer or the LeapPad that it’ll be more educational than just fun!

      Knowing Brian – she’ll be playing with the Wii in no time 😉 Hopefully she’ll still think that educational games are fun too!

      She does! ❤ I'm looking at the same view right now beside me – just in pajamas 🙂 She'd love to show you how to use it but I'm not sure she'd share it very well either 😉 haha!
