Review: LeapFrog Baby Counting Pal and the Learning Friend Tad

Published 01:00 am

Many children's toys these days are created to meet the environmental needs of children based on age and child's abilities. For infants from birth to 18 months of age, the LeapFrog Baby Counting Pal Plush is a great toy for influencing cognitive development.

This toy has buttons for the numbers 1-5, which state the name of each number when pressed. It also has buttons on the legs of the caterpillar, which display animals and can play various sounds and songs. For the mentioned age group, this toy can stimulate secondary circular reactions and the coordination of secondary schemes.

Between about 4-8 months of age, the child would probably discover the features of the toy by chance, and would continue to press the buttons to produce results. By about 8-12 months of age, this toy can help stimulate learned behavior in the child, as he/she can anticipate what each button does and press the desired one.

Also, between 9-18 months of age, the child can visually and verbally learn the numbers 1-5, as during this period, the child begins to imitate sounds and eventually speak single words.

Another great toy for cognitive development of babies this age is the LeapFrog Learning Fried Tad, which is a plush frog that sings a song, counting numbers 1-10, and another song about the various objects and colors pictured on the doll when squeezed.

This toy can also help stimulate secondary circular reactions, but not the coordination of secondary schemes, as it contains only one button which plays two various songs. The toy can also help the child learn, verbally, the numbers 1-10, as well as the names of various colors.
