This is Izebella’s most recent toy and an early gift from Santa. The Play and Discover school set is part of the Learning Friends toy collection from Leapfrog and aimed at young children 2 and over.
The toy needs minimal assembly, just a pink slide to attach on.
There are 4 animal figures in total. The teacher is Mrs Giraffe and the learning friends are Tiger, monkey and turtle.
The set has many interactive features with over 70 stories, songs and phrases to find and unlock. Mrs Giraffe stands at her interactive board and the learning friends listen. They also slide down the big pink slide and spin around the carousel. There’s lots going on in the Learning Friends school.
Izebella is starting nursery in January and the Learning friends set helps to introduce pre school routines through pretend play and fun. The interaction gives various activities such as washing hands, snacks, lessons, cleaning up and other things she may be doing when she starts nursery so it is very educational as well as a very fun interactive toy.
Each animal friend has its own personality and phrases and Mrs Giraffe greets each by name depending on who is at school. Extra learning friends can be purchased separately which I believe will unlock even more interactive content, always a possibility for birthdays and Easter gifts.
The toy needs 3 AA batteries which I have a drawer full of at this time. I’m unsure just how long the batteries will last.
The toy as a whole is fun and seems very strong and durable. It does not take up too much space either.
