Our kids love to play with our iPhones and iPads whenever given the opportunity! It's a great way to keep them entertained and when playing the right app, educational as well! I am always on the lookout for apps that are age-appropriate and educational, which is why I was excited to learn about two new products from LeapFrog that turn an Apple device into an exciting learning tool!

We were sent the LeapFrog Creativity Camera Protective Case and Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil Stylus to review.

When the products arrived, Kaelyn and Kaden saw them right away and were eager to try them out. I couldn't blame them, I was too!

The Creativity Camera Protective Case was the first one we tested. This fun product turns an iPhone and iPod touch into the ultimate kid-friendly camera and creativity center.

I started out by downloading the free Creativity Camera app on my phone. I then opened up the case and placed my iPhone inside. I love that this case protects my phone while the kids are using it!

The kids love to take pictures with our phones, so this brought it to an even more exciting level making it look like a camera! Kaden especially likes to play with it. He can take photos with the phone's camera and then can edit them to make silly pictures. It's fun to see the fun he has! He also has been learning a lot! It encourages him to find things that start with each letter of the alphabet and take pictures of them. So neat! 

This innovative app toy turns our devices into a great place for the kids to use their creativity and they love it! I would definitely recommend checking it out!

We also received the Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil Stylus. This app toy gives kids a fun, engaging way to interact with the world of Mr. Pencil and the citizens of Doodleberg as they learn writing and drawing skills.

My kids absolutely love this! They see my husband and I using a stylus so they love having one of their own now...not to mention the fun it allows them to have on this educational app! The stylus can be used to unlock more than 85 interactive activities and be used to practice writing letters and numbers too!

Kaden and Kaelyn both enjoy using this to practice writing and drawing! It's neat to see them having fun all while learning at the same time. They enjoy the animation and sound effects and often don't even know they're learning! I have already seen a difference in their handwriting and letter/number recognition! YAY!

Not only do I appreciate the educational value this toy provides, but also the fact that it's kid-friendly and safe to use. It's the perfect size for little hands to use, and it's designed to be gentle on the devices it's used on without scratching the screen. We've really loved this toy and app and would recommend it to other parents who are looking for a fun learn-to-write tool!

Both of these toys would make terrific gift ideas for the little ones you have on your Christmas List this year!

Buy It: You can purchase the Creativity Camera Protective Case & App for $14.99 and the Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil stylus for $9.99!

    Hi Krishnan, that’s great! I’ve never cited Tolkein beofre but that fits perfectly in the case of ‘…but some of my best friends are’. | | |
