I received a Read With Me Scout as part of a promotional program with LeapFrog and MomSelect. Thoughts are my own.
Read with Me Scout from LeapFrog is an interactive plush toy that helps children develop reading comprehension skills to get them on a path to reading. Not only does puppy pal Scout make reading fun with 5 interactive stories that he reads aloud, but he also responds to every pet, pat, hug and kiss!
Simply press a button on his collar to start reading and pat his head to turn the page. Scout will ask your child questions throughout each story to create engaging learning moments and help build comprehension skills. Scout loves to sing, too!
There are 2 modes available: Sleepy Time Mode and Story Time Mode. If you want it to read the books to your kid, simply turn on the Story Time Mode. And when it’s time to snuggle, listen to relaxing stories and 8 minutes of lullabies, just turn it to Sleepy Time Mode.
Scout also asks questions as it reads the stories and he also tells you when it’s time to pat his head so he can read the next page. The educational books are about different topics for kids.
There are 3 areas that your child can press and Scout will respond to these. The one on Scout’s right paw (the music note) will make him sing, the ones on Scout’s left paw (the bone) and his left cheek (the heart) will make him say different phrases.
Read With Me Scout features more than 70 different engagement and comprehension questions and comes with 5 board books!
Overall, it’s a great product for kids. My little loves listening to it and interacting with it not only during sleep or nap time but all throughout the day.
BUY IT! Read with Me Scout has a suggested retail price of $34.99.
