We initially got the Leap Frog Scout and Friends...and You! Leap Pad Game because it was one of the few games that showcase it is for the 3 year old age and because my daughter is a fan of the Leap Frog characters. However, I was pleasantly surprised with how well she took to the game.
The game is only available as a digital download, making it a great game for on-the-go. It requires 40 MB of space on your Leap Frog device when the game is download, and can be used LeapPad Ultra, LeapPad2, LeapPad1, LeapsterGS and the Leapster Explorer. As with other Leap Pad games, Scout and Friends…and You! features multiple difficulty settings allowing the game to grow along with your child. The recommended age range is 3-5.
It teaches your child about feelings and emotions. One activity focuses on your child determining what emotion/feeling the character is portraying. My daughter loves the music and has learned about emotions, as well as acknowledges how others are feeling. She will ask if you are sad, happy, etc. She even provides hugs or encouragement for those not having a good day.
Overall Leap Frog Scout and Friends...and You! is a great educational tool. It is affordable, easy to navigate, and easy to play.
