LeapFrog Tag Solar System Adventure Pack Review and Giveaway


The holidays are coming up -- and I'm giving away a LeapFrog Tag and Solar System Adventure Pack! Keep reading to find out how to enter....

My kids are getting older but our house is not getting any bigger, so last year we reluctantly said goodbye to our collection of LeapFrog Tag readers. Thanks in part to all the hours they spent with their Tag readers, my kids are already good readers, so our Tags and Tag books have found a good home with their younger cousins.

Then LeapFrog sent us a Tag Reader and Solar System Adventure pack some weeks ago, and I'm kind of regretting that we didn't keep at least one of those old Tags -- because the Solar System Adventure pack is awesome! This pack, along with Leapfrog's Tag USA Map and Tag World Map, is great for my 7 year olds and even my 10 year old. Keep reading to find out why (and enter to win a set of your own!)....


The Basics

About the Tag:
Learn to read with the #1 selling reading system! The amazing touch technology of Tag brings books to life to teach phonics, vocabulary, comprehension skills and more. And a library of 40+ interactive storybooks, maps and more feature characters to help inspire children to learn to read.
About the Tag Solar System Adventure Pack:
Take off on an out-of-this-world adventure with the interactive, two-sided Tag™ solar system map! Play more than 40 activities and family-friendly games with this 2-in-1 map that unfolds to over 3 feet! Learn solar system terms and planetary facts, and log your journey with bonus interactive stickers! Appropriate for children ages 4 to 8 years. Parents can follow their child's play and learning progress on the LeapFrog® Learning Path


The Bongga
I've praised the Tag so much in the past that I'm in danger of sounding like a TV informercial, so I'll just point you to some of my past Tag posts so you can read all about it. I have to say, though, Leapfrog has made so many improvements to the Tag, I hardly recognize it! The latest Tag is smaller and sleeker, so little hands can hold it better. We received a standard green colored Tag, but it now comes in many other colors: pink, purple, purple-and-green, orange, teal, even a Toy Story branded Tag. Leapfrog expanded the Tag's memory from 16MB to 32MB a couple of years ago, so you can keep 10 books stored in the Tag at any one time. When I first blogged about the Tag in 2008, MSRP was around $50, and three years later, it still the same price.

But I haven't blogged about the Solar System Adventure pack yet, so I can rave about it all I want. It's really a nifty little reference book -- or should I say map, because although it's about the same size as a regular Tag book, it actually unfolds to a long-narrow, 2-sided map of the solar system, full of information and facts about the planets, asteroids and more.

It works just like a regular Tag book -- touch on an image, say, of Saturn, and you'll hear all kinds of fun facts about the planet (it has at least 64 moons!). All the information is up to date, including Pluto's reclassification as a dwarf planet, along with Ceres, Haumea, MakeMake and Eris. I had no idea those other dwarf planets even existed, so I'm learning right along with my kids.

In addition to all the facts, the Solar System Adventure pack has activities, games and quizzes. Kids can test their knowledge of solar system facts, listen to clues to find the mystery spot, or play a board game by themselves or with a friend. It even comes with several sticker pages -- and get this, the stickers work with the Tag reader too!



We're really enjoying the Solar System Adventure pack. The age range says 4-8 years, but this is something kids of any age can look at, again and again. My 10 year old likes it, and so do I!


The Blah
Honestly, nothing! They've thought of everything, down to the velcro-sealed box where you can store the game board, stickers, passport and instructions, all in one place.


The Bottom Line
With the Solar System Adventure Pack, Leapfrog has extended the life of the Tag Reader to beyond the 4-7 age range. It's a reading tool, game board, activity pack and reference book, so everyone in the family will love it!
