My little guy is currently into anything he can tinker and create with. Building toys are always a hit around here, with the added benefit that they’re great for hand-eye coordination. Taking it to the next level, though, I knew we were going to have plenty of learning fun with the LeapFrog® LeapBuilders® Fruit Fun Elephant™, the first ever line of smart building blocks from LeapFrog®.
It also helps that he’s also currently fascinated by elephants. All animals, really, but elephants are a notable favorite. Complete with our own funny elephant sounds.
While obviously we love that we can build the LeapBuilders® Fruit Fun Elephant™ into an elephant and it’s cute and colorful. It’s more than that, though. It’s also more than just a simple block toy. It’s an opportunity for little ones to build, create, and learn.
And it’s from LeapFrog, a brand that has helped children expand their knowledge and imagination through award-winning products for more than 20 years now.
There are so many fun aspects to the LeapBuilders Elephant. The star of the show, however, is the interactive Smart Star™ that has a place to insert the 10 double-sided learning blocks. Once inserted, each block has their own sounds and phrases that introduce each of the fruits and colors.
Also on the Smart Star™ are two buttons. Press the question button to hear learning phrases and questions about animals. The music button plays five melodies and four learning songs.
Jax really surprised me when it came to how quickly he caught on to the LeapBuilders Elephant. His sister did a great job showing him how it all worked. Yet, he won’t be 2 until next month, so I thought he might not get it just yet. However, the next day, I was in awe watching him taking the blocks in and out of the Smart Star™ all on his own.
This should be a great toy that he can play with for years ahead.
Intended for ages 2+, this 21 piece LeapFrog® LeapBuilders® Fruit Fun Elephant™ set has everything to build an elephant and more. Plus, it works with other LeapBuilders® building sets for even more learning fun! (each sold separately).
