This toy requires 3 AA batteries which are included already. See him in action below.

Kids these days are growing up in an era of technology, it’s nothing like when I was growing up. With four children, three of which are old enough to own their own electronics we’ve tried quite a few tablet options for our kids. LeapPad from LeapFrog are great starter tablets for kids. What I love most about this super pack from BJ’s is the bundled extras that’s included in the page. The most important is the protective gel skin. I learned the hard way how now protecting a tablet could result in having to replace it. In addition to the skin this also comes with a $30 download card to get your started in the LeapPad store.

We have an infant, he’s turning one in a few days, right before Christmas.
