Kid Tested: LeapFrog My Pal Scout (GIVEAWAY)

by in Giveaway

LeapFrog’s new My Pal Scout is an interactive dog that is both charming and entertaining.

Kid Tested: LeapFrog My Pal Scout (GIVEAWAY)

Both, My Pal Scout and the girl version, My Pal Violet are designed for kids six months and older. They can be connected to your computer via USB to allow parents to customize songs (fun and bedtime) that are played. Additionally, you can input your child’s name and favorite things including color, animal and food.

Before we even turned Scout on, he was a hit. My youngest loves to cuddle and carry him around the house even without the music going.

Once on, Scout interacts with your child by asking them a series of questions. He says stuff like,

  • “I have the hiccups. Let’s count to five and see if they go away.”
  • “Can you guess what I am? Meow! I am pretending to be a cat. Meow with me”
  • Hi child’s name! Wanna Play?

While my 10 month old can’t talk back, my four year old gladly answers Scout’s question for him.

After we programmed my youngest son’s name in, it was funny to see the surprised look on his face when the dog knew his name.

Scout actually uses the name quite a bit, spelling it out, singing it in the middle of a couple songs and also when he says I love you

One of my favorite features is bedtime mode. Even though he came pre-loaded, we programmed Scout to play some of the music my son likes for bedtime. By pressing the bedtime paw(Blue embroidered cloud, moon stars), Scout will play bedtime music for 2 minutes. Press again 5 minutes and then 10 minutes. If your child’s name is programmed he will tell them he’s tired and that he wants them to snuggle up – very cute!

I highly recommend Scout as a feature-rich budget conscious gift idea($20). Not only is he cute, he is engaging and offers entertainment from 6 months to 3 years.

For your sanity, a switch on the battery pack at the back allows parents to turn the music up or down of off completely, if needed.

As a bonus, LeapFrog’s My Pal page has color pages, a printable adoption certificate and customizable song pages.
