My Pal Violet is an adorable, cuddly pup that introduces children to words, counting and feelings through 14 activities. Violet is the perfect friend who can be personalised to magically learn your child's name and favourite things, now even via smart devices! She has super-soft fur and four touch points that respond when pressed, encouraging children to interact as she talks to them and leads them in learning and nurturing activities. Comes with 40+ songs, melodies and lullabies. For ages 6+ months. All LeapFrog toys are educator-approved, child-tested, follow national standards and feature British spellings, phonics and pronunciations. *Internet required Teaches · Learning about numbers: Children are introduced to number names and number order through counting games and activities. · Introducing Daily Routines: Learning about daily routines help children develop a sense of time and sequence. · Learning about Feelings: Even very young children can begin to recognise and express their feelings, as well as the feelings of others. Play, Laugh and Learn Enjoyable music, sing-along songs, and lullabies are always available at the press of a paw. Press the Daytime Songs paw to sing along with up to five different, active, upbeat songs. When children are ready for new challenges, parents can connect Violet to a computer and select, download and swap in new tunes. To play learning games with Violet, press the Activities paw. The puppy starts the conversation by asking about your child’s favourite things, but the interaction doesn’t stop there. Violet has lots to say, and this includes silly surprises like counting hiccups and pretending to be other animals, as well as more thoughtful communications, like talking about feelings. (For example, Violet might say: “I feel happy; show me your biggest smile.”) When it’s time to wind down from the day’s adventures, press the Lullabies paw to hear soothing lullaby music. These mellow tunes transition from a day of active learning to quiet naptime or night time. Once again, parents can choose and change the songs found in the Lullabies paw by downloading up to 5 new melodies and setting Violet for 2, 5, or 10 minutes of blissful bedtime music. Personalize the Learning Fun Violet is here to help children learn, and you can teach him a few tricks, too. Select your child’s name from a list of thousands, and Violet will express his love and friendship by the name you select. Personalize the learning even more by customizing Violet with your child’s favourite animal, food and colour. Your pal also stores and plays up to five daytime melodies and five night time lullabies from a selection of more than 30 tunes you can download to Violet.
