(Disclosure: I received products from LeapFrog and this giveaway is sponsored by them but all thoughts are my own.)

Yesterday I posted a video with some great tips on choosing educational toys. I learned a lot of valuable information, including more about how toys are developed at LeapFrog. You can find the video here.

I’m so excited that LeapFrog is letting me host a giveaway for you all! We have an old LeapPad and the kids love it!Â **One of you will win a LeapPad2 Power, 2 games and $20 app card. The total value of this giveaway prize is $170.** Wouldn’t this make a perfect Christmas gift!?

Here’s a little more about the LeapPad2 Power:

*Create, learn and explore with the #1 kidsâ€™ learning tablet*â€”now with an easy, one-step recharger built just for the LeapPad2- a $40 value! Youâ€™ll never have to buy batteries again!*

*The LeapPad2â„¢ Power learning tablet includes 9 apps, 4GB memory and loads of exciting features in a kid-tough tablet designed just for kids! Take pictures and videos with front-and-back cameras/video recorders. Play, draw and write on the 5″ touch screen with the included stylus. Tilt and shake for motion-based play, customize and care for a lovable pet, and create masterpieces in the Art Studio.*

*LeapPad2 Power works with LeapFrogâ€™s library of 800+ educator-approved apps, games, eBooks, videos, music and more.** Learning games draw from 2,600 skills and select games auto-level, adapting to your childâ€™s pace in subjects like reading, writing and mathematics. With 4GB of storage and an included rechargeable battery pack, the learning fun never ends!*

*Features*

*â€¢ Charge and go with a long-lasting rechargeable battery pack and AC adapter included. Get up to 9 hours of play time with each full charge!*

*â€¢ Create, learn and explore with the #1 kids’ learning tablet. Now with an included one-step recharger packâ€”youâ€™ll never have to buy batteries again!*

*â€¢ LeapPad2â„¢ Power includes 9 apps (onboard and downloadable): Â Photo Lab, Art Studio, Pet Pad, LeapFrog Learning Songs and more.*

*â€¢ Works with LeapFrogâ€™s educator-approved library of over 800+ games, eBooks, videos and more.*

*â€¢ Compatible with LeapFrog Explorerâ„¢ cartridges and apps (sold separately) and LeapFrog LeapPad2â„¢ accessories (sold separately).*

I want to win this for my son. He is very smart and loves to read at the age of 2. I personally cannot afford something like this due to his medical allergies and all working a few extra jobs to get by as a single mom. But I try my hardest to get him the best.
