LeapFrog® Learn & Groove™ Musical Mat – Product Review
Interactive Jumbo Musical Playmat for Active Toddlers
The LeapFrog Learn & Groove Musical Mat provides the answer to parents looking to engage active toddlers in learning experiences that enhance cognitive development through the use of music whilst also encouraging movement and exploration.
Designed to engage active toddlers in physical movement to introduce the musical foundations of rhythm, tempo and beat, develop mathematical skills and strengthen gross motor skills.
As parents, we eagerly (and sometimes impatiently) anticipate our child’s achievement of significant developmental milestones such as crawling, walking and talking. The reality of actually living with a toddler, however, presents a whole new (and exhausting!) world of learning opportunities and challenges for parents.
The curiosity of a growing mind and the seemingly never-ending supply of bursting energy, results in a toddler’s insatiable need to explore their environment. In toddler terms, this translates into the unrelenting desire and uncanny ability to get into almost anything and everything they possibly can (most of which being those things that they shouldn’t). Toys that once provided periods of sustained play and active engagement are overlooked in the pursuit of pioneering exploration and the testing of one’s own physical limitations.
The LeapFrog Learn & Groove Musical Mat is introduces musical instruments, stimulates auditory development and promotes sound recognition whilst engaging physical movement. Encourages the practice of balance and coordination skills through the physical exploration of musical foundations of rhythm, tempo and beat whilst teaching foundational mathematical concepts such as counting and sequencing. Promotes collaboration, shared play and turn-taking.
