LeapFrog Tag Junior: You Know, A Frog Who Teaches Your Toddler How To Read

Tag Junior book pal, LeapFrog's newest Tag reading system, is now kid-friendlier with its chunky, ubercute, small-hands-friendly design, so you can start neglecting your children even earlier.

The Tag Junior pal is built for kids as young as two years old. The cute little guy is picked up and held on any page of a Tag Junior book, which it then reads aloud, emitting fun sound effects and music too, all using infrared cameras to follow along, and embedded memory to hold the book data. Parents also can download audio for each book in the Tag Junior library, and manage the MP3s and photo files using a Mac or PC.

The Tag Junior library will include titles such as Curious George: Colour Fun, Disney Pooh Loves To... and Dora the Explorer: 1-2-3 Dora!. The whole system will be available later this summer. Heh, and to think the highlight of my childhood was staring in front of the old boobtube watching Reading Rainbow.
