When I buy toys for my children I do like them to have some kind of educational value to them which is why I like LeapFrog toys so much. They do tend to produce a lot of learning toys and my kids love them, the latest toy we've been trying out is the Learning Friends Play & Discover School Set.
It's set out like a little school with three learning friends figures Tiger, Turtle and Monkey but you can also buy more figures separately.
When you place the figures in the learning circle you can hear stories, songs and phrases and each character responds differently.
The teacher Mrs Giraffe can be moved along to change the subjects, you can choose between Greetings, Story Time, Break Time, Sharing Time and Free Play.
You can pop the figures on the carousel for a spin during Free Play.
Or propel them down the slide with the acceleration lever.
With over 70 songs and phrases this play set entertained Riley and Summer for hours, it teaches them daily routines, listening comprehension and pretend play and is great for preparing young children for school.
It's aimed at children aged 2-5 years old which is perfect for my two and they've played with it a lot since they had it a few weeks ago.
You can buy the LeapFrog Learning Friends Play & Discover School Set from Argos, Toys R Us, Amazon, Smyths Toys and Tesco.
