Technology is a key item today, being part of every structural decision, we make later in our lives.

The Leapfrog my own Leaptop is a perfect way to solve this problem, engaging children in the use of a toy laptop that can encourage learning through spelling, perception skills and problem-solving mechanics.
When playing with the Leaptop, children are introduced to a keyboard with a wide range of options that can encourage them to learn spelling through typing and with activities on the device. This helps them think critically about what is going on while observing the choices they have at there disposal. This can be done while refining motor skills that can help children be more aware towards objects around them for further use. Using a keyboard, even if it is for play can help this feature for future uses of a real computer or laptop.
