Our LeapFrog “Brave” Review

I took my boys to see Brave and we all really enjoyed it!  In fact, we enjoyed it outdoors at the Drive-In!  We recently had the opportunity to try out the new Brave items from LeapFrog – Disney Pixar Brave Tag Book and Disney Pixar Brave Explorer Cartridge.  The LeapFrog Explorer and Tag are some of my boys’ favorite electronics to play with.  I like them because they are both entertaining and educational.

Since they had already seen the movie, they were very interested in reading the book with the LeapFrog Tag and in playing the game on the LeapFrog Explorer.  The sound and colors on the game were awesome and the picture was so clear!  Both the book and game would definitely be sometimes I would recommend to family and friends.

    I keep seeing amazing gift ideas, but I’m not made of money. I need to write up a solid list. A lot of great pixar movies have been coming out recently.
