My older daughter takes guitar lessons. She’s not playing a lot of songs yet, but she knows some chords and that’s enough to look good “rocking out” when the kids play band. We don’t let the other kids use the guitar because it’s too big and expensive to be bumped around, so their always looking for objects to play guitar with.
LeapFrog Touch Magic
So when we got the chance to host a Touch Magic Rock and Learn Party sponsored by Leap Frog, we were sooooo excited!
My older daughter wrote out the invitations and each child invited 2 friends. The girls helped me set up the table with Leap Frog products and activities and we all decorated the room.
We were finally able to get the Touch Magic Learning Bus and two Touch Magic Rockin’ Guitars out for the party. It was soooo hard to make my kids wait for the party to play with them!
Finally, our friends started to arrive and it was party time! A couple of the guests were running a little late, so I let the kids start the party off with some fun Leap Frog activities.
They colored pictures and made fun animal masks. Afterwards, the kids each got an award for doing a great job and reaching “Rock Star Status”.
As the kids finished up their coloring activities, we had a little snack before moving on to the Touch Magic fun.
The high point of the party for the big kids wanted to do was play the Touch Magic guitars, of course. We did a few solos to let everyone warm up and then we played “Rock Band” with two people playing the Touch Magic guitars at the same time.
The kids really loved the guitars and had a lot of fun playing with them. There are a bunch of songs they know that they can choose from, like The Alphabet Song, Itsy Bitsy Spider and Pop Goes the Weasel. If the kids strum the guitar fast, the song plays faster and when they slow down the music slows, so it made the kids feel like they were really playing. They loved adding funny sounds, drums and even applause sounds after they finished a song.
While the big kids were rocking on the guitars, the younger kids were more drawn to the Learning Bus. They sat on the floor around it and had a ball playing songs and making letter sounds. It was easy to use and would react to just the lightest touch from one of the children, which is really important with the younger kids who are still learning to manipulate buttons and knobs on toys.
When it was time for the party to end, each guest got a fun goody bag with more LeapFrog activity pages and some sweet treats too.
Our LeapFrog Touch Magic Rock N Learn party was a huge hit! Everyone loved both the Rockin’ Guitar and the Learning Bus and my kids have been playing with them daily since the party. I would definitely recommend them (as well as every other LeapFrog product we’ve ever bought)!
