Leap Frog ‘TAG’ Interactive World Map
Interactive learning and fun at its best!
A little too much American accent on the audio file for my liking.
To access the Interactive World Map you need to have the TAG reader pen. Once you have this it’s a fairly easy set up process. The TAG reader pen comes with clear instructions and all you need to do is download the ‘Leap Frog Connect’ application to your PC or Mac. You then choose the product/toy you wish to register and away you go! (If you are having any problems with the download, try switching your firewall off for 10 minutes while it downloads). You then need to pick the audio file you will need in order to access the Interactive Map, plug the TAG reader into your computer and drag and drop the audio files onto it – the site has clear instructions for the whole process. You’re now ready to use the TAG reader with the maps. One side of the map has lots of pictures and is probably more suitable for younger children. Touch any of the countries and the pen will tell you its name and some facts. Various icons at the bottom of the board let you play games, hear music from different countries and take part in challenges at different levels. The reverse of the map is more traditional looking and has slightly harder games and challenges that will keep the kids (and you) amused for hours. This product is great for developing children’s geographical knowledge (countries, animals, weather, vocabulary/technical terms etc) whilst still having fun – brilliant!
