Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos Interview and Top Holiday Children’s Gifts

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, I often feel overwhelmed with the plethora of gift giving options for children.  In my family, we don’t let the gifting get out of control.  We also want our selections to either help foster our children’s creativity or contain educational components that are entertaining enough to capture their interests.  I recently had the chance to interview child development expert Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, the math and science development expert at LeapFrog’s learning team.  In the below video, she speaks about the best new, educational, and entertaining gifts to look for this holiday season.  Dr. LeVos also shares excellent tips regarding developmentally-appropriate gifts and top LeapFrog products.  Have a quick look over on LeapFrog!  I know I’m thinking about the Leap Pad 2 in hopes of reclaiming my iPad!

  1. aaaarg I really want to watch the video but my internet connection is rediculously slow tonight..I'll have to pop over another time to watch it 🙂

    I bought my son a leap pad last Christmas…he loved it…until I got an Ipad 😛
    Really interested to see what she has to say about Leap Pad 2!

    • I am hoping to reclaim my Ipad someday! If you are still having trouble with the embedded video, I can add a direct link to view the video to this post. Thanks for visiting.

  2. You asked her really great questions, including the one about developmentally appropriate toys. I sometimes give my daughter her older brother's toys and she gets frustrated. I want a Leap Pad too, I hear it is amazing! Great interview!
