I am a mother of a busy 3 year old son named Jae'Sun. Jae'Sun is very independent & I swear he thinks he is a grown man. Whenever he sees mommy on the laptop, he runs off to his room to get his 'puter'.
Jae'Sun's 'puter' is a Fisher-Price Fun 2 Learn Laughtop. This Laptop helps preschoolers build key academic skills like phonics, upper and lowercase letters, letter recognition and letter order. It even has 2 fun 'mouse' games: pong & a maze.
Ok now for the bad news...the Laughtop was discontinued this year BUT Fisher-Price has a newer version out called Color Flash Laptop. The Fisher-Price Color Flash Laptop has 6 fun learning modes: Letters, Phonics, Numbers, Music, Games, Typing & even a slide in mouse pad! Personally I think this is a great gift for a preschool aged child because they have fun while learning. Kids can easily get bored with toys but with the different modes on the laptop they are kept amused. Parent Tip: Great for long car rides!
This funtastic laptop can be purchased on Amazon for $27.59 & it also qualifies for FREE shipping.
