Leap Frog Word Builder Review

I'll tell you a bit about one of the LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Games, Word Builder, and suggest ways you can get the best deal if you decide it would suit your child.

As far as I can tell, Word-Builder is pretty much the same as Word Whammer which I understand is the older version. Please correct me if you have more updated information via our Parent's review section.

There are three different activities with Word-Builder, Load a Letter, Word Play and Word Building. The letter placement is accompanied with lights and the phonetic sound of the letter, helping kids to learn the name and sound.

WordBuilder comes with 29 magnetic letters, though you can purchase additional letter sets. Kids can build up to 325 3 letter words just with the basic set!

Kids love the rhyming and phonetic songs that help them to remember what they have learnt. It's easy to teach kids how to spell their names with Word Builder.

Do I recommend Word Builder?

As one of the range of LeapFrog Fridge Phonics educational toys, this one is aimed at 3 - 6 year olds, and is a great activity for preschoolers and early grade school. So long as you don't have any problem with the American accent (parents in other countries sometimes do) the Word-Builder is a good basic learning activity for children as they learn to read.

Finding The Best Deals For A WordBuilder

I recommend buying online, particularly if Christmas shopping! Far less stressful that struggling round the Mall with tired children, or racing out in your lunch break to pick toys up when the kids aren't with you!

I've saved you a lot of hassle by researching the two best and most secure ways to purchase online. The Amazon Links for LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Games are in the right column, and the Auction Listings on Ebay are below. Just because they are on Ebay, doesn't mean they are second hand. There are heaps of sellers with new products too.

If you have never purchased in an Ebay Auction before, it is really easy. You simply click through on a listing and up the top of the page you will see a link to log in or register. You register with an email address and username. There are usually multiple ways to pay for an item, often Paypal, or direct deposit. Read more about online auctions in our leapFrog Games Article.

If you can't see an item you are looking for in the listings below, you will find a link at the bottom for more listings, or you can enter a search in the search box at the top of the listings for any toy you want to check out.

You can often get a much better deal by purchasing via Auction rather than paying full retail price.
