$23.99 Leap Frog Tag Reading System (reg. $49.99) February 16, 2010

What an AMAZING deal! We purchased the Leap Frog Tag Reading System for our 4-year-old son just after Christmas for $49.99. He LOVES it. I love that he can learn to read while wearing headphones in the backseat of the car on road trips…

Well, here’s one HECK of a deal! The Leap Frog Tag Reading System, regularly $49.99 is on sale for $29.99 on Leap Frog’s site, and you can get an additional 20% OFF when you use code LPTHW9. This brings the purchase of the reading system AND the included book to just $23.99 plus tax! If you add another book or two onto your purchase so that the total is over $50, you’ll get FREE SHIPPING too.

Grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, anyone who knows a kiddo in the 4 – 8 age range, please check this out. Not only does the pen “read” the book to your kiddo, it engages your child in educational games within the book. This is far better than a video game, and perfect for that quiet time in the afternoon that all kids need.  You can even follow your child’s progress online!

Expires: Code expires March 31, 2010. I’m not sure when the sale itself ends.


$18 Crayola Color Explosion Glow Dome December 11, 2009

I just read an ad for this Crayola Color Explosion Glow Dome in Parents magazine and it sounds like a really neat toy. Kids (geared for 6 & up) can color on the clear dome with the provided markers, and project their images up onto the ceiling. They’ll even spin thanks to the motorized dome. Talk about the perfect slumber party activity!

So, I started checking out pricing. Amazon has it for $43, but I found it in our local Target ads for just $18 through tomorrow! That’s more than 50% off!

Enter your zip code to see the weekly ad for the Target near you.

And be sure to pick up the 3 AA batteries to give with the Glow Dome!
