LeapFrog Move & Learn Music Player is iPod for infants

Toy tech brand LeapFrog is expanding its line-up of educational kiddy gadgets with a handheld, portable music player that looks like an iPod classic, but for pre-schoolers.

The LeapFrog Move & Learn Music Player won't store MP3s or other file formats, but will come with 20 pre-installed songs for the little ones to enjoy. And there are also four activity modes aimed to teach infants about movement and help them improve their motor skills.

There are two versions of the player that will become available later in the year, one is styled around Scout, the company's iconic green dog pal and one around Violet, the female equivalent.

We haven't been informed when the Move & Learn Music Player will become available, but it'll cost £9.99 when it hits stores and be suitable for children 18 months and older. It's also worth pointing out that the sample Pocket-lint saw and photographed at Toy Fair 2012 in London was a prototype, and that the line of missing pixels on the its screen will not be an issue with the final toy.
