LeapFrog get into the groove with Counting Maracas and Electric Guitar

First there was the bilingual drum and bilingual learning table from educational toy maker Leap Frog, now the company has launched the Learn and Groove electric guitar and Learn and Groove Counting Maracas.

The two new products hope to help children get into music and tie in with the government initiative to get kids more musically aware.

The Counting Maracas allow kids to shake and move them to the learning groove and feature lights, sounds and music to engage little ones and encourage not only interaction, but noise as well.

The Learn and Grove guitar looks more like a banjo and offers the same noise making features as the maracas without the shake. Kids can play a number of tunes, learn their alphabet, numbers or as with the other products in the range - French.

No prices as yet but expect them to be hitting the shops over the next couple of months.
