LeapFrog Counting Candles
( LeapFrog $15.99 Score: )

Who doesn't love a birthday cake and candles? Imagine, now you can have a pretend birthday any day you like. Designed so that it counts as you push the button to light 1-2-3-4-5 candles, this clever little cake teaches one to one relationships in counting. It also sings the birthday song AND best of all tricks--when it blow out the candles...hold on to your hat! The candles go out! Magic! These are several other songs built into the pay, but it's the candles that will win the day! Tell the teddy bears and dolls to get ready. They can count on many pretend parties with this one! They say 1 & up. We'd say 2's and up will like this best! The company tells us that this toy is exclusive to Toys R Us until the beginning of 2010.

The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

SNAP IDEAS: Counting to five is not just a rote game here. You actually must touch each candle to make it light, so there is one to one relationship here that is reinforced. We found children and adults were totally amazed with the magic of being able to blow out the candles. Kids also love the idea of being able to celebrate birthdays any day of the week. How about a teddy bear's birthday?
