With the easy to use instructions these two pups are able to provide hours of interactive learning and fun. Not only does LeapFrog encourage interactive play with this new product, but also comes with 5 books that young children can look through in a collaborative method with either Scout or Violet.


Scout and Violet feature 4 interactive spots that a child may touch in order to hear a specific response:

  • Pat their back to answer questions
  • Kiss their cheek to hear them say they are your best friend
  • Press their left paw to hear songs
  • Press their right paw for more responses

As well as the interactive pet, 5 board books are also included to help encourage your child to read along with Scout or Violet. These books are:

  • Let’s Go Camping
  • Let’s Learn About Weather
  • Let’s Cheer Up Eli

Not only do Scout and Violet read these books aloud, they encourage involvement from the reader by asking questions throughout, and pausing for answers. This style of interaction encourages individual thought as well as creative thinking.

Reviewers Experience

The Scout LeapFrog Puppy turned out to be very entertaining as well as educational. The books were great for beginners in reading, and there were multiple prompts for answers given by the reader. With a range of books given, hours of entertainment can be provided as well as reinforced reading techniques.

Furthermore, the Scout and Violet can ask over 70 questions about the 5 books included so each reading session for a different learning experience.
