Hop on board for fun with the alphabet, early vocabulary, motor skills and learning songs!
The Touch Magic Learning Bus brings a world of learning to life with the touch of a finger. By touching any of the 26 alphabet letters, your child can hear the letter name, the letter sound, 26 words that start with the letter, and a sound associated with that word. By sliding your finger across the bus and tapping the letters, animals or instruments, your child can play and learn on his own! Or they may sing along to Wheels on the Bus, The ABC Song, and the Rockin School Bus!

Meet your new friends on the bus!
With the new Touch Magic Learning Bus, meet five new friends! Rabbit drives the bus and is on lead vocals, while Tiger strums the guitar! Monkey keeps the rhythm with his hands and his feet, Turtle rocks his tuba, and Penguin, who keeps the bus fun with his tambourine. They don’t just play instruments, they talk! Touch Turtle to hear him say, “Pick up the Tuba, get ready to blow, just cus you’re a turtle, you don’t have to play it slow!” The Touch Magic Learning Bus is teaches letter names and sounds: To read independently, children must understand the relationship between the sounds in spoken words and the letters that represent those sounds. Teaches early vocabulary: Children expand their listening vocabulary by matching pictures to words. Teaches music: Making and listening to music can increase a child's creativity as well as support language, math, and physical development. Teaches animals: Children can begin to categorize animals by species, imitate their sounds and learn interesting facts about them.

Learning Starts Here!
“Research shows a strong link between knowing the alphabet and learning to read. We designed the Touch Magic Learning Bus to provide a good foundation for your child's future phonics learning. The Learning Bus helps children learn about letter names and the relationship between letters and sounds – crucial steps on the road to reading.” -Carolyn James, Educational Expert and Learning Designer at LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc.

Editorial Review

Kids ages two and older can take a ride on the musical LeapFrog Touch Magic Learning Bus to learn the alphabet, vocabulary, and motor skills. The school bus-shaped touch board features large, colorful letters, each with a corresponding image beginning with that letter. It also offers colorful touch piano keys, musical animal characters, and simple control symbols for a total of more than 40 interactive touch points. Your child will enjoy playing the phonics- or music-themed games by tapping the icons and hearing the toy respond with a variety of sounds.

Helps Small Children Learn the Alphabet and Vocabulary

Through dedicated games or letter exploration mode, the Magic Learning Bus teaches children the relationship between sounds in spoken words and the letters that represent those sounds. These exercises children begin to read independently. When the Learning Bus is in letter exploration mode, tapping each letter plays an audible explanation of the letter's name, the sound it makes, and a word that starts with it. Your child can also choose to play a game that asks them to identify certain letters or pictures. The board has more than 40 interactive touch points.

Musical Activities Add a Creative Rhythm to the Learning

The Learning Bus's music mode gives any play session a musical background. It includes catchy sing-along songs about the alphabet, motion, and more. Your child can jam on the piano or on the two wheels that double as drums, playing along with a song or creating their own melody.

Animal Musicians Play Along

While a song is playing on the Learning Bus, your child can touch any of the five animal characters to prompt them to play their respective instruments. There's a penguin with a tambourine, a turtle on tuba, a monkey playing drums, a tiger with an electric guitar, and a bunny bus driver that sings backup vocals.

Operating the Learning Bus

Our testers found the LeapFrog Touch Magic Learning Bus extremely easy to operate, just as you'd hope a toy for children as young as two would be. As with many children's toys, be aware that this one produces a lot of sound during play. There are only two volume settings, and the lower one isn't necessarily “quiet.”

Warranty Information

The LeapFrog Touch Magic Learning Bus is backed by a manufacturer's three-month limited warranty.
