What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this software for the Little Touch LeapPad is a great aid in introducing babies to language -- both English and Spanish. Our age recommendation doesn't match the audience for this product because Common Sense Media doesn't usually recommend media products for kids under age 2. But this product, operates more like a board book or educational toy and thus earns our five-star recommendation -- and is OK for younger children.

Why only 2+?

This movie is all about how babies are made and has horrendous language and sex throughout.

What's it about?

LET'S GET BUSY, BABY! is a book/software set for the Little Touch LeapPad Learning System. The 20-page book is loaded with photos of babies doing typical baby things: getting dressed, moving, eating, playing with toys, and saying goodnight. Some pages teach the parts of a baby's body and the features on a baby's face. One spread introduces toy instruments, and another introduces feelings with photos of babies expressing different emotions.

Parents snap the Let's Get Busy, Baby! book and software cartridge into the Little Touch LeapPad, and the pages on the touch-sensitive platform become interactive. The book can be explored using three settings: for 6- to 12-month-olds, 12- to 24-month-olds, and 2- to 3-year-olds. Parents can also activate a bilingual option to have words pronounced in Spanish. Each pair of pages features an extra activity called a \"bright spot,\" activated by pushing on the yellow light bulb symbol, that may be an interactive song or a seek-and-find game.

Is it any good?

This book/software set is an excellent way to introduce language to a baby. Babies love to look at pictures of other babies. The book introduces more than 50 words in an environment full of music and sounds. The book also offers helpful advice to parents about how to engage a child using this book/software set.
