After an interactive learning toy for your preschooler? Mr Pencil's Scribble and Write by LeapFrog is a stand-out in the arena of educational toys, and I've just found it for a bargain over at Dick Smith. Usually up to $40 elsewhere, you can grab it right now for just $21 with FREE shipping if you use the code FREEBIE.
My daughter had a very similar LeapFrog product to this many years back, and it was brilliant at teaching her how to hold a pencil correctly and form letters and numbers the right way. The fact that is was a "gadget" — which kids seem to be drawn to like magnets — definitely helped to disguise the learning factor too!
Mr Pencil's Scribble & Write is the latest of the learning toys that revolve around writing, and it's adorable. You get a cute, chunky-style tablet with an attached stylus-pencil that small hands can actually hold. Thanks to the clear LCD screen, kids can practise writing uppercase and lowercase letters with guidance - they can even play word games.
If you've got a little one who has just started preschool or kindy, this could come in very handy.
