Comparison: Fisherprice Laugh and Learn Puppy Vs Leapfrog My Pal Scout

When it comes to toys there are so many products on the market that some people don't know where to start or know which are the best brands etc. 

Now for Christmas Blake got two different interactive puppies which we love. 
I decided to do a comparisons post as then I give my thoughts on both of them
so if you have seen both before and not sure which one to get then this post should help you. 

Blake loves both and they both have different songs etc for play and learning. 
So the first is the Fisherprice Laugh and Learn Puppy (smart stages) then we have the  Leapfrog My Pal Scout which you can also purchase in purple called
My Pal Violet.

This puppy comes with the smart stages technology so that the puppy can grow with your child. 
There are a variety of developmentally appropriate songs, phrases and sounds within three levels of play. Puppys light-up heart even twinkles along to the music! 

Smart Stages Technology Level 1 
 Explore  6M+ First words and sounds spark babys curiosity 

Level 2 
Encourage  12M+ Prompt baby through questions and simple directions

 Level 3 
Pretend 18M+ Imaginative fun and early role play. 

With this puppy we like that it is touch sensitive and that on the back you have an on and off switch and also can change the volume to high or low.  The songs are great and teach numbers, colors,ABC's etc so it fits in well with your child's development. 

The downside is the off switch on the paw as Blake keeps turning it off and on and
its a pretty annoying hearing it say bye bye frequently. Other than we really love it.

My Pal Scout  can be personalised which is amazing!
This is done via connecting to your mobile or tablet using the app.
You can personalise it to says your child's name but its worth 
checking in advance if your little ones name is on there if its unique name. 
You can then choose your child's favorite food, color and animal from a wide selection. 
Scout comes with 5 pre-loaded songs, or you can select and download your choice of learning tunes and lullabies from an online list of 30 songs. Press a paw to play music, learning songs or games. 

The cute puppy teaches:
- Learning about numbers: children are introduced to number names and number order through counting games and activities.

- Introducing daily routines: learning about daily routines help children develop a sense of time and sequence.

Learning about feelings: even very young children can begin to recognise and express their feelings, as well as the feelings of others.

Again like the fisherprice puppy My Pal Scout is touch sensitive which we love. 
I like that the color of Scout is eye catching so catches Blake's attention easily. 
There is an on and off button on Scouts foot like the laugh and learn puppy but it 
is quiet when it turns off. 

Blake loves both of them and we love that each puppy teaches him different things.
The fact that Scout is personalised is just an added bonus to the interactive puppy. 

Does your little one/s have one or both of these puppies? 
I'd love to know your thoughts
