Questions & Answers

Kenleigh, pronounced Ken-leigh, is a boy's name Do you know whether Lee will be mentioned in the list?

However, I'm not sure, but my son's name is Graham and it didn't appear on the list, and the name is correct there but you can input the name of the child, and there are a few different pronunciations to select That should be helpful, thanks!

Do you have Zoey's contact information?

Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy the same thing at Walmart for $15 instead of paying more than $25?

Do the batteries come with the package?

I'm not quite sure what you mean. CHARGERS REQUIRED is written on the product description. The reason for that is that if the batteries are included, they are only demo units. (That's what happened to me.) They won't last long enough to get your friend set up with the computer. If the product was sent directly from the manufacturer without being displayed, it would come with a DEMO battery. Therefore, before even setting up, make sure you install three new AA batteries. You can put your trust in me. (1 took place. After 5 hours of setup and 2 calls to customer service, I still have a hard time saying his name).

Does it come with it and how do you get it from your computer?

Instructions are clear and easy to understand. To use this program, you must download it to your computer ("LeapFrog connect application"), then plug your device into it and run it. Setting it up doesn't take long and finding your way around is easy.

Selected User Reviews For LeapFrog My Pal Violet (Frustration Free Packaging)

Like all other Leap toys, it has changed for the worse

The old version had a lot more character to it. With this application, you can choose which songs you want it to play or not. In the month of her birthday, I would have it play her birthday song. During the holidays, it would play Christmas carols. We won't be doing this anymore. My understanding is that Leapfrog keeps changing its good products all the time. For example, the Leaptop used to let you customize it so you could send them a message featuring their name, along with three emails with personalized messages from three In this case, it would read "Hello, Sally. ". An important email has been sent to you The note reads, "I miss you so much when you're away. ". Dear Aunt Lucy, I love you. Is it okay if I reply to you? ", or something along those lines. It's up to you how to relate, how to enclose the message, and how to enclose Toys like this are hard to come by. Now, you can't add a dang thing to it, and they still charge you the same price. As soon as my daughter spilled juice on hers, we replaced it just to find out that it had no custom settings any more. Anyway, I've got to get back to my The problem appears to be the same. Changes have been made to how it can be used. However, despite having been in all the baby name books for a long time, my child's name did not appear on the list. Unless they want you to record your own voice, you can record yourself saying the name. You can either build it from scratch or have it built for you The sounds of the individual letters were recorded. However, maybe this is a bit much to expect from even a $10 bill The 20 toy is a new one. It's fair to say that. However, I believe this model is not as good as the old model, so if you are shopping for a replacement, set your expectations lower.

A warning exists! From the Scout and Violet models, this is a downgraded model! The little guy has Scout for a couple of years now, and he's in love with In keeping with our decision, we gave Violet to a friend's daughter as a birthday present

Violet arrived and I began the customization process, but I noticed some notable differences compared to the older There is no chest heart. There was a button on the chest containing most of the "feelings. " It has been removed. This is the button that is pressed when you hug Scout/Violet, but now nothing happens when you hug it. 1) There is no ability to customize songs. It was possible to choose from a variety of songs, including Christmas songs, when we were using Scout. Unlike the old version, the new one does not give you this No USB cable means you're stuck with whatever song comes by default.

3) No songs with lyrics. It's actually a good thing, since it means you won't have to search for a USB cord to customize. Instead, you can plug your attached cord into the headphone jack on your phone or computer. The new version likely has only one improvement. **4) A larger battery pack is available. Batteries in the new version are larger than those in the old version, making them harder to stuff into the back of the toy. Because it is easier to squeeze when it is in, Violet is less enjoyable to squeeze when it is in. Two years after Scout's purchase, the velcro on its back is wearing thin, and I imagine that the new version will be even less durable because more pressure will be applied to Though the velcro opening is actually larger in the new version, it opens quite high up on Violet's neck, and the battery pack does not fit in that area. Despite that, it's a fun toy, but I am disappointed that Leapfrog would change the product so drastically.

It was great in the old version, but not in the new one

The Scout/ Violet product has mixed reviews from me. Two of my kids had these and absolutely loved them! It was an absolute delight to be around There are many ways to customize the toy, such as choosing the song and sayings, selecting items and songs, and even deciding the battery life (which is not the case with many toys today). Yet we bought another one for my third child as a Christmas gift. As careful as I was to get the exact same product, however, when it arrived, it was labeled as a "new" model of Scout, even though Amazon did not advertise it that way. My first reaction was "Oh, it's new, so it must be better," That's not the case. You can no longer choose your child's favorite song! Although you can still customize their name, favorite food, and favorite animal, you aren't able to customize My son was very disappointed when his siblings were allowed to pick and change the music line-up, while he is not. I can't imagine the reasoning behind the removal of this feature. He is a very sensitive child so we didn't want to return it. However, since Scout is a very sensitive boy, we figured Scout may be upset if it was returned. A way to distinguish the two versions is that the "New" version (with no option to change songs) transfers information via an audio jack, while the older, more reliable model comes with There is no way to know what version Amazon will send. Consequently, if choosing the songs is important to you, you might want to get your music from a physical store so you know which version you're.

Our daughter loves it

It has been one of the best gifts we have ever given her. One of these was bought for our daughter when she was about six months old, and we loved it. soon became part of her daily routine. She says she loves her Violet "too much. " When asked how much she loves it, she replies, "I'm addicted!" Around the time of Violet's 4th birthday, her nighttime music button stopped working, and after her 4th birthday, we had to replace it. It did not displease me in the least. After about three years of daily and nightly use, it had suffered wear and tear. Our new one told Violet that she would have to have surgery to be fixed and we simply replaced them. Im so glad that you can program the name into it even if she didn't have one. Because it included her nickname, I was able to make it. This is one of the best purchases we've ever made.

We like that she can customize it to keep her entertained and that Violet's voice is soothing and soft

The tone is not too As a thoughtful gift for my granddaughter, who is blind and special needs, I purchased this. The music is programmable and interesting so she will have fun for a long time. The fact that the music learns her name and her favorite items and mixes them into songs is great. A good motivator for use of this and other cause and effect toys is that this one has an automatic sleep option and a push button. Though we had expected her to need a little time to learn all the options, she learned them so quickly that it has helped her advance in some other respects. My husband and I are very pleased that it is so affordable with no additional fees for online access. Those families who are struggling financially are especially benefitted by this, since they so often have special needs. She loves it so much, and it hugs her and she adores it. This is the first stuffed animal she's liked and she adores it so much. This is awesome!.
