Make every day a birthday with the Leapfrog Counting Candles Birthday Cake. Five candles light up one by one, and children can blow them out–just like on a real cake. Sing along to a counting song, five songs about growing up or add birthday lyrics to an instrumental tune. You can also listen to children’s thoughts on the best things about birthdays. Appropriate for children ages 1 year and up.
This is a simple toy, definitely meant for children under 2. In fact I’d say it’s fine to introduce this to your child younger than 1. Either way your child will love learning numbers and colors as they sing and clap along to the songs, and you can even add your own lyrics to the musical ones to customize it to your child. And as with all Leapfrog products, you can connect to the Leapfrog Learning Path for ideas and customize your own learning path for your child. It really is a great tool for parents! Know what else is great for parents? Volume control.
But now, the cons. Like I said this toy is simple, and while it is a nice design and the songs will keep your child entertained, I don’t personally think the price is worth it. Though with the price being the only con for me, maybe it’s worth it for you?

What Others Are Saying:
So cute, so cool, but bday song is too fast
My daughter received this as a gift for her 2nd birthday. I think that is the perfect age for this toy, although my older kids (3, 5, and 8) have all had some fun with it, too! My two-year old does need some help blowing out the candles sometimes, but she absolutely loves this little cake! She is at the age where she just loves singing the birthday song, so this present was a great choice for her!
