Are you experiencing issues with your LeapReader pen flashing red and yellow? You may need to clear the pen’s memory or transfer the books from your LeapReader to a computer.

To do this, you may need to take the batteries out of your LeapReader pen and put them back in. Power it back on again to complete the reset.

The LeapReader’s pen feels similar to a traditional writing instrument and offers guided writing practice for early writers. It sounds out the words and phrases as they’re written. It also works with special writing paper, which shows letters and words in the form they appear on the screen. LeapReader books and apps have over 150 titles, with content appropriate for various learning stages. Unlike Tag books, however, the LeapReader’s writing pen doesn’t erase letters and is not compatible with books that have already been read to your child.

Can be used with other LeapFrog products
In 1995, Michael Wood founded LeapFrog Enterprises. He was working for the law firm Cooley Godward when he had the idea for the Phonics Desk. In those days, there were no toys that served this purpose. By the mid-90s, school-age children had a plethora of electronic toys available. Wood’s son, Matthew, had mastered the alphabet but had trouble connecting the name of each letter to the sound of that letter. So, he searched for a toy that would address this problem.
The Count Along Cash Register is a great role-playing tool. This toy features a cash register, ten coins, eight healthy food options, a shopping card, and realistic scanning sounds. It also features over fifty phrases. It has the added benefit of allowing children to practice reading, writing, and math. While there is no substitute for real-life interaction, LeapFrog encourages downtime learning as well.
Has a built-in microphone
The built-in microphone will have a solid RED or GREEN LED when charging. It is designed to work in conjunction with a 3.5mm jack for audio connection and a USB port for charging. The LED will change colors from RED to GREEN to indicate the current charging status. In addition, the Microphone’s status LED will change from RED to GREEN to indicate that it is ready to be charged. If the pairing is unsuccessful, the LED will change to alternate RED and GREEN. Once the battery is fully charged, the Microphone will be able to provide approximately 8 hours of talk time. It’s important to charge the Microphone overnight in the Charger Base to ensure it is fully functional.
When testing the microphone, open the settings menu on your computer or go to the system preference menu. Make sure the microphone volume and the volume knob are both turned up. If the red light is flashing, the microphone is not muted. If the red light stays solid, it’s muted. Once the microphone has been properly set, open the systems preferences menu on your Mac or Windows computer. In the audio input menu, select the Blue Yeti microphone and save it.
