Leap Frog: My Discovery House [Video Review]

My son received the My Discovery House for his first birthday.  It is a very simple toy, with moving doors and windows, a light switch, a couple of birds. etc.  For a child who is obsessed with doors and light switches this toy entertains him really well.

He played with this in the beginning for a long time.  It was a lifesaver during a recent long car ride, where he played with it for over an hour!   But, I have stopped giving it to him as it doesn’t keep his attention like it used to. I expect that I can bring it out every so often and he will love it again [see the update to this review below].

The birds on the roof “talk.” [See video]  The little bird has a cute high pitched voice, but the bigger bird has a low adult voice.  It’s rather amusing, but I feel like it could have been a little less of a man voice even though it is the bigger bird. My husband loves when the man’s voice belts out, “TWEEEET.” It’s become an inside joke in our house now and he walks around and will randomly go, “TWEET.”

All in all, we like this toy.  My son loved it at first and he really was entertained.  He did get bored with it after a few days, but as I said, I think it will come back in rotation soon enough.


We recently took this toy on a family vacation. Because it had worked so well in the car before we decided to try it again. It held our 1-year-old son’s attention for multiple hours during the long car ride to our destination. Once again, multiple hours.

This kept him happy and us sane!  And, it was a hit with his 3 and 8 year old cousins for the week we stayed with them. We were really surprised by how popular this was.

UPDATED RATING: 5 out of 5 stars. We strongly recommend.
