Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for infants! I love this toy for my son! Only thing I wish is that they had my sons name on their list of names for the toy to say. His name is Oliver they should have it on the list.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only one real complaint Personalization is the key in a toy like this. So when I got the un recognized name statement its a big negative. My sons name is David, how can that not be recognized. If a name that simple is left out how many other children can't use there friend properly. Please fix this issue

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Growth potential The learning potential of this toy is amazing! It not only sooths a 6 month old but grows with the child. The personification of the toy is a major plus in my book. I would recommend "My Pal Scout" to anyone with an infant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter is in love! My daughter just turned a year, and she's been LOVING stuffed animals, so I figured it was time to get her Violet. She absolutely loves the different features, and really understands how it works to turn her on and off, and how to get her favorite songs to play. I'll admit, it's a little creepy to hear Violet say my daughter's name the same way in every possible situation (do they really have to stop the song just to say her name?), but overall, it's a winner in our house. I highly recommend for your babies who are transitioning to toddlers!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep buying it We have bought Scout twice for our son Kaleb he loves it! He always has and after almost 4 years it's still his favorite toy The only reason we have bought two is because we had misplaced the first one and ran out and bought a second. Which was good since it had been a couple years and it had two new songs which were Itsy Bitsy Spider and BINGO. Both scouts work great still, Except the fact that the newest one he had chewed the paw with the music so it's hard to get it going, So we will be buying a third one in hopes to have Itsy and Bingo. As far as the grows with the Child statement, Thats were i think it lacks but not enough to bring it down in stars. There isn't new songs that i've seen based on age, and the downloadable songs don't have him singing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little One's Best Friend My little girl was given a My Pal Violet the day after she was born. She's nearly three now and Violet is STILL her favorite toy. She loves to sing along with the songs and will not sleep without Violet and her bedtime music. In fact she loves Violet so much that when we're watching LeapFrog DVDs she gets upset if I try to pick one that doesn't have Violet in it. I cannot even begin to tell you how highly I recommend this toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas Present My mother bought this for my oldest son as a Christmas gift 2 years ago and he still loves it! We use it every night at bedtime. My husband programmed the name and favorite foods, animals, etc. and Scout has really helped my son learn to recognize his name. Now our other son is playing with it and we are going to buy him his own Scout so he can do the same. Great gift!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toy my son is 8 months. he had the toy for about 2 months and he kind of likes it. he hugs the toy and presses the buttons but I don't think he understands what the bear is saying yet. I like the toy, my fave feature is when he (spout) spells my sons name. the toys is a good investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gift ever! My 6 month old son received this today from a family friend and we couldn't get it out of the package fast enough for him.... He was instantly enamored with it. He hasn't let it be far from eyesight since he got a hold of it. First time he's reacted like this with a toy and its the cutest thing I've ever seen! I love how it says his name and that I can switch up the songs. I will be buying this for all my pregnant friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Son's Favorite Toy This toy became a constant companion of my little boy. The music mode is great for car rides and nap time. He learned a lot from this toy and it survived his 1 1/2 years of constant use very well. It was still in great shape for my daughter who also loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good learning toy I bought scout for my granddaughter. She absolutly loves it. The only complaint I have is if the childs name is not a common one, it will not be able to say the childs name which takes away the personal touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for special needs child It knows her name (because I easily programmed it to), it says very nice things to her, it encourages her to play and sing. My daughter already had the purple violet character, we purchased the green scout as another "friend" for them. I would buy one in every color if they made more than the two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from She loves it! However, I don't like that every time we plug in for downloads, it erases what we previously had on there. I wish it didn't do that. I wish it had other games, stories, etc to download. We use it mostly to get her to sleep--she loves the nighttime songs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute My daughter loves Violet. I just wish it would have more options online to upload to her. It needs more songs and other things she can learn when she plays with her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Violet and Scout (My Pal toys) My two LOVE their Vi-Vi's so much, at ages 2 and 3 they both still use them frequently. I'm so glad the product exists, I just have two recommendations to make this awesome toy even better: 1: A slightly louder setting (normally I don't want to hear toys blaring out music but Violet is quite quiet). 2: A light in one of the paws or perhaps the collar so it can be used past just the baby phase (and for when kids get scared of the dark). Great product, we love Vi-Vi!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dancing scout I absolutely love Scout, almost as much as our Rosie does. Her little face lit up like fireworks when she first opened him up. She's rarely without him now. At 14 months, she's routinely hiding under the dining room table while babbling away at Scout or randomly yelling out the word "dancing!" before squeezing his don't to play music. And at bedtime she pushes the hearts on his tummy until he says "I love you", which is when she hugs him and says awww. :) He is 100% Rosie's best friend, second only to our family dog. Sooooo thankful we got her Scout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little guy LOVES this! My oldest had gotten a Scout when he turned one so naturally my youngest got one as well. He loves it just as much as his brother did & still does. Also wanted to add that the newest Scout that was purchased ended up being defective (speaker sounded as if blown) so I got a hold of Leapfrog's customer service & they were AMAZING!! They apologized & sent out a new one free of charge! Needless to say I was shocked but very thankful. Will definitely be a return customer with this AWESOME company & have been recommending to anyone that will listen!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This toy is amazing for my 1 year old! This toy is so precious and I love that it pronounces her name Kenzie perfectly. It's amazing how easy you can customize and change it anytime you want. My daughter actually received both Scout and Violet for Christmas and I'm glad she did, it instantly became her favorite toy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but... My daughter loves this adorable puppy but we cannot get the software to open properly for us to customize it. weve been trying for days. We uninstall, reinstall, use a different computer...it doesnt work. The program installs but then just wont open. I'd give it 5 stars if we could get it to do what its supposed to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift!!!! My son's godparents got this for him and his face lit up the first moment the toy said his name. I can see him enjoying this toy for a few years. I love how you can personalize the toy with your child's name and tunes you enjoy. Sometimes the music on toys can be so annoying, this toy has good music that won't get on my nerves after a week of hearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gift ever! My sweet neighbor gave my daughter the Violet puppy pal as a Christmas gift. I cant get over how adorable and educational this toy is. Its so special that the puppy says and spells her name, you get to pick special songs, colors and much more! A great gift for any toddler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Her favorite animal is a goat! I was really surprised with all the personalization options! Luckily my daughter's shortened name is Ella so I was able to select that one. She absolutely loves this little puppy and kisses it all the time. As she gets older, I will be able to let her help me choose the songs! I also really liked that they had Christmas songs to choose since it's the season. Super soft, fun and friendly voice, a really great toy for a special toddler. **It also plays 2,5, or 10 minutes of lullabies for bed time. It turns off automatically when the songs are done. Great for night night time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ziva Pal Scout I love this toy. She already according to her pediatrician is 19 mo. and 1 week old brain at 15 mos. old... I don't think she would be that far ahead if she didn't get Scout for Christmas...She loves him when its bed time for the lullabies though I wish there was an option for parents to download their own music from like YouTube type thing to put on there because there is a lullaby that she likes that isn't available on the leap connect. She's already counting two and three but not one for some silly reason. I think all the playing time i give her with her scout pal is what has her so far ahead. He is a great toy and my little girl wouldn't dare get caught with out him trailing behind her some how...LOL keep up the good work LeapFrog cuz im gonna be using you alot for her to grow with and have toys that will help her grow in one way or another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Pal Scot Just bought one, I haven't even gotten it home to my son. I can't believe the level of technology in children's toys these days. They are almost at the level of my childhood dreams. I suggestion for the next generation of this toy, consider adding a webcam and wifi. So parents can talk to their child through the toy. Perhaps with digital voice alteration to the persona of the toy, or a wifi link to a larger online database of toys and conversations for the child. I can't wait to get home and see him play with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scout I absolutely love the product (as does my 18 month old). However, it is very difficult to clean. You cannot remove the battery pack, so it is only able to be cleaned by hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'secret weapon' we have 5 kids and the baby just got scout a few months ago. we love it, it can keep him entertained for a long time. He also puts himself to sleep with scouts bedtime music on, like a lightswitch, my husband calls it ' the secret weapon' because sammy doesnt like going to sleep, and no other lullaby music seems to do the same thing. he's nine months old now and I can see us using scout for years. we went on vacation and I accidentally left scout at home, the whole family was upset when we realized. ( all four other kids and dad)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these toys I got one when my first was a baby (my pal scout) which my secodn son inherited. Last Christmas my thid child got a my pal Violet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Pal Scout I bought one for each of my grandsons...and while one is too young to appreciate it, the 18 month old loves his. He claps his hands and sings the songs with Scout, and it's so nice to hear it say his name and teach him how to spell it. I don't know who likes it more, me or him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I adore it! This was a Christmas gift, and I am still absolutely thrilled with it. I love the level of personalization. My daughter has a unique name, so I wasn't expecting the little dog to be able to say it. I was more than impressed when I found out that, not only can the little dog pronounce her name correctly, but we were able to input our own spelling so the dog can spell it correctly, as well. The personalization program is so easy to use, too! All of her favorite songs, foods, animals, everything can be programmed in and incorporated into the dog's play. The night I set it up, I couldn't stop playing with it. Maybe I'm just easily entertained, but this is probably one of the coolest toys I've ever seen, and I feel cheated that they didn't have stuff like this when I was a kid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update on Scout After having Scout for over a year and a half, my granddaughter still loves him just as much as she ever did. (Our family had a dog named Scout for over 19 years so I just had to have him.) The only improvement that could be made would be if there was new music added. There are so many foods, animals and colors to choose from that this is perfect. I bought Violet for my greatniece for Xmas and she loves it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite toy! My boyfriend and I bought Scout for his son for Christmas this past year (he was 15 months old at the time). He pretty much ignored it at first which was such a disappointment for us because we were thrilled with it. His name is Carson and we had no problem adding his name to Scout and we were super excited it asked for his favorite food and animal because he was going through a "waffle" phase. But in the last 4-6 weeks Carson has become obsessed with Scout. We changed his food to eggs because that's his new favorite and he can't go to sleep unless Scout plays him 10 minutes of bedtime music. He never puts the thing down and we are so excited about Scout!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute and playful My son loves it! After waiting for weeks for it to arrive finally we have it. Leapfrog does not ship to our country but I find ways to have it here and so happy for the product, the parcel are all good. The color is lovely and the overall quality is superb! My only problem now if I have some technical problems I cannot give it to the service area, crossing my fingers things like that will not happen. :) Thank you, hoping you ship to my country soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional, but doesn't stay clean My son has had a My Pal Scout since he was about 3 months old. He has a common name, so his name was on the list that you can use with Scout. The newer Scouts/Violets with the heart button on the belly sing more songs, which is great. My biggest complaint so far is the inability to thoroughly clean the toy. I have been thought almost 15-20 Scouts in the 3 years my son has had this toy, mostly due to cleaning issues. Because Scout goes everywhere he goes, he has been peed on, pooped on, puked on, dragged in dirt, mud, and stained from baby slobber/food/milk. I have a lengthy way to clean it, but the method is not backed up by Leapfrog, which is understandable. In short: Pros: - Teaches your child's name & personalizes with your child's favorites - Talks about colors, feelings, and animals - Plays bedtime music in 2 minute, 5 minute, and 10 minute intervals - Sings simple songs and nursery rhymes (Mary Had a Little Lamb, ABC Song, Itsy Bitsy Spider, etc) Cons: - Only learns the names on a set list that is rarely, if ever, updated. So if the child's name is spelled or pronounced uniquely, its probably not on the list - Allows a limited selection of sing-a-long songs, bedtime songs, and instrumental songs (5 of each) - Can only be gently surfaced cleaned. You cant put it in the washing machine due to its electronics box.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised My grandson's name is Leif pronounced Lafe as in Europe and almost everywhere but the US. This toy does not pronounce his name correctly and does not let you put the name in phonetically. No where on the box are you told this might happen, you are lead to believe it will pronounce your child's name. Your options are to call your child Baby or Buddy etc. I did not buy this toy to call my grandson "Baby". If you are looking for a learning toy that will say your child's name correctly and you don't have a stock name you are out of luck. This is a very disappointing toy and will not stay in our toy box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL! Our youngest daughter received "Vi" for Christmas from her grandparents. We all love her! I love that our daughter's name (very unusual) was on the list and I loved that you could correct the pronunciation and the spelling so that everything was personalized just for her. Her expression was priceless the first time Violet called her by name and said that her favorite food was toast too! Can wait to add apps as she grows. Keep it up, Leap Frog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Violet was the best gift ever I love this toy and so does my daughter she plays with it all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Violet This was a replacement purchase. I purchased two of these a year ago for new twin granddaughters. They sleep with these, take them in the car with them and carry them around all day now that the girls are 19 months old. One came up missing and we think it fell out of their car so I purchased a replacement and the look on my granddaughters face was worth the replacement cost when I gave her Violet and it was speaking her name again instead of her sisters. I purchased my first one four years ago for my oldest granddaughter and she still enjoys hers also. You can go in and change the songs whenever you want to and personalize them. It is a wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!!!!!! I just purchased this for my neice as her x mas gift. I went on to the UK store website for LeapFrog as i would be sending it to England and i wasnt sure if i got it here in the US, if it would work properly (software and accessories). I odered it and in less than a week it was delievered to my brothers house and he has already set up for her, with her favorite colour, food and songs and even to say her name! My brother and his Girlfriend said it is awesome and that she will love it as she likes nosy toys lol! Im so happy that it got there quickly with no problems and it will be set up for her and ready when she opens it on x mas day! Very please that its features are working as advertised. Also happy that they are accessories you can buy to extend the learning capabilities so it will last for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My two year old loves Scout I am really glad we bought my two year old this for his birthday. We have two Scout apps on our iPad so he was already familiar with him and was really excited to receive this toy. I love the way it says his name a lot and really emphasizes friendship. The songs are really cute and fun. The only thing I would change is the way the nighttime music works. He tried using it to sleep and we would turn the music on but then when he hugged scout it would turn off when another button got pushed. It would be nice if the nighttime music mode was something the parent could switch on in the back that locked all the other buttons. I started having to make Scout "go to sleep" (turn him off) in order for him to sleep with him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product My daughter got Scout as a Christmas gift when she was four months old. She loved it. It turned out to be her favorite toy. The lullabies would sooth her, she no longer need her night light, she had Scout. We would take him wherever we went, and she would just be enthralled with him. She stayed calm when she had him, and he would calm her down. She started to count a little before we got rid of him. It was garbled, but it was clear what she was trying to do, and it was all thanks to Scout. She had Scout until she was almost a year old, but unfortunately she had an accident, and we couldn't wash Scout, we had to throw him out. We just bought My Pal Violet for her, for Christmas this year, she is now two, and we just know she's going to love Violet just as much as she loved Scout. I highly recommend this product. This is just an absolutely wonderful product for kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Friend My Daughter Has I got Scout for my daughter when she was 2 months old. She is 3 now. This is her favorite toy in the world. It taught her how to spell her name. It talks to her and she talks back about her favorite foods and stuff. It sings with her. It has a song with her name in it that teaches. It has a feature to play music for 5 or 10 minutes of bed time music and yawns like it is ready to go to sleep when you push his left paw twice then you can play bed time music. She carries him every where. She can not sleep without him. Scout is over 3 years old and still works great. I wish I could wash him, but because the battery pack is attached to him, I can not. He will give your child joy for a very long time. My daughter just turned 3 and can count to 20, can spell her name(Isabella), and says her A,B,Ds. She doesn't say c, she says d. Scout is Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gift Ever! I purchased this for my daughter's 1st birthday, and she is so in love. The first time that she heard the toy say her name, her little face lit right up. It was so adorable! This toy was very easy to hook up to our computer and download her name, songs, favorites, etc. into. I also love that I can reconnect the toy to the Leap Frog web site & change the songs & favorites information, as she grows. I think this is a really great toy for what I paid, and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest toy ever! Best toy I have ever bought. You can program it to your child's likes. It also can be programmed to say and sing your child's name. My daughter got it at 8 months and is going to 3 and still plays with it every single day. I now give one to every friend who's is expecting a child as a shower gift. Best toy ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for bedtime I bought Scout for my grandson and violet for my granddaughter. I love these and my grandchildren have loved them. In fact I just redid Scout for my grandson - I like to change the songs and change his favorite food, favorite color, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Every kid is different I bought this for my daughter, since I was going back to work after being home full-time. She likes the light up collar and a couple of the songs. Although the doll has been personalized, my kid isn't wild about it. However, this is not a reflection on the product. I find the software very user-friendly and had the toy easily personalized within minutes. The content is quite good and I have found that more choices appear when I update. My only concern is the same as most other parents: is there a way to remove the electronic portion of the toy so we can put it in the washer?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I bought Scout with the direct intention for it to become my sons best friend. We got it before he was born and my son is now 2. He will not go anywhere without Scout and it has helped him transition into going between mommy and daddy's houses as the one toy he can take with him. I recommend or gift this toy to everybody who becomes pregnant!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Toy My son is now 10 months and he got his Scout when he was 2 months old. He LOVES his Scout. Scout sleeps at the foot of his crib, every morning we give Scout a big hug and then he comes out to play. I love how we can customize the songs he sings, he says my son's name, and we can program and re-program him for the things my son likes. Best toy we have purchased so far and it grows with him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must Have Violet was purchased for my 3mo old little girl and at the time and she took to it like a fish to water. True she didn't really know what she was listening to but she was intrigued by the music and the lights. She is now 5mos and she responds to her name right away, when she sees the lights she is fixed on Violet and when Violet starts to sing her name to the rhythm of the background sounds with music she lights up with a HUGH smile! I must say to have purchased this at such a young age might have been hindsight, cause not a day goes by that Violet is on, singing and talking to my daughter does her face not glow!. I WOULD MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS TOY TO OTHERS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son's best friend My son LOVES Scout. He takes him everywhere with him. He got Scout for his birthday and will be 3 years old soon. Still his favourite toy. Only downside is it's not washable. A damp cloth for a surface clean doesn't always work. We are on our fifth Scout...wish they would figure out a way to unhook the computer portion of the toy so you could throw it in the washing machine. I hate having to replace them but my son absolutely loves his Scout.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bedtime Buddy My son loves his Scout, he sleeps with him every night. Some time if he wakes up in the middle of the night I hear the music start. Sometimes I can even hear him singing along before he falls back asleep. It is so cute. The only down sides is when it says my son's name all the music stops. There should be a way for the music to keep playing in the background when his name is used. Also a much larger selection of songs would be nice to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Impressed with Violet! This toy is still my daughter's favorite! She has an odd name, and Violet had it in her list! It was a gift given to her at Christmas (she was 6 months). She is now a year and she still LOVES it! She knows how to say her name, colors. and sing the tunes. We've already changed the preferences a few times as she grew and her likes/dislikes changed. She loves to dance with her and impresses everyone with her ability to repeat her. This is a great learning toy for even the youngest of leapers....her batteries last a long time and she is easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy My daughter got this when she was 1 year old. She is 3 yrs old now and is rediscovering Scout. She did not really like it at first and definitely did not want it for bedtime, but she loves that Scout knows her name. I have not updated it since she first got it and it would be nice if the adapter was somehow attached to the toy so that you do not misplace it. I have to go in and update it now. But this is a great learning toy. And so cute and sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy your baby/toddler will not outgrow! My daughter got this as a present when she was 1. She will be 3 soon and plays with it more than ever now. She memorizes the phrases and presses the paws looking for her favorite phrases/songs. Great toy! Great value! A good comfort toy & its educational. It took me almost 2 years to finally download her name & favorite food/color. I know she will be thrilled when she hears Violet say her name and I don't anticipate her outgrowing it anytime soon!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had to throw away My daughter got this toy for her birthday. After programming it, she became attached to it and loved to listen to the bedtime music at night. One night she got sick all over poor Violet. After using a damp cloth as the directions state and spraying the toy down with disenfectant, it still reeks. I contacted the company about other options towards cleaning this toy. I was told the damp cloth was it. Therefore, it went in the trash. It is unrealistic for a company to market a toy intended for young ones to cuddle and/or sleep with and not be washed if peed or thrown up on. I understand it is electronic, but it should be the pack needs to be removable so the toy can be washed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Violet! My husband and I bought Violet for our daughter a few months ago. I was very happy to immediately find my daughter's unique name. The first time she heard Violet say her name my daughter loved her. My only wish was Violet had some sort of "parental lock" on her. That way when my daughter rolls over and is almost asleep she does not get woken up with "I like sweet potatoes, do you?" I let my daughter cuddle with Violet at bedtime, but often she gets switched off the bedtime music when my daughter rolls over or even decides to play with her. Otherwise, I am very happy with Violet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inseparable Buddy Scout is my son's best buddy: Scout keeps him company at night (several times I have heard him wake up in his room, then the "night-time" music starts as my son has pressed the button to comfort himself and go back to sleep), and plays with him during the day (my son brings him out of bed and takes him everywhere, just having him for company or pressing the button to hear the fun songs). The music that you can select is all great and the personalized songs are brilliant. I can't think of a better gift for a young child (my son is a year-and a half and got this for his first birthday from his grandma). Whenever my son needs to go to bed in a different environment, having Scout there to keep him company and comfort him is invaluable and a huge advantage. Thank you, Leapfrog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just absolutly cant live without When my son was less then 4 months old i was looking around for a few Christmas presents and came across this i thought it was the cutest thing ever..only at less than 4 months old he loved it then and still loves it now at 18 months old..this thing went everywhere with us from day one and he has slept with it since day one. and when it goes missing you can find me going frantic. He has never fallen out of love with it..being 14 months old and being dragged around everywhere you can imagine how dingy it was..The only flaw i found with it is that it cannot go through the washer my son recently decided its necessary to run around nakey so of course he peed on his scout in a heavy attempt to clean it i got all the stains out but not the smell so we bought him a new one last night and i love this one even more it looks a little different but i like the new tummy feature and the new sayings its nice to hear something new and refreshing from scouts mouth. and i couldnt blame my son for instinctively peeing on his old one to get this better new one. still keeping the old one hoping it will air out eventually it can stay in his room for his bedtimes and he can have the new one for playing with

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Three Favorite Toys EVER! We bought this for our son when he was 6 months old and he liked the flashing light and music. Now that he is one year old he can push the buttons himself and has much more fun with his Scout. He dances and listens intently. Scout is not to big for my son to carry by himself and it is a toy that he independently seeks out to play with every day. At one point my son had the flu and the only thing that could stop his crying and lull him to sleep was the lullaby setting on Scout. I like Scouts voice- not annoying and just the right volume. There is a really cute video on youtube about the boy that does the voice recordings. Just search for the "Talking Toy Project: My Pal Scout". Can't miss it if Scout is part of your daily life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ACTUALLY A GOOD TOY Ignore my nickname on this one. It is from several other reviews that i thought were misleading or poorly designed. I really like this product. My child really enjoyed it too. He would lay in bed and try talking with Scout or just fall asleep, pressing his paw and listening to him. It would be nice if it could somehow be set up for multiple chidren as I have two boys close in age - but I can understand the difficulties in that. It would be nice if the audio was a little bit better - the personalized integration is good, fun and entertaining - but it could be formatted so it is a little smotther and not such a blatant insert of the personalized names. It would be nice if the online content were updated with new content periodically. Escpecially if it could be updated as my child grow - but for now the content is pretty much one size fits all - the interaction for a 1yr old is the same for a 3 yr old. This would give me a greater incentive to go to the LEap Frog site as well. Dont take my comments as critisism - they are just suggestions with the hope that someone at Leap Frog reads the reviews. Overall - it was a great investment that both my child and I like

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Daughter Adores Her Scout My dad bought this toy for our daughter last Christmas when she was 10 mos. old. My husband and I are purchasing another one this Christmas because she loves this toy so much that she's almost worn him out! Not to say that Scout isn't durable; she plays with him daily, still, and we just don't want to take the chance that something will happen to him! She loves the interactive features. We use the sleepy-time music feature every time she goes down for a nap and when she goes to bed at night. Wonderful toy, we highly recommend him! We have subsequently purchased other LeapFrog products because of her attachment to Scout and will continue to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome toy for boys and girls We bought our first Violet shortly after our daughter was born. She is absolutely in love with her pal Violet. We used it as a sleeping aid early on. We also used it as a security toy when our daughter started at her day care. Our daughter loves Violet so much that we went out and purchased a second one in case something ever happened to the original. The toy is priced fairly and is easy to use. Our day care lady even commented that she found the toy helpful because Violet would talk about all of our daughter's favourite things to do and eat. I highly recommend the purchase of this toy. In fact, I have recommended both Scout and Violet to friends and family and they too have purchased and enjoy the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We LOVE Violet! My daughter got Violet for Christmas from her grandmother, when she was about 9 months old. We love Violet. I love the personalization options. Her name is "Makenna", which you can't find anywhere on anything. Leap Frog had this spelling as an option. I was even able to pick a different spelling "Mckenna" for the pronounciation part because "Makenna" wasn't prounounced the way we prounounced it. She is only 14 months old right now, so we mostly use the music feature. We set the lullaby on 10 minutes and out she goes. Violet is also portable, so our bedtime music goes everywhere with us! I can't wait until she starts getting into the other features more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Item breaks after a couple months We had 2 of these die on us in the past 3 months. We received 1 as a gift for our 1 year old. She loves it and it helps put her to sleep. After about a month of regular use, it started to skip and play different music that what was selected. Hooked it back up to the computer and selected the songs again. It kept skipping and played the same notes over and over. Replaced the batteries and did the same thing. Then it just died, no songs would play and it would not even turn on. We bought a second one because she loved the first one so much. Now yesterday it started doing the same thing again, and of course we did not keep the receipt to send back for warranty. Don't get me wrong I like this product but I don't want to buy another one, just so it can do the same thing again. Has great features but lousy internal parts. THEY NEED TO FIX THIS ISSUE......

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Violet's kind of a ho-hum toy I purchased Violet for my 8 month old for Christmas. At first she was excited, but as the songs got old, she got bored with it. She does like that it says her name though. I have updated the songs about once or twice a month, she gets all excited and crawls all over it when the songs are new but again as the songs get familiar, she gets bored. There are only so many songs, so I'm out of new songs - Some of the songs on the site are Christmas songs. It would be nice if they added new songs once in a while to keep her fresh and engaging. My little girl absolutely loves Violet when things are new and fresh. She has worn out a set of batteries already because it’s easy for her to bump start Violet. It would be nice if Violet was more updatable though so that I didn't have a child bored with a toy and could keep her learning and interest though new discovery. I thought I would be able to add new songs to keep her attention or seasonal songs because of the box statement of over 30 downloadable songs, and so that part she and I are both a little disappointed in. (Some of the down loadable songs are already loaded on the toy.) You can only hear the same song and sayings over and over so many times. ((Hint: Please add some new stuff to the site to update this toy!)) ~ Violet's cute and snuggly, but she's seriously repetitive! ~ For a child that doesn't handle change well, this is a very good toy, but if your child embraces change and is favoring musical toys, this toy just doesn't cover it in our opinion. ~ My 5 year old and 6 year old have labeled Violet as boring as well. My 5 year old told me if she had to hear the same song again she was going to scream...I can't say as I blame her on that one! I’m feeling the same way. ~ If I wanted a toy that played the same song over and over, I wouldn’t have bought one that had downloadable music! ~ The only nice part is that there are lots of animals and foods to download and learn, but then again, you can only load one of them at a time as well. I just don't feel this is one of leapfrogs better products. ~ At least it was not overly expensive.

I love Violet! It was also really neat to get it to say her favourite food, animal, and colour and customize the songs on it. Very awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love Scout!! This Scout was given to my son as a Christmas present when he was just shy of 6months old. He absolutely LOVES this doll. A huge smile comes to his face when I hand it to him to play. I hope he continues to love it, especially when he gets old enough to really interact with him and realizing that the dog is personalized.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's great in theory... My son really isn't into Scout. He likes to snuggle with him, but as for the music and the activities, he could really care less. he is 2 years old and received it as a Christmas gift. I'm glad I didn't spend my own money on it. I think it is an excellent learning source, but not for my son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RUN...Do not WALK- to BUY THIS ADORABLE PAL! This is the most amazing toy I have come across in all my years of motherhood & now grandmotherhood! My mom bought Scout for her 1st Christmas last year...this puppy is adorable, the software download was simple, & she absolutely adores this puppy! We wake up with it, play all day with it, and wind the day down after bath with it listening to lullabyes. I cant say enough about this puppy-pal! It is the perfect gift for any baby or toddler! We have since bought Violet also, & she is just as precious. If we accidentally leave Scout at home, Violet is always in the car as a backup! A MUST have!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I absolutely love this toy. I bought for my infant son for Christmas. He is now 4 1/2 months old and loves his Scout. My son loves to listen to the songs and watch the blue light come on. My only complaint is I cannot program my son's name to Scout. My son's name is Butch. I understand it is a very old fashioned name but I truly wish Leap Frog would add it to Scout. Hopefully one day (before my son is to old for Scout) they will add it. Other than that I love Scout! My 4 yr old twin boys each have a Scout as well that they love. They think it is cool that their puppy dog knows their name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2 year old daughter LOVES Violet, and thanks to her she can spell her name. My newborn son got Scout for Christmas and my daughter has taken over him too! When she saw him she said "Green Violet!" I only wish they would add new songs to download to them... getting tired of the ones they have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my daughter's favorites!! My friend bought this for my daughter when she turned 1 last year and she still loves it. I love being able to personalize it and being able to change my selections. Unlike the FP dog thats sorta similiar. I love how an electronic toy is so soft and cuddly. My daughter looks just precious carrying Violet around with her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We got our daughter My pal Violet for christmas, when our daughter was 11 months old. She loves it!! After having it for 3 days, she already learned to say her own name, and bed time is alot easier. She sleeps with it every night. My favourite feature would have to be that Violet sings songs with your child's favourite food, color, and animal. Also that violet includes your child's name. I would definately recommend this toy to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bedtime "must have" for my son My son got this for Christmas a year ago when he was 7 months old. It's been almost a year now and Scout is a bedtime staple. He even travels with us. I love that he provides 2, 5 or up to 10 minutes of bedtime music. He has 2 volume settings, so you don't have to worry about him being too noisy. He also has good battery life. (We've only switched out once in the year with daily use). I definitely recommend this little friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fun, but looking for more. my child likes this toy. however, i wish that there were more names available, so she could have her name, or at least her nickname sang/said to her instead of just spelled. :( i've put in the request numerous times, but still no luck. hope leap frog gets on the stick and adds more names!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to keep Scout clean Santa gave Scout to my 9 month old daughter last year. She adores him, and I mean adores him. He goes everywhere. The last thing she looks for in bed and the first thing we hear every morning. He joins her for a morning nap and on every car journey. She loves to hear him saying her name and cuddles him with her dodie when she is tired. They're best friends. My four year old wants to know why Santa didn't give him and 'awsome' teddy too! I would definitely recommend him to anyone, nay everyonel! I have given him an overall rating of excellent, because he is. He amazing for children. My criticism is only that, a criticism... ...and my criticism is this, Socut is almost impossible to keep clean, and he gets very dirty very quickly, well ours does! The only way to wash him, because he can't be machine washed, is with a nail brush at the sink!! Home, job, 2 kids, 3rd one on the way; who has time for that!?! I have recently come across a product called 'Siege Teddy Bear Cleaner'. Spray on, wipe off, nuff said. It works!!! It's not expensive at E10 per bottle. Until Leapfrog can put their heads together and come up with a way to allow Scout all his electronic parts and be machine washable at the same time, this is the one to use. xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every one loves it! I was looking at this toy for a while, but figured my kid (3 years old) has outgrown it. Unfortunately my boy got really sick and I was ready to shower him with anything he wanted. But when asked, he always said "No. I do not want new airplane" or "No, not bunny." One day I was looking at LF website on my laptop and my sick kid pointed to the screen "I want this doggy." I ordered it right away. Scout is the best friend for my boy, he gets very excited when Scout says his name and he loves playing music when going to bed. Even older kids (8 and 10) like to cuddle with it now and then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL!!! My Pal Scout and My Pal Violet are HANDS DOWN the best toys I have ever purchased for my kids. They love and learn the songs, pick their own options to sing along, and the fact that each of their toys knows each of their names is so special. I can't count how many toys my kids have gone through and/or ignored. Only Scout and Violet have held their attention consistently since the day they were purchased. My kids just adore them. Sincerely, THANK YOU Leapfrog!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Great Toy Really happy with purchase. Son really likes the toy--engages him and he is only 5 weeks old. A little disappointed that our son's name was not on the list so he can not have his name spelled to him. I was under the impression that we could program his name into the toy, didn't realize that there is a list of names you have to choose from. I think the toy would be better if the parents could program the toy with their voices, this would engage the infants even more and then there would be no limitations on which names the toy can be programed with. Also...milk and formula should be added to the list of favorite foods..;)

My parents gave it to her a couple months before he first birtday and she is now almost 18 months and she stll loves this dog! It's helping her to learn her name and to clap. Loading new songs is very easy. It's such a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Baby Gift I have bought this toy for my friend's baby. We put it in his crib and could see how he was attracted to the bright toy. We set the toy to play music and the baby would make noises when music stopped and would calm down when music was played again. My friend's baby is three months old now and Scout is still his favorite toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy. My daughter received this as a gift for her first birthday. she absolutely loves it, can't put it down. It is so cool that you can upload her name onto it and it incorporates her name and her favorite things into the songs and greeting. I would recommend this to anyone as I know she will enjoy this toy for a very long time.
