When we had Kambry’s 4th birthday party, we also had a fun event where the little ones could check out some new LeapFrog products. While it was a birthday party for 2 girls; 4 and 6, we were able to have some fun with kids ranging anywhere from 4 to 8. We had a blast letting them check out some LeapFrog products.
One product that the kids were able to check out was the Tag Solar System Adventure Pack.

I love our solar system. I love looking up at the sky. My kids (ages 4 and 6) love looking in to ‘outer space’. I was really excited to see the Tag Solar System Adventure Pack. From my personal experience, it is a great tool to learn about the solar system and for little ones to get their ‘leg in’ on learning about the other planets, however my only drawback to this is that the questions and keys that this asked were a bit out of even our adult age range. My son is 6 1/2, is in kindergarten, can read a book like no other, is above his class for learning and reading, but the things that that Tag Solar System Adventure Pack were a bit above the 4-8 range. We had kids as young as 4 years old and up to 10 years old – and even adults in their 30’s that were questioning the age range of this map.
Family friendly? Yes. Fun friendly? Yes. The age range, in our opinion, is more than 4 – 8. We feel that it’s more like 7 – 1- age range. My little ones are aware of the solar system, however 4 years old is a bit young to start with this set just based on the questions that the tag asked. It would ask to point to one of the dwarf planets (which, at 6 years old, my son was like ‘what?’). It would ask questions about the orbits, which I could only answer a few of the questions and I am an adult. I love the overall concept of the Tag Solar System Adventure Pack, but the age range, in my opinion, is a bit off. Loads of fun and great for family time to learn all about our planets together.
