My Review:
This is seriously the cutest picnic basket I have ever seen! A perfect way to introduce toddlers and young preschoolers to imagination play, all while learning concepts like shapes and counting, manners, dramatic play and motor skills.
 Brightly colored, the Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket definitely got the attention of the two youngest children in my family child care program (16 and 19 months old). They loved the voice that plays when you open and close the basket, and loved mainly filling it and dumping, but had so much fun doing so. My girls also love it, and regularly have picnics in our living room, complete with singing, "The Ants Go Marching".
 The music on the basket is fun, engaging and not at all irritating after playing repeatedly. We have been a huge Leapfrog Family for several years, and very extremely happy with the Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket! 
Overall, it is a great product that I highly recommend you pick up during the upcoming Christmas shopping season!
BUY IT: You can purchase the LeapFrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket online at Leapfrog Canada for $29.99. It is also available at your favorite local toy retailer.
