NEW YORK and TORONTO, March 9, 2020 /CNW/ - LeapFrog® Enterprises, Inc. announced the expansion of its award-winning infant and preschool collection, anchored by an exciting feature line of toys based on Nickelodeon's hit preschool series Blue's Clues & You! LeapFrog's innovative, educational toys encourage a child's natural curiosity and love of learning with curriculum-based content that makes learning exciting! The new products were on display at the 2020 North American International Toy Fair® late last month.
"We're so excited to welcome Blue's Clues & You! to the LeapFrog family, so kids can continue learning with characters they love," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America, LeapFrog's parent company.
