In addition, Blue’s Clues & You! characters will soon be featured as part of LeapFrog’s award-winning LeapBuilders® line. These smart, easy-to-hold building blocks offer an innovative take on classic block play by combining technology and interactive curriculum-based learning content. Kids can combine the new LeapBuilders Blue’s Clues & You! learning blocks with other LeapBuilders sets that include an electronic Smart Star™ cube. The Smart Star will respond with fun sounds, educational songs and learning phrases that enhance building play. From a school to a train to an 81-piece blocks box, kids will be able to build with the Blue’s Clues & You! characters they love.
