LeapFrog Presents: A Tad of Christmas Cheer features one of LeapFrog's most recognizable characters, Tad, as he comes to terms with his changing family. A new baby is due to join his household any day, and Tad is feeling neglected as his mother sets up the baby's room and prepares for the little bundle of joy. The constant discussions about the baby are also frustrating to Tad, and he begins to feel jealous even though his new sibling has not been born yet. When a magical bug visits Tad and promises to grant him a wish, Tad does not hesitate before asking his new friend to take him away for good. His wish changes the town of Alphaville, erasing his existence and transforming the lives of his family and friends. The little bug shows Tad that life without him leaves a huge void in everyone's lives, and Tad begins to realize the integral role that he plays in his family.
