Raise you hand if you love LeapFrog! :::hand raised:::
Everyone in our family loves LeapFrog, and our LeapPad tablet for kids has been a kid-favorite for the last couple of years. I always liked it, too…but the new LeapPad Platinum is even better, and (dare I say it?) leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessor in terms of speed, functionality, and value. We love this tablet, you guys.
If you’re familiar with the older LeapPad tablet, you know that is brought fun and educational games to your kids. The LeapPad Platinum does this, but more. Here are a few of my favorite new features on the LeapPad Platinum:
- Bigger screen (also, it could just be me, but it seems like the touch-screen interface is more sensitive and easier to use than the old one)
- Learning Library with more than 1,000 games
- Kid-Safe Web – kids can use LeapSearch to browse age-appropriate content (my kids love getting to choose videos on their own, but there are parental controls that will let you fine-tune the settings, too)
- Extra durable – with a shatter-proof screen and a wrap-around bumper, it’s built to withstand kids (I’m still going to add a protective case to ours, though, because…kids)
- Better quality photos and videos
- Connect with friends on a peer-to-peer enabled LeapPad to play games together
Maybe one of the coolest new features, though, is the addition of Imagicard. These are physical cards, the size of playing cards, that the kids can use interactively with their LeapPads. They take a picture of the card and it comes to life on their screen though fun games and activities. The cards come in cute little tins the characters are ones your kids will know (thins Paw Patrol and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
I asked Claire to talk to me about her new LeapPad, and here’s her take on the LeapPad Platinum (also, here’s her take on slobber, which apparently she DOES. NOT. WANT. on her LeapPad):
