Better Than I Expected & I Knew It Would Be Great.

We received a LeapPad for review purposes from Leapfrog and are already HUGE fans of LeapFrog's educational games, toys and videos. We did receive the LeapPad for review purposes, but the thoughts, opinions and my experience with the system that I express here are solely my own. We have had the Leapster Explorer for a year or so and my 4 and half year old loves it. We have about 8 or nine games for the Leapster Explorer and several of the Leaplets you can download, so I would think it's fair to say we know the learning system pretty well and really are fans of the Leapster Explorer... thus my anticipation of the new LeapPad. I was excited to see how LeapFrog was going to top it, so to speak. I had no idea that the LeapFrog LeapPad would be as great as it is or anticipate how quickly my little one would take to it. I will just highlight the things we like best about the LeapPad and anything we don't like... What We Like: *Overall size and feel of the device. It's kid friendly without being too bulky. The screen is big & bright and it's really neat how you can customize your sign in with a picture. *Built in camera. In the Leapster Explorer it's an add-on and in my opinion makes the device a little bulky. We leave ours on all the time and since it is on there, the case designed for the Leapster Explorer doesn't zip all the way around easily. *Interactivity: My 4.5 year old loves the fact that you can twist, turn and shake it to interact in the games. She got a super huge kick out of the fact that you blow into the microphone to blow dry your pet in the PetPad app. *The Apps & Games: As I mentioned above, we have begun to build up quite the library of books, leaplet games and cartridge games for our Leapster Explorer and those games can be used on the new LeapPad. From my 4.5 year olds perspective, there are lots of fun games to play. From my perspective as a parent, I like the fact I can shop for games, etc. based on what area of learning I would like for my child to focus on. *Adjust To Your Child's Learning: Just like the Leapster Explorer, the games have various levels which automatically adjust to your child learning level and progress. *Extra Stylus: The stylus can be tethered or not and you get a back-up one in case you lose or break one. What We Don't Like: *Invest In Some Good Rechargeable Batteries: Like any battery-powered handheld gaming or learning device, it does seem to run through batteries fairly quickly. We plan on investing in some really good rechargeable batteries. *Tethered Stylus: I know a lot of parents will really like the option to tether the stylus, but for my 4.5 year old, we noticed than when she has the stylus tethered, she holds it with an improper "pencil-grasp" and really seems to hold the stylus very awkwardly... this is the case for the Leapster Explorer as well. Untethered she doesn't seem to have any problems and she holds the stylus lightly and with a "proper pencil-grasp". As parents who had a little one whose grasp didn't develop naturally, this is important to us, we will risk losing a stylus. I just wanted to point this out, it has nothing to do with the educational value or quality of the LeapPad... just something that quickly affect a little one who is just learning printing skills. Age Recommendations: My opinion would be the manufacturer's suggested starting age of 4. One for the safety and handling aspect...this is almost a $100 (& worth it) item and really I think that waiting until 4 can really make sure your child gets what they should out of the LeapPad and protects your investment a bit. I know my daughter would have been much rougher on the system a year ago than she is now. Also, all of the games, etc. that are for the Explorer items are for 4 and up, some even older. We did have our Leapster Explorer at 3.5, but my daughter just now gets how to work the camera and make stories, etc. on her own. I'm not saying a 3 year couldn't play the games... my kiddo could (with some help), I just feel like waiting until as close to 4 as possible might be better. Overall Thoughts: I would definitely recommend the LeapPad to someone looking for a fun learning system for their child. It's a great supplement to things they may be learning at school or home and is a fun way for them to learn touchpad and over all "techy" skills that they will need to know. It's a huge hit at our house and my 4.5 year old did state that she likes it better than her Leapster Explorer, which was a total shock to me.

We did not order the leappad from Walmart. We ordered it through Leapfrog.com on Monday. No one else had it so we can order it at the time.We did over night shipping. When we order the leappad bundle for $159.99. The bundle pack is two games and a $20.00 app center. We also order the headset for $12.99 The headset is very good. He plays his Leappad every day. This toy is awesome. He will take pictures and they turn out great too. I am very happy with this product and glad we got it for him.

I didn't think it was possible for LeapFrog to come out with a tech toy more comprehensive than the Explorer. Somehow they've outdone themselves with LeapPad. While we received one from LeapFrog for review purposes (all options are 100% my own), I plan to purchase a 2nd for Christmas for my daughter. With the biggest, brightest screen yet and the built-in tilt sensor, it's apparent out of the box LeapPad is a winner. Tilt it and the pet goes sliding across the screen making the kids giggle. And while it's fun for them to take pictures and videos of themselves and their family and create an "All About Me" story featuring their favorite subject, LeapPad lives up to the educational expectations typical of a LeapFrog product. For example, the interactive books include three reading levels which automatically adjust as your child progresses. Completely customizable, users can create a profile complete with a picture of themselves making even the home screen fun as they sign in by clicking on their own picture. The pad works both with fingers and a stylus, and luckily a stylus tether is included. On of my favorite features as an educator is "Pet Pad," and included app allowing users to play with and customize their pets. While some like "Flingo" are fun using the tilt sensor to fling your pet, "Trick Time" offers handwriting practice forcing small fingers to trace letters accurately before moving on. I would absolutely recommend LeapPad for it's intended age group, 4-9 and look forward to having two (and avoiding arguments).

Power up issues with 2 units, now no refund

Looked for the hottest toy out there this Christmas- the Leappad. We couldn't find it local, but I came across it here two days before Christmas, so I figured, great a late present. Received it and the kids loved it! Every few days they had an issue powering it up, but when i would try it, it would turn on, and figured they forgot to charge the batteries, or some such thing. Then it happened right when I was with them, and sure enough, push the power button and no response. I called in and talked to a tech, he had me remove the batteries and clean the connections with an eraser, I complied, knowing this would not fix it, but of course it powered up. I thanked him, but told him we both knew this was not the issue since it hadn't powered up even with the adapter plugged in. Upon pressing him, he admitted that this was an issue they were dealing with on other leappads, and he assured me they would take care of it if it happened again. Sure enough, a day or two later it happened again. They kindly replaced the unit with a new one (note: with no statement that if I took another one I could not get a refund if the next one failed). You guessed it- the new one failed the first morning. I immediately called and asked for a refund, offering to pack up all the parts from the original and second one if they would send me a box. I was told that in reward for me giving them another chance, they would not issue a refund because I had a replacement, refunds only given with the original!!! I'm not happy, and I will continue to tell my story until I get a refund!! Thanks, Dean

LeapPad Explorer Tablet - A mom's perspective

Customer review by TKMommy

Hi, I am a mother to 2 kids, 3 ½ and 6 and write at MommyGoggles.com I like to think of the new LeapPad Explorer as the iPad for kids. Books, games, video, pictures, apps – and lots more! The screen quality on the LeapPad Explorer is bright and amazing! With Tucker being left handed, one of the first things that I looked at, was to see if the attached stylus is made for right handed, left handed, or versatile for both. This was one thing that we loved about the original Leapster verses the new Leapster Explorer. Unfortunately the LeapPad Explorer is made for right handed kids, with no option to switch it over to the left side like the Leapster Explorer had, however the attached stylus is a nice length so it can be used right handed or left. The only drawback is that if your child is left handed, the string from the stylus will lay directly over the screen. APPS There are 4 apps included when you buy the LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer. From the award winning educational toy company comes LeapPad, the learning tablet just for kids. With a built-in camera, and a library of 100+ games and activities, the durable LeapPad features innovative apps that inspire creativity and turn reading into fun and games. It’s a new way to learn, a new way to play – a new way to unlock your child’s potential! CAMERA There are a lot of games within the LeapPad Explorer. One that Tucker has a lot of fun with , as did Kambry, is the LeapPad Camera and Video Recorder. With this, they can take a picture using the camera on the back, and go in to the LeapPad Photo Lab and play around with the images they take. ART STUDIO I am pretty impressed with the quality of the pictures for a kids’ learning toy. Before I handed the LeapPad back to Tucker, I thought I’d play around, then show him what I made. Here’s what had him giggling for a while. They can take pictures of each other and add fun things to the pictures. Maybe Kambry wants to be a pirate – she can create her own fairy tale. BOOKS The LeapPad Explorer has amazing interactive books. This has to be probably my favorite feature of the LeapPad! Within the ‘My Books’ menu, there is a bookshelf where you can pick out what book they want to read, or read along with. GLOSSARY If your little one doesn’t know how to pronounce the word, no worries, there is a glossary that when you tap on the word – it literally sounds it out for them! All you have to do is tap on a word and it will sound it out for you, as well as use it in a sentence. Video of glossary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMjnDawXY0c CARTRIDGES The LeapPad Explorer has a cartridge slot. One thing that I was curious about was ‘Do you have to buy all new cartridges if you already have Leapster Explorer cartridges?’ The answer is NO! You can use those cartridges that your kids use with their Leapster Explorer, with the LeapPad. LeapPad works with all Leapster Explorer™ and LeapFrog Explorer™ cartridge games and downloadable apps—more than 100 learning adventures await!* Touch the screen with a finger, tap it with the stylus or turn, twist and shake the tablet for exciting motion-based play! GAMES As with the Leapster Explorer, the LeapPad Explorer has games. One of my kids’ favorite games is Jewel Train 2. This is a fun game that involves the kids thought process, as well as their memory. I have found myself playing this when the kids are in bed. Hey, at least I admit it. Overall: WE LOVE the LeapPad Explorer!

Just wondering how is the battery life on the leappad. Do they last a while or run out very fast where its best to have it plugged in if using. I'm looking for something my little girl can play when we go to hockey games so it has to run off batteries. she has a vtect vsmile pocket which works great off the batteries so looking to upgrade but don't want a battery monster. Thank you

  • A. an energizer battery would take my son 2-3 days to finish it, it's when he's been playing with it for 3 consecutive days nonstop a day. 5-6 days if he would just play it when he remembers it and hes been busy playing with some other toys.

  • A. The LeapPad runs on 4 AA batteries. My son has had his for about a month or so now and I think the battery life has been very good. He plays a lot and I we don't have to replace them too much. I can't give an amount of time they last but the LeapFrog site says 8 hours. I would guess its close to that.

Hello, Does the child HAVE to use the stylus, or can they touch the screen with their fingers as a way to play the games?
by TashaL 10/5/2011

  • A. He or she can use their finger for some of the games, but for some things like the letter tracing and pinpointing objects, you kind of need the stylus for those types of activities. Also, the touchpad is more responsive to the stylus than to a fingertip.
