    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.5 out of 5★by 395reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Great, Educational Kids' Tablet LeapFrog sent their new LeapFrog LeapPad2 Explorer for my family to review. We checked out some of the differences between this device and the original LeapPad and tested its functions and apps. If you are wondering whether to get a LeapPad2, just let your kids use your iPad, or skip tablets for kids altogether, here's our take:My educational philosophy is that outdoor activity and play is key for very young children. Despite being high-tech in my professional life, the early childhood teaching techniques I advocate are decidedly Pre-Industrial. Yet there are places where a thoughtful use of technology can enhance learning.Initial studies show that using a tablet can boost literacy scores in Kindergarteners and help children on the Autism spectrum improve their communication skills. The idea that tablets can help reluctant learners or provide a reliable and safe learning interaction for children makes a lot of sense.What doesn't make sense to a lot of families, however, is handing a $400 device over to a young child, even with a super-rugged cover. Also problematic is sharing a device the adults need for work and communication with a kid who is just beginning to grasp the concept of taking turns. Another concern is an Internet connection that lets your kids veg out on the entertainment equivalent of junkfood, see inappropriate content, or "accidentally" rack up bills buying game points or new apps.The LeapFrog LeapPad2 Explorer restores parental control to the equation. To download apps, the LeapPad must be connected to the computer. All the apps and games are created by LeapFrog, a company that is practically synonymous with educational tech toys. And the LeapPad 2 is even more durable than its predecessor so your three year old can hog it without you worrying about getting it back destroyed...or not at all.Here's what you get with the LeapPad 2. I've highlighted the main differences between the original LeapFrog LeapPad and the LeapPad 2:* LeapPad2 Explorer Learning Tablet (4GB Memory, double the original)* 2 Built-in Cameras & Video Recorders (the LeapPad 2 has a front and back camera; the original has only one camera in back)* Extended battery life (about 1 additional hour)* Faster processor (550 MHz, compared to 393 MHz on the original)* LeapFrog Learning Songs App (5 Songs Included)* Pet Pad Writing App* Cartoon Creativity App* Art Studio App* Free App Download* USB CableThere is also a recharger available separately for purchase, a welcome change to the original since these devices are total battery drainers.Just about the only drawback to the LeapPad 2 is the cost of cartridges and apps. To someone of my generation, this is not a deal-breaker. Younger parents, used to cheap and free apps on smart phones, might balk, however, at the recurring cost of purchasing additional games. Plus, the cartridges can be traded or resold.The games available on the LeapPad is what truly distinguishes it from the pack, however. Although there are definitely winners out there, a lot of free and cheap apps for smart phones and adult tablets are hastily thrown together and provide little educational value. With LeapFrog, parents know they are getting appropriate and pedagogically correct content for their kids.Plus, some of the games "auto-level", adjusting the difficulty to challenge each child. A few games even allow parents to customize the device with math sets and spelling lists from school.As with adult tablets, kids can play LeapPad games using the stylus, the touch screen, and the built-in motion sensor.Kids' interests are often character-driven and so my daughter's favorite is the LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra eBook Adventure Builder: Disney Fairies: Tink's Midnight Tea Party: in this game, she can read the story at three different levels, make choices that affect the story, and play games. There are different modes (read the book to me, read the page to me, and read it myself). You can also record yourself reading the book, a great option for parents and grandparents who live far away.The ever popular Pet Pad app comes with the LeapPad and allows kids to practice writing while playing with their virtual pet.My kids are also big fans of the Disney Pixar Brave Cartridge, a first-person adventure game in which the player moves Merida to solve science puzzles. The variety of different science activities (learning about life cycles, experimenting with physics) is very engaging.My personal favorite is the LeapPad Creativity App: Disney Animation Artist: Mickey and Friends. I really enjoy trying to draw Mickey and his buddies with the stylus and think this is a great game for future artists and Disney fans of all ages.The addition of Little Pim language videos is the start of a beautiful relationship and I am hoping the two companies will develop some interactive language learning content.The bottom line is that you will get an excellent learning tool with plenty of high quality content if you are willing to invest in apps and cartridges.As stated above, we received this tablet from LeapFrog for review. All opinions are my own. 08/08/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Great Educational Device! The LeapPad2 is geared towards kids ages 3-9 years old which is perfect for all my girls but especially for Kaila (2.5). She can be a little rough on her toys and I’m always afraid to let her use my iPad since I know it will go flying across the room eventually. We have found the LeapPad to be very durable and can definitely take a beating. It's also very user friendly and my kids were able to figure out how to use it with minimal help from me.Some of our favorite applications have been the Disney storybooks where you can choose among 3 options – have the entire book read to your child, have to book read page-by-page, have your child read the book. There are also games and activities to keep your child engaged. However, what my girls like the best is that you can record your own voice reading the story and play it back whenever you want. This is a great feature for our family since I travel a lot.My kids love the LeapPad2! 07/26/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★by We love it! It is by far the best learning tablet for kids! I love that it is so durable. My son is 2 1/2 and he still drops things easily. I also purchased the gel cover, much recommended if you have a child that drops and/or throws things. The screen is so colorful and also very responsive. We had to get him something touch screen and in color, since we were trying to keep him from playing with my smart phone. We love love love how many Apps and games you can download from leapfrog.com, they range from ages 3 - 9, I think. I love that it has a car charger as well as a recharging system you can get. My only complaints are that it eats batteries and the screen and black bezzle around the screen get scratched from the stylus. I would recommend buying a screen protector. But it eats batteries because it's so responsive and has such a high quality image. I would definitely recommend this product for learning, as well as the perfect device to occupy their short attention spans. 08/29/2013
    Rated 2 out of 5★by Would be a 5 star product if it worked properly. I set this up with with the free apps no problem and then I went on to purchase apps from the app store. I spent $60 on 4 apps and only 1 app(the $5 one of course) downloaded to my leappad2. Also the microphone didn't work for blow drying the monkey on pet pad. So I sent an email, got no response so called the 800 number where they told me they would email me. They had me hook it to my computer to do a repair on it. So then my art studio was gone and apparently they cant figure out a way to fix this. Haven't returned emails that I have sent to customer support. So then yesterday I hook it up to my computer to get the shampoos and treats needed for his pet and after an hour, I still couldn't even get into leappad connect and there is no option for a disconnect! I tried disconnecting it, turning it off and taking out the batteries and still nothing. Now I couldn't even get into anything, all I had was a screen saying to hook it to the computer. Turned it off for awhile and eventually decided to reconnect it to the computer. Left it hooked up for another hour and finally it redownloaded everything and all the videos and pics we took were gone once again. I would love this if it worked better! I have spent more time trying to make this work than my son has played with it. He does love the pet pad and he is only 2 1/2 and I was surprised at how good he does with it. He can even trace some of the letters so I believe he will learn from this if I can get it working properly. 08/18/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Great upgrades from the original LeapPad Containing all the things we loved about the original version the LeapPad 2 has some really fantastic upgrades. We love the addition of the 2nd camera. Kids love to look at themselves. They love to make faces and they love to make videos with them as the star. With the outside camera they can take video's of their subject with the inside camera they are the star.My boys are ages 4 and 6 and the LeapPad 2 offers over 325+ apps and games to download. They can be customized for their age level making the games challenging for their specific age group. I really love that.You'll find the processor is faster making the game play smoother and quick responding. We also love that Leapfrog made an improvement on the battery compartment making it easier to open with a simple push in and slide. Does take 4 double AA's but you can also get a recharger which is great.Most of all my kids love playing with the video and drawing features and along with watching videos and playing games with their favorite characters like Phineas and Ferb, Brave, Cars and so much more. They also love the music from Kids Bop app. My boys love singing and dancing and this is a fabulous addition!!Works with both the LeapFrog Explorer apps and games as well as with the original leapPad games and apps.disclosure: Product provided for review for the purpose of sharing my honest opinion. 07/30/2012
    Rated 1 out of 5★by extra costs this leapfrrog is great for kids,but not for parents wallet. You have to purchase every apt.so they can use it. better off buying an ipad. after all apts to buy you can get pad with more and longer use 10/16/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Love the Leappad2!! We were so lucky to get the Leappad2 early! My six year old LOVED it! These are the reasons he told me he loves it:1. The Camera is awesome, he takes pictures of everything!2. The music that came preloaded on the Leappad. He listens to it all the time and I love that it is all kids music.3. He enjoyed being able to make pictures with the animation.4. The Pet Pad is one of his favorite features, you make a pet and then take care of it.Now why did I love the Leappad2:1. It is educational! He is learning while he is playing and doesn't even realize it because he is having fun!2. The Leappad2 is so easy to navigate, Mom didn't have to be there constantly helping them open games and features! They can do it alone!3. I can track my kids progress online! How awesome! I can see where they are doing well and areas they need work!We love the Leappad2 and I would recommend it to anyone! If you are considering this purchase, you will not be disappointed! 08/15/2012
    Rated 2 out of 5★by There are better options out there PROS: Versatility in power options (AA standard or rechargeable batteries, LeapPad2 rechargeable battery pack, wall adapter); Large profile suitable for smaller hands; Most titles available in both cartridge and downloadable format; Included stylus is physically tethered to the deviceCONS: Cost of apps ($5-25) compared to Android and iOS market content equivalents (free, or $1-5 for ad-free/full versions); Apps offer no potential for updating/evolving content after purchase like Android/iOS counterparts; $5 for a poorly executed mp3-playing app; Batteries/charger not included for cost; OS interface is very primitive; Syncing takes forever; Cost of accessories often just as bloated as the cost of appsHonestly, if my mother-in-law hadn't surprised everyone with a LeapPad2 for my 5-year-old son at Christmas, we probably would have chosen a kid-friendly Android-based tablet for the overall cost and software versatility/compatibility with other devices we already own as a family. 03/09/2013
