LeapPads are an incredible educational toy for kids, so I definitely got a little excited when I heard about Toy Universe's $50 price drop on them. Right now, you can get the LeapFrog LeapPad Ultimate Tablet in Pink or Green for $199 (reg. $249.99). The tablet includes over $100 worth of games!
I have been reluctant to buy my little ones a tablet because the kids versions are always so limited compared to adult smart phones and tablets. The LeapFrog LeapPads are responsive like the adult-versions, but include the parental controls, plus refined (and age appropriate) learning games. The "kid safe" content is determined by qualified educators, so that puts my mind at ease.
The LeapFrog LeapPad Ultimate Tablet includes the following features:
- preloaded content provides lessons to help develop math skills, reading comprehension, and basic science, and games so kids can solve puzzles, play music, and explore their creativity
- top notch resolution and speedy processor
- parental controls and settings to limit screen time
- extra durable with a wrap-around bumper and a shatter-resistant LCD screen
- access only preloaded, kid-safe web content with the LeapSearch browser
- cartridge slot, rechargeable batter, a stylus, a USB charger and wall adaptor
Standard shipping is $9.95.
