We have all just spent a bunch of money this season, but generous as we are, we feel like getting the kids a little present now and then. It is important to keep your child’s mind active so why not buy them something that they can play on and learn from at the same time?
Any of LeapFrog’s LeapPad models can be yours for £70-90 (accessories and such included or not) and it seems to be worth every penny. As soon as you turn it on, you can create a login account for your kid. This is great if you have more than one kid running about your house. This means that each one of your kids can have a different account and save their progress on each of the different games accordingly. You can personalize it to quite some extent, each account can have its own photo and back ground, parents can also set what age level its meant for so that each kid can get the most benefit out of it possible.
But what apps does it come with? It comes pre-installed with a cars game and a bug game, however it has a library of hundreds of other games that you can later buy online if you want to expand on your kids experience. It also allows your kid to develop its creative side as the tablet comes with an inbuilt camera that they can spend hours on taking all sorts of photographs as well as an art studio which they can edit the photos in as well as come up with their own graphics. It also comes along with e-book readers, video players and MP3 players which kids would truly love.
One of the features that come with the Leap Pad is the pet pad, and it is almost always becoming a favorite. This allows one to play about with a digital animal and helps your little one learn stuff the first time. The first game helps your child recognize letters and in doing so the pet on the screen will learn new tricks!
The Leap pad also comes with a stylus to help you use the touch screen and can work in any direction you hold it up, as its motion sensors determine how it is held.
All in all this product has got a great deal of good reviews and it is great value for money, no wonder it is named by Time as one of the 15 Smartest Toys for Young Geniuses.
