LeapFrog LeapPad *Giveaway closed*

Sarah playing Pixar Pals

I still remember the very first LeapFrog item we ever received. Samantha received the Baby Piano for her first birthday and was her absolute favorite toy for years. Even Sarah loved it.

Over the years we have fallen in love with the educational learning toys from LeapFrog. We were all excited to learn about the LeapPad.

The first thing I noticed was that the LeapPad came with two stylus and one has an attachable cord. This I was excited about because I knew it would not easily be lost.

We then set Sarah up with her own account. It’s great because with the built in camera we took her picture to personalize her account. The screen is 5 inches and has a 480×272 pixel resolution. I was impressed with the size of the screen and it fits perfectly in little ones hands. The LeapPad has a built in 2GB memory and also has a built in camera, video recorder and microphone making it very versatile!

We love that the LeapPad also uses the LeapFrog Explorer cartridges and apps., and in a way the LeapPad is similar to the explorer. Kids can read stories, play games, color, draw and so much more.Β  Like the Explorer I love the option of uploading apps (games) right onto the system, when traveling you don’t have to worry about lost cartridges.

The LeapPad does come with installed games (and of course you can add many more to it). It has four apps installed. Pet Pad, Story Studio, Art Studio, and one app of your choice.

The LeapPad is for ages 4 to 9, but I can see 3 year olds loving the coloring and drawing. You can purchase the leapPad in green or pink at many local retailers.

ONE winner will receive a LeapFrog LeapPad and TWO LeapFrog Explorer Cartridges.

  1. I would love a leapster explorer and an ipad for my kids. I think that’s what Santa’s getting them!

  2. I would love to give my 5y/o son a leap pad. Both my boys love the tag pens I bought them. Two of the pens don’t work anymore, hopefully will be replacing them if I can find them cheaper than they were. Money is tight, but they love playing the games and reading the books.

  3. the Leapster Explorer is a great item for kids, have had a chance to see my nephew use one, looks great, and love that its educational

  4. I shared this on Facebook. Please enter me in the contest. Thank you! πŸ™‚

  11. So excited about the Leap Pad! (Secretly tired of having my phone stolen by my 3 year old) In doing research, I was excited to find that LeapPad can send educational updates to my email, tracking my child’s progress as they play. Sooo cool! What will they come up with next?

  12. My 2 year old son loves his Leapfrog Tag Junior. He uses it all the time and likes to “read” all by himself. We are always acquiring new books for it and cycling through our stock. Anything Tag is a winner in this house. He’s even trying to teach his Leapfrog Scout how to read. While a Leapfrog LeapPad is at the top of our “must have” list next, we also keep an eye out for our move up to the Leapfrog Tag that will be coming up soon!
