LeapFrog is famous for making educational toys and books for kids. They want to squeeze more profits from parents by introducing a Tablet PC specifically created for kids. The new LeapFrog LeapPad Tablet PC is rugged to withstand the abuse from hyperactive kids.
LeapFrog LeapPad Kid’s Tablet PC is a must have for parents who don’t want to risk their children breaking their expensive tablet computers such as the Motorola Xoom Tablet PC Wi-Fi 32GB (worth US$600).
Kids nowadays will demand their own Tablet PC when they see their parents and older siblings have them. LeapFrog is perfect for kids 3 years and above. It’s an educational tool that will occupy the children’s attention for hours.
LeapFrog LeapPad Tablet PC runs on a custom OS and has a 5-inch color touchscreen display. The screen resolution is a bit low, only 480x272p, but kids don’t really need HD displays anyway.
It comes with 2GB of memory and has a camera, microphone, video recorder, stylus and, amazingly, it comes with a motion sensor. The motion sensor inside the LeapPad is necessary for certain games and learning apps!
LeapFrog says the LeapPad will run all LeapFrog Leapster Explorer educational game cartridges and apps. They are also already preparing hundreds of LeapPad-exclusive educational books, apps and videos. It is their mission to educate kids with the help of the LeapPad which is also the objective of The Humane PC.
Toddlers will learn the basic of language, phonics, math and spelling with the help of the LeapPad. This tablet for kids offers a fun but challenging experience. A learning book comes with 3 training levels and will auto-adjust according to a child’s ability. If the software detects that your kid is breezing through Level 1 difficulty, the LeapPad will automatically shift to a harder mode.
This tablet comes with a stylus which is really fun to use if your kids love drawing. The LeapPad comes with various apps but the stylus is best use with the art, photo and animation softwares. You children can learn how to draw and animate with the LeapPad guiding them. The LeapPad has social network connectivity. Parents can share their children’s artwork via email or Facebook.
