What We Like Best About LeapPad Ultra

Amongst the extensive upgrades since LeapPad2, the LeapPad Ultra has a ‘peer-to-peer’ play app – this means that your child can play interactively with other tablet owners, encouraging a shared learning experience.

Not only are there 11 free apps, but LeapFrog’s gigantic library of educational games, songs, videos and photos are educator-approved and available for only a few dollars each.

Another great feature is the Learning Path; simply plug the tablet into a computer to follow your child’s progress. It doesn’t all need to be screen-based learning, either – printable sheet activities are also available.

What Other Customers Are Saying About LeapPad Ultra

LeapPad Ultra PinkThe child-safe web access, parental setting options and Learning Path are highlights for one customer; not only can she track what apps and games her child has been using, but she doesn’t need to worry about what her child is looking at.

One customer loves the fact that both her children can use the same tablet; not only is it possible to have different user profiles, but profiles are adapted to suit age and level. This means that the tablet can grow with your child.

In terms of its new and improved design, the tablet has received some mixed reports. While the stylus is now left-hander friendly and the tablet size means it is still the perfect travel toy, some customers have discovered that LeapFrog’s tablet is just about the only frog in town which is not waterproof.

The Verdict

The LeapPad Ultra learning tablet has just about everything you could ask for: apps, games, videos, web access, music, a camera and a huge on-board memory. Web access is 100% kid-friendly and the tablet itself is 100% kid-proof. Engaging educational activities will allow your child to be involved in their own learning and the new ‘peer-to-peer’ play feature additionally allows children to share the learning experience with one another.

The general consensus seems to be that LeapFrog’s new tablet has catered for all the concerns raised about the previous tablet: not only do you get more for your money’s worth in terms of apps, but the design is more child-friendly, you can closely monitor your child’s learning progress and, most importantly, the kids love it.
