I purchased the original leappad for my children and was really impressed with the unit. My boys love it so when the leappad ultra was announced I preordered two of these believing they would be vastly improved from the Original leappad & leappad 2. Sadly I was wrong - an expensive mistake! The unit sounds impressive and is certainly robust enough for children. However the unit, which is claimed to be faster, appears as fast as the original leappad. As another reviewer has said it appears the operating system can't keep up and I suspect they're right. One of the advances from the first two leappads is the kids safe wi-fi functionality. The way the contents is filtered and presented is good, in fact for young kids I'd say it's fantastic. However it is limited to pictures and video and this is where the unit really falls flat on its face. The video is presented in a small box, not full screen, and is of low quality. Further more the system struggles with most of the videos meaning the unit continuously crashes and goes back to the main screen. I've updated the firmware and have fibre optic broadband (as well as a host of other devices perfectly functional with video). As the wifi & screen size are the two biggest distinguishing features, setting it apart from the older versions, I'm somewhat surprised leapfrog hasn't ensured the user experience is more reliable. If you're buying for the games then this unit is great but possibly better to save some money and just get the previous leappad. If you're thinking of upgrading, or want it for the wi-fi content, Id wait and see if leappad do anything about improving the user experience and ensuring the system does not crash on videos they've approved! All in all I've spent a lot of money on two systems that the kids are just going to be frustrated with because of it keep crashing. Poor show leapfrog - a mere two stars I'm afraid!

This was bought from Amazon, but not by me.

The bad:
Considering that this is the top model I was surprised by how slow it is, compared to similarly priced tablets. It takes a long time to start or load and the screen is not very sensitive to touch; I would say as sensitive as a touchscreen from 8 years ago (i.e. photocopier).

The included games are minimal/basic and do not take any advantage of the claimed capabilities of the pad.

The cameras are really bad; we are talking 7 year old mobile phone camera quality.

The WORST is the durability. Considering the age range it is aimed at it should not have been damaged by repeated drops form a height of under 30cm (children running with it and dropping it). However the speaker was damaged and now you get a very annoying squeaking sound if you raise the volume (It was used on full volume on several occasions before but it is no that loud; not loud enough to damage any half decent speaker).

Every time you switch it on you need to connect to the Wi-Fi as the connection gets lost when you turn it off.

There do not seem to be any games available made especially for this model.

The battery life is not good.

Not many options (Customisation) available in the parent mode

The good:

Some nice, safe, videos are available with internet connection.

It's a tablet and children will like that.

It has a "parent" mode to adjust some settings.

It looks nice.

It is robust and keeps the children mentally stimulated and occupied for hours. Especially good on car journeys. Highly recommended.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Having had previous Leap-pads, I can honestly say this is the best yet. It is fabulous! Much bigger in screen size, with a 2 way camera, and much bigger memory. I know it's no iPad, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's a fantastic learning and entertainment tablet, which is intuitive and simple to use. It can be a tiny bit slow, but patience is a virtue so they say!

My son is 7, and he's loving it. We've already got a Leappad account so once we registered it, it was simple to down load all our previous purchases. So much fun! Pictures, videos, effects - all easy to do and to upload to the pc for saving and sharing.

The battery pack is now rechargeable, so no longer do we spend a fortune on AA batteries. The charge lasts well, and we only seem to plug it in every week or so, with daily use.

The range of apps are good, but I'd recommend buying a Leappad download card LeapFrog Explorer App Centre Download Card (for LeapPad and Leapster) to use as you will save money rather than buying direct about a third off).

We love this :)
