Could have been a costly mistake,
This review is from: LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra†(Green) (Toy)
The leap pad ultra looks like an incredible piece of tech and the perfect present for my four year old boy who plays on Daddy's tablet and would do so all day if I let him. The reviews I have read on-line have been very detailed and I have taken a lot of time and effort to read in to whether or not this was going to be a good purchase. Having read the reviews I was all set to rush to the shop and get one, especially as they are coming down in price, and I thought before I do I will have a look at the range and cost of apps. The range of apps is very good, as advertised the leap pad is supported with over 800 apps. The cost of these apps is, quite frankly, outrageous. The cheapest app I saw on the site was £3.50, with average prices being somewhere in the region of £12 per app. Games apps can cost up to £20 (and this is many of them, not just a few) and the ebooks I looked at were all in the region of £15.
Sorry Leapfrog, but I would expect much better than this. I was savvy enough to check the app prices before buying, unfortunately many people probably won't do this and will end up being financially punished or will end up with an expensive toy sitting on a shelf with little to no use.
Leapfrog have created a wonderful introduction to mobile computing and then gone on to put it out of the financial reach of probably it's biggest demographic, likely with the misguided idea that overpriced apps would be a cash cow.

Discovered prices of apps post buying this pad for my little one. Now I am angry at myself - it would be cheaper get normal pad and free of charge games
