LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer
LeapPad is a learning tablet just for children. With a built-in camera, video recorder, and a huge library of games and activities, the durable LeapPad features innovative apps that inspire creativity and turn reading into fun and games. It's a new way to learn, a new way to play – a new way to unlock your child's potential.
|The Latest Technology |
The LeapPad Explorer has a 5", high resolution touch screen. Kids can use their fingers to navigate, the included stylus for writing and drawing, and the motion detector lets them shake and twist to interact with learning games.
|Built in Camera and Video Recorder |
Unleash your child's creativity with the LeapPad Explorer's camera and video recorder. Edit pictures and add fun special effects, and connect to a computer to print or share your pictures and videos.
Finally, a tablet designed with kids in mind - so they can stop trying to get their hands on yours. The Leappad Explorer is easy and intuitive to use and rugged enough for kids to use safely.
Your child can customise the LeapPad Explorer to make it their own, from adding their names and choosing a pet to using the in-built camera and microphone to put themselves in the stories they read.
|New ways to learn |
The LeapPad uses its innovative software and technology to help children learn writing, maths, science, music and languages. The device remembers a child's progress and adapts games and books to keep the content challenging.
A powerful tablet compatible with over 100 downloadable games and apps, the entire Leapster Explorer software library, and ready to connect with Leapfrog Learning Path, allowing you to follow your child's learning and help them progress.
|Experience a new way to read |
Characters spring to life with amazing animation, reading levels adjust the challenge to keep children engaged, while touching the text sounds out words to help build phonics, comprehension and vocabulary skills. Voice recording, motion-based play and other innovative features turn reading into a cinematic experience.
|Imagine, create and share |
Animation and Art studios let children create masterpieces. The Photo Studio lets them edit pictures they've taken with the built-in camera. Bring it all together in the Story Studio for an interactive book "All About Me" to share with family and friends.
|Discover a world of apps and software |
Connect the LeapPad Explorer to your PC or Mac to download over 100 apps and extra content, from e-books to learning games. With titles covering skills including maths, reading, science, life skills and more, there's something to suit every child's interests and educational needs.

Truly one of the best purchases I have made for him. His dad is quite into gaming so he obviously wanted to be involved with his own games too. This little gadget is great - when you recieve it you get 4 apps, a pet pad - a la nintendogs, an art studio, a storybook studio (which we haven't really looked at yet) and an app of your choice. We chose the T-rex e-book as he loves dinosaurs.
The pet game is fairly decent - washing (which requires child to blow over microphone to blow dry their pet! - very DS-esqe!), feeding, a frisbee style game (which involves shaking the pad madly!) and a tricks section which requires the player to write letters in order to get the pet to perform. Emphasisng it's use as an educational toy.
The shampoo and treats are used up and require you to connect to your pc to download more - but worry not - it's not a con for more money! Simply by playing on the game they collect tokens which are exchanged for further products, either for your pet or bits for other games you might own. At this point it also uploads data on your childs progress which is useful to see how they are getting on.
The art gallery has been used extensively so far too, the usual gadgets available.
E-book also good highlighting the word that is being read as well as offering additional information when you click on a specific image, e.g. Troodon had large eyes making them good at hunting in the dark. It also offers background sounds and songs that add to the story.
There are a range of apps that can downloaded from leapfrog, ranging from £3.Read more ›
Please please at least bring out a power pack with it so when at home he can sit with it plugged in whilst playing. Better still have a rechargeable power source included like the DS.
The setting up does take time (id do this prior to xmas day for those buying for xmas) as the updates took 15 minutes and I also had the software installed for other leapfrog toys, so this could add more time if its your first leapfrog connect toy.
All leapster explorer apps can be transfered to the leappad and therefore this can also take time too.
Once opening the box you can play straight away, but limited to what, therefore connecting is the best thing to do. Once all updates etc are done your ready to play. You get a choice of the 4th app, which I did find limited as we had all but 1 of the offered apps, therefore we didnt have a "choice". Personally i would have preffered an app card like you get with the leapster.
All leapster explorer games work on the leappad, we already had a few so my son was playing straight away. He finds that when playing the games his thumb slips away from the A button, as its onscreen and not a button. The screen for playing cartridge games is no bigger than that of the leapster as the extra screen is used for the A and B buttons and L and R. Also the "home" key is under the direction pad, causing occasional press resulting in restarting leappad.
We have found that my son goes back to the leapster explorer to play the cartridge games as he preffers the "buttons" and also L and R are in the correct place and easier to use.
If your child has unlocked parts of a game, this is stored on the console and not on the cartridge, therefore switching consoles starts games again etc...
We also have most apps.Read more ›
If you kid presses the power button the whole thing just dies...I know that's fairly obvious, but explain that to a 2/3 year old...
Touch screen is non-existant. You HAVE to use the stylus...which is fine but it's not cool or like a proper tablet. Also even when using the stylus it's so slooooooow. Try drawing a circle and you end up with just lines. Again explaining to a toddler that that have to draw really slowly, it doesn't happen
Battery life is a joke. I use 2470mAh Duracell rechargable's - the same ones that I use in my D-SLR camera. They last approx 30mins. THere's no way of charging the device off the mains. You can pay extra for a power cable, but it still wont charge the pad.
It's a waste of money, £80 + 2 Games + Batteries made it over £120. Can buy an Android based tablet for not much more that will have a load of Apps (even the paid ones are a few quid NOT £25!!)
