I don't usually write reviews but I felt I had to about the LeapPad2 because I am so impressed. I haven't given it to my 4 year old daughter yet, just got it all set up ready for Christmas Day but I know that she will absolutely love it. It looks and feels like a proper tablet but also child appropriate - sturdy. I bought the MP3 player (£3.50 one off cost) and downloaded her favourite songs onto it ready for her. I bought the download centre card for £8 (app value is £15) and with it bought the Cinderalla ultra ebook, which I've had a go at and I really think will get her interested in reading. The quality of sound and images is very good. The photos and videos that it takes aren't fantastic quality but they're good enough for children. I really like the fact that you can take photos of yourself - I can see that getting a lot of use. I found two free apps by searching for codes on google. The free colouring/drawing app which comes with it I know will be a big hit because my daughter loves doing that on her Grandma's iPad. I bought the pad (£65), download card (£8), gel skin (£2) and will buy the recharger pack (£25) when I can find it in stock somewhere plus a bag (£15) big enough to include the charger as well. So it isn't cheap but having myself spent a fair bit of time on it this evening and barely scratched the surface of what it can do, I am seriously impressed and very happy we decided to give her only one Christmas present this year - this.
