It was over a year ago that we last crossed paths with LeapFrog’s LeapPad — a clever kid-friendly learning tablet that comes in under $100. Today, the second-generation LeapPad, or LeapPad2 as it were, has become available for the same price.
However, it has seen some spec bumps that should offer longer play/learning time as well as more games stored.
LeapFrog has doubled the on-board memory, extending it to 4GB, along with adding a bigger battery. But even better, the LeapPad2 has both front- and rear-facing cameras to let kids film movies and cartoons starring themselves. There are hundreds of downloadable apps available on the tablet to help kids learn and play, and LeapFrog also sells game cartridges for use with the slate.
The LeapPad2 comes in green, pink, or in a Disney Princess bundle. You can pick it up now in-store or online for $99, or $129 if your daughter happens to be a Disney Princess.
