    LeapFrog’s LeapPad2 Kid-Friendly Tablet Sees Better Specs At The Same Price: $99

    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. Read More

    Fly Or Die: The Leapfrog LeapPad

    Erick and I are both parents so we know from tablets. The $99 LeapPad from Leapfrog is cool, to be sure, and fun if junior’s aunt or uncle is picking it up, but we both found it lacking, especially when compared to other devices. Obviously if you don’t want the wee ones slobbering all over your iPad, this is a huge winner. Otherwise, the lack of apps, especially for geeks like us… Read More

  • Video Review: Zippity from Leapfrog, Disney Edition

    My own view as a parent is that this is a bit too complex for three year olds but Kasper, our reviewer here, seems to enjoy it. Read More

  • Leapfrog announces new reader "Tag Junior"

    Leapfrog makes some great educational toys, no doubt about it. In fact, my son uses the LeapPad system to read books. Once he was old enough to use it on his own, he spends hours listening and repeating the words to learn them. Now it looks like LeapFrog is going after the younger audience. Read More

  • LeapFrog's Crammer: Flashcards be damned

    This $59.99 gadget holds quizzes for kids. You can study vocabulary, math, science, and just about anything else simply by picking questions from LeapFrog’s online system or typing in questions and answers yourself. And, unlike a set of flash cards, no one will pants you for staring at the Crammer. They’ll just think you’re using a cellphone. Interestingly, you can even… Read More
