    Fun to Play With

    I play with it with my 4 year old often. It's great. I don't have to worry about her watching something inappropriate on youtube. I have control over the device. It's easy for her to operate. It's pretty :) Wish we had the purple one because girly colors are my favorite she just wasn't patient :D and that's ok. But way better than any other tablet for sure. I have experienced a few glitches on it that I've been able to fix through google. If you experience these issues, hold down the down toggle and home button at the same time and should fix, maybe the on/off button too, cant remember. Battery life is long. We take it on car rides. Cool to take to places where you have to wait like the dmv. Keeps them busy. I bought the Best Buy warranty too which is a good thing to have.

    We purchased this tablet for our two year old because he wanted to be like his brother who is always playing on his android tablet. Obviously we weren't going to buy a two year old a "real" tablet so we bought this. It's nearly indestructible and has taken multiple drops with no problem. And it's a huge improvement over the older leap pads. It has wifi and an internal rechargeable battery. The only downside is you have to purchase anything you put on it, apps, videos, etc. So by the time all is said and done you could be sitting on a 500 dollar children's tablet that he will eventually grow out of. Otherwise we're very happy with it.

    Beware! Leap Frog does not stand behind product.

    I purchased this leap pad for my four year old for Christmas. Not a couple of hours into playing with it the tip of the stylus pen broke off exposing a piece of metal underneath causing the Leap Pad to get scratches all over the screen. I contacted Leap Frog customer service and they offered to send me a new stylus free but would not cover the damage to the screen. The damage to the screen was caused by a defective stylus pen but they would not take responsibility for this. The customer service rep I talked to was extremely rude and told me that "that's just the way it is." I will never buy another Leap Frog product again and you shouldn't either!

    My 2 year old and 4 year old both received a LeapPad for Christmas. They fought over the last one constantly so everyone got their own this time. They had an older version before and I decided to upgrade hoping that this version has a more durable screen. The older model screen cracked twice. I was able to find discount codes for the online/download games at half price on Christmas morning. My girls both love watching videos on YouTube constantly since their last Leappad broke and I realized how much I appreciate the game. Instead of mindless video watching they're actually learning shapes, number sequence, letters, etc.

    This new leapfrog platinum tablets was some thing my god daughter and her brother wanted for Christmas and I just had to get it. The tablet is well made and durable for kids. Very user friendly and it provided hours of engaging fun for both. I don't we heard a peep out of them once open. The set up is pretty easy and there is definitely room to grow as the kids get older. The games are fun but also teaching and educating at the same time which is a plus. Highly recommended.

    I bought this toy for my granddaughter, age 3, and had a wonderful time exploring it with her. i know it will give her many years of fun and learning. We liked that we could buy new apps every year appropriate to her age that would stimulate and teach her new concepts. The original thought was also to keep her off her mothers computer before some serious damage was done to it, so we call it her computer.

    I bought this tablet for my 2 year old on his birthday. I also bought 4 apps which were not cheap. At first it was a great item, my son loved his tablet and his Team umizumi games. However 3 weeks after purchasing this tablet the apps stopped working and the tablet would show a blank screen, could still hear the sound but no image. My son cried and cried because he wanted to play with his tablet. Unfortunately due to the expensive price of the tablet and apps. I can't replace it.

    I was so excited to get my grandson off of the iPad and on a learning device. Little did I know this device was not as user friendly for my grandson as the iPad. It didn't swipe as easily or move from application to application smoothly. Additionally, you have to buy the learning games separately for this device and they cost $10-$30 each. We returned the leap pad and made the iPad preschool friendly with free games and apps.

    Great Tablet to keep my kids entertained and occupied. The games you purchase and the ones that comes with the tablet is great, I only wish they allowed online surfing, like youtube for kids and the ability to add non leap frog apps, like abc mouse. with these improvements they can take over the kid tablet market. These things are durable the stylus broke but my kids perfer using their fingers anyway.

    Got this for my 3 year old birthday. She seems like she really enjoys it. Was a little confusing for me. But she seems like she figuring it out. Which makes me look bad lol. purchased so she can learn her colors, letters and numbers. Seems to be working. I can't give it a 5 due to the fact the stylus pen fell apart in first few days. And I have only had it for less then 30 days. Will see what happens. In 6 months

    My Toddler really likes this learning pad. He loves the games, taking photos, and drawing. It's a great device to hand him in the car or in church and know that he'll be entertained for a while. We commonly use our iPad for our toddler as well, but there is definitely a need for both as ipad are better for tv shows and movies (and free games). However , the ipad isnt as durable so the leappad is our first choice.

    We bought this product on clearance. It did not fully function due to a stupid parental lock code on it. After asking Best Buy and Leapfrog staff for help, a greedy Best Buy boss tried to charge us to fix the problem, everyone offered advice, only 1 Best Buy member apologized and gave us a refund for the returned product. Afterwards, we've never tried anymore Leapfrog items again, on clearance or not.

    My three year old loves having his own tablet, and it has physically held up to a few tantrums already! However, you really need to purchase additional games for it to be fun. The tablet comes with several demo games, but they are very short. So when planning on spending the money on this tablet, also budget in leap pad games as well.

    I have four daughters 8, 7, 2 (and a bun in the oven). This product is a welcomed "free-time" activity to reinforce educational concept we are teaching in homeschool. Each girl is easily able to adapt the activity (which can be downloaded via WIFI!) to their learning level. It is challenging enough, and it offers the current popular characters which makes learning seem more fun.

    Easy set up and download. We thought this came with more learning games but only had a couple. You must purchase games or videos etc. which are fairly expensive. It is great for 5 year old who enjoys any electronic gadget but we have a little more control over what he is seeing & learning with this device. I would suggest buying protective cover & case.

    I got this for my 2.5 year old and even though it's a little advanced for him right now, he loves it! Always asking to play paw patrol and other games! The camera isn't very good quality, but I cannot even complain about that. I love that it entertains while teaching my son and will do an even better job I'm sure when he's a little older!

    4yr old attention getter

    LeapPad was great for my 4yr old. Very durable and engaging. However the only complaint that I would give is that there aren't more games included. The games that are included also require all of interaction which is a positive most of the time, however sometimes if your child wants to just play something quick it can be less attractive.

    While this tablet is cute, durable, and has great educational games... the camera is horrible. I understand it not being a great camera but it's not even good enough for it to clearly see the cards it comes with. Kind of disappointing since it advertises this fun photo booth on the box. My daughter still loves it though.

    We have had three of these items now. The are great for younger kids. We have only had three due to loosing one and the other one just was worn out with them playing with it so much we had to up grade. It is very educational and you can down load many programs to this product. Does not need wifi to be used!
