    Best learning tablet on the market!!

    Posted .

    We have had our Ultra for a few days now. We also had the LeapPad and the LeapPad 2. We decided we needed to upgrade for the bigger screen and wifi. There is so much we love about the Ultra! The screen is HUGE. The size of an ipad mini screen. The Ultra is built TOUGH. Its heavier than the LeapPad 2, but that is to be expected due to its large size. It comes with a built in battery, no need to purchase batteries or a battery pack on this device. The Ultra comes with a charger for at home, and a USB cable. You can also purchase a car charger for this device. My favorite upgraded features are the 7 inch screen, the kid safe LeapSearch which allows your child to surf content that Leapfrog has deemed safe. There are categories of video's and websites like NickJr.com, PBS kids, Barbie, ThinkQuest, Highlights Kids, Funology, NASA, and many more! I also love that there is an upgraded Pet Pad Party app which allows you to pick from a wide variety of pets, design them, design their home, play tick tack toe and all sorts of fun things! My daughter really enjoys that feature. For those who have 2 children who will have Ultras there are peer to peer features where your children can play against each other (or any other Ultra user in the same room). Games like Cart Racing and Roly Poly World, but you can select the learning level for each child so the questions will be geared for that child while they are playing on their device! Another great feature on the device is a APP CENTER APP, where you can purchase and download apps right from the device. You can only do this is parent mode of course, and you have to enter a code that you choose to purchase an app. I love that you can also purchase apps from the app center at Leapfrog.com, or from Leapfrog Connect on your computer and once the Ultra is turned on it will start downloading your purchases with no need to connect via USB. I really like the fact that the stylus is pushed into the side of the device, and that the volume buttons are at the top, and the power button is on the side. The only buttons on the front are the d-pad and home buttons. I have noticed that with the Ultra you can use the d-pad in games where you normally tilt the device to move objects or characters. I'm not sure if that was a possibility in the previous LeapPad devices? Its great to have the option. I highly recommend this device. Its perfect, safe, fun, big screen, wifi included, tough, will grow with your child, and Leapfrogs educational content can't be beat. We have tried Vtech products, and we own a Kindle Fire and Ipad, but my daughter still chooses her LeapPad to play with. I love that I don't have to worry about anything she is looking at or playing with, and I know that she is LEARNING from content designed by education professionals. I have never found the quality of content anywhere else, that LeapFrog offers. Ipad apps may be cheaper, or free, but the content is just not there. You get what you pay for with Leapfrog, they stand behind their products. I don't mind the cost to ensure that my child is learning as we use our device for educational entertainment. If you are looking at buying your child a learning tablet, this one simply can't be beat. We are thrilled with it. I'd suggest not waiting to long to purchase if you are thinking of this being a Christmas gift. Its sure to be a sell out!! Thank you for another great product Leapfrog!

    We bought this one for our 2 year old & although she needs a little help turning it on (the on button is on the back vs front like the Leap Pad2) she loves that Art Studio & the Sugar Bugs app which we got to choose for our free app once you download the pre-loaded apps. I recommend if you buy for anyone younger than 4, to watch because it is a little more advanced than the other products but still very fun.

    I ordered the Leap Pad Ultra for my grandchildren. After I received the Leap Pads, my son asked that I make sure they worked well before I gave them to the kids, so I plugged them in, loaded the games and played each one as a guest. They worked well. I received offers for games at 30% off after I ordered the Leap Pads, so you might want to wait to buy games until after you get the Leap Pads. I also ordered the silicone covering separately to protect the Leap Pads, and they fit well. In addition I ordered the clear covering to protect the face of the Leap Pad, and installed it. The only minor problem was the air bubbles between the covering and the face of the Leap Pad. I use an Iphone and an Ipad every day, so this was not hard for me. I'm glad I familiarized myself with the games so that I can explain them to the 3 year old and the 5 year old, as this will be their first time out dealing with a Leap Pad. If the kids had been using an Ipad they would find this Leap Pad to move slower than an Ipad, but with nothing to compare it with there should be no problem. This isn't something to hand a child and walk away. Parental guidance and help in setting it up, charging it, and learning how to play the games initially is necessary.

    This is an interesting toy that requires parental guidance in setting it up, charging it, and initially explaining how to play the games to 3 and 5 year old children. I recommend that the parent or grandparent set the Leap Pad up and explore it, before letting the child know it is theirs because it takes a little time, even if you use an Iphone and Ipad every day like I do. Best to wait until after you buy the Leap Pad to buy the games because if you order it online you may receive email offers for 25-30% off subsequent orders of games. The Leap Pad Ultra is slower than an Ipad. I bought a silicone covering separately to hopefully protect the toy in case it gets dropped. I also ordered a case separately to protect the toy when it is stored. My son asked that I check the toy and make sure it worked before I gave it to my grandchildren, which I did. I played the games as a guest, and set the Leap Pad up with the child's name on the front of it.

    It is an awesome tablet for children to use.

    I really liked that this leapad has a rechargeable battery and it also has wi-fi. Every week I get an update on how my child has progressed from playing the games. It does this automatically because of the wi-fi, I no longer have to connect it to the computer. The rechargeable battery is also great because I no longer have to spend all this extra money on batteries. That is basically the difference between the ultra leapad and leapad 1 &2.

    My nephew loves it

    Posted .

    I bought the LeapPad Ultra from BestBuy the very first day it came out, for my nephew's fifth birthday. When I opened it I was surprised how heavy the tablet was and actually I was a little worried that it would be too weighty for the little guy. And as other reviewers have noted, it did take a little while to setup although not nearly as long as other people have found, maybe 15 minutes over so-so wifi in my case. Lastly, the app store...well, it's not an iPad, that's for sure. But enough with the concerns. Unsurprisingly my nephew took to the tablet immediately, as I knew he would since he loves anything electronic. But three months later my sister reports that he still uses it constantly--this morning she sent me a picture of him writing on it while eating breakfast. She also says she finds the games extremely relevant to what he's currently learning is school. In particular the art program apparently is very good. I don't live in the same city so I don't see my nephew regularly and thus I can't comment on the specifics of the tablet, but I think the evidence speaks for itself: it's been a big success.

    I bought this as a gift for my six year old cousin who was diagnosed with autism and learns very well through technology. This tablet beat out all the other kid friendly tablets because the main focus is learning but his favorite characters such as the Transformers can also be present without distracting from learning and it also seemed more kid durable. His parents have said that he hasn't put it down since he got it. I like that the cartridges can grow with him and that it's very interactive. I do wish there was more of a variety of games and that they didn't cost so much. However, there are still many things to do without the cartridges, he tells me often that he's drawing something. He loves it so I'm happy.

    EASY TO USE KID FRIENDLY

    Got this for my sons 7 birthdat at the begging of November. The product was easy to set up and he had no problem working his way through the different games and programs. I would recommend this for anyone with kids, our 9 year old daughter also uses it and wants one for her self. I wish that you could get NETFLIX on it or play DVD's but other then that it is a great tool for learning that is fun and the kids want to use.

    Overall the leapPad ultra is great. My son learned the whole alphabet and now is working on learning numbers. He's only 3 1/2 years old. He is beginning to write his name and already can count from 1-10 on his own. This device has many apps from where kids can find it easy to learn new tasks like brushing their teeth and keeping them clean.also how to be organized.They get to play while they are doing all of that. The leappad ultra is great!!!

    Kids fight over it all the time!

    Posted .

    Has big screen so my kids don't have a problem with selecting what they want with ease. My kids fight over it all the time 3 children ages 2-7. Downloaded apps range in price $10-30. The games my kids are interested in that is. Debated between this and an affordable real tablet. Down fall would be with the real tablet you could download common free apps such as angry birds, fruit ninja, etc. Although, we as parents like educational games for our children so it is probably a wash. Another down fall would be that sometimes my children become impatient with slow loading times or slow reaction time. They end up pushing something 5 or 6 times before the tablet catches up. For example they will tap to scroll the screen and it won't move right away so they keep tapping and then all of the sudden the screen is too far moved for what they were trying to select. We bought this at best buy for $150 and then it came with $30 Best Buy card so it was worth a try! Overall works well for our family and are satisfied; just wish it was alittle more like a real tablet with the app marketplace.

    I bought this for my 6 year old granddaughter that I raise and she hardly ever wants to put it down. I never had to read how to operate it once I had it set up. My granddaughter picked it up and was able to operate it without any help. I love that it is so educational on many levels and that I get updates as to how much time she is spending on her apps, how many questions she answered and the percentage of them she answered correctly. It also works great for my grandson who is 10 and has learning disabilities. It is one tool that keeps their focus without me having to be right on top of them.

    Good product

    Posted .

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my 5 year old nephew and he started playing with it right away. Pros are that the interface is easy to navigate and he started figuring out how to play the apps right away; also it presents a locked down environment so even very determined kids wouldn't be able to use it to go unmediated to the Wild West that is today's internet. There are a couple of cons; the tablet can sometimes be a little slow to respond especially when updating, plus the Leapfrog Connect app (if you sync the tablet from your laptop) can often choose to download a LOTTA info so you probably want to do that at night when the little ones are sleeping. But that sync also lets you track via Connect what they are learning. Overall I am satisfied with this product.

    My youngest daughter's original LeapPad2 got damaged and was replaced under the Best Buy warranty. They didn't have the same one in stock so I applied the value to this one. It is a great improvement over the LP2. The biggest improvement is the internal battery, no more AAs! All the kids love it, her older brother asked if he would get one if he broke his LeapPad, we said NO! Great educational software available.

    I think this is a fantastic tool for for teaching the most basic to advanced curriculum's. This makes learning fun with the challenges and gaming atmosphere. It helped our grandchildren relate to phonics very quickly and has turned math and reading into competition.
