It Is Easy For Little Fingers

Leap Pad Explorer

The LeapPad Explorer from LeapFrog is created in such a way that the design makes it easy for their little fingers to hold onto and it's thin enough so that it won't weigh them down.

Because kids will be kids, the product was also created to withstand the stress kids put the product through as they live life at supersonic speed. This learning tool knows how kids like to play and learn and combined that knowledge to make a product that can be flipped and turned about by little ones. Because it has a sensor for tilt and an easy to see 5-inch screen, it's easy for kids to engage in learning.

One of the fantastic features about this product is the built in camera. Putting a product with a camera like this into the hands of a child opens up a world bursting with imagination for them.

They can take photos, make videos and make creations they'll want to show off to their family and friends. It's easy to do, thanks to the vocal instructions that guide them in editing their creative projects.

One of the many applications that taps into a child's imagination and creative ability is the Story Studio and Art Studio application. These are applications you can get at no extra cost, and it lets your child put their creations into storybooks.

You'll also discover that LeapPad Explorer from LeapFrog is unparalleled in helping kids master reading. These interactive learning experiences are designed so that the reading level adjusts as your child's reading grows.

This aids a child in building comprehension in reading and growing an extensive vocabulary, too. He can tap the word and an image showing what the word is will show up.

If he goes on to touch the image, it will show the word and the LeapPad will also sound the word out for him. Keeping your child engaged in learning at a young age is a wonderful foundation to help him educated to the fullest.

      Just about every LeapPad product I have seen has been a quality item. My children learned quite a bit when they were younger from many of their toys.

      @klaird: Ann, thanks for dropping by. I agree, if you can wait, or if your kids can wait, you usually get a better deal.

      I thought about getting this for my son, who already has the Leapfrog Explorer, since the games are compatible with one another. But I waited too long and now everybody's sold out of them, and the retailers that do have them are charging almost double the price. So maybe I'll wait until his birthday in March. By then I'm sure the price will be down to $99 again...or even lower.

      I love the color choices, and the size... perfect for little fingers, still learning how to use digital toys and tools!
