Leapfrog Leappad: 5-inch Color Tablet For Kids
Those with kids are probably all too familiar with handling a greasy, food-covered phone — courtesy of their hungry, messy, and multi-tasking children. Now you no longer have to let junior play with your iPhone, iPad, or whatever phone or tablet you have, so he will stop screaming. Welcome the Leapfrog Leappad Explorer. The maker of the very popular line of children’s toys, books, and games will unveil a larger version of its Leapster Explorer this summer.
The 5-inch touch-screen color tablet has a rugged build for those little slippery fingers, and comes with a built-in camera, microphone, video recorder, and even an animation studio for budding artists and movie makers. There are plans for more than 100 learning games, videos, and books, which are compatible with the entire Leapster Explorer library. With an MSRP just under $100, downloadable apps are expected to be priced at around $7.50, and standalone game cartridges will cost about $25. This should satisfy your little one — at least until he wants to see all of this happen on your big screen TV.
