The holiday shopping season is upon us now especially with the passing of American Thanksgiving and Black Friday. In today’s fast paced society, tech toys are always a winner no matter what age your gift recipient is. The new LeapPad2 has made many top toy lists this year and won an astounding 20 awards worldwide. Some of these include “Preschool Toy of the Year-Parenting Magazine” and “Gold Winner- National Parenting Publication Awards”. So just why is this kid’s tablet so hot?
Unlike its predecessor, the new LeapPad2 includes a faster processor, front and back cameras, video functions and 4GB of memory. It does comes preloaded with four apps already which include Pet Pad, Leapfrog Learning Songs, Cartoon Creativity and Art Studio. Any other apps you want will have to be purchased from the LeapPad library which has a selection of over 325 cartridges and apps with educational content. The LeapPad2 is targeted towards kids aged 3-9. The design is also quite attractive and not overly childish which may appeal to younger kids who aren’t allowed to work a real iPad yet. There is even a Disney Princess version which comes with stickers, a Disney Princess case and Disney Princess wallpapers. With all the hype it seems like this new kid’s tablet is the next big thing if you’re 9 and under! *hint hint parents*
