The #1 kid’s learning tablet just got better. The original LeapPad was introduced in 2011 and over the last year has won prestigious awards from the Toy Industry Association including “Toy of the Year”. As the industry leader in educational toys, LeapFrog naturally saw a great opportunity to bring educational content, personal creativity and smart gaming fun into the hands of 4 to 9 year olds. With the introduction of LeapPad 2, Leapfrog continues to impress.

The new kid-friendly tablet features higher resolution, front & back cameras, a video recorder and twice the memory (4GB). The LeapPad 2 also features a music player, a new cartoon activity app and your choice of an additional app for free. Another plus is that the cartridges from Leapfrog Explorer are compatible with the new LeapPad 2. The kid friendly tablet computer now also features a more durable frame, rubberized grips and improved battery life. LeapPad 2 will retail for around $100 and comes with enough built-in content to get kids started.

Pre-Order begins July 18, 2012, don’t miss out on what I’m sure will be the hottest gift this holiday season.
