This review is from: LeapFrog LeapPad1 Explorer Learning Tablet, pink (Toy)
We purchased this LeapPad for my daughter's fourth Birthday.
Pro's: Over 100 plus games are available for purchase.
It comes with 4 games included.
It has a built in Camera/Video Recorder.
It is educational, and still super fun.
It takes rechargeable batteries.
You can purchase an AC Adapter and skip batteries altogether if you choose.
The App center allows you to download Movie Apps, some are as long as 36 minutes! Its like having a DVD player included.
You can track your childs learning online.
You child earns tokens that they can spend on treats and game additions.
It comes with 2 Stylus.
The graphics are awesome.
Some of the cartridge games that you can purchase in the store are available to download to the LeapPad, so you don't have to worry about losing the cartridge.
Apps range from $5 to $20 . The cartridge games that you can download are $25.
You can purchase app download cards as gifts, kind of like giving an itunes card.
You can pay for apps using your credit card or app download cards in the App Center.
Con: No recharging station, but to be honest, purchasing the rechargeable batteries and AC adapter are cheaper than a recharging station anyway.
My daughter really loves this LeapPad. The games are very detailed and very fun. I love that I can track her progress, and see what she is learning and what she needs help with. She has spent lots of time playing the games, taking pictures and video's and creating books. She loves to edit her photo's. It is very similiar to how she plays with my Ipad2, she can take pictures, watch movies and play games. Best of all, I get to play with my Ipad2 alot more often. You won't be dissapointed. It has been worth every penny!
