Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really like LeapFrog products. I wasn't sure at first, but after owning a LeapPad1, LeapPad2, and recently the LeapReader, I've been impressed with their learning power. Plus, I find the company seems really interested and invested in creating toys kids enjoy and can really learn from. That being said, I don't overload my kids LeapPads with lots of apps and game cartridges. The few my boys have, they play with well enough, and really enjoy (Jewel Train has been the absolute favorite in our house). I like that my kids have technology, but they need other tangible things (like books, manipulative toys, and the outside world) to learn from too.

That being said, the LeapPad2 Power is a great addition to the LeapPad line. Differences I found between the LeapPad2 and LeapPad2 Power were:

-The color scheme is a bit different, more white than green like the original was.

-New apps... Utility Suite that includes a calendar, calculator, notepad, clock, and stopwatch. This was a nice bonus! The Innotab came with a few of these apps on their tablet, and I always thought it was a nice touch. I'm glad LeapFrog decided to add them to their LeapPad as standard apps. Also, there's the LeapFrog Learning Songs app.

-Recharchable battery with 9/hrs of battery life! This is definitely what makes the LeapPad2 Power irresistible. I was getting so tired of replacing batteries all the time. We use rechargeable batteries, but still, given the way electronics work these days, life is simpler when you just need to plug a toy in to charge. Plus 9 hours is heaven!

Similarities between the LeapPad2 and LeapPad2 Power... we'll, that's pretty much everything else. So not much to report here.

Overall this is a great toy for kids. I actually got the LeapPad2 Power for my little guy whose about to turn 3 (his older brother is currently playing with it). However... I think the LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra Learning Tablet, Green is going to kick this LeapPad2 Power out of the water! So you may want to pass on this one and get the LeapPad Ultra instead. Good luck!
