Giving your child a LeapPad tablet is better than giving them yours. That is a scary thought. That’s why the folks at LeapFrog have recently unveiled two new tablets aimed at children. The tablets are the LeapPad 3 and the LeapPad Ultra XDI. They are the successors to the LeapPad 2 and the LeapPad Ultra. LeapFrog will also be introducing Web-safe WiFi to keep your kids safe.
The built-in browsers will use the LeapSearch website to perform age-appropriate searches on the internet. So unless they have been approved by LeapFrog, they will not show up on search results. Parents can also access the company’s Leap Connect to download new apps for their child, which I’m sure they will want quite often.
As far as hardware specs, these aren’t what adults are rocking, but both have been built with special impact zones that will help insulate and protect the tablet when dropped. The screens are also shatter-safe so if it does break, pieces of glass won’t be flying around to harm your child. The LeapPad 3 will be $99.99 and will be available on July 16 for pre-order and it will hit store shelves in August. The LeapPad Ultra XDI is $129.99 and is coming this fall.
