LeapFrog Develops Educational Tablet For Kids

Educational products manufacturer LeapFrog has launched LeapPad, a computer tablet aimed at helping children learn.

LeapFrog Enterprises, an Emeryville,California-based company which designs and develops educational toys has developed an alternative for the latest range of computer tablets put out by tech companies like Apple and Samsung, IB Times (opens in new tab) reports.

LeapPad Explorer, a computer tablet for children four and above has a five inch display, a touch screen with 480 by 272 resolution and comes in two colours, Pink and Green. It also has an integrated camera with a video recorder and 2GB memory.

"LeapFrog created the first interactive learning experience with our original iconic LeapPad Learning System in 1998. After 10 years of research into the most proficient ways for children to learn, we are doing it again with LeapPad Explorer," the senior vice president and chief product officer at the company Craig Hendrickson while announcing the product in February this year.

The tablet, which is now available for pre-order at $99, consists of a library with around 100 apps and games available for download at $5 each. The company aims to help children learn, develop and adjust their skills at their own pace. The tablet will save kid’s progress and take them to higher and more challenging levels over time.
