Designed for little hands and big imaginations, the LeapPad Explorer tablet is designed to educate children in maths, science, geography and world languages, all the while letting them have fun.
With his or her own learning tablet, a child can have fun with phonics, maths and science and then take learning beyond the basics to geography, world languages, music and life skills such as brushing their teeth! As part of the learning adventure, a child can also practice writing skills with step-by-step instructions and a child-sized stylus.
Edutainment takes centre stage and, thanks to the accelerometer and 5‚ brilliant colour touch screen, little ones can enjoy a truly interactive learning experience. Disney favourites like Toy Story 3 and Cars put them in the middle of the action with HD-like graphics.
LeapPad Explorer helps children with their vocabulary and improves reading skills. LeapFrog’s largest library ever (100+ learning games, videos, e-Books, flash cards and more) and e-book functionality enables children to customise an endless variety of learning experiences. Characters and backgrounds come to life and the interactive dictionary reinforces the definition of a word through animation and audio effects.
Youngsters can also create their own stories by adding photos, drawings, audio, wallpaper and names. The LeapPad Explorer comes with a camera, video recorder’ microphone and animation studio for even more creative exploration ‚ and your children can share their pieces with friends and family through Facebook and e-mail.
The LeapPad Explorer automatically adjusts learning across all 100+ experiences so children can learn at their own pace. As with all LeapFrog connected products, LeapPad Explorer allows you to track your child’s progress and achievements with the LeapFrog Learning Path. You will receive regular e-mailed updates that provide insight into where your little one may need additional support.
The LeapPad Explorer is child-friendly in every way and can withstand rough play. It has a 2GB memory, 480 x 272 resolution and is designed to work in portrait or landscape orientation. Additional features include volume control, a headphone socket and home button for easy navigation.
To expand the fun across platforms, the exciting library of Leapster Explorer game cartridges and apps are cross compatible with the LeapPad.
