I am a member of the LeapFrog Mom Squad, I was given product in order to give an honest review. All opinions are my own.
We love LeapFrog products. They are educational and always so great for my little ones. We got the original LeapPad when it first came out and since that time, it has improved by leap and bounds. The latest in the family of LeapPads is the LeapPad Platinum. It’s faster than previous models and we got some of the new Imagicard’s to try out with it as well.
Scroll to the bottom to see a video of how the LeapPad Platinum and the Imagicard’s work.
The LeapPad Platinum has 8GB of memory that can hold up to 40,000 photos or 100+ game apps. It has two cameras, a rear facing and a forward facing. Both of them can record video as well. The screen is 7 ” and offers a finger touch stylus.
Our favorite features include:
Kid Safe Web – Having kids online can be scary to think about but the kid safe web has pre-screened videos, websites, and things for the kids to do.
Built Kid Tough – can handle drops.
Safe Social Play – You kids can play together in games like Pet Chat Party when they both have a LeapPad close to each other.
Adapts and Learns – When you set up your child’s profile, you input their grade level. This is important because each game will cater to the level of the child. As they learn and get better, the games level up and get more difficult!
Imagicard games are the latest in cool LeapFrog technology. Each card has a border that is unique that the LeapPad can read. It allows you to answer questions and put characters into the game. They are a lot of fun. Make sure you are in the proper child profile so the games play at the level of the student. When my 2nd grader plays, it shows rhyming words. When my toddler plays, it shows pictures and single letters. It’s really great how both of them can play the same games but at different levels.
Check out the video below to see how they work. My girls really love their LeapPad’s and they have been learning how to use the Imagicard’s together. It keeps them occupied for hours and it’s the screen time I don’t mind them getting on rainy days, because they are learning at the same time.
