Kiddy Tablet Brought To You By Leapfrog

Tablet mania will be taking over a play school near you in no time.  Not surprising, considering the number of parents who admit that their children use their iPads, Blackberries, etc. more than them. The problem with this is that these devices are made for adults, so you run the risk of the children being exposed to “adult” things or simply breaking it, without realizing it.  Well now, they’ll have their own tablets, thanks to Leapfrog, the educational toy giant:

The tablet, unveiled Tuesday, will be available for preorder June 29, and costs $99.99.

The LeapPad has a 5-inch touchscreen housed in a case that feels like it will take a beating. The 480-by-272 display is bright and high quality for a kid’s toy, but noticeably lower resolution than adult smartphones and tablets. It’s also a resistive screen, so you have to exert a little pressure when swiping or using the included stylus. There’s a built-in VGA camera (640-by-480 pixels) for taking photos and videos, an accelerometer for tilt control in games and a cartridge slot for playing LeapFrog’s Leapster Explorer titles.

When you turn on the LeapPad, you’re prompted to customize it with your name, picture, wallpaper and virtual pet. The Pet Pad, which lets you create and care for your pet, is one of four apps that come preloaded on the device. There’s also Story Studio for producing custom e-books, Art Studio for creating art projects with the expected assortment of stamp tools, colored pencils and special effects, and My Stuff gallery for storing photos, videos, e-books and other creative projects.

Shoot I think I may get a few to stash for the holiday season. learn more HERE.
