#LeapPad3 by #LeapFrog {Review}

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on August 18, 2014

We are a very digital family. All of my older kiddos have their own smart phones; my younger kids play on our iPads, Kindle Fire, and often my phone or Ray’s phone. But, before they even started using these more advanced devices, my little ones all had LeapFrog tablets.

LeapPad3 by LeapFrog

Our newest LeapFrog device is the LeapPad3. It came pre-loaded with 10 apps – including 10 learning songs with the Music Player, a calculator, notepad, clock, calendar and voice memo, all designed for kid-friendly exploration. In addition, we can access a library of 1,000+ games, apps, ebooks and videos. Plenty for every age and subject. There will never be a shortage of fun activities for Timmy. With it’s rough and tumble-proof design, it can withstand the jolts and drops sure to take place when in little hands. It’s perfect for my littlest guy.

Set-up was easy, right out of the box. There were just a few steps to complete to connect the wifi, set up Timmy’s profile, and register the device. Then came the fun part – downloading the apps and letting Timmy get lost in the learning games!

LeapFrog LeapPad3 Product Details

The single issue we immediately had with the new LeapPad3 was with the stylus. I’ll admit, the issue is probably more with my kids than the actual device. Because of the new capacitive touch screen, the tablet comes with a soft-tipped stylus. The soft tip didn’t last long, simply due to the fact that it was unfamiliar and my Timmy was curious. Now the struggle comes in finding a replacement stylus.

LeapFrog products have always been a favorite around here, so it’s no surprise that I would highly recommend a LeapPad3 for your little ones. The design, quality, and age-appropriate content included just can’t be beat.

I received the LeapPad3 in exchange for this post as part of a promotional program with LeapFrog.


Special Delivery from LeapFrog

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on August 13, 2009

I was honored to make a very special delivery to my local library today. You see, I’m an Ambassador of Summer Reading and had the privilege of donating six Tag Readers and four Tag Junior Pals, along with tons of books, on behalf of LeapFrog.

Andi, a librarian at the Lincoln Public Library at Twelve Bridges, gave my kiddos and me quite the welcome this morning. She introduced us to the Mother Goose on the Loose storytime crowd and I could feel the excitement for LeapFrog over this generous donation.

Thank you, LeapFrog!!
