ideas, innovations and apps for social work in the age of smartphones and social media
LeapFrog Enterprises recently announced the launch of a new kids’ learning tablet, LeapPad Ultra. Designed just for kids, the LeapPad Ultra has an integrated kid-safe web browser and a learning library of 800+ educator-approved games, apps and more.
“For the past two years, our LeapPads have been the best-selling learning tablets1 for children across many countries and have won more than 25 prestigious awards, including the TIA’s Educational Toy of the Year awards and 2013 People’s Choice award,” said John Barbour, chief executive officer at LeapFrog. “When parents select a tablet for their child, one of the key criteria is the availability of a wide variety of fun and engaging learning content. LeapFrog’s educational content library of more than 800 games, apps, eBooks, videos, music and more has won numerous awards from parents, teachers and industry experts, and our cartridge content was the #1 selling toy at retail in the U.S. last year2.”
“LeapPad Ultra has been designed to offer a safe and age-appropriate experience vetted by LeapFrog’s in-house learning experts,” continues Barbour. “Children can explore and play on their own while parents feel confident that their children are learning and engaging in a kid-safe environment with games, activities, videos and more designed just for them. With more features, including Wi-Fi with a kid-safe browser, we believe that LeapPad Ultra will be the top item on children’s wish lists this year.”
