Any parent wishes nothing but the best for their children, right? The way to a better life is through education. We can agree with that, can't we? What if I told you that there was a toy that could help your child to learn how to learn, and at the same encourage the development of their creativity. This tablet does just that.  Read on for a comprehensive LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer Tablet review.

The LeapFrog Explorer Learning Tablet is designed to help children aged 4 through 9 learn. It covers mathematics, reading, and science. But it's also much more than just that. It encourages the development of a child's creativity too, thus making it almost the perfect teaching tool. And the best part is that your children will think it's nothing more than just an incredibly fun toy while they learn.

How It Works


It's actually a fairly sophisticated device. It is interactive and adjusts its teaching level as your child'sGreat Learning Toy for Kids Up to the Age of Nine(80155)Credit: http://www.amazon.com/LeapFrog-LeapPad-Explorer-Learning-Tablet/dp/B004Z7H07K/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top abilities increase. It's similar to a student being rewarded for hard work by being promoted in school. As your child works through the apps that come with the tablet or those you choose to buy and download into the machine, it tracks their progress and increases the levels of difficulty and sophistication as progress warrants. Even better, it remembers your child's progress, so they don't wind up repeating the same information over and over. Subjects that can be taught are mathematics, science, and particularly important, reading. It can also be set up to notify parents by email of their child's progress.


The LeapFrog Explorer also encourages and develops a child's creative abilities. Making use of the included Story Studio, Art Studio, and the built-in camera, which is capable of recording video too, your kids can make their own videos. By using the camera, and following the voice-guided instructions they can learn how to take photos, modify them, and drop them in storybooks using the free apps.

It's Tough

Since it was designed to be used by young children, it was built to withstand the rigors that any childhood toy might face. It can handle the messy fingers, and the shaking or other physical insults and keep going.

Each works like 3 books in one. They have 3 levels of text, and 3 modes of teaching. Kids can touch a word to see the image it represents, or touch the image to see where it appears in the text. They can touch words to hear how they sound. As the child progresses, the eBook adjusts to the different levels to keep the child learning.
