I got Jas a Leap Pad 2 for her birthday. She was always taking over someones iPad or phone to play games so I thought she needed her own. Let me tell you, she loves it! She calls it her ipad and it really keeps her interested and entertained.
This thing is pretty neat. It’s for ages 3-9. It has a forward and rear camera. It records videos too. It comes preloaded with 4 apps for her to play. I can also buy game cartridges for her to play if I wanted to. I probably never will though because the apps are pretty handy.
Jas loves the ease of being able to navigate it all on her own. And I love that its educational. It can read her books. She can play games like her fave UmiZoomi which goes over her shapes and order recognition among other things
Another thing I love and would suggest if you want to purchase one of these for your little one is the Recharge Pack. This little device will kill some batteries and quick. When she 1st got it we used 4 regular AA Duracell batteries. They lasted 2 full days before they died. The Recharge Pack batteries once they have been charged up for a couple of hours last for weeks, at least for us. They have been in the Leap Pad 2 now for 2 weeks and they are still going strong.
This is Jasmine’s Leap Pad 2 or her iPad as she calls it. . .
It may be a bit pricey at $99 but I think its well worth it because she’ll have it to use for years. Christmas is coming! I say add it to your list!
