Recommended for children aged four to nine years old, the new LeapPad Ultra is durable and ready right out of the box with LeapSearch by Zui, a proprietary kid-safe web browser. LeapPad Ultra will be available at a guide retail price of £119.99, and works with LeapFrog’s library of more than 500 high-quality content experiences designed or approved by LeapFrog’s learning experts.
The seven-inch Duo Tech high-resolution screen is designed to help children learn to write using a stylus while supporting interactive touch experiences. Additionally, LeapPad Ultra features a sleek new look, a long-lasting rechargeable battery, and front and back cameras and video recorders, plus 8GB of storage for photos, apps, videos, and more.
The launch of LeapPad Ultra comes at a time where there is growing concern about children’s exposure and ease of access to content on the web as well as a rise in accidental ‘in-app’ purchasing, where children unknowingly download content to their parents’ tablets or smartphone devices at a cost, whilst they play. With LeapPad Ultra’s parental controls, these concerns have been eliminated.
Chris Spalding, senior vice president and managing director EMEA at LeapFrog, said: “LeapPad Ultra is testament to LeapFrog’s unswerving commitment to, and understanding of, both child and parent. Following the success of our LeapPad tablets over the last two years, we are once again delivering a first class innovation in educational entertainment that not only delights and fuels little growing minds, but gives that all-important peace of mind and invaluable confidence to parents. Thanks to our in-house Learning Team, parents can trust that children using LeapPad Ultra will be exploring and learning in a safe, stimulating and personalised environment as all games, activities and videos have been specifically designed and vetted just for them.”
