LeapPad3 and LeapPad Ultra XDi provide access to LeapFrog’s Learning Library of games and apps designed or approved by LeapFrog’s team of learning experts. Both feature shatter-safe screens and the LeapSearch browsing tool.

LeapPad3 is the fastest, highest-performance five-inch tablet ever from LeapFrog, with Wi-Fi and a new capacitive touchscreen. LeapPad3 has 4GB of memory – enough to store 20,000 photos – as well as two mega-pixel front and back cameras and video recorders, and a built-in lithium ion rechargeable battery.

Parents also have the choice to go large with the LeapPad Ultra XDi, LeapFrog’s seven-inch Wi-Fi tablet. LeapPad Ultra XDi builds on the success of the award-wining LeapPad Ultra. LeapPad Ultra XDi offers a high-resolution touch screen, 8GB of memory – enough to store 40,000 photos – and access to hundreds of downloadable apps. LeapPad Ultra XDi also includes front and back mega-pixel cameras and video recorders, a rechargeable lithium ion battery and an on-board MP3 player.

Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, director of LeapFrog’s Learning Team, said: “Parents searching for their child’s first tablet are confronted with many choices that say they are designed for kids or have access to a library of ‘educator-endorsed’ content. However, on closer inspection these tablets may be fun but lack the essential deliverables parents are looking for in a safe educational experience for their child. LeapPad3 and LeapPad Ultra XDi offer parents the perfect introductory tablets that are high-performing, and have access to a kid-safe web experience designed for a child to explore their passions and interests along with a learning library of high-quality games and apps. Parents can feel confident that when they hand their child a LeapFrog tablet, whether a LeapPad3 or LeapPad Ultra XDi, they are providing the perfect first tablet experience designed for kids – full of learning and packed with fun.”

Both tablets are suitable for children aged 3-9 years old and will be available in green and pink online and at major UK retail locations on 28 July 2014. For more information, visit http://www.leapfrog.com/en-gb/products/tablet-family.
