So last month I reviewed the new LeapPad2 and my boys still love it. Just the other day I downloaded a Rescue Bots video, Globe Game and Cooking Game, which I absolutely love that they have an app store. Oh and since we have two LeapPads (one old and one new) they can both have the new apps I purchase on each device!
Here is a quick re-cap of my LeapPad2 Review:
Some of my favorite features of the original LeapPad:
- Games compatible with Leapster Explorer and LeapPad (we have both so its nice not to buy different games)
- Ability to download games through an App store at reasonable prices
- Built-in Camera and video recorder
- Good size for kids to play and hold in their hands
- Stylus included and can be attached with string
The new LeapPad 2 has all the above features and then some!
Main differences between LeapPad 2 and LeapPad:
- Camera in Front and Back of LeapPad 2 (only 1 camera on back of LeapPad)
- Bigger Memory Size (4 GB compared to 2 GB)
- Recharger available
- Up to 9 hrs. of battery life (compared to only up to 8 hrs.)
- Bigger Processor (550 Mhz vs. 393 Mhz.)
BUY IT: Look for the LeapPad2 at your local retailer this month for a suggested retail of $99.99!
WIN IT: (1) US winner will receive a LeapPad2 and the game “Phineas & Ferb” ($125 value)
