The LeapPad 2 Explorer can handle three separate profiles (preschool to grade 6), has 4GB memory and is compatible with LeapFrog Explorer cartridges and the LeapFrog App Center for digital content. New this year is the additional camera-one on the front and one on the back of the tablet-and a video camera. The design is similar to the previous LeapPad, but the start up and response times are improved. Pre-reader testers as young as four have been able to navigate the Leap Pad 2 with ease. Small details enhance usability, too. One family reported appreciating that the writing apps are easily switched to accommodate left-handed children.

There is a growing library of content available for the LeapPad 2 Explorer, including different learning games, music, videos, eBooks and more. Applications are available for download to the tablet and game cartridges are available for purchase. The device comes installed with a few apps and you receive 5 more free when you connect it to your home computer (through Leap Frog Connect).
