LeapFrog Enterprises Inc. announced the launch of the LeapPad Ultra, a new kids’ learning tablet. The LeapPad Ultra is kid-tough and works with LeapFrog’s unique library of more than 800 content experiences designed or approved by LeapFrog’s learning experts. LeapPad Ultra is kid-ready right out of the box with LeapSearch by Zui, a proprietary kid-safe web browser that parents can trust. Unique to LeapPad Ultra, the 7-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 rechargeable battery, and front and back cameras and video recorders, plus 8 GB of storage for photos, apps, videos, and more.
With new intuitive parental tools including a four-digit security code, parents are in control of what their child is able to access, while the Wi-Fi allows them to directly sync content to their child’s LeapPad Ultra. Parents can easily browse, purchase, and download apps from LeapFrog’s library of learning games, apps, eBooks, videos, music, and more.
With LeapPad Ultra, LeapFrog is launching LeapSearch powered by Zui, a secure browser that lets children access and explore content in a closed environment that is easy to navigate. Children can use LeapSearch on their LeapPad Ultra to browse videos, images, and sites from the web that have been reviewed and approved by LeapFrog’s team of learning experts as kid-appropriate.
LeapPad Ultra also offers kid-safe peer-to-peer play across devices when two or more LeapPad Ultra tablets connect locally. In Pet Pad Party, one of the new apps with this feature, children can communicate and play with their friends and siblings in a kid-safe environment with their own personalized pet avatars.
LeapPad Ultra comes with extensive free content: a music player with ten LeapFrog Learning Songs, Art Studio Ultra and Photo Fun Ultra apps, the newly improved popularPet Pad app, the Pet Chat app, a utility suite with calculator, notepad, calendar, voice memo, and clock with stopwatch, as well as choice of an additional download from the LeapFrog App Center.
LeapPad Ultra is recommended for children 4 to 9 years old. LeapPad Ultra will be available for pre-sale at leapfrog.com and at major online retailers in the U.S., Canada, the UK, and Ireland beginning July 17, and available at major retail locations early August. LeapPad Ultra will also be available in select countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines, Korea, Thailand, and other Asian countries later in the fall.
