LeapPad Review

I am a huge LeapFrog fan! Our house has been filled with Leapfrog products for longer than I can even remember. Today I am going to review the LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum. We currently have four LeapPads in our house and these are hands down my children’s favorite LeapFrog product.

All LeapPad are modeled after tablets. These things are built to be used by kids and built to last!

LeapPad Review

LeapPad Platinum $129

LeapPad Platinum Features:

Large 7″ screen

WiFi capabilities (safe sites only)

Touch screen & stylus

Uses interactive Imagicards.

Uses either cartridges or downloadable apps.

Amazing parental controls.

Recommended ages 3-9 (but my 12 year olds enjoy this)


This LeapPad gives me the ability to not only control whether or not they hook up to wifi and what sites they access, but I can also set their playtime. I  set the number of minutes or hours per day they can play.  If they exceed the amount of time I have given them, they are no longer able to play. How cool is that?

This is an amazing piece of technology! The Platinum has beautiful, clear graphics. Kids can: watch videos, play learning games and take pictures and videos with this LeapPad. It is also the first LeapPad to have Imagicards. Imagicards are collectible trading cards that extend the game play. Kids are even able to trade cards with each other. My children have really enjoyed the addition of Imagicards.

LeapPad Platinum Pros:

* kids love it

*parental controls give me control over their play

*sturdy (we’ve had this a very long time, and no one has damaged it yet!

* we can use our cartridges or download games

*rechargeable (no need to buy millions of batteries)

*amazing learning games

LeapPad Platinum Cons:

This LeapPad only has room for 3 profiles and a guest profile. If you have more than 3 kids, you will run into issues with this.


LeapPad Platinum gets 4 out of 5 stars. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars  is I wish you could set up more than three profiles.
