LeapPad Ultra XDi Review

The LeapPad Ultra XDi is one of the most popular tablets designed for kids by the company LeapFrog.

Parents nowadays are having a hard time prying their children from the family tablet computer and the only time that they would have the chance to use it is when the child is fast asleep. And here enters the LeapPad Ultra XDi.

It is a high-resolution 7-inch tablet that differs greatly from the regular iPad or Android tablet since it is built intentionally for kids aged 3 – 9. It has a 1024×600 resolution robust touchscreen compared to the more fragile mainstream tablets.

The software it contains is well suited to support the learning of children. Far from the common assumption that the LeapPad only intends to entertain the child with games, it is actually well equipped with educational reading, writing and math puzzles. It has a kid-safe Web and access to a wide range of educator-approved apps. It is a child-proof and child-safe closed device that can handle the abuse from little troublemakers while giving them hours of fun and learning at the same time.


It has an ultra-tough design and has 11 apps included on the tablet
A kid can experience taking capture images and videos with its front-and-back cameras
Pet chat allows children to chat with pre-defined phrases and emoticons


Other cartridges and apps are sold separately and are more expensive than regular apps from androids and ipads.
It is noticeably slower compared to mainstream adult tablets

What customers have to say about the LeapPad:

“I wanted to get my 5-year old daughter a tablet of her own. She likes watching movies and playing games on my iPhone, but that just seems like mindless entertainment for the most part. The app store has lots of content (perhaps too much!), and I did not have a way of determining which had real educational’ value and which were just fluff. So, off looking for a kids’ tablet I went.â€

“I am very happy with this LeapPad. My daughter had the LeapPad 2 which after a while did not hold a charge. She loves the LeapPad Ultra. My son who barely touched his LeapPad 2 is now requesting a LeapPad ultra because he says it’s way better. My son is 7 and my daughter is 6 LeapPad is very age-appropriate and do not think you’re kids are too old for them because they’re not. I think parents tend to want to push their kids to know too much in such a short amount of time. They have the rest of their lives to learn, what is the rush? Any way review over and now I am ranting. Lol. I love the product and will be buying my son one soon!â€

“Perfect for kids who want to use a computer or tablet on their own. They can’t accidentally get into anything that isn’t designed for them. I got these for my children when they were 2 and have continued to upgrade (because we like to not because you have to) over the years. Most of the games are backwards compatible and easy for even a 2-year-old to use. There are also apps that sing educational songs, play tv episodes from leapfrog and some nick jr. and read along with books that require no interaction for younger kids. Most of the games we have are adaptive and automatically adjust to their playing level.â€
