Final Thoughts

The LeapPad3 is designed to provide a safe and fun experience for children aged 3 – 9 years old. If you had a previous LeapPad then you will notice that the LeapPad3 has been redesigned. It sleeker, lighter, has a quad-core processor and Wi-Fi and is designed to be handled by children, meaning LeapFrog have drop tested it so that if you drop it, unlike an iPad, it won’t shatter!

You get around 6 hours of constant use on the battery, and the LeapPad3 can be charged either from the charger or via USB (so you can charge it on the go).

The screen is a very clear 5” touchscreen and I found it to be very responsive.

And don’t worry about children seeing inappropriate content when surfing the web on the LeapPad3 as it uses LeapSearch powered by Zui. What that means is that only content that is appropriate is displayed, and that content has been approved by “learning experts”, so after watching that Sesame Street video you don’t have to worry about something else being shown!

There are well over 700 games and apps available for the LeapPad3, including games, eBooks and videos, so there should be something for everyone, and the games actually adapt to your child’s learning level.

You can even link up two LeapPad3’s using Pet Chat and Pet Pad Party, both of which are including with the LeapPad3, giving your child hours of fun, and you hours of peace and quiet.

There is also a 2MP front and rear camera which works well, and even the ability to record video at 480p. There is 4GB of on-board memory too.

The LeapPad3 works with both PC and Mac and is very easy to set up and use.

The LeapFrog LeapPad3 retails for £89.99 but as usual look around for a good deal. The LeapPad3 comes in either Green or Pink.
