LeapFrog is an award-winning toy manufacturer that develops a range of tablet computers for children.
The original device manufactured by the company was the LeapPad, a tablet that was named Toy of the Year by Toy Manufacturers of America in 2001, and, in the same year, won the inaugural People Choice Toy of the Year Award.
For use with the device, LeapFrog has also developed a selection of books and cartridges. The books cover a variety of themes, from well-known Disney stories to popular childrenâs books. The LeapPad books are intended to help educate users through a variety of methods, such as repetition and rhyme.
The books are said to enhance vocabulary and phonic skills, as well as introducing children to reading at a young age. Above all, users are meant to find the educational process a fun, interactive and immersive experience. It should be noted that despite the range of pads available from the company, LeapFrog LeapPad books are only compatible with the original LeapPad tablet.
Other models in the line include My First LeapPad, aimed at very young users, and the LeapPad Explorer, which functions similar to an iPad and features child-friendly apps available for download.
