Buying a tablet for kids. LeapFrog's LeapPad Ultra.

Techstination feature for Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Buying a tablet for kids.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   If you have kids in the household…chances are they can’t wait to get their hands on whichever tablet happens to be around.   There are plenty of choices when it comes to tablets made for kids.  Some use Android with added parental controls.   Companies like VTech and LeapFrog…have taken a different approach.   LeapFrog’s newest model, the LapPad Ultra, maintains the company’s focus on learning apps.  And, says Learning Team manager Jody LeVos…

With LeapPad Ultra, one of the highlight features is the fact that we have child-safe WiFi.  So straight from the box, children will be able to access content from Web sites, images and videos that have been approved and curated by my team of learning experts.  So everything is safe.”

There’s a seven inch screen, dual cameras and a rechargeable battery.    The hundred fifty dollar price tab may be drawback for some, but like other LeapFrog products, it is built to last.   You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
