LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer and LeapFrog LeapPad2 Explorer – the next generation of breakthrough educational entertainment platforms for kids

Two revolutionary new products will be hitting South African shores shortly – the LeapsterGS, the ultimate learning video game and the LeapPad2, the next generation of the number one children’s learning tablet.

 LeapsterGS Explorer  – the Ultimate Learning Game System

LeapsterGS Explorer, the newest addition to the Leapster family, will offer fast-action gameplay packed with rich learning in a revolutionary new learning video game system.

Children are requesting video games at an earlier age than ever. While a gaming system is sometimes inevitable, many parents would prefer to have an education-filled alternative. With LeapsterGS, LeapFrog has created a video gaming system that parents and children can agree on. While children will love the action-packed gameplay, parents will feel confident that their child is learning while doing something they love.

LeapsterGS represents the next generation of Leapster Explorer. It has a new thinner, sleek design, larger screen, built-in motion sensor plus camera and video recorder, the new faster LF 2000 processor and 4x the internal memory (2 GB).

LeapsterGS provides the ultimate educational video gaming experience. Children can take charge of the action with the built-in motion sensor by tilting, turning and shaking their way through the game. They can also bring the real world into their play- and put themselves right into the game – with the built-in camera, video recorder and microphone. LeapsterGS delivers on fast-action gameplay while building core skills for success in school and in life.

LeapsterGS comes with free content, including the new “Escape of the Sillies” game app, the popular Pet Pad writing app and choice of an additional app. Exclusive to LeapsterGS, the “Escape of the Sillies” app immerses children into the game with the built-in camera and face-morphing technology, where they can customise faces of silly monsters while building their maths skills.

By year’s end, the LeapsterGS content library will feature 200 action-packed game cartridges, apps, music, videos and more. LeapsterGS is compatible with LeapFrog Explorer cartridges and LeapFrog App Centre digital content.

The LeapsterGS Explorer  will be available by the end August in all major retailers nationwide.


LeapPad2 Explorer – The Number 1 Children’s Learning Tablet Just Got Better

Within a year of launch, LeapPad has received multiple awards, including being part of the prestigious Toy Retailers Association’s Dream Dozen, and winning the hotly contended “Toy of the Year” and “Lifestyle Toy of the Year” titles at the British Toy Industry 2011 Awards.

LeapPad was one of the hottest and most sought after children’s products last year, and it received significant praise from parents, educators and the industry. With the introduction of the innovative LeapPad2 platform, LeapFrog continues to revolutionise and lead the category with engaging entertainment experiences filled with life-changing education that help children reach their potential.

The new LeapPad2 features higher resolution front-and-back cameras and video recorders, the new faster LF 2000 processor, double the memory (4 GB) and improved battery life – all housed in a durable, child-friendly design.

LeapPad2 also includes extensive free content: a music player with five LeapFrog Learning Songs, a new Cartoon Director creativity app, an Art Studio creativity app, the popular Pet Pad writing app and choice of an additional app. LeapPad2’s exclusive Cartoon Director app makes the most out of the new features, letting young learners develop their inner director by creating and starring in their very own cartoons, as well as sharing their masterpieces with family and friends.

By the end of 2012, the LeapPad content library will feature 200 game cartridges, apps, music, videos, eBooks and more. LeapPad2 is compatible with LeapFrog Explorer cartridges and LeapFrog App Centre digital content.

To date, LeapFrog’s Leapster gaming products have won almost 20 awards, including the Top Toy Awards Highly Commended Award and the Best Game at last year’s Rainbow Awards.

The LeapPad2 Explorer will be available by the end of September in all major retailers nationwide.

 A Robust Content Library

LeapPad2 and LeapsterGS open the door to a shared library full of engaging and educational content. To help parents navigate the vast amount of children’s digital content available today, with varying degrees of quality, LeapFrog has created a complete solution of high-quality content that is safe and age-appropriate. This robust library is a combination of LeapFrog educational entertainment content designed by in-house educational and gaming experts, and engaging content from some of the biggest names in children’s entertainment, carefully selected by LeapFrog’s experts for educational value and age appropriateness.

Whether children want fast-action gaming or to explore their inner artist, every LeapFrog game cartridge and app is embedded with core learning skills. The LeapFrog App Centre, which launched in 2011, is filled with high-quality collections of educational apps, music, and videos from content partners.

The aspirational gaming features of LeapsterGS put children into the action and keep them practicing important academic skills. The intuitive tablet format of LeapPad2 allows children to explore creativity and build skills including language, maths and science.
