LeapFrog & Leapster Explorer Offers Educational Mobile Learning

Early this year I attended an event where LeapFrog Enterprises announced the release of the Leapster Explorer Learning Experience. Leapster Explorer planned to deliver more than 40 different learning and play experiences by year-end, which would be a combination of hand-held and online play for 4 to 9 year old kids.

Featuring a finger-touch screen, Leapster Explorer supports downloadable Leaplet™ Learning Apps, like e-Books and videos, and a click-in camera accessory, for high-tech, kid-tough learning and play. Leapster Explorer also connects online to LeapWorld™, for a total mobile learning experience that offers kids new discoveries every time they play.

One cool feature in Leapster Explorer is the creation of a personal on-board pet via Pet Pad, an onboard app that lets kids create a personal pet to join them on their learning adventures. Children can take that pet with them back and forth into LeapWorld, where they can earn treats and accessories for their pet.

An impressive useful feature is Auto-leveling gameplay. Leapster Explorer stores information about a child's progress and adjusts game and activity challenges in real-time, for learning adventures that keep kids going on their own path, at their own pace.

Parents can access LeapFrog Learning Path, where they can see what their children are learning as they play with Leapster Explorer. Regularly e-mailed updates allow parents to share children's accomplishments, notice the areas in which they may need additional support and find new ideas for even more learning fun.

At the event I also had a chance to learn about the other products offered by LeapFrog Enterprises like their:

  • My Own Leaptop: Explore the alphabet, pretend play, music, animals and computer literacy with 6 learning activity stations. Parents can connect to the online LeapFrog® Learning Path for customized learning ideas and insights from LeapFrog.
  • Tag and Tag Junior Line: As children touch the Tag Reader to the pages of specially printed storybooks, words talk, pictures sing and stories live out loud, engaging children's senses to make reading a rich, fulfilling experience.
