Looking for the perfect holiday gift for children 3-9 years old? Consider the LeapPad2™ Power learning tablet this year. Children can use the LeapPad2 to create, learn and explore exciting apps, games, eBooks, videos and more!

The LeapPad2 features a 5″ touch screen and stylus, front and back cameras/video recorders, 4GB of internal storage and a rechargeable battery pack with AC adaptor so you don’t have to buy batteries for it!

We received a LeapPad2 Power and our 3-year-old loves it. He loves the Art Studio and the front camera because he can take photos of himself and use the Photo Lab app to edit them and add fun effects. He also enjoys the videos and eBooks.

I really appreciate that the LeapPad2 comes with the batteries charged to allow children to play with the device right out of the box. I hate when little ones are super excited about a toy and you have to tell them to wait for a few hours before being able to play. Not with the LeapPad2.

I found that the set-up, registration and download process was super easy and fast and the LeapPad was ready to go within a few minutes. We got out free app and my 3-year-old was super happy playing with it right away.


The LeapPad2 Power comes loaded with 9 apps including:

  • Art Studio App
  • Photo Lab App
  • Pet Pad App
  • Utility Suite
  • Calculator
  • Calendar
  • Note Pad
  • Clock with Stopwatch
  • LeapFrog Learning Songs (5 songs included)

Plus you get to choose 1 of 3 apps to download for FREE.

I really like the quality of the images and the screen and the fact that everything loads pretty fast and it transitions between apps without a long wait. This is specially important when you have an impatient toddler!

Something that I really appreciate about the LeapPad2 Power is that it features high-impact side bumpers and a rugged, rubberized frame that is kid-tough and durable, very important when my clumsy 3-year-old is going to be using it all the time.


LeapFrog offers a complete library of over 800 games, eBooks, apps and videos that are educational and inspire kids through play. I like that they are categorized by age group and you can easily download them on your computer and transfer them to the device.

You can also connect to the LeapFrog Learning Path to see the details of your child’s play and learning, including their levels achieved, skills practiced and recently played games. I like being able to keep track of his progress.

The LeapPad2™ Power tablet is a great first tablet for children and it would make a wonderful holiday gift! Just imagine their excitement when unwrapping their gift!
