Win a LeapFrog LeapPad2 Or Games & Accessories Valued At R1299.99

Brought to you by:Prima logo - Black

After my last blog post about the benefits of digital game play for children, I have received numerous requests for information about suitable games & app’s for kids and most notably about the LeapFrog LeapPad. When I mentioned this to the folks over at Prima Interactive they sent me some interesting information about the benefits of the LeapPad and an opportunity for one lucky reader to win!

So here is everything you need to know about the newly released LeapFrog LeapPad 2:

32610LPE_LEAPPAD2_HW_GRN_PKd6 copy

The number 1 learning tablet just got better!

  • LeapPad2 Explorer inspires kids to imagine and explore with front-and-back cameras, 4 GB of memory and a library of 125+ apps for limitless learning and fun!
  •  Explore a library of 125+ LeapFrog Explorer cartridges and downloadable apps, including innovative book apps, videos, music, creativity apps and more!
  • LeapPad2 comes with 5 apps: Pet Pad, LeapFrog Learning Songs, Cartoon Director, Art Studio and one app of your choice.
  • Works with all LeapFrog Explorer cartridges and apps (sold separately).
  • Capture your world in two ways with front and back cameras/video recorders! Trace, create and play by using your finger or the included stylus on the brilliant 5 touch screen, control the action in games with motion-based play and record your own voice with a built-in microphone!
  • Progress is remembered from game to game so the learning and fun keep moving forward!
  • The LeapPad 2 has a faster processor and 4GB of memory.
  • Parents can connect to the free, online LeapFrog Learning Path to see specific details of their child’s learning progress and share achievements and artwork with family and friends.
  • Parents can see and share their child’s learning progress through the online LeapFrog Learning Path.
  • Features limitless learning and endless play for children ages 3 to 9 years.

We bought one for Ava for her birthday last year and she has had hours of fun with it. She loves taking photo’s with the camera and also likes playing all the games. Playing with her LeapPad has done wonders for her concentration, as well as developed her numerical literacy, phonics skills & word building. It’s also been amazing to be able to track her progress using the LeapFrog Learning Path. And of course, because the LeapPad is designed for children, it’s really durable and I don’t need to worry about her damaging or breaking it. The touchscreen is easy to use and it has been amazing seeing a whole world of fun learning open up for her during her playtime on her LeapPad.

Last Christmas, the LeapFrog LeapPad was the no. 1 selling kids item for Christmas in retail stores and I have no doubt with the launch of the LeapPad2 that it will be the no.1 selling kids item again this Christmas.

And now here’s an opportunity for you to get in there early……

One lucky reader will win a LeapFrog LeapPad2 valued at R1299.99 and don’t worry, if you already have a LeapFrog LeapPad, you can enter too and win a LeapFrog LeapPad hamper to the value of R1299.99 which will include:

  • LeapFrog Headphones – Green

  5. And for extra entries, share on Twitter including me ( @sharonVW ) and/ on Face Book  tagging me ( @The Blessed Barrenness)
