The skills and learning levels that this product promises to develop is pretty wide, since the LeapPad2 is compatible with an extensive library of Explorer cartridges and downloadable apps.

Thusly, your child can delve into more than 2500 skills in subjects ranging from reading, art and culture to math, geography and science and more.

The great thing about the LeapPad2 is that the skill levels adjust as the child progresses, so your eager student can go at his or her own pace.

Also, they can use the stylus or their fingers to touch, trace, create and play on the generous 5” touch screen, which displays apps just like Mommy or Daddy’s notebook or tablet.

With your help, they can even add a picture and their name to their LeapPad2’s main screen, which, along with the carrying case, will give them a sense of ownership, teaching them to take care of their belongings.
