Dictionary.com defines the word Epic as “spectacular; very impressive; awesome” which perfectly describes why the new LeapFrog tablet is called the LeapFrog Epic.
So here’s how it all went down! I brought the LeapFrog Epic tablet home, I showed it to my oldest son to get him all excited about it and then realized I had to set it up (which didn’t take long) and charge it. So then this happened before bed …
After it charged, I spent the night navigating the LeapFrog Epic for myself and I have to say, I had a lot of fun with it. I found this great app that was pre-loaded onto it where you take a selfie with the tablet and then insert your face where the animals face is supposed to be (by the way, my little guy stumbled upon this picture the next day when he was playing with it and the laugh that came out of him was truly “epic”) making for one funny pic.
Even though the tablet is recommended for ages 3-9, for some reason I really didn’t think my oldest would be so into it … well was I wrong! The next morning after a full night of charging, the fighting over the tablet was CRAZY!!!! Both boys wanted to play with it so what was the best solution for them so I could stop playing referee? Play together boys or mama makes the tablet magically disappear and poof just like that, this happened …
Each of my little men have had solo turns playing with the LeapFrog Epic and with my younger one, he might be slightly too young for it (he’s 2), but he chooses the app he wants to play with from the main page and he just touches images and he is either navigated by a verbal prompt to do something else or he gets a response from what he has touched and then tries to touch more things (not bad for a 2 year old). My older son on the other hand navigated through it like had been using it for years.
What I love about the LeapFrog Epic:
There is a removable bumper (so far we have dropped the tablet about half a dozen times and it is still in 1 piece) though I am told that the tablet is very durable without it
-You can scale it up or down for difficulty or ease
-You have up to 3 accounts per tablet (I have set up an account for each of my kids) so it makes the kids feel like it’s their own
-20 apps are pre-installed
-It grows with the child
-No in app advertisements and no in app purchases (one of my favourite features)
-It doesn’t only test children it teaches children
– Can download over 1000 apps
– Parental Controls
– With parental controls, we can control the time they are playing (you can put on a timer)
– Can take pictures
– Expandable memory
– Under the parental controls you can search the internet
– Great apps to buy like Umizoomi, Paw Patrol, Doc McStuffins, Finding Nemo and other great names
– Real time weather
– Daily game with surprises
– 7″ tablet (has a great big screen)
– A virtual world that kids can create by adding characters, watch the night fall
– Android powered tablet (which means it has the latest technology)
I’m so overwhelmed by the amount of amazing features the LeapFrog Epic Tablet has and I would HIGHLY recommend this product for your kids, you (and the kids) won’t be disappointed. Add it to your holiday shopping list.
