    I remember back to my childhood days when we never had tablets or smartphones, so we made do with traditional toys and playing outside, which every kid loved to do!

    However, times have now changed, and it seems tablets are now the way of the future as technology is forever evolving.

    Your review of the Leapfrog Epic Android Tablet is Awesome, and this is definitely something that is fun and really user-friendly for children.

    With Christmas coming up, I will bare this tablet in mind for my younger brother.

    Great review on Leap Pads.

    I bought one for my daughter on her sixth birthday, and she loved it for about 18 months and then sadly outgrew it.

    It seems the later models that you describe cater towards older kids which is wonderful, as the Leap Pad is a great educational toy and should be geared towards kids even as old as eleven or twelve.

      I am glad she enjoyed the LeapFrog LeapPad. The EPIC model is a new model (released September 2015). I still cannot believe the technology for kids. LeapFrog does cater to the under 9 crowd. Thanks for the comments!

    Great review, I didn’t know there are tables for kids which can adapt the learning level and age of the kids.

    I am always a little bit reluctant in terms of children using the internet. But with this high level of customizable control I could change my mind.

    Seems this is a good way of helping kids to learn the digital world they have to live in later on:)

      Yes. Tablets for kids (the good ones) have parental controls. A parental account is required for the WIFI setup.

      Kids learn so fast. My granddaughter who is 13 months, loves to swipe my tablet.

    Hi Dee, you have an awesome website. Your site on tablets for kids is great for parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles and anyone else who needs to be informed abut the latest tablet for kids. I really like the idea that ages 3 through 9 can use the LeapFrog Epic 7. Buying this product means you can customize the tablet as your child becomes older. Terrific news since kids outgrow almost everything you buy for them nowadays. Thanks for a super review.

    HI There Dee

    We purchased a tablet for my two and a half year old son earlier in the year for his birthday, but it’s slow and what he can do on there is limited. He gets frustrated as he’s a clever kid.

    My partner and I have been looking around the internet to replace it for his main christmas present and we love the look of LeapFrog Epic, so we decided to try and find out a bit more about it.

    I have to say it looks great from your review but is it suitable for my sons age? (two and a half)

    Thanks in advance

      There are so many great features to this tablet. There are apps that are perfect for a smart 2 1/2 year old. Please check out more reviews. I think you will be pleased. Also this is on Amazons Holiday List.

    What would you say when comparing Leap Frog tablets to Ipad? I think leap frogs are great when it comes to their educational system. I bought several DVDs and books to help my boy learn phonics when he first started learning. But since then he picked up reading, writing, and math really quick. Even a lot of basic education Apps that I download on Ipad can’t compete with him.

    1. admin

      I agree. Leap Frog was invented to teach children to read. Since then their education systems are one of the best. They specialize in childrens education so you will find many features not available in the lpad. The parental security features is an example. You can read more about LeapFrog Here.

    The LeapFrog Epic sounds like an ideal handheld computer for kids. Having the rugged bumper is a big plus. This would be a much better option then letting the kids play with an iPhone or iPad.

    I really appreciate the fact that the LeapFrog Epic has a kid safe browser. The kids don’t like to have mom or dad looking over their shoulder when they surf the web. Now there is no fear of them stumbling upon something that they should not see.

    1. admin

      You are correct. Kids love playing with cell phones and tablets because they see everyone else on them. The LeapFrog Epic is a great alternative. Thanks for the comment!

    My daughter has already started to use both my wife and my iPads. And in the process have broken the screens. She only really watches YouTube, so is not get much education from them, so I think this would be great for her. Seriously considering getting her one for Christmas.

    What is the minimum age for this product? Also how durable is it? Will the screen get smashed?

      My granddaughter is 2 now and continues to play with her tablet. We bought the Kindle Fire tablet on Amazon last year when she had just turned 1. One of the reasons we bought it was it had a Kid Proof guarantee for 2 years. The Leapfrog tablet is good. However, you need to read the fine print on the LeapFrog kid proof guarantee. There is a difference between the regular guarantee and the Kid Proof one. The last time I checked Kid Proof only covered tablets bought via and not at retailers or online (like Amazon).
