LeapPad Ultra Offers Unique Benefits & a Give-Away!

Yesterday I wrote about some of the things I like the most about the new LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra today I want to let you know about some of the wonderful new features which help this LeapPad to stand out from all the other options on the market for touch learning pads for children.

One of the most surprising features on this new LeapPad is the way it allows children to explore the internet with a 100% secure web browser. LeapFrog says, "Only LeapPad Ultra has LeapSearch powered by Zui. Children can use LeapSearch to browse age-appropriate videos, images and sites from the web which have been reviewed and approved by LeapFrog's Learning Team and in a safe walled-off environment. The Wi-Fi access also allows parents to easily purchase and download content to their child's LeapPad Ultra and offers kid-sae peer-to-peer play across devices using Wi-Fi where two or more LeapPad Ultra tablets connect locally."

This is just cool! Not only is the LeapPad Ultra a learning tablet with a wealth of apps, games and eBooks, but since children can connect to the web with the secure LeapSearch, it opens up a whole new "world" of learning possibilities! There are literally dozens of categories for kids to discover, such as sports, arts and crafts, animals and the one my grandson explored on robots! There is nothing else like this which provides a completely secure opportunity for children to explore the web and learn! Very cool!

Another new and unique to LeapPad Ultra feature is the opportunity for children to play games with other children who have LeapPad Ultras! New games provide the opportunity for two player games and this is so much fun! I played LeapFrog Kart Racing with my grandson - and although I kept running into the walls, mud, trees, mountains, etc, it was a lot of fun! Along with being fun, this game helps children learn and develop their math skills! It is more than just a game for sure!

One of Josiah's favorite new features is the "Pet Chat" feature where he can "chat" with someone who has another LeapPad Ultra. Chat is limited to pre-selected words/phrases and emoticons, so it is absolutely secure and safe, but gives kids a fun way to interact with others!

LeapFrog sent me the new LeapPad Ultra for free so I could spend some time reviewing all the new features which make the LeapPad Ultra, "ultra" and I have to say in my opinion, the LeapPad Ultra is completely impressive! My grandsons LOVE their LeapPad Ultras and I know along with having a lot of fun with them, they will be learning . . . and discovering how learning can be fun which is a huge benefit!

I am absolutely thrilled to announce, not only did LeapFrog send me LeapPad Ultras to review, but they are generously making another LeapPad Ultra available for me to give away (USA only)!!! If you are 18+ you can enter the drawing for this give-away, which will be on September 15th, by commenting below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry for each way you "share" (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw a name from among people who would like to win the LeapPad Ultra and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
