Gamifying education is a proven method of helping kids learn better. Our children these days are exposed to so much technology, why not give them a head start with something that is more productive? The LeapFrog LeapPad does just that, offering kid-targeted apps that teach kids math, reading, language arts, science and problem-solving skills. While on the pricier side, there is no doubt any kid would get hours of wholesome entertainment out of the LeapPad system. It simply pays for itself!
