Each tool undergoes rigorous testing to ensure the optimal learning methodology is implemented. Their proven method uses a multiple-learning approach that taps into many different senses. With a number of learning platforms and a library of software titles covering subjects from phonics, reading, writing, and math, your child will learn something new every day.
LeapFrog’s story: How it all began
LeapFrog was founded in 1995 by Michael Wood and Robert Lally. While working as an attorney, Mr. Wood began looking for an educational toy to help his son learn. He realized what he was looking for did not exist so he began working on a prototype himself. Mr. Wood took his prototype to Dr. Robert Calfee, a professor of education at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. With Dr. Calfee's feedback, Mr. Wood refined the first LeapFrog Phonics Desk. By early 1997, LeapFrog was distributed in over 10 countries around the world. Today, LeapFrog continues to develop innovative educational tools that children love.
LeapPad — the ultimate learning tablet for kids
At the forefront of LeapFrog’s product line is the LeapPad. They combine original, compelling, and multi-layered content with a high-resolution touchscreen. Plus, they are built to withstand the inevitable spills and impacts of active kids. All LeapPad tablets come preloaded with fun apps such as Photo Lab, Art Studio, Pet Pad, and LeapFrog Learning Songs. Some models feature built-in WiFi, providing access to LeapFrog's catalogue of over 800 learning games, eBooks, videos, music, and apps. This also allows your child to connect with other kids through peer-to-peer play, and have fun with the front and back cameras, video recording, MP3 player, and more.
