LeapFrog unveils new LeapPad Explorer learning tablet for kids

LeapFrog has been making some really interesting and high-tech learning toys for kids for a long time. These toys are often a little geek's first foray into the world of gadgets and electronics. The latest offering from LeapFrog has landed and it is called the LeapPad Explorer. The Explorer reminds me a lot of the VTech InnoPad that I mentioned last week.

The LeapPad Explorer is a cool little tablet hat has all sorts of activities that kids can play to help them learn letters and other basic educational stuff. The Explorer also has a lot of software that can be added to expand it including books, flash cards, and lots more. There will be over 100 games available for the tablet.

The tablet has a 5-inch screen that supports touch with a finger and with a stylus. The tablet is thin and very sleek, but is rugged enough to survive drops and other bumps that kids will put it through. The LeapPad Explorer will hit stores this summer and will sell for $99.99 with download apps for $7.50 and normal software titles on cartridges for $24.99.
