Wanting to add “Google Play” Android Apps to the Epic? Find out how, here.
LeapFrog has further taken the lead in child tablets and truly created an Epic device. Think “learning tablet meets Android device”. It’s an Andriod based tablet that grows with your child and it’s the first tablet that has everything I want for my older child.
The recommended ages for the LeapFrog Epic are 3-9 years. However, I find it perfect for my 10 year old. It’s the ONLY tablet I’ve found that offers my son the games he wants and the online security I want. Rather than handing over a phone or offering an ipod type device, he has his own device with what we both want:
LeapFrog games and apps are specifically designed to make learning fun for young learners. They are quality filled educational fun! As my 3 year old ages into these apps, my older son is aging out. He grew up excelling through LeapFrog. The LeapFrog Epic comes preloaded with a few LeapFrog apps and the ability to download games from the LeapFrog App Center. LeapFrog apps are highly researched, award winning, educational apps and there are many to choose from in the App Center (including those featuring your child’s favorite characters). There will come a time though, as it has with my 10 year old, when they are ready for more from their tablet. That’s where the beauty of this Android based tablet comes into play. As your child grows, parents can feel good about still offering the security of LeapFrog.
