LeapPad Platinum and LeapFrog Imagicard

LeapFrog have only gone and done it again, they've gone and made an even better LeapPad. Now whilst I can't bring you a proper review yet I thought I'd tell you a little bit about the brand new LeapPad Platinum and the compatible LeapFrog Imagicard.

The Imagicard cleverly brings characters and learning to life with a simple snap of a picture. The Imagicard games can be played on Leapfrog's most advance LeapPad, the Platinum but they are also backwards compatible with all other LeapPads excluding LeapPad 1.

Some of the titles which are launching with the LeapFrog Imagicard are as follows :

“We were looking to create a physical and digital experience with LeapFrog Imagicard games that provided a more social and traditional learning environment, while still offering an incredibly engaging play experience for children,” said Dr. Jody LeVos, director of learning at LeapFrog. “Through parent and child testing, we found that parents loved the idea of a collectible card experience that helped their children develop and grow as they played.  And, children loved that they could bring their favourite characters to life in an interactive tablet experience, as well as collect and share cards with their friends.  We know that children learn best when they’re having fun, and our new LeapFrog Imagicard experience delivers on this in a big way.”

Some of the titles which are launching with the LeapFrog Imagicard are as follows : 

·         LeapFrog Letter Factory (for ages four to seven). LeapFrog Imagicard Letter Factory allows kids to step right up to the magical Letter Factory Carnival with LeapFrog’s popular family of inquisitive frogs. Literacy skills are the ticket to unlocking new attractions where children can play fairground games to earn tickets at the prize wheel, use those tickets to let the letter cards into the carnival, and go on quests to find lost items that begin with each letter. For example, find and return the letter A’s apple for a bonus coin. More than 50 Letter Factory trivia questions add to the fun. Take selfies with Tad and Lily, and decorate the images with stickers earned during play.

·         Paw Patrol (for ages three to five). Join Ryder and the PAW Patrol as they lend a paw for Adventure Bay Appreciation Week, and unleash mathematics and problem-solving skills to earn Good Citizen badges. Patrol the bay for citizens who need help, and then find the pup with the right tools and skills for each mission. Challenge your PAW Patrol knowledge by answering 50+ trivia questions, plus, have a PAWsome time taking selfies with favourite pups, and decorate the images with stickers earned for completing missions.

·         Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (for ages five to eight). Team up with the Turtles and deploy shell-tastic mathematics skills to recover mutagen canisters that are scattered around the city. Play as Mikey, Leo, Donnie and Raph and complete fact finding missions by solving equations and feeding the team pizza using fraction skills. Scan in multiple cards to see how they interact in the animation fun zone, play trivia, and take selfies with them in ninjutsu poses.

The games present new ways to solve problems and have 30+ interactive collectible cards that come to life on the LeapPad Platinum. The cards even come with a tin for easy storage and are digitally included within games so they can be continued to be used when kids are on the go.

LeapFrog Imagicard (RRP £19.99 per game, for children three to eight years old) will be available online and at major retail locations in August 2015. The LeapPad Platinum tablet (RRP £99.99, for children three to nine years old) will be available in green and pink online and at major retail locations in July 2015.
