LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc., a provider of educational entertainment, announced two new platforms: LeapPad2 (targeted at ages 3-9), the next generation of the kid’s learning tablet LeapPad, and LeapsterGS (targeted at ages 4-9), a learning video game system.

The new LeapPad2 features higher resolution front-and-back cameras and video recorders, the new faster LF 2000 processor and double the memory (4 GB), all housed in a durable, kid-friendly design. LeapPad2 also has improved battery life and is compatible with a new internal battery system and recharger pack available separately.

LeapPad2 includes extensive free content: a music player with five LeapFrog Learning Songs, a new Cartoon Director creativity app, an Art Studio creativity app, the popular Pet Pad writing app and choice of an additional app. LeapPad2’s exclusive Cartoon Director app makes the most out of the new features, letting kids develop their inner director by creating and starring in their very own cartoons, as well as sharing their masterpieces with family and friends. By year’s end, the LeapPad content library will feature more than 325 game cartridges, apps, music, videos, eBooks and more. LeapPad2 is compatible with LeapFrog Explorer cartridges and LeapFrog App Center digital content.

LeapsterGS, the newest addition to the Leapster family, will offer “fast-action” gameplay packed with rich learning in a new learning video game system. It has a new thinner design, larger screen, built-in motion sensor plus camera and video recorder, the new faster LF 2000 processor and 4x the internal memory (2 GB). LeapsterGS is compatible with a new internal battery system and recharger pack available separately.
