Bottom Line

The LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum is designed specifically for kids and will therefore withstand the mishandling of clumsy little hands. If you have no problem digging into your wallet for extra content, it promises to offer a fun learning experience for your child.


The LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids is a 2015 7-inch tablet that received praise for its emphasis on durability which is enhanced by a tough plastic case and a “shatter-safe screen”. The kid-friendly software garnered positive reviews and parents loved the well-integrated, versatile parental controls. However, the device suffers sluggish performance and an average 5-hour battery life. Parents also criticized the LeapFrog’s limited app collection. Furthermore, there are no free apps in the app store meaning you will have to spend up to $20 to get full versions of the offered game-demos. Nonetheless, the LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum promises to offer decent educational value for kids between the age of 3 and 9.

    The $129.99 LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum is overpriced, underpowered, and doesn't offer as much as its kid-friendly tablet competitors.
