LeapFrog‘s LeapPad is getting an upgrade this year with the biggest LeapPad tablet yet: the LeapPad Platinum. This tablet features a 7-inch high-resolution, multi-capacitive touch shatter-safe screen. It’s high-speed, high-performance and full of fun. This Wi-Fi tablet lets kids to learn and place in a way and at a pace that is right for them.

LeapPadPackageIn addition to all of the LeapPad learning material, it also features access to a 100-percecnt kid-suitable web experience and access to a library of more than 1,000 games, apps, ebooks, videos, and more that are all already educator approved. The LeapPad Platinum also lets different kids customize the look of their tablet on their profile, so they can really emulate the experience that Mom and Dad are getting on their iPads.

Along with the new LeapPad experience comes a new game, Imagicard. Imagicard lets kids use a camera on their LeapFrog tablet to capture cards in order to send numbers, letters, shapes, and favorite characters into magical learning gameplay that comes to life on screen. Imagicards come as new digital learning, curriculum based games.

I tested out the first level of missions from the Paw Patrol game, which is super adorable and features all of kids’ favorites from the Nickelodeon TV show. Kids are required to scan in the required pups on the Imagicards for whoever best suits the mission. Whether Chase has to catch bunnies or Marshall has to help fill up a fountain, there’s always a pup ready for the job!


The Paw Patrol Imagicard game is designed on a mathematics curriculum, so while kids are traveling Adventure Bay completing missions, they are also learning number recognition and basic math. All of this brainy education is wrapped up into fun missions, so kids can have fun while they learn.

Kids can also play these games without the Imagicards on their LeapPad tablet AND the cards come with instructions on how to use them as regular cards to play different games, if parents want kids to take a break from screen time. It gives kids the crossover experience between digital and physical play while still giving them the option to play one way or the other. This allows for additional play value, and the opportunity to play with Paw Patrol anywhere. The cards also come packed in an easy-to-travel-with tin.

Other available games include LeapFrog Letter factor for kids ages 4 to 7, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for kids ages 5 to 8.
