WSJ Praises LeapPad Explorer’s Reading Apps, Developed by Virtuos

The LeapPad Explorer tablet is a personalized learning tablet designed for kids ages four and up, with downloadable apps and cartridge-based apps including games, interactive books and more. Virtuos developed a series of reading apps for this new platform that are receiving praise from Wall Street Journal columnist Katherine Boehret.

Wall Street Journal: A Tablet Children Can Grow Into

My favorite app was the Ultra eBook, “Cars 2: Project Undercover.” LeapFrog’s ultra eBooks are like eBooks on steroids. They let kids record themselves reading an entire book and play it back. They’re animated and have six built-in comprehension activities and three games. They offer stories written at three text levels and they use a visual dictionary for vocabulary development.
