LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra vs the Amazon Kindle Fire
The LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra vs the Amazon Kindle Fire is going to be a popular comparison because of the popularity of these two tablets. There are over 20 kids tablets on the market today and it is hard to know what to buy as the market grows so I have reviewed most of them for you.
Introducing LeapPad Ultra
The new LeapPad has gone from a toy to a tablet this year. They have added WiFi, a larger HD screen, peer to peer operations, mp3 capabilities and video playback. These are some great new options and will make this new tablet from LeapFrog a best seller. They offer a LeapFrog Learning Path on your computer to download apps and give parents access to their child's progress in the educational games.
Introducing Kindle Fire
The Kindle Fire has been a popular tablet for many years but they have now added the FreeTime Unlimited for Kids. It allows you to add parental controls and have access to over 10,000 apps, books, games and videos for children. It has all the options of a normal tablet with the exception of cameras. Where the Kindle excels is amount of quality content and entertainment.

We have viewed the comparison of these tablets but you still might be unsure of which kids tablet to purchase. The LeapPad Ultra was built for 3 to 9 years and will offer some great educational value. The Cartridges are very expensive, around $25 a piece. Because of the extra durability of the LeapPad Ultra it is optimal for kids aged 3 to 6 years unless you have a child that is really rough on toys.
However if your child is 5 or older I would definitely consider the Kindle Fire. My son loves his HD model and FreeTime gives him something to do on it all the time. He loves the interactive books that read to him and highlights the words as he goes. They also have some cool Toy Story and Pixar games. It costs me $2.99 a month for the FreeTime Unlimited but I couldn't even purchase 2 game cartridges a year for that price.
My last piece of advice is if you want an even better tablet then you can purchase an HD model for the same price as a regular Kindle Fire on Holiday Weekends. I got his on the July 4th weekend and he picks it up at least once a day and it is great for when we go places; grocery store, doctors office, long car rides etc.
