A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn all the preschool basics like reading, writing, math, science, art, and music, as well as social emotional concepts and self-care. There's a personalized learning path to follow or "Your World," where kids can access subjects and activities at will.
Ease of Play
Games are geared toward little ones, but there are a lot of navigation paths in the app, and younger kids may struggle to find what they're looking for.
Products & Purchases
LeapFrog has a whole range of toys, games, entertainment media, and software with their branded characters and activities.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
While the subscription may be a bit steep, kids will find more educational games and activities than they know what to do with. LeapFrog Academy Learning relies on expertly crafted content from people who understand child development and early education curriculum, meaning you're going to get solid, age-appropriate learning. The guided pathway is easy enough for kids to follow and keeps kids from sticking exclusively to their favorite activities. Little ones might find the greater dashboard to be overwhelming, however. It's hard to know where to go with so many choices. As with all LeapFrog content, some games are more fun than others, and some have more clear objectives than others. And it would be nice to see some more in-depth content that uses the screen in an innovative way, even if that means less content overall. All in all, this is an excellent choice for parents looking to entertain their kids and/or augment the preschool learning they've already received. You'll pay for it, but you can be assured you're getting some solid digital learning materials.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
