LeapFrog Epic Android Tablet for Kids Grows Up as They Do

by Fox Van Allen on August 21, 2015

LeapFrog Epic kids tabletKids’ tablet giant LeapFrog this week introduced the LeapFrog Epic, a new full featured Android-based tablet designed to grow with your child. The Epic is designed for kids 3 to 9 years old and will start appearing on store shelves and online next month.

“Children expect technology that’s more like their parents’ – sleeker and faster, whereas parents want technology that has been designed with kids in mind and safely delivers educational and development benefits, not just another TV screen,” explains LeapFrog CEO John Barbour. “The LeapFrog Epic tablet is a perfect balance – a unique, full-featured kid’s tablet experience with the learning content and controls that parents can trust and all the play, creativity, and exploration children will love.”

The 7-inch tablet has a kid-friendly, customizable home screen based on Android 4.4 along with some pretty solid internals. Epic boasts a quad-core processor, front and back cameras, 16GB of storage and a six-hour battery. It also comes with a protective bumper and stylus for younger kids that can be removed as they get older and want a more adult-looking device.

Because the LeapFrog Epic is built with an Android backbone, children will be able to download and play popular, kid-friendly apps and educator-approved Android games like Doodle Jump and Fruit Ninja: Math Master. They’ll also have access to the pre-screened Leap Frog App Center with over 1,000 educational games and apps, all without in-app purchases. You, the parent, control what content children can access, what websites they can visit and for how long. This way, the tablet grows with your kids when you decide they’re ready.

The LeapFrog Epic tablet will be released in September 2015 at an MSRP of $139.99. For more information about the Epic, visit the LeapFrog website.

“Children expect technology that’s more like their parents’”

That’s right, so why do we keep giving them such sad, outdated technology? This thing has a two megapixel camera!
My daughter loves taking pictures, why would I give her a camera that barely functions?
I’ve yet to see a single kid’s tablet that seems like a better option than a used, adult-quality smartphone.
I got one from but I’m sure you can find one in any number of ways. It just makes a lot more sense to me.

between tablet and toy. This does seem to show some balance - not so daunting as a traditional tablet but not too simplistic, either. Access to the play store (but with parental controls) is a nice touch.
