LeapFrog announced today the new Leapster Explorer Camera and Video Recorder. The Camera & Video Recorder accessory turns the Leapster Explorer, already rich with more than 40 games and learning experiences, into a child’s very own digital camera.
Here’s what this new learning device can do:
This new accessory snaps into the Leapster Explorer‘s peripheral slot to expand the entertainment and learning possibilities. With the most built-in photo educational activities and LeapFrog’s largest, brightest full-color touch screen, the Leapster Explorer handheld with Camera & Video Recorder provides visual engagement in learning math and reading.
Using the Leapster Explorer Camera & Video Recorder, kids can:
- Take, edit and store up to 1,000 pictures
- Stretch, stamp and draw on pictures to create personalized snapshots or use them in activities
- Play eight learning activities using their photos
- Create personalized cards to email to family and friends
- Show off photos and photo albums with voice captions and background music
- Select one of six songs and direct a music video
Point. Shoot. Fun.
Kids can create music videos, photo albums and greeting cards, save their photos and videos to a computer, and share with family members. Additionally, they can earn badges for achievements such as completing Photojournalist missions. These badges can be converted to tokens by connecting the Leapster Explorer to LeapWorld, an online learning playground (leapfrog.com/leapworld). With these tokens, kids can personalize and enhance their LeapWorld experience.
The Leapster Explorer delivers more than 40 different learning and play experiences, and offers an unprecedented combination of handheld and online play for four- to nine-year-old kids. Featuring a high resolution touch screen, Leapster Explorer supports downloadable Leaplet Learning Apps, like e-Books and videos, and the click-in camera accessory, for high-tech, kid-tough learning and play.
The Leapster Explorer offers multiple levels of play, and, unique to LeapFrog products, games auto-adjust so a child can learn at just the right pace, keeping the content challenging and engaging. Parents can track their child’s progress with the LeapFrog Learning Path (leapfrog.com/learningpath), a unique online tool that shows parents where their child is excelling or could benefit from extra support, as well as sharing learning accomplishments along the way.
The Leapster Explorer Camera & Video Recorder accessory is sold separately and is MSRP $24.99. The Leapster Explorer is currently available online at leapfrog.com and at all major retailers, MSRP $69.99. For more information visit leapfrog.com/explorer.
