Top Ten Christmas Toys and Gifts for 2015

Top Ten Christmas Toys and Gifts for 2015

This site is in its eight year and this year we are going to be exploring the Top Ten Christmas Toys and Gifts for 2015. I am a Grandmother who has always loved toys. On this site we explore the many new toy and gift items for Christmas 2015. We started this site for Christmas 2008 and because so many of the toys we have reviewed each year are still very popular we have left the information for each year on the site.

Christmas is a very big holiday in our family. Although I am a senior, my family teases me because I still believe in Santa Claus. I believe in the mystery and the excitement that the feeling of Santa coming in his sleigh loaded with presents. It is a magical season! However it can also have a level of stress. Not the least of this stress comes from shopping and finding the perfect gift. I think I have found a great solution to some of this stress. For Christmas 2015 this is particularly important to me as I am in recovery mode having had an emergency hip replacement. I am so glad that I have learned to shop online. It will make my lack of mobility easier to manage.

Who says you cannot teach old dogs new tricks? A few years ago if you had asked if I would do all my Christmas shopping online I would have laughed and said not a chance. However in the last eight years that is exactly what I have done. I love the fact that I can sit in the comfort of my own home and browse the selections at my leisure. It is wonderful not to spend a half hour looking for a parking place to then enter a crowded shopping mall and be jostled about by all the other frantic Christmas shoppers. Did I mention the frustration of finding that the must have Christmas 2015. toy has been sold out. I have become the biggest fan of Amazon.com. They seem to have stock when no else has it. There is no doubt that they seem to have the lowest prices combined with free shipping on many items. Personally I have found their customer service to be exceptional.

We have done extensive research at the online shopping sites and we can recommend both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca if you wish to save money and be able to find a supply of these items. They e-mail us daily to update us on the availability and we will update the site. Many of these top ten Christmas ideas qualify for free shipping.

Buuuuttttttt returned it at no extra cost to me and they immediately sent out a replacement for her. She was only without the bird a few days. Brilliant service when it could’ve gone bad. Thank you x I have a very happy girl p.s my boys like it to lol.”
“We have already named this, so now it is called Peter, after my Nan’s late budgerigar, and he has told us that he thinks that name is awesome. This is very interactive, and because he has a fuzzy skin as such can be petted. What I really like about something like this is that it can get children used to having a real pet when they are older, so if they interact and play with this they will more likely take to a kitten or puppy in a few years, and be responsible owners.”

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven Perfect Christmas gift

The Girl Scouts Cookie Oven is marching off the shelves for Christmas 2015. It caught my eye as a perfect Christmas gift for my Granddaughters. We have three of them involved in the Girl Scout’s organization. Here in Canada, it is considered Girl Guides. We have two younger ones in Sparks and the older one a Guide. Every cookie-selling season they are out there enthusiastically selling boxes and boxes of cookies. Of course, in between times, if they are lucky they might find some in the freezer but in reality they just have to wait until there are more cookies to sell. While waiting, the Girl Scouts Cookie Oven will allow them to make their own cookies.
The Girl Scouts Cookie Oven is a real working oven where little bakers can start from scratch to mix, bake, and ice, their own Girl Scout cookies. The Patent Pending heating technology cooks cookies while preventing burning small fingers.

What’s In the Box?

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

  • Oven
    Baking pan
    Spatula
    Measuring tool
    Thin Mints starter mix

 
 
 
 
 
 

Pros of the Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

  • Real working oven
    Oven preheats in 5 minutes
    Children learn the basics of baking
    Can see cookies baking in window
    Patent Pending heating technology cooks cookies
    Self-slider to control safely putting and taking cookies from oven
    Easy to set up
    Refill mixes readily available
    Outside of oven does not get too hot

Cons of the Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

  • Takes time during baking and cooling processes
    Need to use the starter mixes for it to work successfully
    Very small cookies

What Others Are Saying About the Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven The Girl Scouts Cookie Oven currently has a 3.9 out of 5 stars rating at Amazon.com. It has only been available for a short time and here are some of the comments:

“This is a fun toy for a child, boy or girl, interested in baking. It is easy to use and the outside does not get too hot. the measuring is fun with the syringe and the child is rewarded with a tasty treat for following the directions. there are a wide variety of replacement mixes available including oatmeal, peanut butter, trefoils, sugar, chocolate chip, coconut caramel and PB sandwich”
“This is a cute and fun oven. It is really not difficult to do and my kids enjoyed it a lot. They really loved the idea of having their own little oven. It was not difficult to make the cookies from the mix and put them in. They really loved having their own oven. I also liked that it was very safe, especially compared to the real oven (Of course I still always used supervision). They can see the cookies cooking in the window, which they liked. The cookies are close to, but not exactly like, the real thing.”
“My daughter just turned seven years old and she loves any kind of projects. She also loves helping to cook in the kitchen. My eight year-old son, not so much. BUT, he enjoys eating cookies and we have found that he will sit still long enough to help his sister make the cookies since he knows he will get to eat some of the cookies.”
“Short version of the review: The product works, the instructions are quite extensive, and it takes around 30 minutes to make a small batch of cookies.

Long version: The oven looks cute, doesn’t weigh much, and comes with everything you need to make a single batch of Thinmints.

Setup isn’t too hard, plug in, turn on and start work on the batter. The Thinmint instructions take around 30 minutes including a variety of steps, including cooling, washing and decorating. The small tray needs to be lubed up a little.

In our case, the water mentioned in the directions was too little – we needed to add almost twice as much to get a decent consistency. Scooping is a challenge because the batter is extremely sticky.”

Instructions for Using the Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven

  • Wash and dry all the parts.
    Mix the cookie batter
    Scoop into the tray
    Slide the tray into the oven
    Cook for 7-9 minutes (needed 10 in our case)
    Let cool for 10 minutes
    Slide the tray out
    Remove the cookies, and place on wax/parchment paper
    Melt the icing/chocolate cover
    Decorate the cookies
    Let cool, eat

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven Refill Pack Bundle: Thin Mints, Caramel Coconut, PB Sandwich, Chocolate PB, and Trefoils

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven Refill Pack BundleGirl Scouts Cookie Oven Refill Pack Bundle: Thin Mints, Caramel Coconut, PB Sandwich, Chocolate PB, and Trefoils is a set of 5 Girl Scout Cookie Oven Refill Packs. These packs allow your bakers to make a variety of cookies and tastes.

VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway

VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway

VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway Top Selling

VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway, perfect for preschoolers, is touted to a best selling toy for Christmas 2015. The large sized tracks are brightly colored, easy to put together, the car is easy to control, has neat stops along the tracks such as a pit stop, and children can make their own track plans.
VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway works with Go! Go! Smart Wheels, Go! Go! Smart Animals and select Go! Go! Smart Friends playlets (each sold separately).
Although it is listed for ages one to five I think maybe it will be more fun for ages three to five. The younger children might enjoy it if their parents are committed to setting it up and playing with it as their child watches and interacts with guidance. With this parental participation the tracks will stay put together, the car will stay on the tracks, and the child will not become frustrated trying to make it work. Children often get much more out of their toys when their parents play with them.

What Is In the Box?

    VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway

  • 9 SmartPoint location
    1 SmartPoint racecar toy
    3 AAA batteries included for demo only, use new batteries for regular used
    1 SmartPoint remote controller
    13. 5 feet of interchangeable track pieces.
    8 mechanical features

 
 
 

Pros of the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway

    VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway

  • Tracks are large and easy to put together
    Children can follow included plans or make their own configuration
    Racecar Ralph has fun sayings and songs
    Remote control is easy to use
    Can be used with other Go! Go! sets

 
 
 

Cons of the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway

  • Needs 3AAA batteries for the car and 2AAA batteries for remote control
    Need to buy another Car with remote to play with a parent or friend
    Lack of written instructions for assembly.
    Takes up a big space when assembled

What Others Have To Say About the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway

VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC SpeedwayThe VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway has an outstanding 4.5 out of 5 stars rating at Amazon.com. Most owners of this fun raceway are very enthusiastic about it. Here are some of their reviews:

“My 2 year old has had a lot of fun learning to control the remote for the car. Very impressed with this vtech track. We have a lot of the other tracks but this one made our little guy more excited to play with it.”
“One of my favorite possibilities with this playset is that it can connect to other playsets for an even bigger track. This is especially true with the elevator portion of the track, which can connect to more track pieces for a different route if you so choose. I’m excited to buy more pieces and will look forward to what VTech Go! has in store for future releases.”
“This is soooo much fun! I was so thrilled when I got it that it was as big as it was, I was expecting smaller cars and tracks, and with little ones that would not have been good. The kids love love love this raceway and with the elevator going up and down and the ring sending the car through they were amazed at every turn. I know daddy was having way more fun than the kids and that is pretty hard since they were jumping up and down. Really one of the best toys we have gotten this year! Thinking about getting another set for Christmas so they can hook together. Love that you can add to any set you have.

I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion, and THIS IS AWESOME!!”
“This speedway toy is really fun. It is interactive with lots of sounds and lots of moving parts.
If you are giving this as a gift it might be helpful to know that is heavy and comes in a large box (which measures almost 25” x 16” x 6”). The box does come with a carry handle. This toy will need batteries (2 AAA for the remote and 3AAA for the car). I love all the bright colors in this racetrack. When you set up the track it is about 54 inches wide. The track pieces are interchangeable and you can set it up in so many different way. That part is a lot of fun. This toy is great for young children. They had no trouble using the remote and had a blast racing the car around the track.”
“-Encourages teamwork
– Children 4 to 6 years will be able to put the train track parts together without assistance
– Wide variety of layouts
– Encourages imagination, as well as cause/effect skills for youger children”
“This VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway is fairly easy to setup and is a lot of fun for both my grandson and his parents. This set is fairly large and is brightly colored with lots of moving parts, which just amuses the heck out of my grandson. The age range is listed as 1 – 5 years old but my 11-month old grandson as able to make the connection between pushing the large friendly buttons and the car moving on the track.

The quality is quite good and we have not seen any issues with the vehicle getting hung up or coming off the track unexpectedly. I like that this is very interactive and can be used by even older kids.

Highly Recommended!”

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack In Time For Christmas 2015

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack
LEGO Canada
For Christmas 2015 the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack is one of the hottest selling toys. Released in September the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack video game is compatible with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack has 269 pieces so there are lots of items to be built within pack. I was happy to see that this was just not a screen game but one where the players can use their Lego skills to construct it.
Lego has this to say about the premise of the game:

“When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The LEGO Movie are swept away. To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex and quickly find themselves fighting to save all of LEGO humanity.
Let creativity be the guide to a building and gaming adventure – journey through unexpected worlds and team-up with unlikely allies on the quest to defeat the evil Lord Vortech. Play with different minifigures from different worlds together in one LEGO videogame, and use each other’s vehicles and gadgets in a way never before possible. LEGO Bad Cop driving the DeLorean Time Machine…why not?! The LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjitsu fighting alongside Wonder Woman…yes, please! Get ready to break the rules, because the only rule with LEGO Dimensions is that there are no rules.”

LEGO Dimensions Starter PackLEGO Dimensions Starter PackLEGO Dimensions Starter Pack

With the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack’s three figures players can access the following adventure worlds:

  • Batman – 3-DC Comics
    Gandalf – The Lord of the Rings
    Wyldstyle – The Lego Movie

What is in the Box?

  • LEGO Dimensions videogame
    LEGO Toy Pad
    Bricks to build the LEGO Gateway
    3 LEGO minifigures (Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle)
    LEGO Batmobile vehicle

Pros of the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack

  • Compatible with most game systems
    This and the add-on packs have Lego bricks that need to be constructed
    Can be expanded – 14 adventure worlds to explore
    Allows for multi players
    It is lots of fun

 
 
 

Cons of the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack

  • Must own a game system to be able to play
    Expensive
    Many puzzles cannot be solved without purchasing the character that has the skills

What Others Are Saying About the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack

LEGO Dimensions Starter PackThe LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack has a 4.0 out of 5 star rating at Amazon.com. It is relatively new in the market so this may change quickly. Here is a sampling of some of the reviews:

“My husband is now obsessed with this game. So many different scenarios for gameplay based on the characters you add. Had a blast using batman to fight the wicked witch of the west in Oz!”
“his is one the best LEGO® games i’ve ever played!!! 😀
The package was a bit late, but it’s normal because I live in Indonesia.”
“LOVE this game. I bought this for my son for his birthday as he is a big Lego fan. I enjoy playing with him and think it’s fantastic that you can have so many different characters and worlds. It reminds me of Skylanders (which is also a huge hit in my house). The only complaint I have is that I wished there had been some sort of directions included…even it was just a simple begin game to learn more. As I struggled for a bit trying to figure out what we were supposed to do once we took everything out of the box. Looking forward to all the new packs that will be coming out!”
“Not sure why rated so low, maybe because there are 269 pieces to put together. But definitely fun to do and kids loved it. Very well finished pieces with comprehensive instructions and takes different approach to compete with disney infinity.”
“This is a great game for adults and kids. My wife and I play this together and we love it. Hopefully the packs come down in price but I highly doubt that will happen. Lego is going to make a fortune off of this. I am already going broke buying extra level packs and stuff. If you plan on picking this up just be ready to spend lots more. I think I read somewhere to unlock everything currently it’s around $300. Can’t wait for Dr.Who & Ghostbuster which is the main reason I purchased this.”

More Reviews of the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack

LEGO Dimensions Starter PackThe LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack has a 73% positive rating at Amazon.com. The reviewers’ major complaint who gave it a negative review was that it is very expensive to buy all the add-on packs. It appears that to be able to get the most out of the game it is necessary to own many of these. We recommend you review all the comments to see if this game is suitable for your family.

i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure

i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure for Christmas 2015

i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure
The i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure is flying off the shelves for Christmas 2015. This interactive robot ships from the U.K. He has gained in popularity with his sense of humor. He has a large selection of jokes that mix with his cheeky sounds. With six points of articulation he has many outstanding moves.
By downloading the free app from the Apple App Store or Google Play you can ask him any question that you can imagine. You can test his brainteasers or play games with him. Using speech-text software the i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure understands you.

Pros of the i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure

i-Que Intelligent Robot Action FigureInteractive
Intelligent
Sense of humor
6 Points of articulation
Game playing
Can be action figure when not connect to smart device

Cons of i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure

Need Smart Device to use for most actions
Internet Connection needed
Needs batteries 4 AA (not included)
Not Suitable for children under 5 years old

What Others Are Saying About the i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure

i-Que Intelligent Robot Action FigureSince the i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure is a new toy on the market. There are almost no reviews to be found about it. Here is one that we found on the Amazon.co.uk site.

“On the plus side my son seemed very taken with the robot and doesn’t seem as frustrated as I am at it. It makes a lot of jokes and offers fun facts unprompted and the fact that it pretends to fart sometimes provokes much amusement. It is good at interacting in the game mode on your smart device (via blue tooth) and will also dance to whatever music you have playing when you set the right function. When its switched off it can still be played with safely as the arms and feet are articulated.

Negatives are that the robot will ask you questions and regardless of your response will give the answer afterwards; if you ask it a question it is very hit and miss – about 7 times in 10 it will say it doesn’t know, and whether this is because it is poor quality or if there are problems connecting via blue tooth and then wi-fi to search the internet or if it’s just my smart phone I’m not sure. The noise that the mechanical movement makes often drowns out the robots voice, even when it’s at full volume. It also has trouble understanding the children, mainly I think because they don’t speak slowly and clearly like I do to it and because you have to wait for the red light on the front to be on before you can speak.”

Where to Purchase the i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure

i-Que Intelligent Robot Action FigureThe i-Que Intelligent Robot Action Figure can be order from Amazon.co.uk. If you live in North America and want this action figure for Christmas 2015 order early as shipping times can be long.

INTERACTIVE TRACY ISLAND

Thunderbirds Are Go Interactive Tracy Island Playset

INTERACTIVE TRACY ISLAND
The Interactive Tracy Island is on many of the top toys for Christmas 2015 lists. It is based on the popular U.K. TV series Thunderbirds. With this new smart technology the Interactive Tracy Island playlet allows the owner to take command of the Thunderbird fleet.
INTERACTIVE TRACY ISLANDIf your child would delight in commanding the Thunderbird fleet from the Interactive Tracy Island you had better act quickly as it is much in demand and ships from the U.K.
It is easy to see why it is on some many must have Christmas 2015 lists. In reviewing the comments posted about it with out exception every reviewer said their child loved the Interactive Tracy Island playlet.

Pros of the Interactive Tracy Island

40 Action Rescue and Action Sounds

Cons of the Interactive Tracy Island

 Thunderbirds Are Go 4 Piece Vehicle Super Set Need Thunderbirds Are Go 4 Piece Vehicle Super Set to complete the action

3x AAA & 2x LR44 batteries required (not included).

What Others Are Saying About the Interactive Tracy Island

Since the Interactive Tracy Island ships from the U.K. there are not yet comments at Amazon. However here are some from other sites on the web”

“Bought this for my son’s 6th birthday and it has definitely lived up to his expectations. It is a little tricky to build as plastic has to be bent into position but once built, seems quite robust. The lights and sound make the product even more exciting when used with the vehicles and figures and although buying these on top of the playset makes it an expensive toy, so far it seems like it has been a worthwhile purchase.”

“It’s very good, but do follow the instructions very carefully as it’s a tricky build. Only use the lifts with the tabs, they can be a little temperamental. Younger users might lack the discipline so would need supervision. Worth the effort though, it’s cleverly put together, and the vehicles pack is good value too”
“Bought for our son’s 4th birthday, along with the compatible ships, as he is Thunderbird mad. Went together well and made of good quality plastic, lots of decals to add so a good idea to build before giving to a young child. Our son has spent hours and hours playing with it, he absolutely loves it. Would highly recommend”

“This is a cool toy! Bought for a child’s birthday and they love it. However, parents please note: it requires complicated assembly and application of decals. It is more fiddly than it looks and took much longer than the advised 30-45 minutes assembly time mentioned in the instructions. If you are buying this for a birthday or Christmas present, I highly recommend you assemble it in advance and give it ready assembled. You really don’t want to be doing this on Christmas morning! But when put together it is very nice and effective, works well with the vehicles (not included).”
“This is a well designed toy that has been hampered by small faults, that appear to be the result of trying to meet a price point.

Interactive Tracy IslandThe thought behind the launches on this is brilliant, the designers are obviously fans and really thought about how children would play with it. The concept and execution is spot on. But the mechanism for TB 1 & 2 is essentially a pull back motor you would find in a small toy car and it really gives the impression that it could break at anytime although 2 months on and so far it’s ok. Also the Palm trees at TB2’s runway are so poorly connected you will need to either glue them on or forget them.

The assembly as some people have said can seem tricky BUT i would advise anyone buying this to check out the official instruction video on YouTube. It is much easier to follow and shows you how pieces should be inserted and just how firmly you need to press them in. I have no gaps or misaligned pieces and it is completely down to following the video. It should take and hour to two to build.

“Overall a great toy, you just get the impression as you do with the entire Thunderbird toy range (the figures are an atrocious quality) that the designers have came up with something brilliant then someone in accounting has insisted they compromise parts to meet a pre determined price point and this really lets the toy down.”

Final Thoughts About the Interactive Tracy Island

Interactive Tracy IslandThe Interactive Tracy Island is suitable for children age 3 and up. However the assembly needs adult skills and patience. For Christmas it should be assembled before putting it under the tree. The Thunderbirds Are Go 4 Piece Vehicle Super Set needs to be purchased to go with it.
It appears that children especially boys love this toy. It is flying off the shelves and will soon be sold out so don’t delay.

Where to purchase the Interactive Tracy Island

Interactive Tracy IslandThe Interactive Tracy Island can be purchased from Amazon.co.uk. Need it for Christmas don’t be disappointed order early.

What Are Others saying About the LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet?

LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet The LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet has a 4.2 out of a 5 star rating on Amazon.com. Here are some of the comments by owners:

“What an amazing tool for getting my kid excited about learning. She has been an avid sponge of knowledge from day one, but now it feels a lot more like fun. I even get wrapped up in it and am forced to hand it back over to it’s rightful owner. A great investment in my daughters future. I can’t wait to explore other LeapFrog products!”
“I am in complete awe over this device. I homeschool my youngest and I have implemented the LeapPad Platinum into our school work every day. She is learning and playing with her favorite pups (She loved the Paw Patrol ImagiCards) all while learning how to add, subtract and so much more. My oldest, who is 6, is also in love the LeapPad. Her favorite game is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because it is a little hard and challenging. Can you believe that a 6-year-old is already starting to add and subtract fractions?? Thanks to Leonardo and the game. If you have ever been considering getting a LeapPad, now is the time.

* I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review *”
“am super impressed with this LeapPad! It’s well made, offers a lot of features, and it’s easy to use. She loves it, and even I am having fun with it! The colors are bright, and the graphics are clear. The LeapPad feels very durable in my hands, and I believe it will survive any accidents that may occur. The stylus is attached and easy to hold, even for smaller hands. It can be unlooped and removed if needed. It was easy to set up and we had it running in just a couple of moments after it was charged.”
“My grandkids love this. They both had the older, smaller tablets that they used for years and had gotten to the point where Dad thought they had outgrown them and was considering upgrading to iPad minis. Mom had reservations about that since they use them primarily in the backseat on commutes and there wouldn’t be the direct supervision needed. Ages 6 and 4, they are pretty advanced readers and in keeping with their generation they are fearless and adept when it comes to electronic devices. This Platinum tablet was the perfect solution. The controls on this are as basic as the other tablets so very young users will have no problem. The screen is big and easy to navigate and the two cameras (front and back) are quite good for the purposes of this device. The only awkward button is the volume, it is on the back slightly close to the edge so can be accidentally pressed while game playing. Probably not good if the user is next to a sleeping baby for instance. The tablet is very easy to set up – you will need a computer and Internet – and comes with a nice little variety of activities and games to get started. Best of all the games on the plastic smart card type cartridges for the old Leap Pads work in this one too. Most of the games designed specifically for this one that are found in stores are a bit pricey but The parental feature on this gives you access to an online store with lots of downloadable games prices from $3.99 and up. There are some free demos too. The kids loved this tablet so much that, in addition to the green one I received through Vine in order to review the Paw Patrol game, I had to go out and buy another one so they could use them together. Sharing is great, but now that they each have one they can play turn-based games, without WiFi, just by being next to each other. There is a special secure child web site that they can go to with WiFi but we weren’t able to access it. We think this may be a compatibility problem since my son-in-law has an Apple router. He did have to reset and install the setup on the first tablet twice before it worked properly using a Mac. But the second tablet had absolutely no problems so that may have been a fluke. I deducted on star for the WiFi issue. I hope to be able to get with him and call Leap Frog support to solve this issue very soon. I’ll update my review at that time.”

More Reviews of the LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet

LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning TabletThe LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet has 150 reviews on Amazon.com. Of these reviews an overwhelming 62% are 5 stars. That is not to say that everyone loves the LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet, however we urge you to read them all and make up your own mind if this learning tablet is for you.
In reading the many reviews of this tablet, I am struck with some of the expectations parents have of it. We found that our three-year-old granddaughters were thrilled to have their own tablets. With these LeapFrog LeapPads they could be just like Mommy and Daddy. As they got older they then began to explore the other features of these devices. Even now that they are six and have access to other electronic devices they still use their LeapPads. For the very affordable cost of the LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet I would highly recommend it.

At the moment you can purchase the LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet at Amazon.co.uk. It is currently available at a discount but as this is a most touted item for Christmas 2015 you would be wise to order it early. The closer we get to Christmas the shorter the supply of this tablet will be.
