The LeapPad Platinum is an unabashedly child-specific tablet that caters to the specific educational needs and desires of young children. This tablet doesn't try or look to rival some of the popular and mainstream svelte tablets, but features design cues that are intended first and foremost for children.
The tablet has a chunky design and has a large bezel, making it highly sturdy. It even has features like a rubber bumper that makes it perfectly proof to the kinds of abuse that children throw at them. This will surely encourage parents worried that their kids will break their tablets in no time and require new ones.
The tablet is powered by a proprietary operating system and is compatible with apps and games put together by LeapFrog. This allows parents to curate their children's experience and keep unsavory apps and games out of their grasp.
As tablet users become younger and younger, it's important to cater to them and that's precisely what the LeapPad Platinum does.
