for all you mommies that have kids with Leap pad 2. I want to buy my daughter a lead pad 2 for christmas but she wont be 3 until march and thats the recommend age. is it to advanced for her at 2? should I wait until she is 3? will she enjoy it more? I just dont want to spend $100 on it if she wont even be able to play it. thanks!

We got DS a LeapPad when he was 2, and he could handle it very well. It would depend on the child, I would never give my 3 year old niece one- she is very rough and not patient at all.
I would say if she has decent understanding of cell phone games like angry birds, is patient enough to deal with a game that can last upwards of 10 minutes, and has good finger dexterity, it would work for her.

do you have a smart phone and does she know how to use it? my girls have innotabs, 3 and 4, and they both are VERY good with them.

My son was almost 3 last Christmas and I bought him a Kindle Fire. He loves it.

Get the innotab 2...leap [ads suck IMO...My kids wont look at any of those loeap pad things at all. But dd just turned 4 has had a innotab since 2 and loves it alot...not as much as her ipad but she still plays it everyday. lol



But with all that said she should be able to use one.

Both my 4 1/2 yr old and 2 yr old LOVE their Leap Pads. They are both on the Pre-K level but my son has a few games that are more advanced than my daughter's. Between the 2 of them they have 14 games and a whole collection of Apps to choose from so there's a lot of variety. They're pretty tough games, too. My kids are NOT gentle and have yet to damage them.

Damnnnn that sucks. Yea I just found out that they are doing ref checks for my housing for help with my rent I'm so excited because that means I'll have a little extra money for christmas instead of the 150 that Iw as only planning on having. :)

awww yea I'm just going off of my income and not off of the chance that I get my back child support or any of that. So I'm pretty stoked. The kids will probably now get 150 at least each. :)
