If you havemultiple children this helps to cut down on the cost of downloads. Cartridges can also be sharedbetween devices.Art Studio is a popular application, and parents really like that it is included with the LeapPad. Thecamera is a nice built-in feature, but it is lower resolution that regular cameras. Some parents havereported that their children are disappointed with the quality of the images that the camera takes.In any event, the camera and Art Studio offer a great outlet for creativity.Overall, parents tend to like the LeapPad because it keeps their kids entertained, is durable, andall the games are built with learning in mind.User Reviews: ConsAs with any electronic device, it can break if it is misused or mistreated. Many users haverecommended the LeapPad Case to keep it protected when it is not in use. The LeapPad Gel Skincreates a barrier between your child and the device that can protect it while it is being used.Headphones are also a good add-on if your child plays the LeapPad while you are in a publicspace or while traveling. Unfortunately, all of these extras are sold separately.Downloadable games and applications are all an extra expense, and some do not offer a goodvalue for the price. One user complained that after spending $7.50 on a train game her daughterbeat it in just 20 minutes. The system can be slow, and the batteries get used up quickly. You willneed to keep AA batteries in stock, and if your child plays the device frequently you will need tokeep replacing them, which is another additional expense.==== ====For More Information About LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet Click here!!http://amzn.to/y8jct3==== ====
