Teaches math, reading/language arts, science, geography and history
Improves reading fluency, spelling, computation, critical thinking, memory and more
Includes an interactive sampler book of the Quantum Pad library , and It's terrific! The geography games are entirely addictive (for adults too)--you have to race the clock to find as many requested states, capitals, or, in the case of the map of Europe, countries. There's a solar system spread, work with fractions and multiplication, a spelling bee, and more.

FYI About Leap Pads Both the LeapPad and Quantum Pad electronic toys are electronic learning pads that bring special books designed for the systems to interactive life. Children use the attached stylus (a "magic pen") to activate hotspots on the pages of these books. Words and sentences are read aloud with a touch of the pen, maps come to life as children point their pen on different countries, states, and cities; and "paper keyboards" allow kids to compose their own tunes.
Both systems have their own strengths, simply because they target different age groups and the educational possibilities are endless for each group. However, it is interesting to note that the books for both the LeapPad and the Quantum Pad work in either unit. The only significant differences between the two systems is their look and lingo. The Quantum Pad is a sleeker-looking unit that appears less like a toy than the LeapPad, and thus it goes over well with older kids. But most parents know that even preschoolers are attracted to things that don't "look" their age. The point here is that purchasing a Quantum Pad for your kids will likely take care of your 3 year old as well as your more technologically savvy 9 year old, as long as you purchase a book or two that is appropriate for your 3 year old's educational level (which you would likely want to do regardless).
These Leap Pads are VERY expandable for ALL age ranges with different programs and cartridges readily available at very reasonable prices here at Bonanza and elsewhere.
