Judge me if you want, but I got this tablet for my youngest son for his 4th birthday. He LOVES it! I am very glad I got it for him. It is a real tablet with LeapFrog flair (LeapFrog apps & parental controls). We love that it came with the green rubber bumper case and 20 apps. The value of those alone makes this a great buy. The interactive home screen is a nice addition to this tablet; my son loves adding and removing "stickers" to his little town and checking the mailbox for the word of the day. I love that, in addition to the apps, my son can click on Leap Search to browse the websites that I have allowed such as PBS Kids. The leapfrog apps that come with the Epic are very fun, educational, and entertaining. You can add more apps from the LeapFrog App Center and if you want, you can download the Amazon Play Store to the Epic and download those apps as well. My son loves that I was able to download the Netflix app for him that way. In addition to the app games I have installed, my son loves to check the clock app and tell me what time it is, checking the weather app for our areas’ real-time forecast, and listening to his music. He also enjoys taking videos and pictures of everything with his front and back cameras and recording himself singing and saying silly things with his voice recorder. It takes really good pictures and you can edit them just like you could on a cell phone. Speaking of cell phones, this Epic tablet has a built in rechargeable battery and takes the same charger as my cell phone. It says that this tablet is for ages 3-9 years old, but as the child gets older, you can give them more and more access to the internet. They could surf the web with no restrictions if you so allowed. Therefore, it can be used well beyond 9 years old. If you are in the market for a tablet for your young child, I highly recommend buying this LeapFrog Epic Tablet.
