Cases are now available for the new LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra 7" tablet for children. The LeapPad Ultra is a high-end kids educational tablet for children aged around 4-9.
The Ultra tablet itself does have a rugged build with a tough bumper frame so it doesn't need placing in a plastic protective case as you would need to for a regular tablet. (We may get gel covers for grip and decals for decoration as we have for other models though.)
The LeapPad Ultra case concentrates on protecting the tablet when it's not in use, transporting it around and keeping the accessories stored neatly together so they are available when needed and don't get lost.
This tablet has a different form factor to the previous LeapPad models so you'll need the case that's specific to this model.
Note that the Ultra has a 7" screen measured across the diagonal, it then has the protective frame and D-pad controller around it so the tablet is quite a bit larger than other 7" tablets so a normal 7" case won't fit it (though a larger tablet case would.)
The official case for the LeapPad Ultra has some useful design features in addition to fitting the tablet perfectly, having padding in just the right places and matching in terms of color.

The case has a useful wrist-strap to make it less likely that kids will drop their tablet.
It also has room inside to store up to six cartridges. The LeapPad Ultra has a cartridge slot and can work with physical cartridges or digital downloads. We prefer the digital downloads generally but sometime you can find the cartridges on offer at a good price and then we add to our collection.
There's also storage space for an extra stylus - the main stylus stores inside the tablet itself.
The case comes in gorgeous frog green or a purple and violet design to match the two color options of the LeapPad Ultra itself. A cool case does seem to encourage kids to put their tablet away neatly after use and stay organised.
