VTech and Leapfrog Merger
The majority of today's children have had smartphones, iPads, and other mobile devices in the palms of their hands before they've uttered their first words. Parents pop open an app with something to just entertain the child. A coloring app, a princess app, etc., pretty much anything to keep the child busy. However, there'd are usually no actual educational value to these apps. In fact, this article notes that, "according to YouthBeat data in 2014, 68 per cent of children ages 6 to 13 have a tablet in the home with 32 per cent personally owning their tablet. 83 per cent of children in that same age range use/download apps." Leapfrog, a children's educational app, has been out for years, teaching kids to read, write, and imagine. Now Leapfrog is making a decision to merge with electronics company Vtech to bring together children's learning and entertainment.
