“From the start, Leo's Pad was a hit…Now that my daughter is 3 years old, I've seen her cognitive behavior improve as well as her problem-solving skills. Even after 10 months of using Leo's Pad, it is still at the top of her list, and she plays nearly every day.” —David R., father of a 3-year-old
“Leo’s Pad is one of the best designed educational apps addressing kids as a whole. It is easy to teach just numbers or letters, it is not easy to build the soft skills into the learning process. This makes Leo’s Pad stand out...”—iGameMom
“The [chapters] develop critical thinking and socio-emotional growth while creatively building from foundational skills, encouraging imagination and problem solving…I hope all students have access to this wonderful learning tool. This is a great investment!”—Alahrie A., educator, principal, and mother of a 6-year-old
Leo’s Pad Enrichment Program for Preschoolers breaks new ground for children’s learning in four ways:
1. RESEARCH-BASED CONTENT
The games are designed by a team of learning scientists and based on a comprehensive early childhood curriculum. Through these games, kids practice a variety of skills essential to early learning, including problem solving, working memory, and even turn taking and delayed gratification!
2. ADAPTIVE GAMEPLAY
The games’ difficulty levels adapt as children play, extending the value of each chapter by providing just the right level of difficulty to motivate learning and keep kids coming back for more.
3. HIGH-QUALITY ANIMATION
Leo’s Pad uses movie-quality animation to bring characters and events to life, for a captivating experience that children love to relive again and again.
4. ENGAGING STORIES
Fun stories and memorable songs from our Emmy-winning creative director improve learning and maximize knowledge retention.
- Chapter 1, “Gally’s Birthday”: This chapter is about being generous with friends and dreaming big.
- Chapter 2, “Rocket to the Stars”: Preschoolers often get frustrated; they’re beginning to have big ideas, but they struggle to make those ideas happen. This chapter highlights three strategies for making big ideas a reality!
- Chapter 3, “Catch that Question!”: This chapter touches on the idea that anything we want to learn how to do requires lots of practice.
- Chapter 4, “A Splashing Good Time”: This chapter models an innovation mindset. The characters find solutions to problems using whatever materials are available.
- Chapter 5, “The Wishing Fish”: In this chapter our characters learn that courage means doing something even though it scares you.
-Chapter 6, “Wish Upon a Fish”: This chapter’s theme is doing the right thing by someone else, even if means giving up something you really want.
-Finale, “A Storybook Ending”: Featuring an original song from Laurie Berkner, the finale introduces preschoolers to the joy of music and the love of reading, with the hopes of inspiring them to create their own stories and music beyond Leo’s Pad!

Wonderful app, free to locked fixed
My daughter loves this app. She plays it all the time. And I feel it's a wonderful for helping engage her brain instead of staring mindlessly at the iPad. Well, we got the full app for free and then after an update, lost all the content. My daughter was heartbroken. I spent a while emailing back and forth with customer service trying to figure it out. I had created a user account but it was not working and unlocking the chapters. I went 6 months without contacting them again and was just getting ready to delete the app so that I could stop hearing my daughter cry about not being able to move on in the game. I contacted them one more time. And finally got the help I needed. I now have it all unlocked.
If you had the free version, you have to log out and then log back in. The BUY buttons should now be replaced with locks. You click on the lock and click the grey unlock button. This was not my problem; I was using the wrong log in name.
We love this app - it is beautiful, meaningful, and engaging. A really great app to work with as a family because it inspires curiosity in children. Was put off at first by some of the more fantastical elements (my son wanted to make a rocket building machine like Leo... One that could manufacture a functional rocket in seconds) but ultimately it did open a great discussion about real versus imaginary. Would love to see more real science concepts incorporated into future appisodes; the mixing machine concepts, for example, were really great because we could turn around and create a solution in our kitchen right after playing the game. I think the very best part of the program though is the music. The messages in the songs are perfect, and the songs are pleasant even after the millionth time... Our son sings them regularly, particularly when he gets stuck in an activity or when he is building. "...you are an inventor, with all of the tools you need..."
Great App for Preschoolers!
This is a really fun and unique app! As a Preschool Special Ed teacher and a mom of a preschooler I can definitely say this app is worth purchasing. My son started playing this app when he was 2, he is 4 1/2 now and still requests to play it! It covers so many different educational areas with such fun and engaging characters! The support staff for trouble shooting are also very kind and helpful :) love it!
