Leappad Bonus App - Get ALL 5 offered at signup for FREE - PLUS: FREE eBook code
App 1 - Pet Pad
App 2 - Story Studio
App 3 - Art Studio
App 4 - Choose an App
You are only suppose to get 1 for App 4 but I was able to get all of them for free.
1) Select the first app on the list and click download
2) A pop up will come up and only partially cover the screen asking you to go to the App Center. DO NOT CLICK THIS!
3) In the background, you will be able to click on the next app on the left side of the screen and the Download button on the bottom right.
4) You will see the Downloading on the status bar on the top of the screen with the app names. Once complete, go to the next step
4) Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have all the apps
There are 2 eBooks, 2 games and 1 video. These are all roughly $7.50 each. They all installed and were playable without issue. That's nearly $30 worth of apps for free.
eBook: Ozzie and Mack
eBook: T-Rex's Might Roar
Game: Sugar Bugs
Game: Jewel Train
Video: Sing-Along Read-Along
Hope this helps anyone that hasn't yet set their kid's leappad up.
Also, here is the code for the Bonus eBook from Leap School Reading:
eBook: The Book of Super Awesome Stuff: 5813-1140-1518-1413
Game: Alphabet Stew (as of 12/26: Still works): http://slickdeals.net/f/2559729-Free-leapster-leaplet-bonus-code?v=1
It looks like it the bonus apps off the Manuals can be used more than once so have at it! Also, please add any Bonus app codes you may have to the WIKI. We can make this the one stop shop for all FREE apps.
You must connect it to the computer where you set it up with the LeapConnect and then click 'Settings' on the top right corner and there is a reset button. Process takes about 10 minutes and will erase all data and games on LeapPad.
Update 12/26 4:08pm:
Getting mixed responses on the reset to download again. Treat this as YMMV
Update 12/26 5:15pm:
Multiple reports say this does not work to reset and redownload.
If connecting for the first time, click "Skip For Now" when prompted to download your free app. You can still setup the LeapPad the rest of the way, and then come back later to perform the download trick in this thread. Confirmed that this does work, since I didnt see this thread until a day late (try giving a 4 yr old one of these for Xmas and not be asked to set it up immediately!)
