LeapFrog brings Aardman's Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep to LeapPad

A Grand Day Out and A Close Shave will join Shaun the Sheep's Off the Baa in the content library.

LeapFrog has partnered with Aardman Animations to bring new video content featuring iconic characters Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep to its LeapPad tablet family.

A Grand Day Out and A Close Shave will join Shaun the Sheep's Off the Baa, Saturday Night Shaun and Shape Up with Shaun in the content library.

The content will be available on LeapPad 2, LeapPad Power and LeapPad Ultra.

The new content joins a library now consisting of over 500 interactive educational games, creativity apps, eBooks, video, music and more.   

Chris Spalding, senior vice president and managing director EMEA, said: "At LeapFrog, we pride ourselves on delivering some of the biggest names in children's entertainment and constantly strive to bring the most popular and loveable characters to life via our innovative technology.

"Our agreement with Aardman will see us introduce some iconic new faces to our LeapFrog video content library.

"These exciting characters have such a rich heritage and following, we are in no doubt they will be a hit with parents just as much as with children."

Head of Aardman rights and brand development, Sean Clarke, added: "We are constantly looking for new platforms for consumers to enjoy our content, and we are very excited about this new opportunity offered by LeapFrog to allow children to watch and enjoy our work on the LeapFrog."
