Just last month, one of those Fools, TMFCQuader, offered some insight into the LeapFrog bull case for our community:

This is a company that has proven time and time again ... when you align your goals on a corporate level to precisely what you want to produce, then your product will be precisely that.

Reading their Annual Report 2012, you can tell that their entire focus is geared toward making children happy educationally, and doing so with a product that stands up to them!

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, LeapFrog may not be your top choice.
