Dallas, Texas 02/13/2014 (FINANCIALSTRENDS) – LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:LF) the toymaker best known for the electronic educational toys with high-levels of interaction through multimedia use, has announced quarterly results. With results in the red, the stock price reported further downward slide.
Based out of Emeryville CA, LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:LF), this learning toys maker did have a good festive season, back in December. However, the good cheer has failed to sustain the final quarterly results for the company.
Moreover, management’s guidance declaration for the next fiscal FY 2014 too appeared rather weak. This was the final trigger to set the stock prices of this global toy brand hitting a few tight lows.

LeapFrog’s most popular product launch since has been the LeapPad which registered high sales. The company followed the success of this model with the updated and next version the LeapFrog 2 in 2012. However, its 2013 model which was expected to be better than LeapFrog 2 failed, the LeapFrog Ultra. Besides, competitors with low-cost tablets too flooded the market resulting in the higher priced LeapFrog Ultra not being attractive for buyers. Importantly, the other tablets were made some of the better names in the technology businesses, bringing higher value to the low-cost tablets.
