Recently my oldest son, 5 years old, received the new LeapPad from LeapFrog to review for free along with Disney Pixar Cars 2. The great thing about this learning tablet is that it takes the same cartridges as our Leapster Explorer. So when one boy isn't playing Disney Pixar Cars 2 on the LeapPad, he's playing it on the Leapster Explorer.

About the Game: In Disney Pixar Cars 2, children will join Mater and Lightening McQueen in a global race-turned-espionage tale. Along the way, children will practice measurements, problem-solving, graphs, sequencing and patterns.

I had to pry the game out of my son's hands to learn more about it to share with you. So that said, you can be sure he loved it on the LeapPad. And when he wasn't playing with Cars 2 on the LeapPad, my 4 year old was playing with it on the Leapster Explorer. But once I got my hands on it, I chose to play it on the LeapPad to share my thoughts with you.

From the Main Menu of the game there are 5 places to visit:

Adventure Mode: You drive around Radiator Springs finding collectibles. You can meet characters along the way to talk too. It lets you know when you can talk or stop somewhere. There are activities along the way, like customizing cars or keep Mater disguised using number sequencing. As you complete activities you can get badges.

Activity Mode: There looks like there are eight activities in this mode - but two of ours were locked by the time I started playing. Activities in this mode include Airport Chase (matching, fine motor skills), Finn's Photo Mission (graphing), Secret Decoder (matching), Finn's Jump (fine motor skills, tracking), Oil Rig Chase (matching, reading signs, fine motor skills), Disguise Device (number sequencing).

Salvage Yard: Where collectibles from Radiator Springs adventure mode are stored.

Badges: The different badges earned.

Micromods: I haven't ever used micromods. You download them LeapWorld to change or enhance the game somehow. It could be new game music, character upgrades, game modes or moves, etc.

The only thing I was disappointed in was the packaging. I miss having a way to easily organize my games. I kept all previous Leapster Explorer Games in their boxes on a shelf, so the boys can easily find what they are looking for and put their games back. The new packaging has to be ripped apart to remove the game, leaving you with a loose game to easily misplace.

That is everything I discovered! Overall the game is pretty cute and I am impressed with the skills it's teaching. Cartridge games for Leapster Explorer and LeapPad usually retail for $24.99. If you find them less, it's a bargain.

I downloaded this on our 4-year old son's LeapPad2 because of his love for Disney's Cars. The game itself is very boring with limited time your child is actually doing anything. Your child plays as Mater driving around Radiator Springs and clicking to speak to the characters; however, most characters do nothing. For example, Lightning McQueen says something to the nature of "What's up Buddy" and you move on. His line is always the same no matter where you run into him. Occassional Mater runs into an unknown character or little known character like the van that visited Radiator Springs in Cars 1 and he cuts over to a mission with Finn McMissile for a few minutes. The missions with Finn are where the game play actually comes in. This is where I believe it is not age appropriate. The first mission is avoiding Grem from shooting Finn and clicking on different weapons to stop Grem. It seems confusing to my son being 4. He clicks on the pictures it asks him to but I'm not sure he really understands he is in a chase and does not avoid Grem shooting him. Another mission has Finn using a grappling hook to jump to a ship and you need to determine the length of rope you need to make it. Again, I think this is beyond a 4 year old's complete comprehension. I would list the age on this as age 5-7. Overall I would look elsewhere and not be sold on the Cars brand.

Shooting in a LeapFrog Game???

By LeapFrogMomz

from Riverview, FL

Comments about LeapFrog Explorer Learning Game - Disney Pixar Cars 2:

I was extremely disappointed in this purchase and wish I could get my money back. In the first task in story mode your child has to help Mater to get away from a bad guy car who is shooting bullets at him with a gun! SERIOUSLY??? In an educational game designed for a 4 year old. We don't play with guns in our home and we don't let our children play traditional video games because we don't want them playing violet video games. I can not believe that this game had shooting and guns in it. I removed it immediately from his LeapPad. Couldn't the car just chase them without the shooting??? So unnecessary and now I am out a whole purchase! I wish there was something in the description warning parents before they made their purchase so that they could make a sound parenting decision based on the values of their home and the maturity of their child.

      My daughter loved the game when she first started playing it. Yet I wished there were more levels and adventures available. She was able to basically beat it in a day.

          It's a great game once I was able to figure it out. My son is four yrs old and he was getting frustrated because he didn't know how to unlock the games. He is young and doesn't have a lot of patient. In order for him to enjoy the games we need to play together. Right now he is still learning how to play the games. I actually ended up buy easier games so that he doesn't get upset. I started buy games for ages 3-5. That seems to help him feel good and not be intimadated to play the games.

                          My 4 year old son thinks this game is fun but unlike some other LeapPad games, it doesn't hold his attention for more than 10 minutes at a time. There aren't many mini games included and they really don't offer much in the way of repeated play. It's fine, but I wouldn't go out of my way to suggest a friend buy it for their child.
