I love this item. We just gave this to our son for his 4th birthday and he loves it. He really likes the pet pad game and drawing the letters to make the monkey do different things. He laughs at all of them. I love that he is learning while playing and I will sit with him and go through the games with him. It didn't take him very long to figure out how to use it either. My parents gave him the Mr. Pencil game and he seems to like that pretty well too. The built in camera is great. He has been taking pictures like crazy and having fun drawing on them.

One of the problems I had was when I first downloaded the apps the camera stopped working so I found out from someone else's review on another site how to fix it. I guess it's a common problem. If you have the problem you just:

Click on the leapfrog icon on your computer
Turn the leapster on and connect to the computer
When your child's icon pops up click go
In the upper right corner click on settings and then repair.

Other then that and the batteries not lasting it's a great product and learning tool. I will be investing in rechargeable batteries. The other suggestion I have is that the battery compartment can be hard to open so follow the instructions on that and use both thumbs and press downward. I struggled with it until I read that on the directions.

Overall though we love it.

My children own tons of LeapFrog toys and games. We love that LeapFrog is educational but fun! That being said, we were really excited when Great Grandma bought our boys LeapFrog Leapsters for Christmas. We knew being a previous owner of the LeapPad 1, set can take a long time in the eyes of a little one... so we took the time to set up the toy in advance. WELL, it took up nearly 30 minutes to get the battery door off the back of the unit. I tried. My husband tried. It was ridiculous. We pulled and tugged. Nothing. It wasn't until we got a mini pocket knife keychain thing-a-ma-jig and slipped the knife straight down but lined up with the arrows were we able to get the doors open. I am glad that we took the time on Christmas Eve to play with this because our kids would have been gravely disappointed otherwise had they had to wait. Besides the door, I know the product will be worthwhile. I'll be sure to update my review if my opinion should change! LeapFrog, please fix the door!!! (And by the way, we did have two units so I don't think it was a defective product unless I was lucky enough to get two of them!)

DO NOT BUY THIS FOR YOUR CHILDREN!

By Vivi222

from New York, NY

Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

I bought this for my child and almost right after we opened it and started to use it, it started displaying and saying provocative things that I myself have never said around her. I personally used to use the older version of this product, as I am a teen mom, and I enjoyed those much more than I watched my child attempt to enjoy this one. I vouch for all parents out there when I say "BRING THE ORIGINAL LEAPFROGS BACK!!!"

      Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

      My four year old is loving it. She feels very big, and like her older brothers playing their DS games. The screen size is fine. The games seem like mini apps, that you do over and over. I'd like to find games that have more of a ongoing type of story mode to them. Invest in rechargeable batteries!

            I love buying educational toys for my son. So this product was perfect. He sees his older cousins playing video games, so of course he wants to play too. So this leapster was perfect because it looks like a portable game console and he is able to learn on the go.

                My son loves this but the batteries diminish quickly. I have the rechargeable AA's in it but this is very frustrating to myself and especially my son, having to recharge so often. It needs a charging cord that plugs in to the wall, just like a tablet or phone. I wouldn't buy this again.
