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!)

    Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

    My older son had a leap pad it is time my 4yo twins can start playing with it. We needed a second device to play with. The leapster explorer Gs worked out great. I love that it uses all the same games as the leap pad so now both boys can play at the same time and their big brother loves helping them out. I like that all three kids can have his own sign In and can customize their screens and I can track their learning progress.

    fantastic educational game

    Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

    I have a 4 year old son who is very electronically advanced and we are always trying to find educational games to challenge him. This is a game that will be able to grow with him since there is access to a wide variety of games. The games are a bit pricey though. It would be nice to be able to try a game prior to purchase because of the pricing.

      My son has been using the Leapster Explorer non-stop since he got it a few weeks ago. It came with 3 games (if I remember right) and we bought 2 more. He is learning and doesn't even realize it. :)

          My 4 year old wanted to take his LeaPad everywhere he goes, so we purchased the Leapster and now he has a new game to travel with. It is perfect in size and sometimes I see him trying to play both games at the same time. We are very satisfied with this new addition to our LeapFrog inventory. We can't leave the house without him looking for his LeaPad/Leapster and of course his headphones. Hours of play great investment. He has no idea he is learning while having fun.

            Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

            I honestly do not know why this toy has so many great reviews. We have gone through three of these because something went wrong every time!! The touch screen was off one of the times, and I have heard others say the same happened with theirs. So I took it back and got another one. Now it has completely quit and won't even come on. My son has not even played with it that much and he's had it a couple of years, but I would not expect it to quit in just a couple of years. This is just too much money to spend for it to quit in no time. I am highly disappointed because this is A LOT of money wasted for us when you add up all the games that are now useless. So no, I would not recommend this, as many times as ours has gone wrong.
