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 computerTurn the leapster on and connect to the computer When your child's icon pops up click goIn 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:
Our 2 year old son always fight with sister for her leap pad. Now with his own system and interchangeable games the button controls are easier for him than using a stylus. He enjoys learning much more than watching educational videos or playing educational toys. We had to set time limits for both though or they would be inseparable from the technology. Would recommend for for ages 2-6
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very fun. I only wish it had a rechargable battery system instead of AA batteries. It does come with alot of games either but it is still worth the price.
Usually don't buy this type of items
By Busy mom
from Oceanside, Ca
Sturdy, not exensive. Although I did not expect to have to purchase the games and prgrams for the device. I think the ages listed are a bit under rated. My son is 5 and all the ones recommended for 5 year olds seemed pre-school type. However, after searching for an older age we had success. Not many options for 5 and above. My son loves this device and normally does not stick to electronics he prefers to be outdoors. It is super easy to set up and get started. I love that it had the option for batteries.
We apsolutely love this game it has all the same features as older sons leap pad 2. My almost 5 yr old loves it never wants to put it down.
great learning toy
from Annapolis, MD
our grandson loves his new toy and with guidance will use for quite awhile.
My 3 year old likes it
My 3 year old likes it, but it needs to be touch pad I stead of having to use the styles. The stylet had to be right in the middle to select and is hard to use even for an adult. My 3 year old gets frustrated and brings it to me to get it to move at times. So it needs to be easier touch screen.
