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!)

Great system for kids

By Kolegirl

from Sandy springs, GA

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Install

Cons

  • Lacks Adjustability

Best Uses

    Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

    I got this for my 3 year old child who loves to play games on the IPad. I wanted to get a system where she is only playing educational games. The great thing about this game is it does not use internet so she can use it anyway and she is safe from the many inappropriate things on the Internet. The one down size is it is battery operated but you can by a separate rechargeable battery pack. Also to buy games you have to hook it up to a computer.

    Fun Handheld Learning

    By JM the stay at home mom

    from Colorado

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

    My kids love their Leapsters! They are such a user friendly, safe gaming system. My kids love the camera and video. I like how it can be hooked up to the computer, and games can be purchased and downloaded online. That way there's no physical cartridge to possibly get lost. Sometimes the screen needs to be reset if the stylus isn't interacting with it correctly, but it's very simple to fix and the online help to walk you through it is very easy. I'm also impressed at the durability of the Leapsters. This is the third Leapsters I've purchased, and it's a birthday gift for my youngest child. His two older sisters have had theirs for over a year, and they're still working great!

    Good apps but goes through batteries

    By Frustrated Dad

    from Woodbridge, VA

    Pros

    • Games and Apps are good

    Cons

    • Games and Apps are pricey
    • Goes through batteries very quickly

    Best Uses

    • Educate children

    Comments about LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer - Green:

    Like the product but it goes through batteries. Using the system and the games/apps available are good for young children. System did not include a 9v adapter in the box, will not work with 9v adapter from an older Leapster model, and goes through AA batteries like crazy. The game/app cartridges are good but somewhat pricey. Also, ensure games state for the Leapster GS (may also state for LeapPad tablets); cartridges for LeapReader do not work with the Leapster GS.
