    When my son was just shy of 3 years old, I bought him the original Leapster and I cannot tell you how much he has played, laughed and learned with this device! Last month, we received a top secret gaming system that my 5 year old is madly in love with; the new LeapFrog Leapster Explorer that is due to release in September.

    * Right handed or Left handed? This might sound weird from anyone that doesn't have a left handed child, but the first thing that I noticed about the new Leapster Explorer is that it has the ability to be used by a right handed child or a left handed child – right away. On the Leapster 2, the string was on the right side, for a right handed child. With the Leapster Explorer, the pen is able to be looped around either side, for either (left or right) handed child. Score! Great change, LeapFrog!
    * Size & weight - I also noticed that the size was a bit smaller, not as bulky and the weight seemed lighter than the Leapster2. This is a plus, especially when I am toting this along in my purse for the kids when we travel.
    * Performance - The Leapster Explorer is fast! The screen resolution is crisp, memory is larger and the processor is larger, hence the faster performance.
    * Touchscreen – From my use with the Leapster Explorer, compared to the Leapster2, I think the touchscreen is easier to use. It's more sensitive, which is a good thing.
    * Games – My Son's favorite game, so far, is Penguins of Madagascar. There are over 40 games available, and even more fun to download from the parents' computer such as e-books and learning.
    * Upgrades - There are so many things that you can buy extra to add on to the Leapster Explorer like a camera and many more additions!
    Overall: we LOVE everything new about the LeapFrog Leapster Explorer! The price will be at just under $70.00 and the games are right around $25.00 each. With as much as my 5 year old has played his Leapster2 in the last 2 1/2 years, I can totally see the upcoming years of fun that he will have with the Explorer! The Leapster2 has a new owner, my 2 ½ year old… and she is one happy girl!

    I just returned our Leapster Explorer (with all the games and accessories) for a reason you may not have considered. The device comes with pre-installed games. One is a Pet Society-like game in which the user has pets to care for. Although this doesn't seem like a bad thing, every time my son turned on the Leapster and clicked on the pet game, it would tell him to connect to the computer and buy shampoo or food or whatever. Because it was located on the start-up page, there is no avoiding the game. Imagine how frustrating it is to have a 4-year-old repeatedly ask to connect to the computer because the game doesn't work. Imagine the frustration for the child to have a game that he cannot play. (Sarcasm: nice birthday present, Mom and Dad.) Does LeapFrog think this is appropriate for 4- to 9-year-olds to understand? As a grown-up, I can "X" out of pop-up ads and move on. A young child cannot. I may consider down-grading to the Leapster 2. But then again, I am still pretty irritated and may not buy anything from them. He can wait for a Nintendo.

        I bought this for my daughter 3 years ago and it was the best gift I ever bought her. She reads, does math, puzzles, spelling words, and has fun. It keeps her occupied for hours. She loves it and it is great for long car trips.

            My son got this for his birthday a year and a half ago from his Grammy. He loved it so much and I loved how he was learning and engaged. The only downside was after a little less then a year to a year later. It was broke so for the last 9 months or so he has been without and it is a bummer. I want to buy this one again just because we already have all the accessories that go with it. The games are amazing and is an awesome system. Can not wait to get a new one.

                My daughter received this for Christmas two years ago when she was four. She is now six and still plays it regularly. Great games that have grown with her. Awesome for travel. This has been a wonderful product and we are happy to see more games on her wish list again this year! It is a great gift to keep adding to. She started out with a few games and now has accumulated a wide selection. Leapster Explorer and the explorer gs are excellent products! I would definitely recommend them!

                    I gave each of my grandsons (2 and 4 years old) a Leapster 2 system, charger, case, and several games. They loved them. One of the system's sound crashed. They aren't selling that system any more so I replaced it with a Leapster Explorer. It has all the bells and whistles that make it child-user friendly and has upgraded the graphics which justifies buying new cartridges. They love it! The camera attachment is terrific, the carrying case hold 3 cartridges :), and the cartridges offer many of the old games they loved and many more which are age appropriate. Thank you for upgrading and fixing the sound issue. They love it!

                        We had purchased a Leapster2 for our grandson the first Christmas that it came out....when we found out that the game was being discontinued and that we couldn't buy any more games for it, we purchased a Leapster Explorer for him. He loves it! At the age of 3 he was able to play the Leapster2 with very little problems and at the age of 4 the Leapster Explorer was no problem for him to play. I love the fact that the games have a "voice" that tells them what they need to do. His father got him a Nintendo DS and he gets frustrated because you need to be able to read most of the prompts....with the Leapsters he listens and knows what he has to do next. Another thing we were thrilled with is....his Leapster2 broke, and to my surprise its still available for purchase on this site....Thank you!

                                Greatest present we could have chosen for our 3 year old grandaughter. She immediately started using it! It arrived on the day of her birthday in the middle of her birthday party. She tore open the box and wanted to play right then. She uses it every day. It is a great "learning to read" tool. Her skills are improving every day and she has so much fun! It is a quality toy. Thanks Leapster!

                                        So glad we invested in this for our son. It is amazing all the features it has and all the products available for it. Our son loves it and loves working online with it as well. Teaching him so much regarding Science, Math, English, what an awesome way to learn at his age. This is also teaching him to be responsible with electronics as well. Thumbs Up for LeapFrog on this item!!

His mom will be homeschooling him and is looking forward to the combination of learning and fun experiences that the Explorer will provide.
