    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.

                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.

                                        I purchased this product for my grandchildren. They love it! There are so many apps available that are educational now. I purchased videos and games for it as well. It keeps them busy and most games are educational which is important to us because we are a family of teachers. My youngest granddaughter does better with this game system than the iPad because she seems to constantly shut the games down on the iPad.
