So off I went to buy leapster. I was thrilled I opened the box. NO SCREWS. It came right out. it turned on and its having me count, do my abc's learning money (spongebob cartridge) I thought I was going to have a hard time choosing. No way leapster is my gift to the kids. They will love it. There are more cartridges in color, like Dora and a baseball one and how to write. Leap frog explains everything you need to do. It has an AC adaptor if you want to buy one. You can put headphones in. The screen has adjustment. Pixter does not and its too light. Hard to see the object. Okay so if you hawing and hemming let my goof be your blessing! Its great.

My children ages three and four already own just about every Leap Frog toy out there. I decided to purchase the Leapster for Christmas, because they have started to get into video and computer gaming and also enjoy their Leap Pad very much. I test ran the Leapster yesterday and I was really impressed. The color monitor turned out bigger than expected and the graphics are great. Everything is easily accessible thanks to the touch screen. The whole concept behind the product is definitely very similar to all the other Leap Frog items. The same voices and characters as in the Leap Pad books are used. Overall, the system is more than worth the money. I already ordered additional cartridges (Dora, Kindergarten) and can't wait until more will be available. Happy Holidays!

By Shauna Sheridan (Pleasant Grove, UT USA)I really like the leapster, and my favorite thing is that I can say to my kids its your night with the leapster the sooner you get in bed the sooner you get to play, and they will climb in bed at 7:00 and play till 8:30-9 until I say lights out and make them turn it off. And they all keep track of whose night it is to play. I also love that my little girl is really getting good control of the pencil (hand eye cordination) and that she is just barely 4 and is already putting words together. I love it.

Leapfrog Leapster Learning Game System

Product Features

* Portable interactive system with action-packed games focused on learning essentials for preschool to fourth grade
* Comes with 2 games built in.
* Expandable with large library of games
* Teaches phonics, spelling, math, art, music and more

Aimed at 4- to 10-year-olds, the 6-by-4-inch Leapster is sized for little hands and comfortably shaped with safe, rounded edges. The 2-1/4-inch touch screen is ample for most of the gaming activities; although a little cluttered when used for the art and drawing modules. Buttons are suitably placed on either side of the unit for thumb-operated control.

The right side features "A" and "B" buttons for selecting settings and answers while the left has a multi-directional gamepad for game play. A pen is also attached for drawing, selecting tools and settings, and dragging and placing objects. The 3-inch backlit display makes games visible in the dark (although parents will prefer that the Leapster is shut off at bedtime) and the animated graphics, while not completely state-of-the-art are well done and suitable for this age range.

Here is one handheld gaming system that both parents and kids will be able to agree upon. The Leapster Learning Game System takes the brain-building principles that Leapfrog laid out in its earlier electronic learning devices (which have an interactive book format) and applies them to a video-game format. Leapster draws kids in with familiar video game templates—all of which have a secret weapon: a built-in learning component. LeapFrog hopes that kids will become so engaged in the gaming aspects and familiar television and movie characters offered by this toy that they won’t even notice that they’re learning and reinforcing valuable reading, math, and language skills.

Merchant Comments

The Leapster Learning Game System takes the brain-building principles that Leapfrog laid out in its earlier electronic learning devices (which have an interactive book format) and applies them to a video-game format.

As with the manufacturer’s LeapPad products, the Leapster does require the purchase of additional cartridges to expand its capabilities. Kids can choose titles with their favorite characters to play educational games with. The star-studded list of celebrity narrators includes TV personalities, such as SpongeBob Squarepants, Thomas the Tank Engine, and Dora the Explorer; and movie stars, such as Nemo, Cinderella, Ariel (The Little Mermaid), and Batman. Leapfrog’s own cartoon star, Tad, is narrates a few as well. While stocking up on the extra software titles can get expensive, it also gives parents some control and input on which characters they’d like their kids to learn from. And, characters for these titles are appropriately matched to the maturity of the targeted grade level (pre-K through 4th grade).

What It Teaches:

* Letters * Phonics * Rhyming * Spelling * Numbers * Counting * Addition * Subtraction * Art * Music
