      I love this product! My daughter is 5 and normally loves the Wii, or iPod games, I wasn't sure if she would like this, but she does. She plays all the time, batteries last for a long time (longer than I expected, considering some other reviews) The games are very educational, and I can follow her progress when I plug it in. I can also changed her level of learning on the hand held itself to give her more challenges, goes from pre-k to 8th grade (depends on the game) I would definatly recommend this to other moms.

      When you start the system is asks you to connect to a computer EVERY TIME. Very annoying. The included pets game asks children (parents) to buy more food for their pet. Just what every parent wants a product that asks you to spend more money. From time to time the system will freeze. Our last freeze resulted in the touch screen not working (randomly...was not dropped or anything.) After shutting the system off waiting and turning it back on 3 times, I had no results. 2 days later it randomly started working again. I have had this product for 8 months and we are very careful with it. My kids love the system, but with it threatening not to work and only a 90 day warranty, I will not be investing any more money into games or accessories for it.

          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!

                              I love the explorer for my children my 4 year old son got one for Christmas and my 2 year old daughter did so well with it and was learning so much we had to get her one as well so they would fight. It's a fun and educational toy. They love it as much as I do! Highly suggest it for anyone!

                                  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.
