Excerpt: This Christmas I was absolutely baffled as to what to get my 4 year old sister however thanks to a bit of luck I got this. Like all sensible adults I checked out the product for myself and found it to be rather enjoyable. To enhance the experience I further purchased a game to accompany the gift; Disney Princesses - Worlds of Enchantment.
Excerpt: I replaced my two daughters (4 & 6) leapsters with the new Leapster 2. All the old games work on the new Leapster...agt times they do not recognise them abd all i do is reinsert them and they are fine, this only happens now and again. The only thing is this model does not come with a screen cover, however my daughters didnt use the covers on the old leapsters so i am just going to use some screen protectors.
Excerpt: I bought this for my 4 years old daughter and she totally loves it! We have been away on holidays and it has been very useful for the long journeys and she still loves playing with it at home. Very happy with it although I had my doubts before buying it, having read the reviews about the technical glitches but so far, I have not had any problems at all.
Excerpt: My 3 year old daughter has this and loves it. shell happily play away in the car or in the house and has mastered lots of the games, although there are lots that shes not even tried yet. It gives her challenging fun activities and games that she loves. A great purchase!
Excerpt: I bought this for my 4 year old son after having to return the previous style leapster as it was faulty. I was worried about the position of the pen with my son been left handed but visited toysrus to try and found he had no trouble. I have also emailed leapster direct to discuss my worries and was advised that the new stylus had an extension fitted as standard to ensure it was suitable for both left and right handed people.
Excerpt: my 3 year old loves his leapster 2, i think it is a great buy and im glad its become a well used xmas present, i generally think leapfrog products are well made and durable for even the roughest kid, its just right for his age, there is plenty of time left for dss etc, this is a console designed especially for children. i recommend mr pencil game, its his only game cartridge so far but he has learnt so much about mixing colours/writing letters etc.
Excerpt: It is a good educational game with excellent graphics. The touch screen is a valuable feature encouraging good hand-eye coordination. However, you cannot save your progress in the games. Thus, on swiching off you have to restart the game(s) from the beginning. There is an SD card capability but only upto 256MB. The manufacturer does not recommend any higher capacity. This feature can only be used to download a limited range of games from the internet.
