    Vast improvement from the Leapster Explorer

    Customer review by MarinoBambinos

    5.0 stars by MarinoBambinos

    I'm a big LeapFrog fan because I have seen both of my children learn from their products. My 4.5 year old daughter has a Leapster Explorer that she received last Christmas and she really enjoys playing with it. As a blogger, I had the opportunity to test out the Leapster GS and I was highly impressed with its vast improvements from the Leapster Explorer. The built in camera, video recorder, and 2 GB of internal memory are what make the Leapster GS a stand-out product. My daughter feels like she now has her own camera and video recorder (just like mama!), and can easily take photos and video on her own. The Leapster GS comes with free game apps, including her favorite one called "Escape of the Sillies". My daughter loves this app because she is able to become a silly monster character, by adding her own picture and recording her voice in the "silly lab". The game cultivates math skills, while face-morphing technology entertains and captures her interest as she is literally the face (and voice) of all the characters. I like the fact that the device is compatible with the Leapster Explorer game cartridges, so she able to enjoy all of her previously owned games on her new device. I also like the size and sleek design of the device because it is so easy for her little hands to manipulate and small enough to tuck into my purse. LeapFrog produced another great product that strengthens math, science, reading and logic skills all while having fun. I highly recommend this product for the parent who wants screen time to be educational.

    My soon to be 5 year old daughter absolutely LOVES the new LeapsterGS. She also owns a LeapPad and the new LeapsterGS has a lot of the same great features of the LeapPad (Built in camera/video, motion-based play, touch screen, tons of great educational games and apps) for less money. If you're looking for a great, educational gaming system for a great price, I would definitely recommend the LeapsterGS. LeapFrog was gracious enough to send my daughter her LeapsterGS free of charge and my opinions above are honest and completely my own. If you own anything from LeapFrog, you'll probably agree that you love all of their great products!

    I brought this for my two year old son and my 4 year old girl. They love it, but my only complaint is that you have to buy eveything. None if the apps are free. Overall, if you put enough games on it the kids will stay entertained.

    We have not been able to get the battery compartment open for the Leapster Explorer GS. We just bought it because our son's Leapster Explorer wasn't working properly anymore. The directions say to push with your thumbs upwards. It has been impossible. My husband whose hands are strong from working in manufacturing wasn't able to get it. Any suggestions??

    • We had this same problem. We were able to open the compartment by using a screwdriver to pry it open. It seems like after it is done once it becomes much easier. We can now open it without prying it. Hope this helps.
