    She will be 3 yrs. old in June and I wanted to get something fun for her but educational as well. She likes trying to play her sister's DS games so I wanted something similar for her but more age appropriate.

    • A. I would go with the explorer. It would be easier for her little hands to hold. The pad is larger than the explorer and both items use the cartridges and you can download from Leap Frog's web site.

    • A. There really is no difference in the Leap Pad and the Leapster GS, they are the same games, just the difference of the hand held or the pad type. It is just a preference of which you think your daughter is going to utilize more. If she likes her sisters DS, then the GS handheld would be better because then she could be like sister! You also when you set up either system input their age and level, and the more they play the more the games change and adapt to them.

    • A. Hello! Both devices have similar features however the LeapPad2 sports a front facing camera and more memory. The smaller display on the LeapsterGS may be more durable for your young one.

    The LeapsterGS is a hit with my kids!

    My two children (ages 8 and 6) each have their own Leapster Explorers (first generation), but they were blown away by the LeapsterGS Explorer! They adore the camera and interactive photography and movie making made possible by the digital camera, video cam and mike. They also really like the larger screen, calling it "the kids' iPad". The motion sensor gives a Wii-like aspect to the new games, which is cool, but their old LeapsterExplorer cartridges work with it too (I love that!). The abundance of apps and games online for the LeapsterGS that can be downloaded to the device are also big pluses for my family. All in all, I don't believe it is totally necessary to purchase a LeapsterGS Explorer if your kids already have a standard Explorer, but if you are shopping for a new or additional one DEFINITELY go for the GS! Disclosure: My family was sent one LeapsterGS Explorer for review. All opinions are my own.

    We have previous Leapsters, so we were excited to try out the new GS, which we received for free to review. It's quite a bit smaller than previous devices, which is better for little hands. It's also better for on-the-go play. The Leapster GS Explorer has gorgeous graphics and a zippier speed. The kids don't notice things like that as much as I do, but I think it impacts their overall engagement. My kids are most excited about the camera addition. I'm not so thrilled about the new battery compartments, which are the hardest of all Leapsters to get off. They slide off, but are very difficult to remove. I ended up handing it over to my husband, who also battled to get the covers off. I actually miss the covers with the screws. As with all LeapFrog products, I highly recommend using rechargeable batteries. It will save you a ton of money and, of course, is better for the environment.

    Same great features of the LeapPad for less!

    LeapFrog was gracious enough to send my soon to be 5 year old daughter the new LeapsterGS free of charge to review and boy was she excited! 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. The games and apps are great, the system is not too bulky and easy to hold in little hands. I guess my only complaint I would have is that you'll be replacing batteries a lot, however, LeapFrog has an AC adapter on the site, so that solves that problem. I love the new sleek design and the graphics are as good as any. This really is a great gaming system. If you're looking for a great, educational gaming system for a great price, I would definitely recommend the LeapsterGS. The opinions above are honest and completely my own.

    My daughter had the older version until it and her did not agree, so had to get a replacement. Love these items from Leap Frog they are great learning tools for kids. They play games, but learn at the same time and don't even realize it. Love it

    My 3 yr old loves it!! We owned the Leapster Explorer and the Leap Pad...both of which my son loves!!! We just recently purchased this along with the Leap Pad 2 due to arrive later this week. My son is super excited. I love them both as they have different games and features. Both come in handy...and teach him different skills...love that the games are compatible! Can't wait to get the Leap Pad 2... Headphones are a MUST for any parents sanity!! Plus love the feature of the battery pack...a wise investment. No more taking batteries out to charge...just plug it in! Love the battery packs! Great new feature...we have the messenger bag...because we have two systems and many games...we needed the extra space. I recommend it even if you buy one...especially if you purchase the battery pack so you can tote the USB cord and A/C adapter!
