My daughter received the original leapster for Christmas about 1 year back, along with a Dora game. It has been the best product I have found to keep the attention of a 5 year old child with ADD. By the end of Christmas day she had already figured every activity out and wouldn't stop playing with it. Unfortunatly, it will no longer read cartridges, no matter the amount of cleaning and begging that I do. So we will be upgrading to the L-Max soon.
My only problem with the original is the amount it eats through batteries, I believe by now I should own stock in Duracell or which ever one that pink pepto-besmol bunny works for. The five year old has learned tons of stuff from math to vocabulary and her 2 year old sister has learned as well from the looking over big sister's shoulder act. But if your not willing to buy stock in batteries, buy the l-max and the charger dock. The extra money you spend on that will make up for it when u don't have to buy batteries every two days.
