I love this.. my now 5 year old still plays with it.. The games are accesable alone from age 4 (well mine) at 3 need help to follow read and set up. really good teaching tool and uses phonics.
Fantastic range of games with charachters from tv. My 6 year old still plays with it.. but usually only when the ds dies. Good introduction to computer games but educational at the same time. recommend diego, leapster own games and cars.Read moreLess

"My children had the first incarnation of this in the…"
My children had the first incarnation of this in the days before they'd heard of nintendos and they always loved it. This new version feels slightly smaller, but still chunkier and more robust than a nintendo which makes it less breakable and easier to hold for small hands. All the glamour of the personal video game is there though with a touch screen and stylus but all the games are educational as well as entertaining so you can feel good about your child using this device, because not only does it keep them quiet on long journeys, boring events but it'll also teach them to write/count even learn foreign languages. Cheaper by far than a nintendo, the games can still get quite pricey, but are at least small for storage and make good presents for birthdays. My kids only ever had about 3 games and seemed happy enough. I've just given my god-daughter this version with one game and it seems to keep her entertained, though have my eye on the Disney Princess game for her next birthday. Oh and crucially the new Leapster 2 comes in green and pink, but if you're mean like me and the little girl in question has a younger brother, I'd recommend the green so it can be passed on easily! In summary if you're looking for something to entertain/keep quiet your 4-6 year old and want to educate them at the same time, this is a great gift.Read moreLess
