Leapster SystemJose Ramirez -

I like the size of this gaming system – it’s great for home play, but is also convenient to take on the go.  Kids can keep playing & learning by playing cartridge games and by downloading “apps” into it.

The interface is very user friendly – a 4 yr. old can use it just fine and the color screen is a good size.  I like the fact I can sit next to my son and see what’s on the screen.  I just love the fact the Explorer adjusts to your child’s skill level.  Explorer will increase the difficulty of an activity if your child continues to excel with it.  It was great my son learned about triangles the other day.

Nubbee –                   Leapster Learning Systems

The Leapfrog Explorer is for kids aged 4-9, but my 2 1/2 year old will happily sit down & play with it.  There are vast variety of games for the Leapster Learning System, from school basics to life skills to creativity, science and more – so there’s sure to be something your kid will love.  The graphics in this hand-held are impressive.  I’ve tried several of the games, my current favorite is ToyStory 3.  I had to use math skills to help Woody find his way back to Andy and save the toys.  This game is sure to be a hit with your kids!

Some great things about Explorer – more than one child can have an account and it’s a good size…both for little hands & for Mom and Dad.  Easy to toss in a bag for travel.

Some bummers – Leapfrog makes a recharger base, but it’s sold separately which means you’ll go thru AA batteries quickly unless you buy the recharger.  With the eBooks, you have to be very precise when touching the words, which may be frustrating for younger users.

Overall, I’m really happy we got the Leapfrog Explorer.

Learning doesn’t have to be a chore – for you or for your kids.  There are a few vital points that will help your child stay on track when it comes to homework, studying and learning in general.  Some of these main points are:  having a specific area for homework and study, regularity – have a specific time when homework & studying are done, no TV turned on during homework or study, and having the proper tools at home, like a good dictionary and encylopedia.
