Kids can play and learn on the go.
Play and Learn On the Go

The Leapster2 is the winner of a range of industry awards, including Parent Magazine's Best Toys Award and Toy of the Year from Family Fun. It's no mystery why: This compact, well-designed gaming system is independent learning masquerading as video game fun.

Leapster2 comes with a starter game kids can download and has a library of over 40 other action-packed games that let kids play with characters they love--like Dora and Diego, SpongeBob, and the Little Mermaid--while learning preschool to second-grade level skills. Multiple skill levels in each game help keep kids interested.

Take the Fun Online

Leapster2 now features an online dimension that's accessible when you install the included CD-ROM. While online, kids can access rewards like certificates, coloring pages, and flash cards, and download and play additional learning games. They can also draw, paint, add animated stamps or weather effects on the Leapster2, and upload their creations to the Creativity Studio to embellish and share.

Track Your Child's Play and Learning on Learning Path

The online connection gives parents access to what LeapFrog calls the "Learning Path," which shares details about which games and activities children play most often, what questions they're answering, and what different learning benefits these games and questions provide. New skills appear as little digital footprints that then become "stepping stones" on a child's "Learning Path"--a visual representation of everything he or she is learning. For instance, if she's been busy with math-focused games, the footprint may say "Math: Subtraction" and you can click on it to read more about that particular skill set.

Our testers found the Learning Path to be a convenient way to keep tabs on what kinds of games/activities a child chooses most often, as well as those he or she avoids. Armed with that information, parents can appraise their child's overall academic skill set, including areas of improvement.

Two Modes of Operation for Travel and Home Play

The Leapster2 offers the convenience of both corded and cordless operation. Battery operation requires four AA batteries (not included), while an A/C adapter (not included with the Leapster2, but part of this bundle) lets you plug the system into any wall outlet.

Outwit! Develops Memory and Problem-Solving Skills

This Leapster2 bundle includes the game Outwit! for kids ages five to eight. Games like Compare and Contrast (where kids have to find the one that's not like the others while a timer ticks away) are great for kindergartners, while Spatial Reasoning helps older children develop problem-solving skills by asking them to identify what a certain shape would look like if folded in half, again with a timer ticking away. Speed and accuracy count, and as children expand their skill sets, the games adjust to continue to challenge them.

Carrying Case for Portability and Storage

The included carrying case protects the Leapster or Leapster2 on the go and has a wrist strap for easy carrying, although it may be too big to stay on smaller wrists. There's also room inside for four game cartridges, and a piece of elastic holds them in their compartment. It zips open and closed. This simple case also helps parents encourage kids to clean up and take care of their system and games when they're done playing for the day.

Warranty Information

The Leapster2 is backed by a three-month warranty.

There's nothing inherently wrong with this Leapster2 Bundle, but you'll have to consider the cost vs. the other options to figure out if this one is right for you.

The Leapster2 is part of Leapfrog's older generation of handhelds. It's compatible with the original Leapster titles, so you have a lot of choice out there for titles. The newer generation includes the LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Learning Game System (Green)and the the new LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet (green). Note that the Explorer and LeapPad cannot play Leapster or Leapster2 games. Similarly, if you buy this bundle, it is not compatible with Explorer titles or the Didj titles.

With the Leapster2, you can also download some games directly to the device, and one free download of your choice is included. The unit also comes with an "Art Studio" app that lets kids do drawings and coloring pages. You cannot expand the memory on this model, as there's no SD slot.

My biggest gripe with this model is the screen. It's slow to refresh and the plastic itself gives a weird glare that's somewhat hard on your eyes. If this is the first handheld your kid has, they probably won't notice, but it's not in the same league as the Explorer or LeapPad. Combine this with the relatively small price different between the models, and if you can afford it, I'd go for the Explorer. The games for each type of unit are around the same cost, so in the long-term, you're not saving much money by buying this model vs. the newer ones.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a nice package consisting of the following:
1. Leapster 2
2. A soft carrying case with wrist strap and room for 2 cartridges
3. One cartridge game (Outwit), suitable for 3-5 year olds
4. An AC adapter. (The Leapster 2 can also take 4 AA batteries if you want greater portability).

Aside from purchasing additional games/programs, it contains pretty much all you need to enjoy the Leapster 2 right away.

The Leapster 2 itself is a handheld gaming/educational system easily grasped by small hands, with naviational buttons, a touch screen, and an attached stylus. It has a small color LCD screen with somewhat low resolution. The hardware and processor speed are nothing to get too excited about (and definitely not comparable to a Nintendo DS or an iPhone). Somewhat confusingly, Leapfrog makes a number of overlapping products, and it is hard to differentiate the Leapster 2 from the Leapster Explorer, which is very similar in appearance.

However, the real strength of the Leapfrog system is in the software. In addition to the included cartridge game, which is a pleasant mix of reading and math puzzles, you get one free downloadable program from the Leapfrog website. There are many more programs available at additional cost, on a variety of topics and for different ages. Of course, the costs can add up quickly unless you are careful.

Before purchasing the Leapster 2, you may also want to check out Leapfrog's latest entry into the crowded field, the Leappad Explorer. It has a tablet design (like the iPad), with a larger touch screen than the Leapster 2. Definitely more expensive, but it seems to be getting a lot of attention in advance of the holiday season.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Whenever we get a new toy or gadget in the house, I usually give it a test run, do the set up, make sure any kinks are worked out, before handing it off to my 8 year old son, who is as much of a gadget nut as I am, but doesn't have quite the patience with new things I do (the impulse control for pressing buttons without reading is nil for him at this age)...

So I opened this, set it up, hooked it to my macbook, registered it, downloaded a free game, and played for a bit.

My thoughts: clunky, design isn't particularly made for kid hands or adult hands (bulky for little hands, slightly awkward for giant meaty man-hands), looks like a toy instead of the more modern video game toys (ie the nintendo DS).... I dug up some batteries so we could try it without the A/C adapter. I paused to order another pack of Eneloop rechargeables for this, as I couldn't imagine my son being tethered by the adapter or being happy about wasteful disposables...

The one thing that bugged me is that there is a max age (forgive me, please, I can't remember what it is, just that it's definitely 18 or under) when registering the device on the computer (for more games, demos, and tracking a child's play and progress). That bothered me as I remember my mother in law used to buy Leapfrog books and games for her 50 year old sister, who had Down Syndrome, and really enjoyed the technology and "edutainment". I don't like that there was a "cap" on the age, as something like this could be used by anyone, at any age.

I wasn't impressed by the graphics, they actually looked low-res and outdated to me. I was curious to see how my son (the gadget fiend) would react.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a great bundle, though the leapster 2 is now an older system, this stills seems like a pretty decent deal. When I got my bundle it included: Leapster 2 gaming system, soft carrying case with space for two games and a strap, one game (Out Wit) and an AC adapter.

I love bundles because they come ready to play- though you may want to purchase a few more games because the kiddies will eventually get tired of Outwit. :)

Though this gaming system is nothing compared to the Nintendo DS, it does have a small touch screen, stylus and is SO much more durable for the little ones. It also has some brilliant games that are educational and fun. You will also get one free downloadable game, which I thought was a pleasant surprise.

I highly recommend this product for your little ones. Educational, fun and super durable. Don't forget to check out the Leapster Explorer- a little pricey, but it is the newest addition to the Leapster family.
