Color: Green Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We first got the original Leapster Explorer and then the LeapPad. Both of those are great. This LeapsterGS is sort of a hybrid between both. It's shaped and styled like the original explorer, but adds camera and video capabilities. It's solid and intuitive for kids to use. BEST of all, the same cartridges for games work on all three Leapfrog games. So, if you spend $25 on one game for your original Explorer, you'll be able to use it on the GS AND the Leappad. That's very cool. And the way the cartridges work, it's easy to change games and start playing.

However, it should be noted there's about a $30 difference between this GS and the LeapPad. For my money, I'd bump up to the LeapPad. Bigger screen, easier to change batteries, and more possibilities for game use. Otherwise, you won't be disappointed with this game. Be sure to get the AC adaptor...these things eat batteries like crazy.

My only big gripe is the box promises more than it delivers. It clearly states "a library of 300 games". Oh. Sounds good, except that the 'library' isn't included, you'll pay for each and every one. Only 3 "apps" are included, and "apps" are not full games. They are short little practice games and/or Ebooks (snooze). An "app" usually runs $20 for two codes (two games or ebooks). So, it'll come with enough for your kid to play with for about a day before you are online looking for the game cartridges (which range from $17 sale to $30). Also, the "apps" are not as easy to install, you have to enter a code via your LeapWorld connection online (installation takes forever!) and then download the app to your game via syncing cable. Not a problem after the first few times, but not as simple as the cartridge.

Absolutely a 5-star product, and so worth the money.

For the past six months, my son has lovingly played with my husband's old, cracked-glass iPod, building an impressive understanding of what each app can do. I received an email from LeapFrog inviting me to have a look at the Leapster Explorer GS. With my son's 4th birthday approaching and without knowing what to give him, I decided to click on the link to the demo video with my son next to me. He said, "Mom, I want that!" So we bought it for him, hoping it wouldn't be played with for three minutes and discarded for the old iPod.

It wasn't. He wouldn't put it down all day. The next morning, he woke up and went right for it and played it all day again, and for at least an hour every day since. (It's been ten days.) If this were nothing but a video game toy, then I would gently nudge him away from playing it after a while, but it's so much more than that. He loves the built-in camera. He'll sneak up beside me, and I'll hear the recorded voice saying, "5-4-3-2-1-say 'Cheese!'" I have to be quick to whip my head around and grin at him. Creativity is further encouraged in the photo lab which allows the child to convert the picture to black and white, alter the saturation, add stamps, and distort the image.

From the LeapFrog site, you can download numerous apps--videos, games, and ebooks. We got one called "Wheel Works" that teaches spatial relations, forces, and motion. His brain is being prepared to understand physics concepts. It also teaches strategic thinking. I happen to be a proponent of education through the medium of video game play. If only we approached the acquisition of all skills the way we do video game skills!

I am so disappointed. I set up the Leapster GS last night for my son's birthday. Today, while playing with it, it consistently went blank or froze when using a couple of the apps. The camera feature did not work at all - the only way to
'get out' is to power the game on and off. We have the Leapster Explorer and the Leapster Leappad and I have never had these types of issues. Either this was not tested thoroughly or they produced some lemons in the manufacturing process.

Update : There was an issue with the software and Leapfrog customer service gave me information on how to repair the software from the Connect application. It is still not clear to me why it was bugged to begin with OR why the repair files were not downloaded from Connect when I intially set up the GS. The customer service rep said that repair files sometimes don't get downloaded due to internet connection issues?? Additionally, it is not clear to me why instructions could not be found online to fix the error. The customer service rep had no answer for me. I find the Connect application to be tedious and slow, by the way. Anyways, I have upgraded my durability and overall ratings to be more favorable since the problem is now fixed.

For those of you who have the problem I did, Leapster recommends doing the following:

1) Open the LeapFrog Connect application, turn on the Leapster GS and connect it on your computer.
3) Click on the Go button on the name of the child.
3) Click on the Settings tab, Leapster GS and then click Repair

Note, when you initially connect the Repair button may be grayed out. It may take a couple minutes for all updates to download and the Leapster GS to fully connect before these buttons are clickable.
