My two daughters, ages four and six, enjoy Pet Pals 2 very much. Their favorite part of the game is that they get to pick their own pets. My four year old will play the game more than my six year old.

In the game, you play games in order to earn Doggie Dollars. You can use the Dollars to buy them clothes and accessories. Children have to solve math problems in order to get through the Show section of the game.

When you synchronize your Leapster Explorer with your computer, it will send the parents an e-mail message with the child's total game time and report card - what skills they are learning using the games that you have.

The game now arrives in a cardboard box, there is no longer a plastic case for each individual cartridge. You may want to consider buying the soft bag that goes along with the Leapster to store all your games so they do not get lost. The cartridges are small, and are easily misplaced. I have found the bag to helpful in keeping everything together.

I wish I had read the reviews before buying this for my son. He is 4, and loves Pet Pals 2. He got a Leap Pad 2 and 3 games for the holidays, and Pet Pals was by far his favorite game. But as others have described, the software is incredibly buggy. It constantly freezes, which is really frustrating for a kid. The only way to get out of the app is to take the batteries out of the Leap Pad.

I called customer support, and they wanted me to "Repair" the Leap Pad, and clean the Pet Pals cartridge with a Q-tip. Of course, neither of these ridiculous attempts were successful, as a Q-tip does not fix buggy software.

On my second call, they offered to manually push a new copy of the software to my Leap Pad. I asked if it was an updated version with bug fixes to the software. After being put on hold, I was told that they are still working on updates to the game, but they do not have any timeline as to when the update would be released. So, in the meantime, I could pick some different Leap Pad game off of their site, and they'd send it to my device.

I used to work for a software company, and I have to say that it's totally unacceptable to be selling software that simply won't run. I know that software sometimes has minor bugs, but they must be so minor that it doesn't actually effect the workings of the software. Something so buggy that it won't even run is completely unacceptable. I'm very disappointed in this product and in Leap Frog for selling something that doesn't work.

We need to patch my daughter's eye so this game was an incentive & motivation for her to keep her eye patched. She is able to play it as long as she keeps the patch on and the challenge has been to find something she actually wants to play for long enough that she will keep the patch on. She loves this game as it is not only educational but, fun too. She is 7 years old and usually is not one to stay focused for long, but for some reason she can't seem to get enough of this particular game.

My kids LOVE this game but both of their Leappads lock up when playing Pet Pals 2. We returned the first cartridge and tried a different one but it locks up as well. We will be returning this game for a different game. I hope the company will fix the glitch so our kids can enjoy their favorite Leappad game again!

We have played both Pet Pals 1 for the leapster 2 and now Pet Pals 2 for the leapster explorer and leappad, my girls LOVE pet pals 2! It is so much better than PP1. It is basically the only cartridge game out of 6 that they really play over and over. I haven't really looked into it too much, so I can't leave that detailed of a review, but I can say they enjoy it. You can buy it as a cartridge game or if you have 2 devices you can buy it thru the leapfrog connect for twentyfive dollars, but if you luck out and find a download app card on sale, it is totally worth it to just put it on 2 devices so you don't have children fighting over it all the time ;)

My 4year old daughter loved this game, but we had to send it back because it constantly freezes up the entire leappad. What a shame.

This seems to be a common problem...

When playing this game every time my daughter tries to change her puppy's outfit it not only locks up the game but the entire LeapPad 2. You cannot exit the game, return to the homepage or even shut the LeapPad off. I have had to resort to removing the batteries.

My daughter absolutely adores the game but cannot play it

I got it to work finally but I found it very annoying that Leapfrog has known for a while about the glitch in this software and they are still selling ones without the fix. They still expect you to connect to leapfrog and get the patch. Seriously pull in the old stock and replace it. It's one thing to do a fix for those already sold but fix your stock.
