All in all, this is probably the best $25 I've spent in a LONG LONG time...
The camera comes with a variety of game and software options, plus the photos can be archived and shared using the Leapster Connect website interface. Once the initial setup is complete, it's quick and easy to pick up and use the camera, but the voice prompted interface does require a few moments of patience and touchscreen or stylus tapping prior to shooting photos.
Fun for kids, but this product will definitely require some adult setup and supervision to use properly. The camera/handheld unit are solid and would definitely withstand the potential drops and crashes that little users may put it through. This would like be a great way to introduce little ones to the art of photography without putting your good camera at risk.
The camera attachment plugs directly into the bottom of the Explorer module, and we used the included CD to install its software on our computer. The installation was easy and seamless. The kids were instantly able to use both the still and video cameras. The whole system is small enough to take on outings. The buttons on the game console were straight forward and easy to figure out. The 4 year old needed some assistance with how to center photos, but it didn't take her long to catch on. She was also quickly adept at using the special effects software, and she has been having a blast with it.
At four, she needs assistance with PC connections, and file transfers, but, for the most part, she can use the system quite competently on her own. The ten year old intuitively knew how to work everything. The only problem we had was which kid had control of the system! That problem persists.
The video and photo quality is quite good, certainly far better than what has been available in the past. It is terrific to be able to transfer the files to the computer, since the memory on the system fills up quickly, especially with videos. It is easy to transfer and delete data from the card to keep it ready to record.
The Explorer system with the camera attachment is now the favorite video game/camera system in the house, and the interest is not diminishing at all.
The computer interaction for parents for this system is great.
The only change we have to make is to purchase the charger available for the Explorer, since we sure are running through a lot of batteries!
I can't recommend this system highly enough, it is very impressive, and great fun for everyone.
My kids are pretty tech savie...both can operate my iPad, they have their own laptop, and play around with our digital point and shoot camera already. I thought this would be a natural fit for them.
My kids were interested in the LeapFrog explorer for a little while, but found it overly cumbersome to get to the picture taking capability. Too much manipulation of the main system was required to get to the camera to take pictures. They were used to simply hitting the power button and immediately snapping pictures on the point and shoot that we have.
Also, the camera resolution on this thing is pretty terrible. At only 640x480, the images were grainy, poorly lit, etc. The kids typically use our Canon point and shoot which has a flash on it so it helps freeze the action of them running around. This LeapFrog camera has no flash so the images are blurred.
Downloading the images to the computer is harder task than simply dropping the SD memory card into the card reader. The offload process is definitely too complicated for a kid to do it by themself.
All in all, I would recommend that if a parent is interested in a digital camera for their kids I would go with the Crayola Digital Camera for kids that is about $29.99 at the local Costco or Walmart. That one has a flash, 3MP resolution, and seems much more durable.

It didn't last very long, it just stopped working. It just keeps telling us to connect the camera when it is already connected. Waste of money, do not recommend.Published 10 months ago by Love2bemommy
