Games, Videos, and E-Books Build School and Life Skills

Winner of several industry awards, including Toy of the Year (TOTY) 2011, Leapster Explorer encourages kids to explore something new every day with over 40 games and activities that develop school skills while keeping active minds entertained. High-resolution graphics and well-loved characters from Dora to Buzz Lightyear to the Madagascar Penguins keep kids engaged as they develop reading, math, science, and geography skills and build life skills like music, health, and problem solving.

From games to learning apps, personalized play to progress updates, and on-the-go to online adventures, Leapster Explorer offers a wide variety of ways for kids to play and learn.

Easy Setup and Software Installation

Setting up the Leapster Explorer is easy enough for older kids to complete on their own. Younger ones might need help using a coin (nickels work best) to remove the battery compartment cover and inserting four AA batteries (not included). From here, kids choose their language, set the time and date, and create a player name for everyone who will be using the device. The device comes with a CD-ROM to install the LeapFrog Connect Application, which includes a free game and gives your child access to an online world of material and options.

Connect to Discover World of Fun and Learning

When children connect the Leapster Explorer to a computer via the included USB cord, they'll be able to download any one of the over 20 available learning apps they'd like to play by entering the code on the included Starter Leaplet download card (additional cards can be purchased online and in stores). Our testers liked that when kids download these apps, they first identify themselves by player name. In cases where siblings are using the same Leapster, everyone still has their own personal cache of activities. The one negative of this system, however, is that the thin Leaplet cards can easily get lost before they are cashed in online.

As children play, the Leapster Explorer automatically adjusts the learning level so kids can learn at their own pace and remembers play progress from game to game. It lets kids get practice and reinforcement via customized math and spelling skill lessons as they play.

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.

Explore the World with Globe Earth Adventures

Designed for kids ages four to seven (preschool through first grade), the Globe Adventures game for the Leapster Explorer lets kids embark on an exciting mission to help build geography, map, and other skills. They fly a plane to different destinations using the D-pad and learn the names of continents by clicking on their place on the globe. Games include real-life photos to teach facts about the world so kids can build skills to become elite members of the GEO team. Playing this game also helps kids earn online rewards.

Carrying Case for Portability and Storage

The zippered carrying case protects the Leapster or Leapster 2 on the go and has a wrist strap for easy carrying, although it may be too big to stay on smaller wrists. There are also two mesh pockets and three elastic straps for holding up to five game cartridges and accessories. Durable and easy to use, this case helps parents encourage kids to clean up and take care of their system and games when they're done playing for the day.

What's in the Box

Leapster Explorer, USB cord, installation CD-ROM, Leaplet learning app download card, quick start guide, carrying case, and Global Earth Adventures game.

My two preschoolers both love this product! The Leapster Explorer is a much better system than the VTech MobiGo system we own. The Explorer Globetrotter Pack system comes with the Leapster Explorer handheld system, padded carrying case, and the Globe Earth Adventures game cartridge.

The system was packaged well and was easy to get up and running after installing four AA batteries, which were not included. There are ports on the handheld system for an AC adapter, earphones, and USB. The system fits perfectly in my children's hands and the buttons are well laid out. An attached stylus is also provided for gameplay and writing drills.

The games are very educational and engaging, providing hours of fun for my kids. Games containing logic, math, spelling, geography, and reading are all available for purchase. I love that games can be installed via the web, or can be purchased in cartridge form at stores. I can't finish this review without mentioning the quality screen that is on this little system. The picture quality is amazing and the touchscreen worked very well. Great job LeapFrog!

The Leapster Explorer is a device designed for children that the manufacturer chose do devote exclusively to educational content. The device is well designed, my niece and nephew, age 6 and 4 respectively, were able to get up to speed in using the Explorer almost immediately. I was definitely impressed with the ease which with they were able to learn how to play with this device. This particular Leapster Explorer package comes with a strong protective case, a cartridge based educational app, and a card with a redemption code with which you can choose one app from a list of 8 or so online educational apps. While there are far more online apps than the 8 you get to choose from with this card, in my opinion, they are not of the same quality as the cartridge based apps.

This device is clearly designed to compete with the Nintendo DS and also it ends up being in competition with smart phones like the iPhone. I think the main selling point of the Leapster Explorer is that it is designed solely for educational apps. This means that if you buy this device for your child, your child will be shielded from the sometimes violent games that are offered on the Nintendo DS and the iPhone (via the Apple App Store). So, you know that, no matter what your child plays, he or she will be playing something educational. Frankly, I think this is the main selling point of this device. You can get some educational apps for the Nintendo DS (not many though) and you can get a lot of educational apps for the iPhone, but only the Leapster Explorer offers these types of apps exclusively.

Finally, I would like to recommend that a potential buyer also consider the LeapPad Explorer.

I'm really torn between liking this unit and not liking this unit.

Admittedly, our preschooler has gotten alot of learning and entertainment value from this unit and he has played with this Leapster Explorer practically everyday for the past month and a half.

However, here are some of the likes and dislikes I have regarding the Leapster Explorer...

*While he's using it, it keeps our preschooler engaged and is both fun and educational for him.

*It offers good clean, wholesome educational and fun apps.

*Very rugged and tough.

*Carrying case provides excellent protection to the handheld and cartridges.

*The monitor displays excellent graphics and colors.

*When unit is left idle, it automatically powers down. I think I like this feature the most.***

*This unit does not come with an AC adapter. It is an additional purchase. About $10.00 - $15.00 or you can get the rechargable batteries and the docking station for an additional $50.00+

*Although this unit is USB, it is for transmission only and does not power the unit.

*Cartridges are a bit pricey $24.00+ and the online web store is very limited on their selections. (We did find some Leapster Explorer download cards at Mal-Wart, on clearance, for $14.97 which contained two cards, each good for one downloadable app, ebook, game or video, through their online store. However, as an iPad 2 owner, we get access to thousands of apps, games and video for free... which in all honesty, puts this unit to shame.)

*The user agreement is extremely intrusive and you essentially agree to allow them to violate your privacy. We agreed, but we did not use any of our primary computers to install their software.

My 7-year-old son is computer freak. He loves handheld games, he loves computer games, he loves ipod apps. He also loves geography and maps, so when I was given the opportunity to review this product, I jumped on it. While the typical Leapster's age range is 3 - 7, this pack's software allows you to enter your grade, up to 8th grade.

There is one free download game that comes with it. My son selected Jewel Train. It's fun (according to him), but since it's a puzzle game of putting together tracks, it definitely promotes higher thinking skills.

I like that this kit comes with the case, so that you are entirely equipped to keep up with extra cartridges and protect the gaming unit.

You can set up and personalize (and download that free game) after you set up an account and hook it up to your computer. This was quick and easy.

He's also excited to possibly add on the LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Camera and Video Recorder, which at $20 seems reasonable to me.

I was worried that he would think it was babyish, but he doesn't really, although he still honestly prefers the Nintendo DS for gaming fun. I wish I had gotten something like this when he was younger, and highly recommend it for parents of 3 - 5 year olds.
