Our older Leapster had taken a beating, so I decided to upgrade to the Leapster 2 since it was compatible with the previous series of games. This version seems to be a pretty significant upgrade. The downloadable content is nice, as is the ability to have the child's progress recorded on the Leapster website. The touch screen is more accurate, and the graphics clearer. My three year old is the chief operatorof this device, and he requires quite a bit of help with the games. However, he is a special needs kid, so he is not the best gauge. He can turn it on and change games on his own. He is better with games requiring the pen than those which require the keys to control. My seven year old son, who is a DSi devoteee also likes this new Leapster. I think this game is a good overall diversion, and a fun way to sneak in some learning while entertaining your little one. Ours sees way too many hospital rooms, but it is a nice way to pass some of the time. Games for the Leapster can add up to some $$$, so I hope that this version is supported for some time to come.

The game is a good size, very sturdy and easy for my child to use. I had the LeapsterGS already but had purchased about 10 games not realizing they were for the Leapster or Leapster2 so instead of returning them I ordered the leapster2 and my daughter loves it! The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 because compared to the LeapsterGS the picture quality isn't as good. And that's the only reason, it's a great product and my daughter plays it all the time.

We purchased the Toy Story Leapster for my son for his 4th birthday. I came with a download of 2 educational games. We chose a letters one and a numbers one. He played with it nonstop for about a day and then started asking for more games, which cost about $20 each. If you have the money to purchase several additional game cartridges, this is a great toy. But don't expect the child's attention to last very long with just what comes with the system. Graphics are okay, I expected better from the photos online. Durability, great. I have two sons, ages 4 and 5, and they are very rough with their toys. We've had this system for about 3 months and so far it's held up great.

My six-year-old has pretty much outgrown these games, but sometimes still chooses this system over his tablet or Wii. He's been playing with a Leapster since he was three. I've gone through one a year, so they're clearly not indestructible, but definitely last through a few butterfinger moments. I'm sure this one will be his last, since it's probably not sophisticated enough to keep a seven-year-old intrigued for any length of time.

Item came as described, used the disk to download games that came with it, our computer warned us that security does not recommend using it but Leapster Company insisted it is ok so we did and our computer now has something wrong with it and never got games downloaded. Son is 3 and shows little interest. Hope he will use more if we get more games which are hard to find now.
