LeapFrog Leapster L-Max Learning Game System

 

New in LeapFrog's line of educational toys is the Leapster L-Max, a handheld for kids 4 to 10 years old that connects to your television. Unlike the V.Smile, which transfers the same image on its screen to the TV, the L-Max puts one image on the TV and...

LeapFrog Leapster2

 

It's a good learning tool, but we wish the Leapster's games were as entertaining as its pure-fun counterparts.

Learning path software lets you track kids' progress; compatible with older Leapster games; good selection of learning games based on appealing licensed properties; inexpensive

Graphics aren't competitive with entertainment handheld systems; somewhat bulky

On its own, the Leapster2 hardware isn’t going to grab a kid who has tried a portable gaming system, but the Learning Path software's success reinforcement —and parents who interactively engage their kids in learning reading, math, and other skills—can...

First look: LeapFrog Leapster 2 review

 

Computer games, if you believe the Daily Mail, are all about death and carnage, or parents are ogres because they let their kids play computer games. Sound familiar? Well Leap Frog want to change all that with the Leap Frog Leapster 2. So can they? We...

Large, graphics aren't great

While the Leapster 2 isn't a touch on the creative or graphical powers of the Nintendo DS, you can be sure that the games will be geared towards cramming you child’s head with education

Super Charged!

 

My son got a Leapster for Christmas and went through the AA batteries really fast. I think we went through an entire Sam's Club package the first week he had the system. We went and purchased the charging pack and was very pleased. The charging ...

Small, easy to use; works well

Doesn't have a sensor telling when the charge is full

Surprising Engaging Educational Toy

 

My daughter received the Leapfrog Leapster L Max as a gift shortly after her 3rd birthday along with the Pet Pals game cartridge. I was sure that she was too young but was I wrong. The recommended ages are 3-4 years; 5-7 years and 8-11 years ...

LeapFrog Leapster Portable Gaming Console

 

I gave my 4 year old girl this one on Christmas 2011. She opened it, played with it for 5 mins and never asked for it back. The screen technology is obviously circa 5 years ago at least. I was ok and understood going in that it didn't come with many...
