So you are probably looking for that special toy for your preschool age going kid. Maybe it is for their birthday or it is for Christmas, the Leapster 2 by Leapfrog is a great choice. This multimedia game is hand held and has games, stories to read, ability to draw and videos to watch. The main focus of this system is on having education fun.
Most kids who have played with this tend to get hooked, sometimes they are only playing the one game that they can download from the Leapfrog website. However you will notice an enhanced interest the more games that you add to their collection. These games allow your kid to learn many different skills whilst having fun playing with the game at the same time. They hardly notice that they are actually being taught valuable lessons.
The toy is very roughed and hence durable. Even if your kid was to drop it to the floor, they can pick it up and immediately continue playing like nothing ever happened. It is super simple to insert the different games into the the cartridge slot. It is so easy to use, your kid will not ask for your help once they start playing, they can do everything themselves.
So how is the Leapster 2 different from the earlier version? Well for one it has control buttons which have been redesigned and they also put the stylus pen in a new place. Another great feature they have added to the Leapster 2 is the ability to play Leapster games on the hand held itself as well as on any computer. One other thing that comes with the latest version is the new Learning Path feature.
This new gaming system is available for about $70 from the normal kids stores like Toys R Us or even at your local Walmart.
