Christmas Cheer #9: Learn with LeapFrog ! ( R+G) 11/30

This post is a part of Christmas Cheer, a Holiday Gift Event, that will run on my blog from Nov 1-30.
 LeapFrog 's Leapster Explorer, is an extraordinary new learning experience that encourages children to discover something new every day with endless ways to play and learn--from games, e-Books, videos, and online play to customizable learning skills and more.

I was sent the Leapster Explorer and I reviewed it with my son. It comes with a CD that  has a step-by-step installation. It is mentioned that it can be installed using Mac, but I had trouble installing it and had to use Windows to get it installed.

Once it was done, my son was all set to have fun. The benefits of this toy can be fully exploited by  older children as they tend to be have more focus on exploring. For toddlers, it is a great toy to stimulate curiosity as they really don't know the reason behind pressing a button, they just love to press buttons! It came with a "leaplet" or a card that you could use to download a game according to the age of your child. The leaplets can be purchased for $19.99 and it comes with 2 download codes . I wish the leaplets were a bit more affordable but you can grab them when they are on sale.

It certainly is a great learning tool that comes is a case packed with fun.I'd rather have my son play with a educational system than other addictive video games. I like the fact the the learning doesn't get lost in the fun. I downloaded "Mr Pencil saves Doodleburg" and I sit with my son and let him watch the screen.He asks "What's that mommy?" every time the screen changes and I get to tell him, so mommy is still in the picture :) It won't be long before he will be  way too busy with this toy.If you have a little princess, Leapster Explorer comes in Pink too!
 The best feature I like about the Leapster Explorer is that it is the perfect size for little hands.The screen is just the right size. I know I can survive long trips with this toy! You can enhance the Leapster Explorer with some great accessories that are available online.With a camera accessory, it turns into a camera and video recorder.It really a fun, educational toy.This is my first LeapFrog products and I am impressed and look forward to using more of LeapFrog products for my children.
  •  A library of more than 40 games and activities includes cartridge games, download-able learning apps (games, e-Books, videos, flash cards and more), a camera/video recorder** and more.
