Win it! We’re giving away Leapfrog’s latest tech toy for kids aged 4-9 and their most updated “Leapster” style product called the Leapster Explorer valued at $69.99. Prizing will also include a Toy Story 3 learning cartridge.
The Leapfrog Explorer product is light years ahead of the impressive Leapster2 in many aspects making it an exceptional learning tool for kids.
So what are the improvements?
– touch screen capability
-incredible screen clarity – I’d define it as comparable to my HD tv it is so clear and perfect
– video capacity to watch mini shows/movies/previews
-Besides cartridges (priced at $24.99) you can also purchase and download fantastic “leaplet” apps which are also super games for kids. Leaplet apps are priced at 2 for $15.
– This fall there will be a camera that can be purchased and used in conjunction with the Explorer for both Video & Photo purposes – also allowing room for creativity with the pics and video – think putting different backgrounds with your pictures.
Take a peek here!
We had the opportunity to test out the new Toy Story 3 , Madagascar (emphasis on Math skills!) and Disney Princess cartridge games. Mackenzie, aged 4, loved them all and really enjoyed the touch screen.
We tested several “leaplets” – Kenzie’s favorite was an app with a dental theme called Sugar Bugs where the kids needed to clean the teeth with a brush, floss and pick. Each level forced you to clean faster and faster and clean up messier teeth too. Great for enforcing dental health to the kids and the actual game forced Kenzie to think quick which I loved.
Overall, the Explorer is fabulous and I highly recommend it.We had zero complaints and if you are in the market for a Leapster or upgrade, this is the model you need to buy come July 15th.
