Leapster GS Explorer

Leapster GS Explorer Green
Enjoy state of the art gaming and boost your learning at the same time with the Green LeapsterGS Explorer . The smart looking, kid-proof games console is packed with cool features and will win over your mum and dad when they realise how much it boosts the skills you learn at school . It has all the best bits of the original Leapster Explorer, like its library of more than 300 downloadable apps and games , only this swanky updated model has the following extras: Thinner design that's nicer to handle, bigger screen for better viewing. Built-in camera to put pictures of yourself into games. Built-in video recorder and voice recorder for capturing memories. Nearly 4 x more memory (2GB in total). Built-in sensor for tilting, turning and shaking The LeapsterGS Explorer needs 4 x AA batteries, which are not included. 

Leapfrog are a huge name in educational toys and this is their latest product. Looking similar to 'grown up' consoles, this is a very sturdy and reasonably priced product which children are going to love and will not realise that they are learning as they play.
Available in both pink or green colourways, this will be attractive to both girls and boys alike. The console needs 4xAA batteries to power it, although it would have been great if a connection had been available to power it from mains electric. 
The console includes both a camera for still photography and video footage, which has good clarity for a child's console. There is a stylus actually attached to the console - perfect as these things often get lost. There is a software disc included in the pack which is very easy to install, as is the console to set up. It is possible to have three profiles set up on the console.

Once the software has been installed on a computer (both windows and mac compatible) it is possible to download games and apps to your console via USB cable (included). These range in price from £3.50 to £20 (new releases) and it possible to download games, ebooks, flashcards, music and creative apps. As with all Leapfrog devices there are a range of popular characters included within the games: Cars, Brave, Dora to name but a few.

This is a great idea for a Christmas gift, it will let young children have their own console which is sturdy and more manageable for little hands then some of the popular consoles available on the market and is reasonably priced.

I received this through the Amazon Vine Programme.
