Leapfrog Games - Exploring the Explorer

LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer
With the new LeapFrog toys springing off the assembly line and into retail outlets, it’s no surprise that there is also a brand-new line of games to accompany them. However, the most anticipated and played upon Leapfrog gadget of the season is the LeapFrog LeapsterGS Explorer; a handheld gaming console with educational elements and entertaining pre-downloaded applications. This console acts as a camera, video recorder, library for over 300 downloads (including books and movies), and the ultimate source of learning fun for kids wherever they happen to be. It’s great for long car trips or after school game time on the couch. There’s no wrong way to go with this device!

What are a couple of the games we can expect for the Explorer?


Jake and the Neverland Pirates

Your little boy will likely recognize Jake and his band of treasure-hunting misfits from the flourishing Disney show. In this game, Captain Hook is (again) after Jake’s bountiful trove of gems and rare gold; therefore, your son has to navigate Jake through a series of mini-games to thwart Hook. Appropriate for children 3 and up, this is a unique learning game, designed to help with puzzle solving, matching shapes, counting, and a slew of other skills that are integral to your son’s growing imagination and mind.


The Magic School Bus Oceans

Most adults can relate to the memory of the good times aboard the Magic School Bus! This game takes kids aboard to dive beneath the ocean, discovering over 100 sea animals – each with their own unique fact. Ideal for children 5 and up, this teaches about science where little eyes usually don’t get to travel, while instilling other qualities like observation, sorting, classifying, and reasoning. A total of seven games and several mini-events will unlock more fun facts about the interesting creatures of the sea.
