I think Leapfrog knocked it out of the park this holiday season with the Leapster Explorer, which is a gaming system, an eBook, a video player, a camera and video recorder, but if your child is mostly just into the games, save a few bucks and get the Leapster2 instead. There are more than 40 games your child can play and they all help your child develop skills he/she will use in school. The easy-to-follow tutorials make it easy for your child to play independently and your child is able to advance at his/her own pace. And if you’re worried about what or how often your child is playing on the Leapster2, don’t–you can keep track of your child’s activity online.
Bonus: Because today is Black Friday, the Leapster2 is on sale for just $40. Snatch one up for your child before they go back up to $60.
Price: $40 (down from $60)
