leapster exploser is so additicting! in a great way though!

I had got my seven year old daughter brave and we both love it! she can learn thing's that school's do and don't focus on it really cover's it bases. she can also do her spelling words on the leapster explorer which is great cause my daughter dislike's homework and it perfect for the kid's to engage in a fun and learning experience. the only thing is I wish that disney would put up a site ([email protected]) to help with all the different quest or riddle's that kid's get stuck on! or atleast giving a hint so that the kid's don't fall out of interest with the game like the internet suggest the hint button well my daughter doesn't have it on her's we never seen one funny because it should be on the right top side but for now will wait to see what costumer service say. But it's so hard to wait when this game is so addicting!

The Brave LeapFrog Explorer Learning Game is fun and educational, but it may not be what kids expect from the outset. They won't be battling bears. Instead, they'll be collecting plants, looking for geodes, and doing nature-related quizzes. The nature quizzes are challenging in content, but involve either matching a group of labels to the appropriate places in a picture or answering a multiple choice question. It would be nice to see two modes of difficulty, as older kids may quickly tire of the game's continual prompting and may prefer the chance to solve puzzles without guidance. The three mini-games are fun to play and kids will enjoy the challenge of collecting certain items to complete a collection and earn badges. It's a great quality title and a bit different from other games we've seen from LeapFrog with a stronger central storyline.
