Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Wonderful 'toy'!

Instead of a gameboy, we chose to go the Leapster route for our 5 yr old son when he was then 4. He didn't touch it for about a year. When he turned 5 and was in Kindergarten learning his ABC's, that's when he really took to it. I wish they had a wider selection of games to choose from, so from that standpoint this item is somewhat still limited. If you're in Canada like me, you'll be frustrated with even less choice that we have unless you order it online. A great learning tool, something I don't mind my son picking up anytime he likes!
