Leapster 1st Grade is a title with no famous branded character to encourage children to play, and subject matter that is obviously educational. But testers loved this program.

First grade is a challenging academic year during which most children learn to read and do math. Leapster 1st Grade is a first-rate choice to supplement this rigorous curriculum, because it cocoons children while helping them to learn. Edison, an adorable little firefly, pops up to explain educational concepts whenever children make repeated mistakes. But Leapster 1st Grade won't seem like school to your children, because they will be having too much fun earning tokens to notice that they are learning as they play.

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.
