Can you get the games for this quite cheap
I believe its the same games as the leap pad explorer which are around £20 however, we got our little ones the cards to buy apps with. we got cards with a £15 value for £10 each on play and that got them 8 games each - 4 with each card and each app can be shared with upto 3 devices. we only got the cheaper apps which were £3.50 ish each but they go from that upto around £20 each - the thinking for us was that they always loose ds games - apps cant get lost! they also come with a built in camera and a couple of apps already on - the unit as it comes kept mine happy from july to december when we got more x
I've got, actually my son, leapster explorer but no gs price on games are vary the cheapest from leapster app are 3.50 the most expensive 20 you can buy the card as steedam said even yesterday I bought sesame street vol 1 for 3.50 you can also find good deals on games. For this price is absolutely bargain
Thank you, missed it last time, when it was £20. Ordered 1 for my eldest, tempted to buy another for my 2nd one.. but...
want to get one for daughters 3rd bday. What else can they do on this apart from games? How many games available at 3.50? Does it take cartridges too?
it does take cartridges too. there are quite a few £3.50 games plus it comes with some already on and i got a code for 2 games for 99p on ebay too (alphabet stew and another) if she is 3 she will love it.

we have the explorers but games wise i thin thye are the same, mine spend more time on the camera than anything thing else and it keeps them happy for hours! My little girl is 4 and my little boy is 6 - he has the leap pad to take out and about and plays with daddies blackberry at home and even he is very happy with it.

At this price you really cannot go wrong! x
Blast. I went for this at £30 a few weeks ago when I missed the £20 deal. Looking out for some cheap games now.
Thanks Steedam. I just searched for Leapster codes on ebay and found the 99p deal you mentioned.
WE ALSO GOT SOME RECHARGABLE BATTERIES AND CHARGER (ALWAYS LOADS POSTED ON HERE) NO NEED TO BUY OFFICIAL CHARGER PACKS ETC X
Really good deal this. The original Leapster explorer was around 60 when it launched and does not have a camera or as neat as this new one.

Cracking deal found here.

Games work between this and the leapad's so good if you have 2 kids and you want no arguments. They are aimed at younger children and they have more educational value than say you bought a nintendo ds.

I think my kids get more variety from iOS games on my iPod Touch and Nexus, but have bought my soon-to-be 5 year old one of these as I think she'll enjoy having her own machine, and suspect she'll use it mainly to take photos and videos.

One of the included games (something about 'sillies') allows you to take photos of people and put them in the game. I think she'll love that. Her seven year old sister is likely to be eying it carefully, and may decide that sharing is suddenly a good idea.

Are there any other games which use the camera imaginatively available on the app store?
I set a couple of these up for my nieces at Christmas. You can get these two free games by redeeming the codes on the Leapfrog site:

The Super Book Of Awesome Stuff: 5813 1140 1518 1413

Alphabet Stew: 5813 0790 4610 4973

Additionally, if you have more than one device remember that any game you purchase for one device online can be transferred to your other one too. The cartridges don't have this ability from what I can see and can be quite expensive if you don't shop around.

fab ordered one
perfect
We have one of these and a leappad. If you can spend the extra £12 and find the pad version in sainsburys I'd recommend it, they are better.
Very tempted
Super deal ordered 2 one each for presents for my lovely nieces .
Ordered .... Good spot, now all we need is a good source for cheap apps for this thing and we are sorted
thank you, i have taken the plunge too... couldn't resist it for the price of a meal out i have got something that will be educational and will be useful for a few years (hopefully)

Just got one of these in asda for £15, had a couple of games in for £5 each too
ordered thank you xx
Thanks OP - ordered one yesterday for my son. Great deal.....heat added!
Bought this a few weeks back at £20 - there are 9 categories of apps to choose (visit the leapfrog app store and click on the leapster GS tab) -

Games
Learning Videos
Music
Creativity
Just for Fun
eBooks
Foreign Languages
Flash Cards
Expansions

You have to go through each category to see what might appeal to you/your children. I found the very cheapest ones seemed to be more appealing for the very young, also I wanted to go for the most educational ones so I've gone through all of them (and yes it took a while!) and made a list, when I see them on a special offer I'll get them (app or cart). I've only bought apps (no carts) so far directly from them with the offer of buy 4 for 3 . You can view demo's of them - this really is a must. My children absolutely love the camera/video functions - if you look under the creativity category you can buy an app for additional activities. In my opinion, the Leapster GS is worth it at around the £20 mark - but not £30+. We use rechargeable batteries which get changed over every other day or so. Also, it's a shame there isn't a wrist strap - because it's often carried around the house etc when using the camera/video function, I decided to thread through an old mobile phone strap thingy where the stylus is.

Find a friend with a leapster or leappad too, you can share the apps with upto 3 units which was great for us. x

I learned this the hard way in september x
Brilliant ordered pink
im not too fussed that i paid 99p for the freebies...i put it on both leap pads for that so still a bargain...ill spread the word to others that they can get them free now though
I'm glad the words spreading. I am so annoyed some people are selling free codes. I nearly bought them so thanks, googled and got them free:)
steedam

i got a code for 2 games for 99p on ebay too (alphabet stew and another)



You were conned, the code is FREE.

Anyone can sync up their Leapster GS with their PC and redeem the codes:

5813-0790-4610-4973
5813-1140-1518-1413

These gives you Alphabet Stew and The Book of Super Awesome stuff and don't seem to expire (they've been valid for over a year).

EDIT: Sorry, didn't see that someone already pointed it out.
