Re: Hand held "gaming system" for kids
While my kids love their Leapster Explorer...for the same amount of money, you can get an ipod touch, and the apps are free or cheap, and it plays Netflix if you have WiFi. My kids like it even more than the Leapster.
The prob with Leapster is that the pad is $100, and games are 20-25 each so you've got a lot of money tied up in something they will not use that long. But a ipod touch they can use for years and continue to upgrade for cheap.
