I'd probably get the Leapsters myself. My DD is 6 and not reading and struggles with quite a few of the DS games. She still plays her Leapster a lot and gets a lot of use of it.

Or wait and see what the Leapster GS is when more info is out.
Thanks for pointing this out! My son is 6 also and still a budding/struggling reader. So, this makes a difference for him. Maybe we will get them all the Leapsters (the cheapest of the games I've seen) and then see how it goes for the year. Maybe he can get the DS for next Christimas after mastering this one. I spoke with my husband last night and he is on-board for the idea of getting something.
