Handheld math game?

Does anyone know if there is a handheld math type game that would do addition/subtraction that would similar to the leapfrog type games for ABCs?

Dd2 is finally starting to show an interest in her ABCs thanks to a couple of leap frog game type things. Dd1 is always asking why we don't get her the fun learning games - because they are all too simple for her. She's 7 and has been reading at a 5th grade reading level since preschool. The only thing she kind of needs work on is subtraction. She knows her subtraction but is slow on her timed tests. So I thought if there was a handheld thing that did subtraction she'd be tickled we bought her a game for once.

We have ipad apps and computer games for subtraction. She just wants a handheld thing that is actually for her.

Does the leappad go older than the leapster? We have a leapster but dd1 has outgrown the educational aspect of all the games ( she plays them for funstill sometimes). I'm looking for something that would do 1st and 2nd grade level math.

You can set it for pre-k through 6th grade.
