As a dad, I have a tendency to gravitate towards toys for my son that have a geeky bent to it. It’s the same reason why I love Leapfrog’s Leapster2.
My son already has the first Leapster but I think the Leapster2’s features are quite nifty. It now sports SD card support, better graphics, and a USB connection to a PC. This new connection allows you to connect the device to a PC and download more games as well as play online. There is also a rewards system that you can “redeem” online. The Leapster2 is also compatible with Leapfrog’s Learning Path.
The whole service will go live this month… and I’ll probably sell of my son’s Leapster and upgrade to Leapster2.
