What Is Leapfrog Leapster?

The Leapster remains a Portable Handheld Gaming System

Leapfrog Leapster,  for ages 5-14. It remained first released on October 7, 2003, with a new model design in 2005 and the L-Max with A/V connections that same year, Leapster TV in 2006, Leapster2 in 2008, Leapster Explorer in 2010, and finally the LeapsterGS Explorer in 2012. The Leapster line remained discontinued around 2012 when LeapFrog’s LeapPad tablets remained released.

Early versions of the Leapster L-Max had the logo from 2001-2004. Later versions used the 2004-05-2007-2008 stamp. All Leapster use four AA batteries, except the LeapsterTV, which uses four C batteries.

If there is no input to the Leapster for several minutes, it will automatically turn off to save power. It will also automatically turn off at the end of the Leapster versions of The Letter Factory and Talking Words.

The Leapster will Also Automatically Turn off When the Battery Gets Very Low.

Instead, the unit goes into a black screen when the batteries are low and honks. The noise quickly two times, then from the bottom, a standard battery symbol and a “!” flashes as a reminder to change the batteries.

When very low or critical, it crashes the game to a black screen, issues the warning with a loud horn sound, displays a solid red “X” instead of a “!” on a dead battery, and then turns off.

 It Says Nothing

Only with cartridges can the low battery UI be changed (likely like Foster Home for Imaginary Friends, Backyardigans). If the unit turns up the volume controls when adjusting the noise, the ending makes a “(Wii)” sound effect. If the Leapster thinks you have an incompatible cartridge, turning it on with an incompatible Leapster cartridge will create a ‘ding-ding’ sound and flash a ‘?’ in every second. It doesn’t say Oops!” That’s not a jump cartridge! If you try to tilt a cartridge. It will make gurgling sounds. The circuit will bend or freeze!

Leapfrog Leapster 2

If your kids are bugging you about a hold gaming machine but are scared about the educational value, then the Leapster 2 might be the best option here. It is undoubtedly a robust unit that stands out, although for the price we could wish for a better screen and more variety of titles.


The Leapster 2 gaming system is much like a Gameboy Advance on steroids. Serious steroids have not only enlarged the unit to a significant degree but, in the case of our review unit, also turned everything green, with blue grips to boot. A pink and purple team is also available.

While the Design in Either Color is a Bit Flashy,

it’s also pretty sensible as the situation remains designed as an educational toy for kids, and kids too often aren’t that picky about games and toys. The Leapster 2 uses two main methods of navigation and control within its educational games; either a directional pad and two buttons labelled A (the most prominent and most frequently used button) or, unsurprisingly, B. There are also buttons to pause, repeat prompts, go to the main home screen, and adjust the brightness and volume of the screen. The button. The other method used for input stylus, and with the prospect that kids are likely to miss anything nailed down, the stylus is attached via a loop base of the Leapster 2 and inserted into a socket top.


This product was fully discontinued by 2008 and replaced by the more advanced Tag Reading System. In addition, LeapFrog’s gaming consoles include the Leap’s TV, GS, and L-Max.
