This new and improved handheld gaming system can be thought of as an educational Game Boy -- so fun that kids don't even know they're learning. More than 300 games will be available by the end of the year, LeapFrog says, keeping kids bouncing from one visually-stunning game to the next. It's easy for kids to handle and game-levels are selected automatically by tracking the child's learning progress. An added bonus: the device runs all previous Leapster Explorer games and apps.
