When my son was 4, I — or rather Santa — brought him a Leapster. His aunt and uncle purchased a couple of games. It was the toy I took a gamble on. He had asked for a Spiderman playset and a castle, but not the Leapster. I made the “leap” because he had spent a few months admiring/begging to use his sisters’ Nintendo DS. There was no way he was ready for a Nintendo DS, but the Leapster looked sturdy and educational.
At 6 years old, he still plays the Leaspter. It’s perfect for car trips or quiet moments at home. He started with a couple of easy games, for example, Leapster® Learning Game: Cars and Leapster Go Diego Go!
but has moved on to games like Leapster Arcade: Number Raiders.
I — or rather my son — had the chance to play with Leapster: My Amusement Park. This game is ages 6-9. The suggested retail price is $24.99 and it is available in stores now! His verdict: Awesome. He’s a person of few words!
The game features thinking games to build and maintain attractions, customization of rides and food venues, game booths that feature 3 fast-paced arcade style games, a bank with money to keep the park running smoothly, and helpful hints and tutorials.

– What age did you first start playing electronic games? I’m going to date myself by saying that my first game was the arcade game Ms. Pacman in the 80s.

I first started playing on the Atari 400. My favorite game was Joust.
I actually didn’t play electronic games at all growing up…we were po’. 🙂
Probably the first game I ever played was online jeopardy as an adult.
I’d love to win this game for my son! We’re giving him the Leapster2 for Christmas and he’d love this game.

I guess it was around 1987 when I got my first Nintendo
