  • Does anyone know if the Leapster GS would be too childish for an almost 8 year old? If so, what Leapster products would you recommend for her? Thanks for your help.

    • Angie says:

      My daughter is 8 and I would not buy any Leapster products for her. We have the Leapster, etc. but they are not “cool” or old enough for her. She likes the ipad, DS and she is getting an ipod touch for Christmas. I looked through the Leapster items for sale but I couldn’t find anything even for my 6 year old. It is sad that they are beyond this now. Sigh. Where did the time go?! But I am picking up some things for my under a year niece. I would go older if I were you.

    • Erin says:

      Totally agree–we also have Leapster 2 and Tag readers, plus a good 20 games and 30 books, and my son was done with them by age 5. It’s not so much the cool factor for him as that he’s just outgrown them. I would say they are really preschool type toys.

  • Ann says:

    ipads are where it’s at even for the little ones.

  • Julie says:

    Anyone know why the $5 off code from Retailmenot is not working. It’s supposed to be $5 off 50. I used it a bunch of times over the summer on clearance items and now it seems it doesnt apply to anything? Just wondering if anyone knows what it works on. I tried it on clearance baby clothing and on the deal Collin just posted, Im so sad it’s not working.

  • Cara says:

    The promo code worked on a $19.89 item for me — so you don’t have to get to exactly $19.99 for it to work:)

  • Emily says:

    The LeapPad is driving me crazy!! I don’t know if I should hold out for a better deal or go ahead and buy @ the $50-60 range. UGH!

    Anyone else holding out for a better price?

    • Lynn702 says:

      Not sure which LeapPad you’re looking for but Walmart will have the Leapster 2 for $20 during their BF deals. You may even be able to snag one on Cyber Monday if you aren’t heading out for BF.

    • Cristal says:

      Same boat, seeing them so much cheaper at Kmart but missing out I now don’t want to pay $50-60. I may regret but for now I’m holding out.

      • Julie says:

        There is not that much of a difference between this and the Kmart offer because you are getting the cover that is worth $10. That makes this $40.99 and you’ll get an extra 5% if you are a Target cardholder, so $38.99 shipped to your door. Seems like the same deal to me, but with a company this is much more customer friendly!

        • Erin says:

          The gel skin is supposed to be free, so not the same deal, though you are getting something extra (but also paying extra). But Target is definitely more customer friendly!

    • Erin says:

      For what it’s worth, I am already regretting the one I bought at Kmart. It will go cheaper, BUT it will be nearly obsolete. Leapfrog is notorious for their “upgrades” that compromise the functionality of their older model products. I wish I had price matched to a store closer to me and gotten the gel skin cover.

      • Emily says:

        Erin– I curious about your comment. I’ve never had any leapfrog stuff so what exactly do you have to do to make it functional if you get an older model. And do you mean an older model as in LeapPad1 vs. LeapPad2 or different models of the LeapPad1.

        • Erin says:

          I was referring to the Tag Readers specifically. When my son was younger, I had two models, an older model (with 16 mb space) and the super-duper, new and improved one (with 32 mb of space, though now they have several subsequent versions). They upgraded their software, which was *required* to load books to the pens. You had no choice but to upgrade. I did, and I lost storage space on the readers, which Leapfrog steadfastly denied. I am no techie, but I knew that between both pens, we could fit all of our books before the upgrade. (It was a pain in the butt to add and remove books, which is why we had two pens.) Afterward, we our books no longer fit, and the software was weird and glitchy, and the pens would not consistently recognize the books that were loaded on it. I went around and around with customer service (which used to be fantastic, by the way) but eventually gave up because my son wasn’t even really using them at that point. Leapfrog also made another game system (sorry can’t remember name) that was kind of the precursor to the Leapster system, though they were in stores simultaneously for a while, and it was terrible. It got horrible reviews and they made only a few games for it before discontinuing it, though they continued selling the stock for a loooong time (I guess because few people were actually buy it). Of course, the well-received Leapster cartridges did not work for the other system, nor vice versa, so if you got the other one, you were stuck. Of course, you could pony up $100 for the Leapster system, but then they upgraded to Leapster 2. Though Leapster 2 games were compatible with the original Leapster, not all the game features worked, and they stopped making plain old Leapster games.

          Basically, you need to look at Leapfrog products as toy computers that will be obsolete quickly, so if your child is really too young for Leappad, you probably don’t want to buy Leappad 1 and save it because you might be disappointed in its functionality by the time he/she is able to enjoy it. Leapfrog used to be a fantastic little company. Now it is large, and in my opinion, they are gouging parents by rolling out new models of every product every year. They just released Leappad last year–in time for Christmas, of course–and now they are releasing the next incarnation, in time for Christmas. They are toys! Do they really need to update the entire product line every year to keep abreast of cutting technology for the techie toddlers out there? It’s all about money.

          • Nicole says:

            Very insightful. I totally agree. I use to have the leapster explorer. It lasted 18 months, by the time it broke the leapster 2 and leapster explorer was out.

  • Tori says:

    I am not waiting .. there is always an option to return, if the deal is that much better. AND…I do believe Target will price match even to Amazon!

  • silver says:

    Whats the difference between this and the LeapPad2??? Or is it better to just buy apps for my ipad for my 3 1/2 year old?

  • N says:

    Anyone know the difference between leappad 1 and 2?

  • Heather J says:

    Does it have to be a single item over $19.99 for this code to work?

  • jiya says:

    anyone please suggest …is it good for 5year old? I want to give this on her b’day. What other toys I can give her?

  • Julie says:

    Use your red card to save an additional 5%

  • Laurie says:

    Targets website SUCKS!!! I thought over the last year they could get it straightened out, but it is slower than slow! It’s giving me a fit! I am ready to get into the car and drive there w/ my 2 kids in tow, b/c it would be faster! Lol!

  • Brandimc says:

    My total came to about $36 dollars (with %20 percent discount and redcard free shipping) and I tried using the code for $5 dollars off, it’s not working. It says the items in my card do not yet meet the requirements.
    I’m trying to buy the birthday candle toy and the picnic basket. Both leap frog. Any ideas?

  • Brandy says:

    I have been looking for a good deal on the the leapfrog leapster gs. This offer made me so excited! My son is 4 and this is the one main gift I wanted to get him for Christmas. This is a round-about $30 savings. I just placed my order and came to a total of $43.70 (also using my target card for the 5% off) Thanks for finding such a great offer!

  • christine says:

    Thank you, Collin!!

  • amber says:

    The $5 off coupon exlcudes Leappad!

  • Loren says:

    Worked perfectly for me! Thanks for another great Christmas gift! $54.05 with Tax and don’t forget to go through Ebates for an additional 2%!

  • Sherri Villarreal says:

    These comments are so helpful-I am new to this site. I want to get Leap Pads for my four year old twins grandkids, and their brother who is seven. His mother thinks he would like it too, but from comments I am reading above it seems he may already be on the old side for it. And the savings is obviously better in the leap pad 1 but would the 2 be worth it for the for 4G and video/camera feature? I’m not sure what else it has that makes it superior. Since I need 3 I am trying to figure out the best option-especially since that doesn’t include any of the extras they will probably want like charger, headphones, apps, etc

    • Erin says:

      I would not get my six year old a Leappad. He uses my Ipad and has computer classes at school, and even if he wasn’t computer literate, I don’t think that the Leappad would hold his interest for long–he outgrew all their products well before the upper threshold of their recommended age range. If I were getting him a tablet computer, I would get him a tablet computer, not a toy. Either a cheapie tablet (with an insurance plan :) )or the pricier Nabi. At around $200, it’s twice as much as a Leappad, but it is a real computer with Internet access and parental controls. The four year olds might get something out of the Leappad, especially if they need some extra help with words, letters, and numbers before Kindergarten. If you are sure that they’d love them or have the money to burn if they don’t, then go with the Leappad 2. If you aren’t sure, save your money and get the Leappad 1. Neither Leappad will grow with them indefinitely, so don’t think long term on them. Another idea might be to get a mid-range tablet as a family gift. It might not be as well received as flashy new toys, but it’s one of those gifts that they’ll probably come to appreciate more as they use it–and if they don’t use it, then they probably wouldn’t have used the Leappad, either, and Mom and Dad get to enjoy it! :) Hope that helps.

  • Nichole says:

    :) ordered two leap pad 1. I figure I have nothing to lose but a trip back to a store I end up at weekly if I find a better deal. Oh and I did two separate purchases to get the $5 off each.

  • Marie says:

    I tried to do two separate transactions, but it wouldn’t let me…Said code had already been used…
