Please note that there is now leapster 2 out there which is better designed than the original. The chunky console comes with a lead to the mains and 2 games (inbuilt, not catridges). I read somewhere the batteries are used up quickly so I bought 2 rechargeable battery packs, 3 games and 2 carry cases to go with the 2 consoles I got my boys. My boys are 3 and 4 and they are learning double-digit numbers, alphabets and spelling like you wouldn't believe. Very educational game.
