  • My 4 year old is bored stiff with the games for the Leapster and absolutely loves his DS.

  • I would go with the Nintendo DS because you can get age appropriate educational games for now and it will grow with her. The leapster has a much more limited range of games and she will out grow the whole system instead of just outgrowing the games which you can trade toward new ones at so many used game stores.
