  • We are going to buy them this Christmas for our younger two sons. The Vtech got much better reviews than the Leapfrog Leapster.

    Don't know anything else about them though.

  • My son just turned 3 and we got him the MobiGo for his birthday. It comes with 1 game and the USB cord to plug it into the computer. You can download games on it, however they can only hold 3 games and they are deleted when the MobiGo is turned off so you have to buy a Game Storage cartridge for $20. Once you have the storage cartridge all the downloaded games are saved on there and it holds up to 30. You can download games free for a year.

    My son likes the MobiGo, he plays with it at home, he takes it with him in the car, he plays it when he sits in his stroller while we're shopping. I think it's good because it's entertainment, but it's educational. He has the Toy Story game and it requires him to do a little counting and spelling. Each game can be played in Easy or Difficult too. Hope that helps!

  • I have the mobigo for my two and half year old. He loves it!1 Granted he is a little young to understand some of the educational aspects, but it will grow with him. You can buy a storage cartridge that will save your downloaded games (It holds about 30 games). Each cartridge has 6 games and two levels for each game. Having both the touch screen and qwerty keyboard is really nice too. I give it a 5 star rating :)
