What LeapFrog product do you reccommend for a 4 1/2 year old?

I want to get my daughter a Leapster or Leapfrog product for Christmas. She is 4 1/2 years old, and can already read, write, and spell her own name as well as other small words. She is very good with a computer and follows directions well. I want to get her an educational, learning video game for Christmas, but I don't want her to be too advanced for it, or have the game be too advanced for her. Any suggestions?!

  • i would rather spend the time working on reading and writing than shoving a "game" in my childs hand... it's obvious that she loves to learn, so why not find a book or activity she can do WITH someone?
