Leapster 2 question

Posted by on Dec. 14, 2009 at 1:49 PM

My mom is getting my DD a Leapster 2 for christmas, but she can't afford to buy her a game.  We've already spent our christmas budget before we knew she was getting it so we can't afford to buy her game either.

So the question is does this thing come with any games built in, or is it just a paper weight until we can afford to buy her a game?

Just looked on the boxes(our boys are each getting one for Christmas too lol); and it says 2 games are included.  so I'm guessing they are just installed on the game like with the original Leapster.

Thanks.  I sure hope they're at least decent games because we probably can't afford to buy her one until her birthday in March..  :-\  I wish my mom would have thought about this before buying it!

My dd had the old Leapster and it came w/ demo games and some learning things like painting, ect. It will keep her entertained until she gets a new game that's for sure.. My 7 yr old sometimes takes her game out just to play the other things it has on there.. GL and I'm trying to figure the same thing  out for the Leapfrog Diji because that's what I'm getting my 6 yr old for X-mas and I was wondering what it has built into it already..I'm getting her a 5.00 game though, they have some pretty cheap games if you take a peak on "leapfrog.com" they are having a HUGE sale going on right now and that's where I'm buying my dd's stuff from and shipping is FREE! =)

I'm so mad at them!  LOL  I went to that site for cyber monday; got AWESOME deals, tons of stuff, even had a coupon code I found online.......total was about 1/3 of what it normally would have been......

And then find out they don't ship to APO boxes. :-(  GRRRRRRRRRRRR

LOL...that's ok.  It's Army Post Office.  We are stationed in Germany; so our mail goes to an APO, so that it costs the same as sending in the US.  Unfortunately a lot of vendors won't ship overseas. :-(

Here is what google came up with for coupons!
