I called Leapfrog and got no help since I bought it 4 months ago and the warrantee is only good for 3 months. I spoke with 2 different managers and they just kept repeating the trobleshooting checklist that I had informed them I already tried. It was like talking to a robot. She just kept repeating that checklist. Leapfrog's customer service is a joke in my opinion. They would not help us, or make any exceptions to their policy at all.
They would not exchange, refund, refurbish, or offer a credit on their website where I bought it from. I have seen better offers than that on their website. And those offers are available to everyone. Leapfrog will never make any money off my family again. This was an expensive toy. I pretty much did the equivalent of that. Thanks Leapfrog for ruining what otherwise was a lovely Christmas.

After barely touching the original Leappad, I had been hesitant to buy the more expensive Leapster last year.
But our fears vanished immediately. He adored it and it has seen nearly daily use with fantastic educational games. When the L-max came out this year, he promised it was all he wanted for his birthday. We weren't sure there would be much of an improvement over the leapster, but it's been awesome. They can play on the TV screen so little sister age 3 can watch and learn, too. We bought the letters on the Loose cartridge and it is incredible.
Our little one can even write most of the letters now, though I think most toddlers would be frustrated by this cartridge. Our son is 6 and it's perfect for him as he's struggled with writing up until now. So some kids might be ready for it at 4, but others might be frustrated if they struggle with fine-motor skills. He recently bought the Spiderman cartridge with his allowance and likes that one, too. The old leapster cartridges work on the l-max, but do not show on the TV. The new l-max cartridges will work on the old leapsters, but just normally no tv, obviously.
The L-max screen is slightly smaller than the leapster's, so that's the only drawback other than the price. The l-max is easiest to use if you have a TV where you can plug cords into the front. Most of the cartridge games for the original Leapster work on the L-Max game console with a few exceptions.
The Leapster games are educational and are directed towards children in Preschool to 4th Grade. Letters on The Loose was made specifically for the L-Max and takes advantage of the dual screen feature. Fix Your Stuff. Leapster L-Max Repair. Show Other Languages. Author: and 7 other contributors.
