Best games for Leappad?
April 26, 2012 9:58 AM   Subscribe

My 5 (near 6) year old daughter is in love with her Leap Frog Leapad, which she got for Easter. She especially loves the photo features and pet that comes with it, as well as a Tinkerbell book and Dora game. She's wondering if she can have another game though - which we'd happily get her, but as they are rather expensive we'd like to get a good one that's worth it. So, what are the best Leappad and compatible Leapster games? OUR PREFERENCE: Educational, particularly reading skills. HER PREFERENCE: Angry Birds. Hmm, maybe not kid...

My 5 year old, who is currently obsessed with his DS, will still occasionally pull out his Leapster just to play Mr. Pencil Saves Doodleburg. It seems to be the one game he never got tired of.

Used games can be found on eBay.

I came here to suggest Mr. Pencil Saves Doodleburg too. My 5 year old son has played it over and over and over. He also likes the Pixar Pals one, but Mr. Pencil Saves Doodleburg is #1.

I think that Angry Birds could be good in limited amounts. It might be waaaaaaaaaay above her head, but it'd be a good starting point to talk about math, physics, and the like.

Oh, trust me, she gets enough Angry Birds on other platforms.
