Leapster Explorer

LeapFrog offers up an entertaining way to get educated with it's new Explorer Learning Games for Leapster. The hand held Leapster Explorer ($64.99) is targeted at children ages 4-9 with games that challenge all ages.

I admit it: I'm a game junkie. I love board games and video games and I especially love to play them with children when the manufacturers put in an educational twist. As a former preschool teacher, I understand the impact games can have on children and also how ANYTHING can be fun if you make it into a game.

LeapFrog seems to understand this too with it's Explorer Learning Games like Disney Princess Pop-up Story Adventures ($12.49) for pre-k to 1st graders. You can choose which character you'd like to play, either Belle or Cinderella. Mini-games are unveiled as a narrator reads parts of the story. Focusing on letters, phonics, spelling, and logic, this game is a superb choice for any little lady entering school. With summer dwindling down, there's still time for some roadtrips. This system is perfect for those times in the car (train or plane) and let's your little one practice at their own speed.

The handheld games are powered by traditional batteries (we'd love to see them become rechargeable) and can be hooked up to your household computer. Head to and you can download more games onto download cards ($14.99)

Skin Perfected with the Le Mieux Ultrasonic Facial Tool

No lie – I love a good skincare gadget, but I’m pretty particular about what makes the cut. First and foremost, it has to work. It has to do something for my skin that is worth the time to use the device and the money to buy it in the first place. Second, I really hate products more
