The Leapster Learning Game System is an educational handheld game console aimed at 4 to 10 year olds (preschool to fourth grade), made by LeapFrog Enterprises.

Along with a directional pad, the system features a touchscreen with a stylus that enables young users to interact directly with the screen.
