Didj is Leap Frog's system designed for children between the ages of 6 to 10 years old. As children outgrow the Leapster or Leapster 2, this is the next educational video game system they can pick up. I let my son play this to see how it fits the age bracket. He absolutely enjoys the Didj although I find myself leaning slightly towards to the Leapster 2. The Didj does not come with a stylus (or little pen), because there are no touch screen functions.

The Didj has a really good look to it. In fact I like the look of the Didj more than the Leapster or the Leapster 2. The color scheme makes it look more like a video game machine, and less like a toy for children. The screen is bright, and the games exhibit a nice array of colors. The only complaint about the look is it seems a little bulky especially when I look at how compact some other hand held machines are.

The feel of the Didj is good with one small exception. Remember there is no little pen (stylus to come with this machine) right? Well I have had to clean the screen multiple times and remind my son to have clean fingers before touching the screen. The problem was actually on our side because we thought the Didj came with touch screen functions like the Leapster and Leapster 2. The buttons are placed well, and kids can use it pretty easily. Make sure your kids understand there is no reason to touch the screen on the Didj.

The longevity of the Didj has a lot to do with the age of your child. We are starting our son out at the age of six, and expect he will continue to enjoy this for years to come. He is already digging the games we have for it, and the downloadable games also adds to its longevity. I expect Leap Frog will be supporting the Didj quite a few years from now. The machine is durable, and survived the drop tests we put it through.

How worthwhile is learning? I have found learning to be the most important skill to take from school. In fact it is one of the few lessons that had a real world application. The Didj is a great learning tool. The only thing that bothers me is the whole touch screen issue. Maybe I am being myopic, but this machine would be so much more useful if it included one. With that said, learning positive lessons while having fun is what this machine is all about.

Leap Frog is doing parents a favor by releasing the Didj. This machine costs a little more than the Leapster 2, and quite a bit less than the Nintendo DS. The software library is growing for the Didj, and I expect it to continue to do so. If you are looking for a learning machine for your kids, and they are in the right age range, then give the Didj a little look. It has replaced the Leapster 2 in our house.
