Learning with Leeper, featuring the long-legged alien creature from Lunar Leeper, is an educational game for children aged 3 to 6 years. The game contains four minigames, teaching young children skills such as number concepts, grouping, eye-hand coordination, shape recognition and matching, and creativity.

- Dog count: The object of the game is to feed the correct number of bones to the corresponding number of dogs.
- Balloon pop: The object of this six-level game is to match the display shape by moving the balloon to the corresponding shape at the bottom.
