Bought it for my grandson who hasn’t seen it yet. Seems like a good product. My only complaint about the product is the tiny viewing screen where the characters pop up. Really? My issue was in the download process. Not easy for the average adult.I would give it more stars otherwise.
Wish I had know this needed to be connected to a computer before you can actually use it. Very disappointed that we have a toy that is completely useless since we do not have a pc. Highly dissatisfied. This was a gift, how can it be returned?
We bought the Leap Start in the hopes that it would encourage our preschooler to develop prewriting and listening-to-directions skills. It's doing both those things beautifully. Using the stylus is helping him get more comfortable using crayons and pens - which he oddly hates - and he's getting tons of practice listening to directions as he plays the various games. This is really the only toy we've found that he wants to use that does these things. Fabulous!
Mac users beware!!!! The reason I'm giving this device only 3 stars is because it took me nearly 8 hours to set it up. The interface for Macs - in a word - sucks. We're running Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4. The Leap Start software does not work well with this operating system. You will need to take several additional steps to get the system to function. Most of these steps are listed on the Leap Frog website. However, we followed these directions carefully and still could not get the software to run. We ultimately discovered (by chance) that we needed to install the driver separately - even though it appears installed and you can find it on your HD after downloading the main package.
Setting this up was nothing short of irritating!! However once I finally got it to work, my daughter does love it and it does work well. However it’s quite annoying that you can only have a certain amount of books downloaded at one time.
This is a great learning tool for toddlers and preschoolers. My kids like watching the small screen for their favorite characters to appear when certain parts of the book are activated. All of their favorite characters; Trolls, Disney Princesses, Scout & Violet. You do have to plug in the LeapStart into your computer after each new book you receive so just make sure you don't lose the small USB cord that comes with the unit.
