I got this for my almost 2 yr old son and so far he loves it. Just like mentioned, the screen is too dark when you first turn it on but you can go to settings and adjust it and it’s not too bad once fixed. I wish the screen was a bit bigger since it doesn’t really give much space to free draw but overall it’s a pretty good product for the price and my son seems to like it since he’s obsessed w/the abc.
Great concept, poor execution. There is no display light so makes it hard for my kids to see the letters to trace. It’s a shame because we like Leap Frog products but I wouldn’t purchase this one again.
My 3.5yr old was exciting in using toy but got really frustrated with the pen not tracing on the screen. I even tried it and I also had difficulty tracing it. I'm also not happy about the screen not being backlit.
We bought this for our 4 year old's birthday. She loves it! The screen/pencil can have some trouble at times, but honestly I think it is what I expected at this price point. She loves practicing her shapes and letters. It also does some spelling for kids a bit older too. It was great entertainment for her on a recent road trip! I'd recommend this as long as you know that you get a bit or what you pay for and more.
