Rated 5 out of 5 by TiffysMommy Awesome Awesome
We picked this item up for my 34 month old (almost 3), she has set and played with it for about 2 hrs and her tracing skills have improved 10x what they were before. It is awesome for anyone who is beginning hand writing or tracing skills. I want my daughter to have that little bit of advantage which im sure all parents do. But I would recommend this to anyone. So far i have NO downfalls to it, but it has went above our expectations for the toy, i already have this planned for Christmas gifts for a couple other kids i know.
Rated 5 out of 5 by closepin Love it!
My daughter is 3 yrs old and loves to play with this product. You never know if they'll like it or not, but she does. She caught on pretty fast and has done a great job with the tracing the letters. I've worked with her with just paper and pencil/crayon and haven't gotten the success this has done. Highly recommend it!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaJess Good game
This is a great first computer game. It teaches shapes, letters, and encourages drawing. The buttons are easy enough for my 23month old. She likes it, but doesn't really get it yet. My 5 year old plays with it and teaches my 23month old letters and shapes-VERY CUTE!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Armywifenmotherof2 My daughter Loves It
I saw another girl get this for her birthday and all the kids seemed to want to play with this toy. So when my daughters birthday came I decided to get it for her as well. She loves this toy and takes it everywhere we go. Its small and easy to bring any where. I like that its also helping her learn her letters so not only is it fun its educational.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JoJo2006 Needs supervision
I bought this product for my 3 year old because she was having fun tracing over letters I drew at home with pencil. I love the step by step instructions ("start here, then draw a curved line to here"), and the options to learn upper AND lowercase letters, as well as basic drawing such as a zig zag line. My daughter loves the game option where she guesses what letter is showing up dot by dot, then draws the letter, then follows the blinking light to draw a picture such as a balloon or house. Some drawbacks are: (1) even on the lower level the product is very loud, but I fixed this by putting a piece of scotch tape over the speaker. (2) I thought the screen was like a Magna Doodle but it's more like the old fashioned static electricity writing tablets where you draw and then lift up the thin piece of clear plastic to erase your picture. (3) I wish it had numbers to learn to trace as well. (4) Biggest drawback: it can't sense if your child draws the letter correctly, so even if all she does is draw a straight line for a letter "M," if she presses the "paw" button it tells her good job and goes to another letter. That's why the product requires supervision to make sure your child is drawing the letters correctly. I didn't let her play with it on her own (like in her car seat for example) until I saw she was tracing over the lights and not just randomly drawing on it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by 1Gramme2 Age Requirements set a bit low
My grandson had a scribbler that allowed free style draw/writing, he loved it. So when it finally broke I got him this one for his Third Brithday...he wants nothing to do with it. However, I'm so impressed with the features of this writer we're just going to put it up until he starts pre-school in a few months. His sister, age 2, wanted to draw on it, but was quickly fustrated that she couldn't use it like her free style writer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthernBelle1985 Awesome, Fun, Learning toy!
My daughter received this toy as a present for her 3rd birthday, by her 4th birthday she was writing most of her letters. We upgraded to the LeapFrog text and learn for her 4th birthday it is a little bit more challenging but she loves it just as much.
Rated 3 out of 5 by KarinsKeeper My son loves the sounds more than practicing
I thought this little item was ingenious. My son is three and in charter school where he is learning to trace letters. I thought this would be a good way to bring the classroom home with us. While the Scribble & Write is a good way to review letters and sounds, actually writing on the surface is a bit difficult for toddlers. The lights create a bumpy surface that proves to be irritating to my easily frustrated three-year old.
I, on the otherhand, can use it with ease. It might be geared for slightly older children perfecting their letter writing ability.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AECHAM Exceeds Expectations
We recently purchased the Scribble & Write for our 2 year old son. He learned very early to recite and identify the alphabet. Because he is so young, we were only expecting this product to occupy him for a few minutes each day. After 4 days, he was on the path to tracing letters and loving it. This is an excellent learning tool--entertaining and educational.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Niuxi Nice learning tool
I purchased this item for my 5 year old boy and let me tell you that it was a good investment. My son is learning not only how to write down his letters, but also how to sound them out. He is practicing with games his alphabet.
I would recommend this product! It is not expensive and the kids love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bunger418 Great product!!
We bought this for our 3 year old who started preschool, well she loves it and so do we. Its easy to use and has many functions. We have already recommended it to the preschool and would recommend it to anyone with children.
Rated 3 out of 5 by overthehill1 My autistic grandson likes it and was drawing and writing in minutes after opening the box.
The eraser thing sticks if you slide it to far. Not bad for the money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ebula Excellent for Pre-K, and K children
Easy for kids to excel at both letter and number writing. Has both upppercase and lowercase letters and includes games which engage, educate, and enrich your Pre-K or K child.
Great for the car, the store almost anywhere.
Rated 1 out of 5 by PrettyDonna Very unsatisfied.
I bought this for my three year old and I thought it would help me teach him tracing and how to write his letters. And it is a good toy but, no matter what your child writes it will say your child did a good job. It isn't what I expected. I prefer toys that will say try again if my son gets it wrong. I am going to buy the v-tech version of this toy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by imommy4ever Awesome! Worth every penny!
We bought this for my son last year for Christmas. He plays with it daily, he is now 3 1/2 and can write all his letters and can tell you the sound each letter makes. This by far is the best gift we've ever gotten him and would recommend this to anyone! We've bought other LeapFrog products and have always been happy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CabooseTrain Great Teaching Toy
I purchased this for a 4-yr old girl's birthday, and she would not put it down. It's helping her to print her name, learn letters, and more. This is a great teaching toy for those learning their letters.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MomNMarquis1 Leap Frog Scribble & Write
My friend recommended this to me after my son was playing it for a couple of hours. I purchased one the next day online and he loves it. I really think its a great learning tool. It keeps his interest, which is hard to do with a four year old boy and he is also learning how to draw and write his letters. This is very educational and important to me since he will be starting preschool in about 3 months. I am already reviewing other learning products that I saw recommended in the shipping details for when he turns 5 to 8. Its very awesome they have this type of technology for my son to use to boost his learning experience. Thank you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by greatesttwokidsever very educational
this product was great for my 4 year old. he loves to write his letters and draw shapes. this is a great product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ZoesMom032107 Great Idea
This is very cute and a great learning tool. For the price you cant beat it. But let me tell you they are just writting on a water board and they follow the lights then to clean it off you just move the bar across the screen. I thought they would actually be writing on a screen. I still recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by llamamama10 Awesome!!
Got this toy for our little one for Christmas and at 3 months before her 3rd birthday she can already write her own name, "Mama", "Papa" and a bunch of other words!! Best learning toy that I have seen, would recommend it to anyone who wants their little one to start writing!
Rated 4 out of 5 by PiscesMama13 Great Product
I got this for my 5 year old son for Christmas. He loves it, and it is so easy, fun, and educational for him. I definately recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CautiousMommy Absolutely Amazing
This toy is incredible. My son has never liked to sit and learn how to write/identify his letters. He received this toy last week for Christmas and has not stopped playing with it. He is really writing all of his letters and the fact that it shows children how to do it properly is amazing. He loves following the directions with this toy. His favorite "mode" on this toy is guessing the letter. He will sit for 20-30 minutes at a time guessing letters and tracing them. He has even started telling me words that start with the letters that he is tracing. This is truly the best toy ever...just wish that I would have come across it sooner!

My grandson just loves it. He plays with it all the time and it teaches him to write.
Rated 3 out of 5 GOOD
My 4 year old got this for Christmas and has yet to use it. It is a good educational toy and I really think it would help her- I think it's over priced, but I do think it will help her.
Rated 3 out of 5 by GingerbreadGal Behind the times
The product seems to be a bit behind the times as the schools in our area are teaching the children to write D'Nealian (pre-cursive). This doesn't have that option. Also the erase feature is kind of flimsily made. I'd be surprised if that feature is not the first to break on this product.
Plus side: size, voice feature, easy to handle. Includes a stylus and has a feature to trace shapes and play additional letter games.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lilashiepoo I smell a recall...
I picked up this item in the store yesterday while browsing for my son's Christmas presents. It appeared to be a great educational toy and wasn't too pricey. Luckily, I caught a mistake before making it to the checkout line. Upon pressing the "S" button, the computerized voice tells you to start at the top, curve the right and then curve the left. Sadly, no one has noticed that this makes a backwards "S". I immediately put the product down before taking the opportunity to see if this mistake was repeated with any additional letters. I would only recommend this to your child if he/she is dyslexic, in which case it might be of assistance. This may not be a constant issue...but I would check the directions for each letter first before purchasing this item for your child.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Momof2boysandtwingirls This product was to be expected for a Leapfrog item.
Rated 2 out of 5 by mladyraven Disappointed
I ordered this for my grandson for his birthday. It was shipped to the store and picked up before the party. He opened it at the party and the product did not work. No matter what we did or tried we could not get it to work. It was very disappointing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GirlfromNJ I bought this for my granddaughter who recently turned 4. She loves it! She plays with it everyday.
Rated 3 out of 5 by mdadw Good toy, but...
Purchased this for our 3-year-old who has a few developmental issues. Wanted a "game" to help her with writing and recognizing letters. The premise is really promising, but after less than 10 minutes she figured out that she can hit the "paw key" at any time and Scout the puppy will give positive feedback, even if she has not even touched the stylus to the screen.
We have hope that this will develop into a great toy, but at the moment it really isn't giving her the pertinent feedback to help her develop the skills we're hoping to encourage. We hope she doesn't get bored with it before she gets old enough to get some true value from it.
