    This toy is cute. My son calls him puppy. I would love to say that this toy is great. It has nice interactive features, and it had my son's not so common name in its database. But I am a bit disappointed with the memory. It is supposed to hold 5 books, which is already limited, but when I went to load the books I have on the "puppy" he only could hold 4 books. Needless to say I will not be purchasing new books anytime soon, because I do not want to have to plug the toy into the computer every time my son wants to read a new book. This was a gift, and I do like it. I probably would not have purchased it myself as I do not think that the value is there. There are pretty great reading apps for tablets that my son enjoys just as much. They are free. I already have the tablet so it is a better deal for me. If you want your child to have the same experience that a tablet offers but with a physical book, then this would be the closest thing. It is very cute, just not convenient.

    My SIL was the one who introduced me to this product and my son loves it. My 3 yr old son loves being read too but he also loves the independence of being able to go get his books and read to himself. I love the TAG JR. because he can turn it on and off himself and when I cannot read to him he can still enjoy a good book. I also love the fact that now when we take long car trips to Nana's house (3 hour drive) he reads books. I just got my younger sister hooked on it also. Her daughter had one but she wasn't sure how it worked (my sister did not realize how easy it was to download the books, etc.) I showed her recently and her daughter loves to read her books to her mommy. In fact my neice is no longer a 'must have DVD on while in the car' kind of kid anymore. I too wish it held more than 5 books...but really 5 books is plenty for my son to carry around in his bag. You can change out the books that are downloaded in the TAG JR. so it is like have new books all the time.

    I got this at Christmas for my 18 month son. He LOVES this thing. He is playing with it as I type and enjoys hearing his name as he turns it on and off. The size is perfect for his little hands and very durable! He has dropped it down on our hardwood floors with no damage done to Tag. I find it easy to load the books on and I like that it shuts off automatically if he doesn't turn Tag off. It did take a few minutes for the initial account set up with Leap Frog but now it starts up as soon as I attach it to my laptop. Even though the back can be hard for me to line back up, I'm so glad the usb is tucked where he cannot get his fingers too. Thank you for a great product!

    The Tag Junior Scout Pal doesn't have enough memory for all the books. My daughter will have to pick and choose the books that Scout will read to my grandson. When I went to the Leap Frog website, I saw that it shows that you can put all the books on the pal...well, it doesn't. I bought several books, but can only put in a few so my grandson can read with his pal, Scout. It has nothing to do with Walmart - got a good buy on the books and the pal - Leap Frog needs to make more memory for the pal.

    This LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal- Scout is adorable. Not only is it adorable but it is perfect for my 3 year old who loves books and wants me to read to him all the time. This allows him to place "Scout" the little dog on top of each word and the dog Scout says the words aloud. This enables him to see the word and hear the word. Hopefully, he'll learn to read at an early age and I think this is a great way to start and it makes the child feel more independent. The child actually feels they're doing this on their own and it's great to do lap time reading each and every day. It's very important because it not only creates a bond between the child and parents but with this fun technique it really gets them further interested simply because it's fun. Not only educational but fun and teaches them independence and they feel as if they're reading the book on their own. It's vital to take 10 minutes out of our busy days as parents and use this reader. It will truly make a difference in how they learn. I studied Early Childhood development and I believe in this product. Also, there are other books that you can purchase separately so you'll have a small library of exciting books. This package comes with one book which is great. I recommend purchasing the kit and trying it out with your child and if he/she enjoys it; which they will, simply because they're reading it with you. Once you've read the book multiple times it may be time to purchase more books so that they don't get bored with the same book. It's a VERY reasonably priced reader and the additional books are also reasonably priced. Great product! I'm all about educational toys and games and this is a great one!

    I don't understand the choice for only 8MB of storage on the device... How much does flash memory really cost these days. I can fit nearly all the books we have at one time. Last night my daughter was going to read some before bed, but the books weren't loaded. So, I hooked up the tag reader to the computer and LeadFrog Connect software had to update, and then the tag reader had to be updated. Then I was finally able to attempt removing/added books. However I could not get it to work. After about 20 minutes of frustration I discovered you cannot add and remove books at the same time. First I had to remove the books, then let the reader reboot so I could add the new books. Not very intuitive... Overall I think the concept and the way the reader works is great, not to mention my daughter loves it. It does have some room from improvement both on the software side and hardware size, though.

    Overall, this is a good product. The main issue that I have with it, however, is that it does not "read" each word individually as the Tag does. Instead, the Tag Jr. reads entire pages at a time, which sort of defeats the whole purpose of helping a child to connect what is being read to the words on a page. Here is the good and the bad: The pros: Easy for little hands to hold and use; Books are board books which are perfect for young toddlers; Ability to personalize product with child's name; Volume control; Easy to understand. The cons: Does not "read" one word at a time but the whole page; If put back down onto the page in the middle of "reading" it will start over from the beginning - somewhat confusing for a young child; Only holds audio for 5 books at a time; Short books are expensive; Downloads can be time-consuming; Not compatible with Tag books.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    This is a great toy for a child who can't quite read yet but loves books! It certainly can't replace being read to my a real person, but my 2.5 year old daughter loves it. We bought the set if short vowel books to go with it. Great value for a great educational toy! My only issue is the screw that holds the battery strips out VERY easily. It's plastic and not sturdy plastic. Use a quarter instead of a screwdriver.
