My grand-daughter in law and my grandson, who are in the military and live four hours from home, have two kids- a 3 year old and an 8 month old. Their traveling dvd player bit the dust, and driving anywhere long distance with the 3 year old is made much easier and more pleasant for him by playing cartoons and movies. I was visiting them at the time, and bought this system online, picking it out because it also has a small game system included on it. Well, our little guy just loves it! They told me he was just delighted with the game system, as well as being able to watch his favorite Sesame Street dvd's. They said he played the games for four hours straight, and did not want to stop when they arrived at Grandpa and Grandma's house! It helped make a long trip easier for him, by keeping him occupied with simple games. There are 20 games on this, so there are some more difficult ones for him to play when he gets a little older.I would give it a five- my kids are very happy with it and my little guy loves it.
