My son's father bought it for him for his fourth birthday. He fell in love with it on sight, and has played with it till he fell asleep. I love that it reads the stories to him, so he doesn't have to ask someone to help him. I saw him drop it multiple times, but it managed to get away without a scratch. It also teaches him what words mean and highlights, so he can understand what words are being said. The games also help, helping him with his spelling. The only downside I have seen so far is that if you don't use brand new batteries, they die very quickly.
