The screen is very small.

This Laptop is manufactured by a company called MerchSource, and they do NOT answer their phones or offer any sort of online customer support.

I truly felt this was a waste of my money.

We tested 20 different "laptop" toys this Christmas, including several of the Discovery Kids laptops. They all have slightly different games, but they are all essentially the same. In fact, most of them get their LCD screens & game chips from the same manufacturers, so just the packaging is different.

But, we discovered something that surprised us even: Many of these games are recycled from 30 years ago! We have what's called a "V-Tech Smart Start Advantage" (1980, bought it at a garage sale for 25¢), and it has some of the exact same games.

So, two things every consumer needs to know about these laptop toys:

#1) Despite the packaging (whether the toy looks like a laptop, an iPhone, etc), these LCD screen toys are old technologies that don't change, but are being repackaged to look more modern. I predict they will soon repackage the same thing to look like a Kindle, e-book reader, iPad, etc. But it's the same toy from the 1980's.

Which leads to #2: This product is recommended for 6 years+. HOWEVER, if your child has ever seen a REAL laptop, Wii, iPhone, etc., they will get bored with this in 30 seconds. In other words, by the time they're old enough to use the educational games, they will have outgrown the technology. Let me be perfectly clear: If your 4, 5, or 6 year old is tech savvy, they WILL get bored with this. My 5-year-old nephew spent exactly FIVE SECONDS with this, then went back to his train set.

I actually recommend this product for 9-36 months (and give it 3½ stars for that age range). Here's why:

I've already said our 30-year-old V-tech does essentially the same thing. But we were drawn to the Discovery laptop anyway because it looks like a realistic laptop.

I purchased two of these for my granddaughters for Christmas. The item appeared colorful and educational as far as I could tell in the box. When the first granddaughter opened hers on Christmas Eve, I quickly determined that it was junk. The graphics are outdated, not in color, more like something you would have seen twenty years ago. The screen is very small. The construction was weak and wobbly, with the pivoting screen feeling very loose, like it would break off if swiveled too often. Our six year old granddaughter was very excited when she saw what it was and when she took it out of the box immediately lost interest and seemed very disappointed. After seeing this, I was too emabarassed to give this cheesy toy to my other granddaughter, and ran out last minute to buy her something else. Both of these toys will be returned.

The graphics on this are extremely low quality. Some buttons are fake outs and the games and read alouds are inaccurately represented - there is nothing too them of ANY substance. My son walked away after less than a minute. Playing with it myself, I found it to be not only of pathetic quality, but faulty - it told me multiple times I gave a wrong answer though I hadn't pushed a button. This is going back.

I bought this for my 6 year old for Christmas. What a disappointment! The actual LCD screen is small and you can barely read it. It is hard to use because it is so hard to see and read the screen. The graphics on the leap frog toy I bought for my 3 year old are better. The box states "true to life mouse" which is absolutely not true. He couldn't understand why the mouse wouldn't work and we finally had to detach it and say it wasn't a real mouse. It has the potential to be educational with the questions it asks but it is difficult to scroll through the questions. I'm returning this and will not buy Discovery Kids products again.

Product is not a computer... it is a toy and the screen is miniscule... hard to see.... recommend parents look for reasonably priced laptop for their children.... playing with this toy does not enhance the child's skills in any way.

This was given to my 7 year old for her birthday by her very well-intentioned grandparents. It is not a toy; it is a punishment that is shaped like a toy. This is her generation's answer to Sea Monkeys.

She attempted to play with it on the drive home from her birthday party. I repeatedly heard a strained electronic tone cheerfully herald her failed attempts to play a game. Again and again, until she shouted "How do you even use this thing?!" Being a computer programmer, I felt capable of answering. I was so naive.

Navigating the user interface is an exercise in frustration and disappointment. What appear to be buttons are actually stickers. Imagine if your windows start menu was physically painted upon the screen. The lcd is dim and has the viewing angle of a scrambled late night pay-tv channel. The hinge is alarmingly loose. Unlike her stuffed animals, this toy is incapable of sitting upright.

Eventually I managed to figure out how to switch games. These are games only in name. Struggling to stay optimistic, I selected an animal spelling game for her. The toy says the word and implicitly expects you to identify a missing letter from said word. More electronic failure sounds, until she exclaimed "But Ant has an N in it!!" Another examination revealed that the letter N was inoperable. Diabolical!

I solved a couple words and handed it back, saying that maybe it will become fun. A quiet, sad voice announced "The word is bunny and it's missing an N."

People of Amazon, an encyclopedia set would be more fun and educational. This is a toy for naughty children. It is more cunning and devious than a lump of coal, simply because it gives them hope and then dashes it away. It is a lesson in broken promises and harsh truths.
