My daughter loves to create art, including computer art, so we got her this for her 5th birthday. We are really impressed by how much is in this system! I especially like the themes within features such as the backgrounds and stampers, and you can upload your own images as well.

Complaints: It does have some bugs. We have gotten into modes where it seems to respond to the prior command rather than the current one. For example, you click on one stamper and it applies the prior one, or you pick blue and it applies brown. That is quite frustrating but it only happens rarely. Also, the tablet takes a bit of getting used to. I've seen older kids really struggle with it. My daughter picked up on it right away but she has quite a bit of patience.

My daughter has explored many of the features and we have many more to go. I know this will be an enjoyable system for her for a long time. It will adjust with her abilities.

I was really excited when I saw this product. The first two I bought didn't have disks in them, so it was back to the store twice, but on the third try, I was able to install successfully. I didn't really have much trouble with the install (a microsoft blip where it froze while preparing to install, but that's all).

When I tried it, I have to say, I was disappointed. I have a 5 year old and a 3 year old. I thought they'd have a great time with this, but I'm not even sure which functions would be suitable for them. Now, in fairness, they are computer games kids, not crafts kids, so maybe I'm biased.

First, yes, the colouring is great and I can see that being a hit. The dot to dot? No. It's too hard to control the stylus, even for me, let alone a child still working on drawing straight lines in 'real life'. And I can buy them dot to dot books, if that's what they want, for much cheaper than this.

As for the other projects, I really like the calendar function, but it would be of limited use to my kids. The card function is nice, but, again, its of limited use for my little ones. Essentially, most of the projects will need supervision for young kids. I can see this being great for an older child that likes crafts, though.

A couple of complaints:

1. to exit a project, you are asked if you want to print and finish or not exit. There's no option to not print. In my case, I keep the printer off and delete the queue. Then you're asked if you want to save after asking if you want to print. It should be the other way around and you should not have to print every time you leave a project. You should be able to just save it and come back later.

My daughter got this from her grandmother as a 4th birthday present...

I had my reservations about it, due to bad reviews. I was absolutely wrong...this toy is GREAT.

The problem, the way I see it, is that people failed to read the system requirements.

Just because it is considered a "toy", don't automatically assume that your outdated computer will be able to run it.

The application NEEDS a video card with 64MB of ram, and DirectX 9.0c.
Any pc that is able to play any games released in the past few years has WELL OVER these specs. (my current pc has 256MB video ram for example)

(If your pc is 10 years old, this may be a problem...just read the system requirements, just as you would with any other computer software or hardware...right from the box in front of me:
--
windows vista/2000/xp
750mhz processor
256mb memory
64mb video ram
1024x768 video resolution
--

There were no software hangups, etc. The tablet works EXACTLY as advertised, we love it. My 4 year old loves it, my 7 year old had a go with it and had fun, and even my wife and I have been playing with it.

GREAT present for any kid that loves to draw and play...give it a try!

Kids as young as 2 and as old as 10 have used this system in our house. I find myself using it as well. It is so easy to use and really encourages artful expression that is missing in school these days. Printing is very easy and hooking it up once downloading the software is as easy as plugging into the usb cord. Kids 5 and over can work without any help at all. I would recommend getting a cheap printer with cheap ink catridges and set a limit on print outs. Otherwise you will have 20+ printouts after each session!! I like that I can add software to it for more pictures and ideas down the line - this will prolong its life and interest with my kids. Walmart has an animal bonus disc included (retail [...]) and $[...] shipping! I am saving the animal disc for the holidays.\

UPDATE: This is still getting plenty of use in our house and we have downloaded it on our 2nd computer without problems as well. We make thank you cards, teacher notes, decorate photographs and so forth. Lots of longevity in this toy which is rarely seen in my house.

Most of these 1 star reviews are for people who don't check out the box requirements prior to purchasing and they give a false review since they have never even tried the product to review it. How some people can plug it in and play immediately whereas others can't install just shows it is their computer, NOT the toy. Make sure you check your requirements and enjoy!! It is well worth the money.
