By S. Rowley on September 21, 2005
I bought this to use on my regular Leapster and it worked just fine. My 4 year old son is learning to write letters in his Pre-K class and this just excited him beyond belief. He sits there for hours tracing those letters and he is so proud of himself when he is done!!! I am amazed because my son usually NEVER sits still unless he's watching TV. This has replaced our watch TV before you go to bed time...now he gets in bed and draws his letters.

The most important thing about this is it teaches them to draw their letters CORRRECTLY. Start at the top and go down...etc. All educational experts Iv'e talked with say that it is essential to get then doing it right. PLUS, unlike the letter factory (which I loved) it also teaches lowercase letters which I have come to find out that those are what they need in Pre-K and K.

Thank you Leapfrog for encouraging my son to enthusiastically learn and challenge himself.

What fun and what an excellent learning tool. If you are familiar with Leapfrog's Alphabet Videos, then you should know that "Letters on the Loose" builds upon those experiences. Tad and the gang aren't here, but Professor Quigley is and he directs the action.

**What You Get**

There are two games on the cartridge. The letter hunting and writing game, and another bonus game which is only available when the LMAX is hooked up to the television.

Bonus Game -- In the bonus game, Professor Quigley puts on a robotized suit and shoots through a vertical maze. You are told to gather either capital or lower case letters. It's fun but requires quick decision making.

Letter Learning Game -- This game teaches uppercase and lowercase letters, their sounds, and it allows children to practice their letter writing.

Note: Others have commented on how `perfect' you have to write the letters and how annoying this requirement is-well LEAPFROG must have heard them because we have not found this to be the case. My daughter's handwriting is anything but perfect (though it's improving) and the LMAX accepted any `decent' attempt of hers to follow the dotted lines.

Plus, and I would never tell this to my kindergartener, you can actually practice writing using your finger on the writing screen. Now I don't want her doing that, but it *is* great practice for my younger preschooler son. [In fact, this is something that is used by some teach-at-home writing systems that have young children use sand to practice.]

**Pros**

--The letter writing portion of these games is just awesome. My daughter now loves to practice her letters (had to drag her screaming to a piece of paper-LOL), and likes adding them to her book of letters.

My daughter (age 4) fell in love with this cartridge immediately -- which is great. She completed an ABC book after just a couple of hours with breaks. It's good writing practice and more forgiving, I think, than the writing portion of the Disney Princess cartridge. The games; however, are not all that demanding or educational. For instance, one game, the player tickles a gorilla while he says the "g" sound. So what? Some of the games are better than others, though, and I suppose not every one of them must be of high educational value. I do think that this is aimed slightly more at preschoolers than kindergarteners, which benefits us for the time being. Overall, very good and entertaining, but not a "must-have", especially if your child already knows her letter sounds.

Best thing we ever purchased was the Letters on the Loose and Leapster L-Max. My son entering kindergarten loves the Leap Frog Letter Factory video, word factory video and Leap Pad but this is on a whole new level. He can listen to professor Quigley and interact with a Video type game that shows how to write his letters then lets him write the letters on the screen with the accompanied pen. After he writes each letter it is stored in the memory book of his handwritten letters. If he is plugged into the TV he may then view and display for the whole family the great book of letters he is working on. There is a game to catch capital or lower case letters that arer specified differently each time he plays and animated letters play a game that asks you to do different tasks that help with hand eye cowardination and letter recongnition/phonics. We love it!! Kudos to Leap Frog again. Searching for the number Zero next to help him with Math Skills.

This cartridge is a fun and an excellent learning tool. This particular cartridge focuses on Leapfrog's DVDs, then you should know that "Letters on the Loose" builds upon those experiences. Tad and the gang aren't here, but Professor Quigley is and he directs the action.

My son is entranced by the games. I have to say this one is his favorite!!! He loves the letter hunting and writing game. Even though he learned his letters and how to spell and write his letters early, this still helps him get BETTER at it.

He also likes the bonus game on the TV. Professor Quigley puts on a robotized suit and shoots through a vertical maze. You are told to gather either capital or lower case letters. It's fun but requires quick decision making. At first he wasn't too quick but now he zooms through it!!

The Letter Learning Game teaches uppercase and lowercase letters, their sounds, and it allows children to practice their letter writing. What's great is the catchy tunes. My son sings A says aaaa, B says bbbb...which has helped him join letters together to spell words. I must admit, it drives me nuts at times but he's so proud of himself that he knows this.

My son does get frustrated while tracing the letters and numbers. If it is not within the perfected lines, it makes you do it all over again. I know it forces the child to be more precise, so it's not really a complaint. His handwriting has improved somewhat.

The only thing that we are not crazy about and doesn't make sense is that when the LMAX is connected to the TV you have to use the button on the pen to make the pen work. Without the TV you just have to touch the pen to the screen to enter a choice. My almost 4 year old son had difficulty at first but now he has the concept.

I would suggest you adding this to your Leapster Library...it is a great educational toy. My son loves it, what else can I say!!!
