Mr. Pencil Saves Doodleburg Learning Game is compatible with all LeapPad Kids’ Learning Tablets and LeapsterGS

As with all LeapFrog original learning games, Mr. Pencil Saves Doodleburg is created by educational experts and designed using innovative gameplay for a deep, effective and engaging learning experience. Mr. Pencil Saves Doodleburg gameplay is designed to help children build foundational letter writing skills linked to future reading success. Recommended for children ages 4-7 years old.


Teaches:
  • Number writing: Children learn to write numbers using proper stroke order.
  • Letter writing: Children use knowledge of letter names and shapes to write both uppercase and lowercase letters.
  • Shapes: Children learn to recognize the defining properties of shapes (such as a square having four sides of equal length and a triangle having three sides) and identify them in different rotations.
  • Art and drawing: As they draw, children develop spatial reasoning, visual acuity, and hand control, which later helps them write letters.

From the Manufacturer

Learn how to write letters and numbers and create art as you help Mr. Pencil and his friends save the town! Works with the Leapster Explorer and LeapPad Explorer systems.

I purchased this game for $24.99 before email discount directly from the Leapfrog website for my grandson's 4th birthday. He has been playing games on the computer at school, laptop at home and my iphone,so we thought he was ready for a system he could play on his own. I thought this game would help teach him how to write and draw. He can already recognize his letters and numbers. He stayed home sick from pre-K today and his mom said he was content to play this game for a good portion of the day. He chose to play Mr. Pencil over Toy Story 3 and Dora! Great gaming system for a preschooler. Would recommend you sign up on the Leapfrog website to get their emails so you can take advantage of their email discounts, too.

Verified Purchase
We got the new Leapster Explorer for our 3 year old for his birthday. I know he is a little young, but he always wanted to play vidoe games at the same time as his 5 year old brother, and it had just been released. This was one of the 2 initial games I bought for him, and what a good choice it was. He has always liked to color and draw and has always seemed to be more deliberate when he is creating than his older brother. Let me tell you this was one of the best purchases I ever made. He will sit and play with this game for quite a while, which is out of character for him unless he is truly engaged. This game focuses on repairing the town with Mr. Pencil and teaches kids to draw, beginning with straight lines, etc. I would really recommed this title as one of the first you get for younger kids with the Leapster Explorer, especially if they like to color. It's a really good first step, as it requires no letter or number recognition (reading/math) so you can start them really young, but it does progress into those areas.

I have played this game to check out what my son would be playing and I can see why he gets frustrated. The game freezes for 30 seconds at times (Yes, I actually timed it)and it can be too sensitive for someone learning to write. I have watched my son try to draw on the dotted line and if he barely gets off the line it makes him start the entire drawing over. Love the game idea and really like what it teaches but it needs some improvements.

Please do not purchase this item if your child is left-handed. As it is not left-handed friendly!!!! It forces the child to write as a right-hander. The concepts are great though! I called them. I hope they will make the appropriate changes

My son is pretty advancd for his age and recently received the Leapster Explorer for his 3rd birthday. It's literally the only game he plays! It's a super cute game that lets the kids "fix" the town after a tornado and storm come through and destroy everything. Your child "fixes" each area of the town (town hall, the park, race track, clock tower, library, etc) by drawing the needed shapes, letters, numbers, or coloring in different items (on this one they are told to choose a specified color from the color wheel then color in an item completely). The game doesn't allow a sloppy letter/shape, coloring job to pass (well not really "pass" but i dont know how else to explain it.) It will tell the child to either "keep the stylus on the screen" or to "stay close to the dotted line" which ever the issue was. therefore the child knows IMMEDIATELY what they did wrong and how to fix it. It is a little forgiving on some things (for instance you can draw a circle on the hexagon shape and it'll pass) which is to be expected since some kids are still very young. The voices can be kind of annoying to my ears but my son loves them :) My only complaint so far is that since my son is predominantly left handed, his left hand touches the screen a lot while he's drawing or coloring... which the game recognizes as him "being off the dotted line" which frustrates him when he knows that he IS on the dotted line, therefore i have to kind of hold his hand up a little or tilt the Explorer a little so his hand isn't touching. But that is so rare that it isnt a huge complaint at all. OH and after the child "fixes" a certain part of the town they can go back into it and it is a interactive coloring page.Read more ›

My son just turned 4 and loves this game.It has taught him so much.Most of all I love that it teaches the kids to form there letters correctly.He has learned how to write most of his letters and he has learned his numbers.I tryed teaching him the correct way before this game but he kept wanting to form the letters his own way.So I am very glad I purchased this.Way to go leap frog!!! This Game is AWESOME!!!

My 5 and 6 year old daughters have been playing this game for about a week or so now, and so far it holds their attention very nicely and they really seem to enjoy playing it. Of all the cartridge games that we bought (we also have Disney Princess, Kai-Lan, and Penguins of Madagascar), this one and Penguins are probably about tied for the best in regards to playability and being educational.

My son received this as a gift for his 4th bday this weekdend. He has oonly been playing it for a couple days but absolutely loves it. I think his favorite part is the art gallery where he can create his own pictures. Also the games which teach him how to draw vetical and horizontal line and then curved lines. It sounds simple but the kids have to follow the dotted line so it helps their hand control. Basically you travel throught he town and help repair the buildings such as Firehouse, school, fountain etc. Some of the games get a little challenging after the first couple rounds. He cracks up laughing at Mr. Pencil as he does lots of silly things like fall down, try to flip and land on his back etc during the animations in between levels. I almost returned this for Toy Story but the reviews on that one aren't as good and he is having a blast with this one so it is definitely a keeper.
