What all comes in the box? Sep 26, 2013
Not much! A sample book that has a page or two of several different stories/subjects; some Leap Frog themed and some licensed characters (Disney Princess, Cars) and ONE piece of the special "writing paper" which can only be used once. Of course, the "pen/stylus", USB charging cable, and instruction manual are also included. Mine did come with a code to upload an audio book.
Does the leap reader pen actually read to your child or do I have to purchase a leap reader tablet along with this? I am new to all of this! Thanks! May 20, 2014
Yes, the pen will read each word if pointed on the word or if you touch a particular icon it can just read the whole story while child listens along without pointing pen to each word. There are also books that are more interactive and pen can be used to quiz kids on material and they have to select answers on page using pen. Its a good tool to bridge gap before getting kids in habit of tablets and video game mode. That said, it may be transitional period of entertainment. We paid for it knowing our younger child will get use out of it next and we weren't ready for older one to have tablet yet before establishing basic reading skills.
Are the markings made by the LeapReader Pen on the 'magic paper' permanent? Can you do the worksheets over and over or just once?? Nov 2, 2014
Unfortunately they are permanent. I was saddened by this but I guess it's still better than nothing.
Will this fit in the original tag storage case? Or does it have it's own new case for it? Nov 1, 2013
No, I just ordered the storage case and the new pen will not fit within the plastic form. The books still fit of course.
Did you ever get an answer to this? The links above are about tag junior books - not leapreader junior books. Debating whether to buy this for my little one or if I have to buy the junior leapreader first (since that is his current level)
Does this reader work with tag junior books? Our pen (tag) broke and we are looking to invest in this. Jan 28, 2014
The Tag Reading System pen will work with LeapReader Junior/Tag Junior books, but the LeapReader Junior/Tag Junior is not compatible with Tag Reading System books. ------http://leapfrog.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1961
How long does it take to charge the battery? I had it plugged in for more than 2 hours, and the battery is still not showing me the green light. Sep 27, 2013
Per the LeapFrog website "In general, it should take anywhere from 3-5 hours to fully charge your LeapReader via a USB cord connected to your computer or via the LeapFrog Adapter (wall charger - sold separately) accessory. However, if you are charging with a USB cord and your computer goes to sleep, the LeapReader will suspend charging until the computer is "awake" again. You can disable the sleep mode in your computer while charging to ensure the device continues to charge while you are away from your computer. Additionally, if your LeapReader has completely discharged (and has not been charged in several months), it may take longer for the device to fully charge (8-10 hours). You will know the device is fully charged when the battery light on the side of the LeapReader turns green (the battery light is a yellow-orange color while the device is charging)." http://leapfrog.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2314
It's a newer version of the Tag system. I works with *some* of the Tag books
