I bought this for my 3 year old for Christmas. She loves the iPad and I figured this would be a good way to hold her attention and teach her to write at the same time. I have quite a few other Leap items and have been thoroughly satisfied with their performance.

For this App/Stylus:
A child must have VERY GOOD coordination to trace the letters. Even the slightest hint out of the lines and it tells you to try again over and over. It was a struggle to hold her hand in my own and try multiple times with the straight lines with the game saying over and over "try again" "try again". She was almost immediately frustrated because unless her writing was PERFECT she could not do anything in the app. I myself had to attempt the letter "O" two or three times before I got it right. She currently uses the PBS app and is able to complete the tracing games on there just fine. She also has a Leap Pad 2 and can do the tracing letters on there.

OVERALL: Great concept for an app but ultimately not appropriate for teaching beginning writers like it is intended for. Possibly update the App and allow for beginning writers more "wiggle" room and greater margin for error outside the lines and then progress. While I appreciate the fact it is challenging, it really does not allow the children the opportunity to learn beginning writing skills without immediately saying "try again" and offers no options to practice their skills.

NOT RECOMMENDED for children who do not already have basic writing skills. I would say this is more of a practice app for children who already possess writing skills rather than a learning tool.

I bought the Mr. pencil stylus for my daughter in July. After two days of attempting to unlock the free iTunes app without success I contacted leap frog customer service. Customer service was quick to respond. I tried all of their suggestions but none worked for me. I use my iPad for work so it's not a misunderstanding of technology. If the product had a key code that would unlock the app rather than tapping the pencil eraser three times (at the right angle, pressure and iPad position) I would rate this product much higher. Don't get me wrong my daughter loves this stylus and uses it with other writing apps purchased from iTunes Store. The price of the stylus without the app is reasonable and knowing what I know now I would likely purchase Mr. Pencil again.

My son has had problems forming his letters in Kindergarten due to hand strength and grip. Many time a very narrow, long pencil makes it harder to write. Mr. Pencil is easy for him to grip and requires no batteries!!!! Using the free app on my Iphone was easy after using the 'eraser' to conform we owned a Mr. Pencil. He is laughing and forming letters as I write this, the affirmations from the software boosting his interest and confidence. Great product!

This is horrible. I just requested a return. My 4 year old couldnt do it so I tried it out...if you go outside the tracing line a tiny bit it makes you start over. It's just really too sensitive for a child to do.

My 3 year old son enjoys using this "pencil" but also gets very frustrated because it requires the writer to be extremely accurate. I thought maybe he was just too young for the product but I tried to use it and it would often take me 3 or more tries to get started on a tracing activity. I still like the idea of the toy and he has asked to use it a few times since getting it last week.

My son is 4 1/2 and he likes to use Mr. Pencil when playing with the iPad. Even my 2 1/2 year old can use it. It's quite large, and my son can grip it well. My older son is learning to hold his pencil correctly, and he does with the help of Mr. Pencil, because he can see that his writing improves when he holds it properly.

We installed the Writing App for our iPad, which is free if you have the pencil. You touch the Writing App with the eraser portion of the stylus three times and it unlocks.

I thought the app was nice, but I couldn't find where my son could just work on writing his letters or numbers without having to go through the "game" and unlock each section, which is what he'd rather do. So... it's a got stylus, I definitely recommend it, but not so much the writing app. There are other apps the stylus will work with. In fact, I can use the stylus on the iPad as well, but it doesn't swipe pages easily.

First things first - you need an iOS device for this thing. All you get in the box is a pencil-shaped capacitive stylus. If you search the Apple App Store with the title of this product, you can download the app and take it for a test drive before you purchase this product...if you do purchase the product, you can unlock the app to get the full version (or I guess you can pay for the full version via an in-app purchase, but then you don't get the fun pencil...). Really, what you will see here is a review of the app, not so much the pencil device.

This is for a three-going-on-four year old who is able to draw some individual letters but doesn't really get what they mean yet. He really took to the app quite well. It's easy enough that after I set up a profile for him (the app allows for individual profiles so parents can track the progress of multiple users) he can launch and start things up on his own. As for usage, the features are friendly graphics and dialogue, and my son is able to follow along with no help from me. He does have trouble holding the overlarge pencil though...small hands, giant pencil, uncomfortable kid. I did have a smaller capacitive stylus handy that he used instead, but then that all kind of defeats the purpose of buying this product...just download and unlock the app, I guess.

Anyway, another thing to note is that the app itself seems large-ish. I installed this on a 1st Gen iPad and it took quite a while to download and install. Presumably it would be faster on a later generation iPad, but if you're putting this app on an older one prepare to devote 20 minutes or so to the process.

Lastly, the actual exercises being done are similar, if not identical, to the writing exercises in other LeapPad products.
