LeapFrog Scribble and Write
1.  LeapFrog Scribble and Write by LeapFrog
The list author says:
  "It is very sturdy and teaches kids not only letter sounds, but upper and lower case letters but also shows them the correct way to form the letters.  Also, for pre-reading and writing skills, it teaches tracing shapes and simple pictures to help with coordination.  One of my two favorite reading toys."
