I just bought this toy for my son, on the box it actually says 12+ months not what Amazon has listed in the details (24m-6years?). So this is a great toy for a 1yo if anyone had any doubts=-)

This is a replacement that I had to purchase, because our previous one was finally destroyed by my little one. What finally ended up failing was the switch on the right side that turns on the device and selects what mode for it to be on. Some reason my kid loves this switch and considers it as a toy within a toy and plays a little too rough with it. It took about a year a abuse before this switch started failing and made the toy sound like a record skipping. I consider a year for a $20 toy to be a good investment. The pages are durable and held up without tearing, and the paint and color did not fade or wear. I am very happy with this toy and was happy to buy this second one.

VTech seems to use a formula for all of its toys (and it seems to be a favorite for Grandparents looking for gifts): loud music, flashing lights, buttons that multitask and call numbers, letters, make animal sounds, and play music. And my least favorite-- the toys continue to talk to my daughter after she plays with them and act needy by yelling to push the button or come play. This turtle does all of these things. It is an overwhelming and confusing toy for a small child, and it drives me absolutely nuts. It is trying to accomplish too much in a small package. And did I mention how loud it is? If you are a sensitive adult or child, do not buy.

My 14 month old daughter loves this toy! She got it for her birthday and plays with it every day. It is quite durable...she's hauled it around the house, dropping it every few steps b/c it's a bit big for her yet. But it keeps playing! And I'm impressed with the pages, they are made out of some sort of plastic so they will last far longer than even thick paper pages would.

I got this toy for my almost 2yr old for Christmas. So far it has turned out to be a great gift. I am a little worried that she might rip one of the pages off. The pages are stiff but you know how a little can be at times. If you don't have alot of educational toys yet this would be a good one to get. It is simple but yet learning. A toy your little one can sit and play with by self after you show them what to do.

I got this for my (then) 18 month old daughter. She flipped through a few of the pages, pressed a few buttons and then lost interest. She's now 2 years old and still doesn't really play with this. At first she wanted to press the letters themselves to hear the sounds/songs and not the button above it. If I sit down with her and talk about the letter & sounds she sits and pays attention. But on her own it gets forgotten.

I purchased this toy to use with my a home preschool program for my children. Its really loud, for one. Also its confusing as it goes from letters to numbers randomly. You also have to hit the question mark for it to ask them to identify letters. Basically just a really loud, obnoxious toy without much point. Will be craigslisting soon.

My son received this as a gift and was immediately drawn to it. He loved all the buttons to push. Eventually, however, the toy did not live up to what it promised, particularly in the "question" mode. When it would prompt him to find something, he would accidentally hit the buttons on the turtle's feet on his way to push the button of the answer. This caused the toy to tell him that he was incorrect, when he actually knew what to answer. Basically, the bottom buttons are too easily activated and in the way. In addition, the book's pages were sometimes difficult to flip. He soon grew bored with this.

We got this toy when our twins were 6 months old. They liked the music, the flashing lights, and whacking the buttons. When they were a year and a half old I thought they might finally outgrow it or loose interest. Nope. I can't get rid of the thing because it's one of our most played-with toys (and we have way too many).

At 2.5 years, this is STILL the first grab from the toy bin for both twins. The turtle has little activities ("Can you find the letter that makes this sound?") and at two and a half, I think my kids are finally starting to play with this toy as an interactive game. They love the "read a story function," letter phonemes, and making songs with the music keys. When we go on road trips, the turtle always goes along.

It has 2 volume levels and "low" works for me. Not nearly as obnoxious as the other toys we have. It has been incredibly durable. I wondered if the plastic pages would stand the test of time. My kids are hideously rough with book pages, even thick, durable board books. The turtle pages are still in great condition, not even bent! It's been thrown across tile, sat on, had water spilled all over it, and it still works like a charm.

This is one of those toys that I probably would have passed over in the store. So glad someone got it for us. This toy goes the distance.

I bought a VTech Learning Laptop as a present for the daughter of a friend of mine back in 2005. I think this has probably been long since surpassed by newer, "better" learning laptops, but I can say, for several years, this laptop was a great way to help teach an 6-year-old how to get started with computers. I know, firsthand, this laptop took quite a bit of punishment in the form of drops, spilled liquids, and tantrums.

Since that time, I’ve bought numerous VTech learning computers for all ages of children, from toddlers up to 10-year-olds. In fact, the VTech line of learning computers is my go-to gift for family and friends – I’ve probably purchased 30-35 of them since that first one in 2005.

I’ve found them all to be robust, engaging, easy-to-use and learn, and instrumental in teaching children the basics of computers and computing. They also stand up well to the many tests of time you expect from children, from bring dropped, to having soda spilled on them, and even thrown during tantrums ☺

I recommend the entire line of VTech learning computers and recommend them without hesitation.
