This review is from: LeapFrog Scribble and Write (Toy)
My just-turned-3 daughter loves this toy - we bought it in advance of a long car trip and it was helpful in keeping her attention. She calls it her "Leapster" and loves the fact that she has something electronic and portable like her older sisters have. She's a smart cookie, but due to her age, she's not really able to really follow tracing letters. I can see this being increasingly fun and interesting to her later this year. There are lots of different play features so fortunately not all of it is beyond her. She's able to turn it on and off by herself which is great for battery life, and is able to put the stylus back in it's place too. It's lightweight but not flimsy and a perfect size for preschoolers to carry around. The volume level is not obnoxious if it's on the lower setting - it doesn't drive the adults crazy. Recommended.
Update: March 2011: My now 4.5 year old still plays with this! She loves it! At this age, she is able to use her big sisters' Leapsters but she continues to come back to the Scribble and Write to trace letters and play the other games. It will probably travel on Spring Break with us again this year too. It's going on year 2 of play value (pretty impressive for a toy), so I continue to recommend it. Thanks, LeapFrog!
