4.0 out of 5 stars So Far, So Good! (Realistic (and Somewhat Sarcastic) Point of View), December 5, 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LeapFrog LeapPad1 Explorer Learning Tablet, green (Toy)
Soooooooo, I Bought The Leap Pad For My Sons 4th Birthday. Of Course Like Many of Us, I Have Read Reviews Over and Over Again and Contemplated About The Price, Etc. This Is Review Is For The Realistic Parent...

1. GRAPHICS - Let Me Just Say My Son Is 4 and Like Most Kids HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT GRAPHICS OR HD! So If You Are One of Those Parents Who Want A 1080 Resolution For A Child's Toy, GOOD LUCK. The Clarity of The Product Is Good. The Pics Are Clear and That's All That Matters. The Animation Is No Different Than A Kid Would See On Nick Jr. 2D Basic Stuff.

2. DURABILITY - I Have A Very Rough Son. He Throws His Toys, He Steps On Them On Accident, Etc. This Is A Pretty Durable Product. I Have Read That Parents Would Rather Buy There Kids An IPAD. Sorry, But This Single Mother Doesn't Have $400 To Waste. I Barely Had The $100 For This Product. But I Can Guarantee That If My Son Steps On This Leap Pad, It Will Be Just Fine. I Can't Guarantee That w/ An IPAD! LOL.

3. PRICING - Yeah The Pad and The Apps Are A Little Steep. But $20-25 Isn't To Bad If You Ration It Out. No One Said You Have To Buy 10 Games Right Away!

4. Everything Else. He Has Been Playing w/ It For About An Hour Now and He Has Already Learned How To Take Pictures, Has Went Thru The Alphabet and Paint Tools. So Obviously He Is Enjoying The Chance To Explore His Toy. It Was Fast and Easy For Me To Do The Registration and Download The Games. I Can't Believe People Complain About Things Like That. 20 Minutes Out of Your Life Shouldn't Be That Bad. And You Don't Have To Sit In Front Of Your Computer As It Downloads The Apps. Can We Say MULTITASK?

Overall, I Am Happy w/ This Product. I'm Happy He Is Enjoying Learning How To Write His Letters. His Happiness Is All That Matters...

FYI - Mine Came w/ 4 Standard Apps and One Free Download.

It must have taken you forever to write this with all the odd capitalization. It would have been much easier to read if you had followed capitalization rules. People aren't going to read your reviews if you can't write properly.

Why Do You Capitalize Every Word In Every Sentence? It Is A Real PAIN In The ASS To Read.

Wow. How do people go through school--have a child, live out half their lives, become adults!--the entire time thinking that the first letter of every word is supposed to be capitalized in English? This is going to come off as offensive, but my friend with Down's Syndrome has a much better grasp of capitalization. MzDraughty's spelling is good, too. How does this happen!? One would think learning the most basic rules of capitalization would come before learning to spell "Guarantee" [sic].

Edit: She didn't capitalize "w/" or "and," so I guess she just thinks everything she writes is a title.
