- Upon turning it on it says, "Hi [says your child's name]!"
- You can select one "sing along" song, and five melody songs for it to play, and it also plays a song spelling out your child's name
- When you push the "blog" button, it reads a blog entry and then asks your child [by name] about their day
- You can personalize three "email" messages by selecting text from a dropdown menu (you cannot type your own message) and entering the sender (e.g., "Grandma" or "Betsy"). The result is an interaction like this:
"You have an email from Mommy [or whomever you program in]. Let's read it! Dear [says your child's name], I love you so much [the message I chose]. Love, Mommy. Let's reply! Dear Mommy, I love you too. Love, [says your child's name]". So it simply reads an auto-generated "reply" and says it is from your child, rather than prompting them to "type a reply." The Leaptop also periodically prompts your child to push the email button, by asking, "Have you checked your email?"
- In the alphabet mode when your child pushes the first letter of their name it will switch between one of two results. One result is this announcement: "[First it names the letter.] That's the first letter of your name [says child's name]. Let's celebrate your letter! [Then it plays a fun little jingle.]" The second result is an announcement naming the letter, saying what sound it makes, naming the letter again and saying an animal that starts with that letter.
- Upon turning it on it says, "Hi."
- You cannot select songs. You get what it comes with.
- There are no blog entries.
- When you select the "Messages" setting it literally says something like this:
"I have a message for you. Message: I spent all day... What's your favorite [game/place]?"
or "You have an email from me. Let's read it. Hi. Writing emails to you makes me happy. Love, [Scout or Violet, depending on whether you have the boy or girl version] Let's reply. Push the letter buttons to write your reply, then push the paw pad." When you do as instructed it says out loud each letter you push, and then says, "Well done," but that's it. So you could push, "JWZL," for example, and push the paw pad and that would be your email. It doesn't read the reply you type (which makes sense since most children will push letters randomly).
- There are no blog entries.
- In the alphabet mode when your child pushes the first letter of their name it will switch between one of two results. One result is this announcement: "[First it names the letter.] That's the first letter of your name [it shows child's name on screen, but does not say it]. Let's spell it! [Then it spells your child's name.]" The second result is an announcement naming the letter, saying what sound it makes, naming the letter again and saying an animal that starts with that letter.
We gave the Leaptop we purchased in 2012 to our son when he was 18 months old. He is now 6 and he still loves to play with it. Our daughter who is about to turn 3 enjoys playing with her brother's Leaptop so much we finally decided we should get her one of her own (hence our purchase and return of a new version on Amazon, and a satisfying purchase of a used old version on EBAY). Reasons why we like the old version follow. Both of our children really like singing and dancing to the music and playing at receiving and writing emails. They also get very excited about the blog entries. Neither one of them has ever been too enamored by the facts about animals (although they both are very interested in animals in general), with the exception of a few favorites. I do think the letter sounds have been valuable from an education standpoint for both of our children. The main reason our children, and in turn we ourselves, like the old version of this toy so much is because it engages them directly by name so frequently through the alphabet, music, email and blog modes. The new version simply acknowledges the first letter of their name and the spelling of their name, but never actually says their name. This makes it so much less personally engaging and since younger children do not always know how to spell their names, the new version may as well not be personalized at all for them since it never actually states their name. We brought our 2012 Leaptop every time we traveled with our son from about age 18 months to 3 years. His interest waned enough after that that we no longer brought it on travels, but it remains a much beloved toy for home use to this day. We are extremely confident that the used old version of the Leaptop we just bought our daughter is sure to be her new favorite toy.
I hope this review is helpful to parents considering buying a Leaptop. I cannot recommend the old version enough and I'm grateful there are people selling quite a few of them on EBAY. Just keep in mind to look for one that indicates it has been tested and is in good working order, and that it includes the cable if you don't have one already.
One of the reasons we decided to get this product was the advertised features of customization. Having customized content for him sounded great. Much to my dismay, the product wanted to install a "sniffer application" which seemed dubious, but after a precursory inspection, I hesitantly continued.
After getting the application installed, the product wouldn't continue unless I gave them copious amounts of personal information, which I didn't want to do. I called up customer support this morning, and the representative said that I should just put in incorrect information, that it didn't matter. That seemed like a good idea, but that made me wonder about whether a fake email address would work, or whether I would need to validate the email address.
When I asked him about the importance of a real email address, he seemed to gloss over my real question and said something like "That would work, but you will miss out on the learnings of your child." Ignoring the fact that he didn't speak or understand English perfectly (despite what corporate America says, "learnings" isn't a word, and he used it frequently, but that was only the beginnings of our difficulties in communication), my interest was piqued about what they could discover about what my child was learning. It took a lot of repeated questioning, and eventually he said that it would update me on my child's progress in spelling and arithmetic. If you've even glanced at this product's description, you'd know that spelling and mathematics are not part of this toy at all. When I called him on that, he mentioned that that was information that could be gained from other toys, so I pressed for information specific to this particular toy. He eventually said that it would tell me the progress of how well he is learning the alphabet. That claim was dubious at best, seeing as how there isn't really any way of testing that with this particular toy, and when pressed on the issue, the representative didn't understand my query. Eventually he also added that it would tell me the usage patterns of my child. That was actually plausible information, but it took about 15 minutes to get that information from him from the original query about data gathered.
All in all, the toy is fine, I just don't like the company policies, specifically with regards to personal information, and hiring practices. (Oh, the representative personally guaranteed to me that the company would never go out of business, so my personal information would be guaranteed safe. And in my difficulties communicating with him, and I asked for more clarification, he would so frequently repeat himself, claiming the moral high ground by stating "as I've already mentioned...")
As you can see, I'm annoyed.
