By David Baltazar on August 29, 2011
This review is for; Vtech - Brilliant Creations Advanced Notebook

My wife & I bought this for our young son to deter him from using our real laptop since he has a fondness for punching keyes and moving the mouse with his little fingers. Rated ages 5-8, I have to admit that I bought it for my son who is one to two years below that age group, but considering that the majority of laptops/notebooks sold for young children I've seen at local stores have monochrome LCD displays, this was the only notebook I saw that had vibrant colors that stood out over the rest. The VTech Brilliant Creations Notebook has a colorful 4.5" LCD display! An actual mouse is also included that is connected via a side port (appears to be a phone-jack type port that only accepts the included mouse & nothing else). An animated, talking Penguin appears frequently during most of the animated menus.

As advertised it has over 120 functions for young children as it claims although my child & I are still counting. Functions include learing ABC's with sounds (phonics)for each letter and not one, but two word examples for most letters are presented although some word examples seem odd. For example the letter "M" is represented by monkey which is OK (a cute, animated monkey that chirps appears) and mug (an animated person drinks from a mug). "Mug" hugh?

My 4 year daughter (just turned 4) wanted a more challenging laptop to play. So I spent hours researching online debating between laptops and tablet style options. This is what I wanted:

1) color screen

2) lots of challenging educational games, built-in (so I don't have to spend extra money buying cartridges)

3) big screen

4) thin, sleek design

5) QWERTY keyboard

6) a mouse

7) Under $50

Well not only does this V-Tech laptop satisfy all my requirements it has even more that I never considered.

8) excellent speakers

9) includes a built-in TOUCHPAD

10) mouse is detachable and optional (EXCELLENT mouse with realistic single-mouse click feel)

11) COMES with batteries!!

12) keyboard has a very realistic feel to it

13) very intuitive feel on how to choose games and options. A 4 year old can figure it out.

14) TONS of games under each category. The categories are: Story Book, Creativity Corner, Language World, Spanish Corner, Math Kingdom, Science Lab, Social Studies, and Brain Booster.

This laptop exceeded all my expectations. I would have purchased a tablet but the screen size for a tablet is a bit small and I would rather buy an iPad Mini than a kid tablet that needs extra cartridges for play. This laptop does not require any extra cartridges and has so many functions and games built in.

The manual says its recommended for ages 5~8 but I believe younger kids can play with this too. The new generation is born knowing how to use a mouse and keyboard. There's no need to wait until they are 5 to use this product. The graphics are quite colorful, a bit pixelated but it's $40.

I gave this to my son for Christmas. He seems to be really enjoying it, but only after we gave up on using the mouse. The plug has to be held in the port for the mouse to stay responsive. If you aren't pressing on the jack the mouse either won't work or the plug just falls out of the port. The touchpad is also tricky at first. You have to actually press down as you move your finger across it, unlike actual laptops where you only need to touch gently. Once he figured out the touchpad he has been having lots of fun on it. He can select and complete many of the activities on his own (he is 4 1/2).

Received this product on time. Computer is great for ages 4 and up. My 4 yo. loves the matching game the best, then the games where you can dress up people, a penguin village, animals, etc. He'll learn more in a few months as he gets older like Spanish, math, letters, #'s, etc. He loves to get a trophy when he scores "100 points". He also likes the musical instruments he's learning about. He loves this toy! I'm glad I purchased it!

My 4 year old and 2 year old are very pleased with these laptops. It is a product that they can both use currently and they can grow into the more advanced levels.

There are many, many learning activities, we really enjoy the Spanish, and missing letter activities right now.

One complaint is the color pages, it is preset to color related items the same color.

The screen has large pixels, but it doesn't seem to matter to my sons. This is the only color screen I was able to find on a kids toy laptop.

Kind of disappointed that it doesn't come with the AC power cord, but I'll purchase one because it gets lots of use and can eat through batteries fairly fast.
