Received this as a gift for my 3 year old daughter's birthday. She likes it, but my 5 year old son loves it! My 3 year old scribbles, presses the buttons, and will sometimes follow the directions. It will be a great toy for her as she gets a little older. I was surprised how much my 5 year old likes it....took to it immediately, is practicing his letters, sounds, etc. I would definately recommend for an older 3 year old to maybe a 5 or 6 year old.
