My son loves to play with anything educational and LeapFrog products are not just educational but also fun and entertaining. So my little LeapFrog fan was very thrilled when we got the Leapster Explorer for review last year. He is using it everyday and learning to draw shapes and alphabets. Thanks to LeapFrog for such a cool product that is helping my child trace alphabets at a young age.
I was pretty thrilled when I received another WONDERFUL product form LeapFrog. Scribble & Write is learning toy exclusively for children to learn alphabets. Though there are bits of other things, many games are meant for children to familiarize and recognize alphabets. It is a really neat product where the interactive voice helps the child to trace the alphabet or push a particular button when they are finished. My son can understand all instructions that the voice gives, so it is pretty simple, straight and short.
The pen is very accurate and has a nice rounded yet focused point. The little screen lights up with tiny LED lights to form alphabets. There are different functions for learning upper case and lower case. It also sounds the pronunciation for each alphabet.
The screen doesn't sense it when the child traces the alphabet wrongly, so that could be improved. I was a bit concerned when my son was just scribbling on the screen and he heard the interactive voice saying that he wrote the alphabet correctly.So I took it and showed him repeatedly how to trace the alphabet and related the voice to the right cause. The cause being writing the alphabet correctly. After a few days he started to trace a few letters correctly and he loves it! It also helps toddlers gain pencil control skills. In the beginning he thought it was like a touch screen on Leapster Explorer, but slowly started to use the pen.
This handheld tablet is very portable and can be taken for long or short trips or just a great company while they sit in the stroller! It is an awesome gift and will be very much appreciated by the child and the parents.
It retails for $ 24.99.
