Both my boys (5 and 3) Love this game. My oldest has played it over all the other games for a while now. And my 3 year old who used to get frustrated with tracing is now doing the tracing amazingly with no help! this is over the course of a week. It is amazing to see how much this game has taught my boys.
Mr Pencil Saves Doodleburg is educating my 3 year old granddaughter to write. It is superior to Mr Pencil that uses just an electronic pencil. However the screen of the Lead Pad Ultra only works with ease when the battery is fully charged. My grand daughter chooses the Leap Pad version over the Mr Pencil electronic pencil most of the time. I like the lessons and the ability to get immediate practice on making letters. It is fun to do and my granddaughter is getting a lot of practice with her letters.
Really great prewriting and writing lessons. I really like Larry in the coffee shop part of the game. He talks super fast, even I laughed at it. Really helping to learn letters. Only had it a few weeks and she has completed the game probably 10 times over.
My child played this game on someone eles leapfrog and wouldn't stop talking about it. My child is an age under then the recommended age for the game. Since he had played it already I figured it was something he could grow into and get better at as he gos.
