Bought as a Christmas gift for my 14 month old daughter. She enjoys making Violet talk by rolling her over the pages, which helps with her reading skills as she is already learning to follow along with the words on each page. I am very disappointed in the lack of memory on the device itself. Can only upload TWO books at a time. There are so many books available for it, having to hook it up to the computer and switch them out often seems like a hassle. Also, making it rechargeable would be awesome as I can see this model running thru batteries pretty quickly.

This product is fantastic. It is durable and educational. BUT it has only 8MB of memory. That's only enough for 2-3 books. I bought two of these so that I could store some of our books on one and other books on the second. But I still spend time every day removing books and replacing them with others. Flash memory is so extremely cheap! Plus, unlike the other Reader products, the LeapReader has plenty of space inside to install additional memory. Examples of how small 8MB of memory is: 1.) I bought a computer 2 decades ago in 1994 that had 8MB of RAM. 2.) I bought an 8MB flash memory USB 13 years ago in 2001. 3.) The CALCULATOR I use at work has 4MB of memory. I wouldn't mind if LeapFrog charged more money for more memory. Why not sell an upgraded version with 256 MB? Again, flash memory is CHEAP! Great product. I couldn't recommend it more highly! But this product will continue to get a one star review from me for all the time that I have spent every day switching out books constantly.

Frustratingly low memory

      Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Violet:

      The kids love this product, but it seems very poor design to include only 8MB of memory. I can buy an SD card that could easily hold all the books available on leap reader for a few dollars, but this product can only hold about 4-5 books at a time. So if your children like to read a large variety of books like mine do, you will spend more time on the computer loading and unloading books onto it than your kids will actually using the product. Unfortunately this is the case with next pen too. It also only holds a handful of books.

          Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Violet:

          We asked Grandpa and Grandma for this gift and now I feel bad about it. The concept itself is fantastic and my 3y/o loves it! However people buy us more books to use with it, but if you notice, there's only 8MB of memory!!!What!?! We now own several of the "sets" and you can only do one set at a time--so when she wants to read from both sets, I can't let her! :( Then I have to connect the Leap Jr. to the computer, remove one set, add the other, etc, etc, etc. You get the picture--it ruins the novelty, the love of the books, and the toy itself--when a toddler doesn't know which books they can/can't read--well, it's not going to last long. It's too bad, because we really like the idea and it's so easy for her to use.

              I really like the product BUT it has one draw back. You can only have 3 books installed in the leapReader. If you want another book you have to remove one. I was disappointed with that because I ordered several books. That said I really like the product otherwise. I only purchased the LeapReader Junior because I love the LeapReader. Buty 3 year old grand daughter has trouble with the pen shape of the LeapReader. The LeapReader Junior isuch easier for her to handle. I would recommend it if it held more books in its memory.

                    Only just started using it, but I can say the program to load the books is easy to use. I wish it held more than just 5-6 books at a time. Plus even though it says ages 1-3 on the box my 17 month old does not get and does not seem interested. Hopefully, as she gets bigger it will become of interest.

                            This is so totally unacceptable. There is only 8 mb of memory which only allows for two books. That's right folks - forget downloading all of the other books they advertise, because none of them will fit onto the toy without constant deletion of previously purchased books. Which means the books you buy you have to delete over and over again. Leap frog, you do realize that its 2014 - right? Salt to the wound, includes the speakers being cheap - while the sound quality is audible, it is poor. It certainly is not of the quality you'd prefer for this type of toy. The only thing that makes this toy fun is that its a good concept. Massive fail!
