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.

      Totally not worth the hassle

      By MakMomma

      from North Carolina

      Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Violet:

      My son has a LeapReader (the old TAG style) and LOVES it. So when my young daughter started showing interest in his, we decided to get her the Junior for Christmas. Total waste of money. The Junior only holds 3-4 books at a time. We bought her a bunch of books and then found out after that we could only load 4 max at a time, where the LeapReader pen holds at least twice that amount. Then, after she used it just a few times, the batteries died. We have had to change the batteries 3-4x as often as we change the batteries in my son's pen and he will use his for much longer at a time and much more often. I am SO disappointed in this dumb thing. Between the books and the pen it was a lot of money to waste on something that just isn't worth the hassle. And it stinks, because she really likes it.

        Good Idea

        By Technogirl101

        from Indiana

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Violet:

        This is a cute idea, but lacks some in the execution. You put it on the page and it does make sounds, but if you want it to read the words then you have to put it over the words. It kind of defeats the purpose. They can't see the words that are being read, which is important. So all in all I would not buy again, unless they fixed this issue.
