This is a great product! We got it for my son's 2nd birthday and now, nearly a year later, he still plays with it all the time. Contrary to the previous post, I own a mac and found this whole system extremely easy to use and very compatible. As soon as you plug in the system you just follow the on screen directions and it's as simple as that.

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 - Scout:

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.

Great toy for beginning readers

By Campo Mom

Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Scout:

Our 2 year old son loves this toy and we have about 6 books that come with it. He loves to scroll Scout over the words/animals and learn the names of everything. This is a great alternative to any screen time and he is starting to understand that if he scrolls through the words the book will read to him. He has been using since he was about 18 months, but has really gotten a lot of benefit out of it the past few months (closer to 2 years). Would highly recommend.

Not Enough Memory

      Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Scout:

      I had originally purchased three books to use when my son first received the LeapFrog Junior. He just had a birthday and I went to add a few more books to the Junior and found out that there is only 7.5MB of memory and 2.6 of that is used for running the system! That leaves such a small amount of space for storing the numerous books we now have so I have to hide the ones I don't have downloaded. I'm sure now there are watches that have more memory and I don't understand why LeapFrog advertises that you can have so many books on it when in reality it is really only 3/4 at a time! VERY DISAPPOINTED!

          Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Scout:

          Here are the instructions on the manual to install battery.

          Parent Guide & Instructions
          This guide contains important information. Please keep it for future reference.
          Battery Installation
          1. To remove the battery cover, loosen the screw on the battery compartment with a
          screwdriver, coin or other household tool.
          2. Push tab in the direction of the arrow to move battery guard and provide clearance
          to install batteries.
          3. Hold tab and insert 2 new AAA (called LR03 in some countries) alkaline batteries
          as shown in the polarity (+/-) diagram inside the battery compartment (positive
          sides "down").
          4. Release tab so the guard moves back in place, then replace battery door securely
          and tighten the screw.

          But for (2) above, once we loosen the screw there is neither an arrow, not we could understand what you meant by "tab". It resulted in ridiculous waste of time for us.

          Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Book Pal - Scout:

          My two year old loves her Leap Reader Jr. It is easy for her to use. The books are available with her favorite characters. This allows her do the same things as her older sister. Books are also available at a reasonable price and are hard back so they are kid friendly.

                Love this product but you can only download 3 books. It says I still have some space but not enough for another book. my toddler enjoy books and it's a pain that I have to go add and remove books. So frustrating that just DO NOT want to purchase more books just to avoid the hassle of removing old books and adding new ones. I would like to recommend this product if the memory storage is too low. at least I will give them a fair warning about it.
