    As a long-time lover of LeapFrog products, our family was excited to have the chance to review the LeapReader!

    Big Pros:
    - It really is a big improvement over the Tag pen, which we have two of - the ability to recharge the Reader directly is HUGE for a family that already uses way too many batteries =)
    - Another favorite new feature is the larger storage capacity for stories and songs.
    - I really love that the pen teaches writing and correct stroke order - our daughter has had a problem with that.

    Possible Cons:
    - I haven't been able to test this out for myself but I've heard that files for the newer books are larger than the old Tag books, which cuts down on the implied benefit of more space on the LeapReader.
    - I also know that not all Tag books are compatible with the LeapReader, so that could be disappointing.
    - I really wish that the pen would write on regular paper because the special paper gets used up quite fast - I know that a lot of other parents appreciate that it doesn't write on other surfaces, though =)

    All in all, the kids have found the pen so easy to use and we are really happy with the upgrade. In fact, my husband had been working with our 3 yr old to learn his letters but he only knew a few of them. After a couple of days just playing with the LeapReader and the alphabet book that comes with the system, we discovered that our son had learned almost all of the other letters by himself! If that doesn't show the value of the LeapReader, I don't know what does LOL.

    *we received this product free for our honest review - all of the opinions are our own*

    We were excited to buy this new leap system. Our old one was used so much that it broke. So we decided to buy 3 new ones for our boys (under 6). They rec'd them this past Christmas. Our boys love to read!!!! After 5 months of using them they will NOT keep a charge for more than 10-12 minutes. We have charged them according to the manufacturer's recommendations and even longer. Still they will not work longer than 10-12 minutes at a time. At least with the old one you could just replace the batteries and keep going. Very disappointed in this product by far. We have bought a LOT of leap products and now the new and improved is NOT at all improved. Trying to get my money back or some sort of a 1 years warranty coverage fix. So far NO LUCK! No response whatsoever. I would have thought it a faulty product had it just been one of the pens but all 3 are doing the same thing :-(

        Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Reading and Writing System - Green:

        I got this for my grandson as his sister has one, with batteries. We had a hard time charging it and thought it did not work. After 2 days it started making sounds and working. Perhaps a time for charging could be added to the instructions and what will happen when it does get charged. It is hard to explain to a 3yr.old why he needs to wait.

            Really enjoy using the reader will do it all day long with different books. I only wish that it was put together better to withstand frequent use, the first one i had only lsted 3-4 months before the (push) tip had issues and no longer works, will only read the last book out loud. so we are hoping for better out come. Warrenty is only for 30 days.

                My daughter loves her "Pen" as she calls it. She is learning all kinds of new interesting facts. She is proud to be able to tell you little facts. I am very glad I got it. Although I did have a little bit of trouble with downloads, but not too bad. So, all around happy.

                    It is ridiculous that a $50 pen only works with a handful of books. My daughter received the pen for Christmas, but is not old enough for the books. The LeapReader Junior books are perfect for her, but the pen won't work on them.

                            I bought this for my preschool son. While he is learning letters in preschool this year, he has not shown much interest in the pen. I also purchased the ABC and 123 books. I read other reviews and saw that they were unhappy because some of these books required the pen. I purchased the pen and books. The books look fun and you get updates from Leapfrog on your child's progress each week. However my son has not shown much interest in writing the letters or the numbers. I think its just he is a very active child and sitting still is not in his plan of anything fun to do. We did play some of the games & listen to some of the stories that are included on the pen. Since it is USB connected, there's free downloadable content and other activities not included on the books.

                              My daughter just turned 5 and got this gift for Christmas. At first she was disappointed because she got a whole bunch of coordinating books but then once she realized what the LeapReader does she was HOOKED! It has become a part of our daily pre-school assignments (in order to prep her for school and hopefully put her ahead of the class). This is the best money I've ever spent on a learning tool!

                                A great learning product for kids, especially if they have a short attention span. My son is four and Im trying to get him to start reading, but the books I bought for the reader was to advanced, even though it was in his age group.So I have to start with the junior reader accessories. . I really love that the Reader can be used with the junior reader accessories too. Overall a great product for kids

                                Comments about LeapFrog LeapReader Reading and Writing System - Green:

                                I was under the impression that this device would also work with tag and tag jr books....WRONG! Our old one broke, when purchasing the new one, I quickly found out that I am going to have to purchase a tag or tag jr system for my smallest child! Not happy, the first system that worked with all books and was much better. Correct me if I am wrong, products are supposed to get better the newer the generation....right?
