            My favorite part of this product is that my grandson cannot write the letters, numbers, etc. in any direction or whichever way he likes he can only do it following the direction of the arrows. My grandson is learning to write while having fun. He gets excited each time he unlocks a different game to explore. His favorite is the ones with the race car. He is also learning to properly hold the pencil these activities is helping me prepare him for kindergarten. We also have a vast collection of the learning dvd's which is helping with his learning. Thanks Leap Frog.

            Disappointed

            By EZim82

            from Tampa, FL

            Comments about LeapFrog Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil Stylus & Writing App:

            Took an hour to unlock because of the stylus eraser's poor design. No sensitivity adjustment so my three year old gets frustrated when it tells him to "try again" even when I watch him trace the letters perfectly. It even takes me several attempts to get it right. There has never been an update (still on Ver 1.0) even though it was released 1.5 years ago. It leads me to think LeapFrog has abandoned support for this app.

            Comments about LeapFrog Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil Stylus & Writing App:

            the app idea is cool, but the app itself is very hard to use I am 30 years old and don't have the patience to put the pencil exactly where the start marker is I've had few urges to throw my ipad out of the window while trying this game because the app wouldn't recognize pencli location this game needs to be adjusted and re-tested 1000 times by adults and kids before release to public

                My grandson is 5 years old and has ADHD. This is the first program that he liked so well that he played it for two hours today and wanted to continue. Great program.

                Ooops

                from Santa Cruz, CA

                Comments about LeapFrog Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil Stylus & Writing App:

                The first measure of any toy or game purchase by an adult for a child is that the purchase must not make the adult feel like an idiot during the assembly or implementation on behalf of the child.. This purchase by the grandma ended up with this gramps (a three-generation veteran iPad user) confused and utterly unsuccessful in being able to make any sense out of this game. Mr. Pencil's lips move and there is no sound. The screen changes without touching it and another character's lips move and no sound. As for moving back a screen, or starting over, or moving forward the whole experience remains a mystery. I cannot recommend this game for anyone who does not have a friend who understands the game and is using the game with their kids to assist with the setup and use.

                I am SO SICK AND TIRED of useful products like this catering to ONLY Apple products! You do realize that their are MORE Android and PC based users than Apple users right?

                    Comments about LeapFrog Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil Stylus & Writing App:

                    We love all the Mr. Pencil apps on our LeapPad so when I saw this I knew we had to give it a try. Basically, this product is stylus for capacitive touch screens (like on iPads) that you can use to interact with the Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil app. The app is free but you will need the stylus to unlock the full game. That said, if you want to know if this would be a good app for you then download the app and check out the free trial before buying the stylus. Mr. Pencil is really comfortable to hold and the tip is nice and sturdy unlike some adult styluses I have purchased where the tips have broken. He even has an eraser that feels like a rubbery material. The body is hard plastic. Being a stylus he can also be used in any other apps for Apple device that your child likes. We especially like to use him for coloring book or drawing apps. The app itself reminds me a lot of Mr. Pencil Saves Doodleburg only in this one you are helping everyone prepare for Art Day. There are activities for learning to drawn all the letters, numbers, and basic shapes. The app does require precision like all the other Mr. Pencil games but I found this one to be just a little harder than others but that may be due to the slick glass screen of the iPad compared to plastic LeapPads. If you have other Mr. Pencil games this will be familiar territory. Overall, this is another great Mr. Pencil product. Just be careful letting your child play with your iPad!
