My little one absolutely LOVES this Mr. Pencil game!

She's 3 1/2 and we are in the process of learning to write shapes & letters and this game is perfect for helping little ones learn about about writing and drawing.

The game takes you through the town of Doodleburg & your child has to repair the damage done to the town from a twister by drawing shapes, lines & more... sounds sorta sad, but there is a really funny news crew & lots of great characters that really make this a fun game.

I am really impressed that not only is my child having fun & practicing letters and shapes, but she's also learning too.

The game teaches all about the actual types of lines & the distinguishing features of each shape, as well as letter.

The other day my little one asked me if I knew about the letter "l"... she said, you know "l" is really a perpendicular line don't ya? Pretty great for a 3 1/2 year old to already know about perpendicular lines! I highly recommend this game!

I have seen the negative reviews out there about this game regarding its sensitivity and frustration and I couldn't agree with them more. I was looking forward to this so my 4 1/2 year old could practice writing numbers and letters, however it is way too sensitive. When tracing the line you have to start exactly at the circle and stay pretty much exactly on the lines and not lift up the stylus at all. If you do, it starts all over. This is beyond frustrating, I am about to return it at this point since she can't even get her letters/numbers to show up half the time. I can see her tracing properly but b/c she doesn't have it pressed down all the way or exactly on the line there is no progress made. How are young kids supposed to learn this way??? Not encouraging at all!!! Come on Leap Frog, you can do better than this.

          The kids enjoy the opening video my toddler has some trouble with the lines and will sometimes get frustrated with having to restart a line multiple times but still enjoys the game.

              I figured I'd let my 6-year old daughter review it: "I liked that one. I finished almost all of it. I like to color on it and I like to make shapes on it and I like to trace the letters and the numbers and the shapes. I really like fixing the spots on every little place." "Is there anything you didn't like?" "No, there was nothing I didn't like". Speaks for itself.

              My son has the cartridge of this game, and he loves it. We decided to buy this so he could also get the expansion pack for it. We were very upset that it was listed under the leap pad epic titles, but cannot be played on the epic. It was a waste of money for us since we already have the game for the other system.

                  Don't bother with this app it's poorly written and not worth the money. Can't unlock any activities. Poorly thought out. Poorly explained and NOT user friendly.

                                  To long of a story, not enough play. The background story did not keep my 3 year old child's attention and it could not be skipped. There was a narrative story that we had to watch every single time before playing any of the various learning games. it was like watching a boring cartoon that I couldn't turn off.
