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.

                  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.

                          If your child has a bad temper, I don't recommend this game. It repeatedly wants you to write a letter or number and it gets very annoying. The game is pretty easy, but its hard not to accidentally set your hand on the screen and mess everything up. The animation is also kind of difficult, but otherwise it's a great game.

                                      So I bought this game (in cartridge form) for my 5-year old (then 3) because it had SO many great reviews. He was using the Leapfrog Explorer back then, but now he's got the LeapPad Ultra and this game is pretty much useless now. This is why: With the older devices, this game allowed you to draw shapes (via kid-friendly tutorials with the game's characters), doodle and color. With the LeapPad Ultra and newer devices, you can do that without the need of a game. Furthermore, the "color the town to help save it" theme doesn't quite "grow" with a child. So, OK game, but def overrated. PS: I'm gonna mark that it's "fun for kids" in case your kid has a LeapFrog device older than the tablets, in which case, it is.
