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.

      Both my boys (5 and 3) Love this game. My oldest has played it over all the other games for a while now. And my 3 year old who used to get frustrated with tracing is now doing the tracing amazingly with no help! this is over the course of a week. It is amazing to see how much this game has taught my boys.

                      Mr Pencil Saves Doodleburg is educating my 3 year old granddaughter to write. It is superior to Mr Pencil that uses just an electronic pencil. However the screen of the Lead Pad Ultra only works with ease when the battery is fully charged. My grand daughter chooses the Leap Pad version over the Mr Pencil electronic pencil most of the time. I like the lessons and the ability to get immediate practice on making letters. It is fun to do and my granddaughter is getting a lot of practice with her letters.

                                  This game is one of our favorite's, excellent activity for learning how to write and draw. I wouldn't recommend it for use on LeapPad1 because the screen is not that sensitive as on Ultra.
