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 had the trial version on their Leapster and really liked it, so we got the full version. I was glad that Toys 'R' Us price matched a competitor's price. Money well spent.

        This is the perfect game for what I wanted. It teaches in a fun, relaxed way how to write shapes & letters. The approach is very friendly & non-intimidating. My son did get frustrated at first but got the hang of the touch screen & needing to write the letter shapes in a certain order by his 3rd try on the game. The game builds easily upon itself & really sets up the child well for success & helps foster an amazing sense of accomplishment & a pride in themselves. I am so grateful.

            We bought this game with the Leap Pad 2 for my son's 5th birthday. So far he absolutely loves it and for the first time ever he is writing his letters and numbers without a fight. He really enjoys all the options on this game and is learning as he plays. We all win!

                      Good concepts to teach children how to write letters and numbers, learn colors and how to draw. Includes play section in addition to lessons. However, the drawback is that it is very frustrating for my child when he is trying to trace the exact line, letter, etc. because you must be very precise, which is hard for children who are just learning how to write. Program could be revised so that children do not become overly frustrated and give up. It requires you to be very precise and stay very close to the line you are tracing or it erases what you did entirely, even if you were close to completing it. Slow to load at times, which makes play interrupted.
