My oldest son received this as a Christmas gift when he was almost 4. He loved it from the start and would keep his interest for at least an hour. Everytime I gave him a new book, he couldn't wait to "read" with his pen.

After almost 9 months we had problems with the camera, and I contacted LF support. After trying other other solutions, they sent a BRAND NEW PEN to us. I was so happy with their prompt responses, I will stay loyal to the Leapfrog products.

I highly suggest getting the 32MB as we have almost filled up the pen with books and probably will by Christmas this year. Some of the 4-6yr books are too easy for my son so it won't hold his attention as long, but others are a bit of a challenge which I like. I guess it's just a bit of trial and error for finding age/knowledge appropriate books.

Overall, big thanks to Leapfrog for giving us a great selection of books and making it fun for our kids to learn!

TAG reader is a great idea but it is incredibly flawed in a couple ways. First, it only holds 32 MB which if your kid wants more than 8 or so books, it can't hold them all. The worst is if you have more than one TAG system (for multiple kids or to another to hold more books) or the older version which only held 16 MB and you don't know which book is on which TAG. They need to make the system's storage large enough to hold at least 12 books and games. But the worst thing about the TAG that I have found is that my son want to play with it, but really he just wants it to read him a story. He has NEVER on his own picked it up to "learn" reading and practice it making the letter sounds or reading each word. We sit down with him each time to WORK on reading and learning the words rather than just letting TAG read it for him. But if we're sitting down and working on it with him, why do we need TAG? At that point, I simply use the books and don't involve the TAG reader at all...so why did I spend $50? I certainly didn't think this was going to be a magic tool that would teach my child to read, but it IS marketed as an educational toy that "helps your child learn to read". I'm sure some kids that like reading and want to learn to read on their own use it to learn to read, but I would guess that's only maybe 30% of kids. Most kids I think probably sit down with it as a toy to let the TAG read them the story. So, fine for a toy, but bad for an educational system. I was debating between this and the VTECH system--don't know if that one is any better but worth looking into. I did have a problem with the first 32 MB TAG we bought, within a month, the reader wasn't working. I contacted Leapfrog and they sent me a new one right away, saying that sometimes the "eye" of the reader malfunctions or comes loose. After 1 month? That doesn't instill a lot of confidence! But they did replace the product and the 2nd one seems to be fine after a few months.

      Comments about LeapFrog TAG Reading System - Green:

      My daughter got a Tag Jr.(Puppy Scout as she called it) for Christmas 2011 and she loved it (she was 2). The next year we decided to upgrade her to the Tag and it has been an excellent next step in her learning process. I love that she will sit and tap through the books for hours on end unless I make her stop. She enjoys walking around listening to the audio books on it when we are out and about and it's not feasible to take a book. She is getting the phonics reading system for her birthday next week and I am so excited to see where that takes her.

          I was skeptical when these pens first came out!! But, after seeing my son go from a boy who looks at pages to a boy who reads pages and understands the story, I was a believer! This pen has allowed him to not only read his books but explore his books and he plays with his tag more then his Leappad! Great product!

            Comments about LeapFrog TAG Reading System - Green:

            We've had nothing but bad luck with them so far. We got the system and some books 3 weeks ago for my son's birthday and he hasn't been able to use it yet. Whenever we try to connect to the computer (Windows Vista) we get an error message that there is a problem with the driver. I called customer service and was told that this was a common problem and they would email me instructions on how to handle it. The instructions that they emailed were exactly what was listed on their website and we had already tried them 3 times. I responded back and was sent other instructions which also failed. They then asked me to run an analysis program on my computer and send the results back to them. I did this and 2 days later (after questioning if they had received the files) they responded that they had and asked if I could try another computer. I told them that I could not, we only have one computer and asked what was the problem. They said that they would send us a preloaded TAG if we would tell them the color, mailing address and a list of up to 10 products that we owned or were considering buying. We provided the list and were told it would take 7-10 business days for the pen to arrive. After about 8 days we got the preloaded pen but when we tried it with the products we have it only worked on 3 of the 5. This one would also not connect to our computer (the same error). I emailed them and asked about it and after 24 hours they responded and told me that the pen was preloaded and all I had to was touch the books and it would work. Why didn't I think of that?? I informed them again that I tried that with all 5 products that we own and it only worked on 3. I'm still waiting on a response. And they still haven't told us what the problem is or what happens if we want to buy other titles. Also, my son can't get the rewards from the games because you have to connect to the computer to get them.

                  I got this for my 3 year old son because he started to ask questions about spelling and to sound out words. So I figured he was ready to learn to read. This item was on sale, so it was completely out of stock in the store. Luckily the staff checked on the availability at other stores and found it was available online. She placed the order for me in the store and I received it within 5 days (free shipping too). I was expecting the plain green tag pen, but actually got the "Toy Story" one, which was a great bonus. The package also came with a "Toy Story" activity book along with the starter book (another plus). I liked that the pen was "preloaded" with the starter book, but I didn't realize we had to "upload" the Toy Story book until my son tried to do the activities. Installation of the program was easy, but it did take a few minutes to understand how to "upload" books to the pen. Overall, this is a great learning tool for my son and I have seen some improvements in his reading skills =). I plan to invest in more Tag books.

                  My daughter received this as a birthday gift and she seems to really enjoy it. She only received one book, but I have several more on order. I really like that this not only reads the books, but also helps with understanding the story and sounding out the words and letters. My daughter also likes that there is interaction with the pictures. I also really like that there is more than just books available for this and plan on getting the maps, body, and solar system products in the near future.
