I bought this for my 5 year old son, hoping it would assist in learning. I did have reservations, was it a gimmick?, would language be American causing confusion? I am very happy to hear British English from the pen. My son loves it and should get a good one or two years use out of it, before he grows out of it. It has to be said the TAG system is technologically very advanced and flexible. It is so easy to use especially as a self help system. A reading hour in the car is not easy when you are driving, but this system fills in for the occupied parent. It is no substitute for formal teaching but it is a very convenient supplement. It really does help and is fun. The only downside is the cost. We bought the pen, a set of long vowel language books, Mr Pencil writing, some story books and a map of the solar system. I think this is enough for background play. As my son develops, his main support will be good old fashioned paper books. Watch the video's, they helped sell it to me.

Got this on offer. Inside the pack you get the pen - used for all the books in this range, a book, one small sheet of paper and the USB cable. The book inside here is pretty rubbish, it's used for getting used to the pen I imagine but it's not great and would recommend getting a few other books with it. The sheet of paper is useless too. I do like this product, provided you get it chap enough. I got it on offer and probably wouldn't pay full price for this (as you're only really getting the pen)

An excellent educational tool with lots of potential. Having purchased this for my 4 year old to help her with her reading I have to say I am really impressed. We have purchased several leap tag books, the world map and the solar system all of which are excellent and perfect for her age. She loves reading along with the use of the pen and the map and solar system are so informative containing lots of facts. A very clever use of technology to really help you little one learn.

Exactly what I wanted for my children. They enjoy them just as much as I knew they would. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Others found this very successful but my granddaughter found it hard to get on with. Their Mum spent a lot of time with this but concluded that it was too fussy for little learners. It required perfect adherence to the dotted lines and kept telling her to start again. Whilst I agree that this is the way to perfection, she soon lost interest in a talking pen! She gets on much better with a pencil and paper and a bit of encouragement.

this product is amazing for getting kids more involved in reading and writing. Our little one is 3 and a half and we got this for him and he loves it. Lots of books to choose from and he also loves being able to listen to stories being read aloud directly from the pen. I'm really impressed with this - also acts as a writing pen and you can get books to teach a child to learn to write.
Thoroughly recommend.

It doesn't work consistently. I bought this to replace an old leapfrog pen. It loaded all our books and games fine but it will only read about one page of each book and then it won't click on anything else. It just stops working. This is obviously very frustrating for my children and they quickly gave up playing with it. Very frustrating for me as well as I do love these learning games and books for them.

We bought a leap reader for our daughter for her 4th birthday. She loves to play school and this has been a great investment. My daughter loves to practice printing her letters, plays the games and listens to the stories. We always have encouraged reading and writing, but now my daughter can practice on her own. She loves to play with this - especially using her headphones. We have noticed that her memory of different letters - both knowing and writing them have improved substantially since she started playing with the leap reader.
