brina My Son Wouldn't Leave The store withoUt it.

thetoyspy - It's an alternative to a LeapPad or InnoTab for the youngest of the iPad fans

- It's really an "old" style toy adapted for a iDevice world and interaction



- The common gripe seems to be the screen is dark - and it is. It's not a backlit screen. But, for the proper audience, it's not a bad choice.



The catch is deciding if it is worth the price as it is only halfway to an InnoTab or LeapPad, but, it might be a bit more limited.

mom of many We have special needs children, they will be 3 or 4 their whole lives, because of this it is very hard to find a toy they like AND actually play with. Add to that the fact that whilst they are developmentally 3 they are actually 12 yrs old so needless to say they are very rough on toys, especially when they become frustrated..let me tell you this toy is fantastic, it holds their attention, has taught them many things..countless things really and it "bounces" well.lol! I am SO glad FP brought it back this year ..the only gripe..i wish they had cartridges for the "slightly" older crowd.. kids need more to learn besides the ABC, 123.. i could think of tons of stuff they could add...but alas we do still think it is an amazing toy..oh ..ok one more gripe..i wish WE could lock in the volume setting..perhaps inside the battery compartment or something..daytime use doesnt bother me but they love to use it in bed and boy it is loud after a while..not damaging..just too much is all..

Mom of twins Sound is good! Touch pad works great! The activities that come on the free cartridge is pretty good! The microphone part doesn't work to good. My kids are hitting the screen with the microphone instead of their fingers and some paint from the microphone is rubbing onto the screen and won't rub off. Buts that our fault I guess :-/ but my kIds like it! if you touch a object it makes the noise of the object first then the word! The free cartridge goes over alphabets and numbers 1-3! It has one game where you follow the light, it will light up one spot then once you touch it the light moves to another spot and my kids like to play it! They just turned 2 and they play along with everything pretty good!

Lily's Proud Grandma I purchased this for my 2 1/2 yr old Granddaughter. She always wants to play with hand held games but she is too small. This is a nice first game for her. It lights up, has a nice sound, and keeps her attention. The games are perfect for her age. We will get at least 2 years out of this toy so it was worth buying. [...]. I am very happy with this purchase and would buy this again.

Erin When I first saw this toy after the dust (read: wrapping paper) settled in my living room a couple weeks ago, I was perplexed. This toy is very low-tech considering the price. When I saw in the commercials that it was a touchpad, I assumed it was more computer-like, like the InnoTab or the new LeapPad systems that look like video games. Instead, we ended up with this old school contraption that looks like it's lit up with Lite Brite pegs, sounds like a future of hearing loss and comes with a microphone attached like those little cassette players kids had in the 90s.



Like others have said, this toy is not lit up from the back, and although my son and I haven't had any major problems navigating this toy due to the screen's darkness, I can see how other people may have issues with it. The only light comes from the little sensor bulbs that are behind the cartridge.



The bigger problem I have with this toy is the volume. THIS is the toy that makes parents vow to never buy their kids anything battery-operated. Even on "low" this toy can be heard across the house; I can't imagine that the volume of this toy could be safe for a kid's hearing.



That said (and much to the chagrin of my poor eardrums), my son loves this toy and plays with it constantly. He doesn't use the microphone part often, but he does sing along with the songs, etc. Would I buy this product? Probably I'd just spend the extra $20 and get something digital that I thought would keep his interest in the longterm.

Jill the busy Mom Purchased for my 2 year old. Very unhappy with the use of the product. The screen is so dark we can't really see to play the games, especially after a few minutes of her touching the screen, her fingerprints make it even harder to read!

photog mom My son got this for Christmas, and I was super excited about it. He loves music and responds really well to touchpads. I feel like Fisher Price cheapened out on this product. The screen is NOT backlit like it shows on the photos or even on the packaging of the product. Very dark screen and is only lit by yellow bulbs behind it. It is a touchpad, however its functions are not as REALLY limited and not at all as I would have expected. Honestly, reminds me of a toy from the 80s and aside from it, I don't think its a great learning toy what so ever. I was just overall not impressed and would not recommend to others to buy.

ccc316 While toys r us had this priced well below the cheapest of it's competitors, it is still very over priced. The screen is way too dark. It sounds like it could break any second when switching screens. And came with no directions. So basically it's just something for my child to press buttons on until I have the time to teach myself how to use it, then teach it to him. He plays with it about once a week, 10 minutes at a time. Total waste of money. Only wish I hadn't gotten rid of the box. Toys r us is really picky about returns vs their competitors. I'd say it's worth $25 at the most.
