Decent product but has issues. An upgrade to the traditional sketch pads but learning center would not come on after apprx. 2 weeks. :( I put new batteries in & it comes on for a few hours then will not come on again unless another set of new batteries are installed. The sketch pad is fine which provides the two year old a writing option during car rides.

Nice & fun learning tool
My three-year-old grandchildren loved these!
The only drawback is that two of the pieces are loose and I think they should be attached to the screen -- just like the drawing tool is. You know how little kids are always losing small objects.

Read! battery compartment opens be careful
Great toy, my three year old loves this. It's his go to toy every day. I write and draw on it and he traces everything I do but....
Only HUGE flaw is the battery compartment, it just opens and the batteries can fall out. Not good! Not really child proof in my opinion. I would prefer it to have a screw so I wouldn't have to worry about my kid playing with batteries or the batteries going mouth. I also have a one year old so I'm always making sure the compartment is shut and the batteries are inside. Im going to have to end up duck taping this shut to avoid any accidents. Im hoping the company can fix the battery compartment for future owners. I know I would like to not have to worry on a daily basis about the batteries falling out of my sons favorite toy.
UPDATE: I called the company regarding the battery compartment. They first told me to call fan-key to fix the problem, this is not amazons problem. I called back again, this time I had to argue with them for half an hour over the safety of this item. They offered to replace the item with the same product - no thanks I don't need four batteries loose in my house. Then offered for me to pick any toy up to $24. Which I declined because there is not another toy similar to this one that they have, nice gesture but I felt like they didn't care what I was saying. The fact I'm concerned a child can get ahold of a batteries scared me.
Overall they said this toy is not meant for a three year old (although my kid is advance in writing so he should be able to use this toy) they also don't think about what if that family has other children who are younger. This compartment has opened multiple times since I have owned it (since Christmas) they didn't seem so concerned that batteries can just fall out... Which concerns me. So please watch your children with this or do what I do and duct tape it. It's a shame because it truly is a great educational toy.

Great learning tool
My 2 1/2 year old loves this. I'm guessing it will last him awhile because right now at his age we are just drawing pictures, shapes, and his name. But there's a lot more to this item so my son can grow with it. And it was a good price!

Unexpected gem of a toy.
3 year old loved this board. All the fun of a magnetic writing board and great additional play time with the onboard educational electronic component. He likes learning all the letters and following along with how to write them and draw different shapes. This is a lot of toy for an inexpensive price.

We love this toy
We love this toy! My 2 year old just loves doodling and pressing buttons and the 4 year old actually uses it to practice shapes and letters. It has been dropped a million times and still going strong!

My grand-daughter really liked this. And it's educational. Though a bit fragile for a rowdy 3 year old.

Bought this for my 2 year old son and he loves it! I think we will be able to use it for quite awhile with the interactive portion, but for now he just likes to scribble and play. The drawing space is already a little dark and takes a few swipes to clear it, but I assume this happens with most of these magnetic doodlers. Overall a good product and we enjoy it in the car as well.

Good educational toy for a 3-4 year old
My daughter still plays with this from time to time but she gets board quickly as the games are very easy or hard for her. It has helped her with her letter recognition and sounds so I'm happy for that. I would purchase again, but it's slightly disappointing as I was expecting more from Vtech.

i was practicing when I typed in the name and it's there forever. The adults play with it more and seem to like it more than the kids.
