Rated 1 out of 5 by Becca2 No way to know if this is fun or educational!
My son just became interested in this recently, he is now 2 1/2, but it rarely works! I have had to plug it in to the computer and re-save the books each day, sometimes multiple times a day. This can be very annoying for a toddler and extremely frustrating for momma! I should also mention, if I hadn't had an old Windows based computer this item would be completely worthless to me as I have not been able to get LeapFrog Connect to work on my Mac computers for longer than one sync. I wouldn't waste my money and time on another Leap Frog product! Will be looking elsewhere for educational toys in the future!

Rated 2 out of 5 by elijahj Frustratingly low memory
The kids love this product, but it seems very poor design to include only 8MB of memory. I can buy an SD card that could easily hold all the books available on leap reader for a few dollars, but this product can only hold about 4-5 books at a time. So if your children like to read a large variety of books like mine do, you will spend more time on the computer loading and unloading books onto it than your kids will actually using the product. Unfortunately this is the case with next pen too. It also only holds a handful of books.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bagofbagels Not enough memory
We asked Grandpa and Grandma for this gift and now I feel bad about it. The concept itself is fantastic and my 3y/o loves it! However people buy us more books to use with it, but if you notice, there's only 8MB of memory!!!What!?! We now own several of the "sets" and you can only do one set at a time--so when she wants to read from both sets, I can't let her! :(
Then I have to connect the Leap Jr. to the computer, remove one set, add the other, etc, etc, etc. You get the picture--it ruins the novelty, the love of the books, and the toy itself--when a toddler doesn't know which books they can/can't read--well, it's not going to last long. It's too bad, because we really like the idea and it's so easy for her to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nanaof6 LeapReader Junior is fun
I really like the product BUT it has one draw back. You can only have 3 books installed in the leapReader. If you want another book you have to remove one. I was disappointed with that because I ordered several books.
That said I really like the product otherwise.
I only purchased the LeapReader Junior because I love the LeapReader. Buty 3 year old grand daughter has trouble with the pen shape of the LeapReader. The LeapReader Junior isuch easier for her to handle. I would recommend it if it held more books in its memory.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momof3girlies Great toy but needs more memory
Bought as a Christmas gift for my 14 month old daughter. She enjoys making Violet talk by rolling her over the pages, which helps with her reading skills as she is already learning to follow along with the words on each page.
I am very disappointed in the lack of memory on the device itself. Can only upload TWO books at a time. There are so many books available for it, having to hook it up to the computer and switch them out often seems like a hassle.
Also, making it rechargeable would be awesome as I can see this model running thru batteries pretty quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dadofthemoment Excitedly unhappy
I am thrilled with the amount that my daughter is learning from the reader. I am disappointed with the amount of memory in the readers themselves.
