The Write & Learn Touch Tablet is an engaging toy that helps kids learn to write and draw. It combines a variety of different activities, all of which use sound pedagogy and active reinforcement to keep kids engaged and learning. Turn it on and select from one of six different learning activities-free draw, drawing shapes, capital letters, lower case letters, numbers, and a guessing game. These work in a progressive order to help kids master the basics of writing from making shapes to actual writing. The guessing game helps develop letter and number recognition and closure. The touchscreen is responsive, and the technology is sophisticated so that it recognizes what kids are writing. The triangular stylus helps kids develop the appropriate tripod grip for writing. The lightweight unit with a handle is great for on-the-go play, and the settings let you adjust the volume, brightness of the screen, and more.
Overall, this is a solid learning toy that has a very specific purpose and does it very well.
The Write & Learn Touch Tablet is for ages 3-6.
The unit takes two AA batteries, which are included for try-me purposes. VTech recommends replacing those batteries before you play for best results.
