VERY CUTE DESK Oct 16, 2005
By Sharon L. Garcia
Very easy to put together took only minutes. Perfect size for young children. *TIP TO BUYER* no cartridge is needed for the leap pad player it is already programed in. I spent several minutes trying to find one, just put in the batteries and thats all you need. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Cute desk son loves it !!!!!! Nov 16, 2005
By Mona Lisa
This is a really good desk. My son just turned 3 and recieved it for his bday. He sits in it all day on and off and just loves to use the pen and the book. I highly recommend this desk !!!!!! The desk if very light also so you can carry it up stairs and downstairs like we do. The chair is pretty sturdy as well so you don't really have to worry about your child falling over.

Not quite in love Jan 06, 2006
By S. Bush
My son recieved this desk for Christmas. He turned 2 in August and has become increasingly interested in drawing and learning how to write. I think that the desk is very cute but I am concerned by how small the chair is. My son is big for his age. He is about 37" and 42 pounds and although he can sit in it fine now, I am not sure how long he will be able to. It does not have much back support making it almost like a stool instead of a chair. My only other complaint is that there isn't much room to draw on because the little storage compartment where the leappad goes takes up a significant portion of the desk. A standard (8 1/2 x 11) sheet of paper needs to be tilted to the side to fit completely. I would have liked for the desk to be a little wider. Other than that I like the desk and more importantly, my son enjoys himself. He has been walking around with the leap pad all day and when he sits at the table he likes to use the stencils. I agree with the other reviewer about the size of the on/off button. Little eyes/hands are drawn to it. The desk is very easy to put together(although the screws are a bit difficult to find), so easy in fact that my son helped me to snap on the legs of the table and chairs!!!!!!!!

AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! Jan 02, 2006
I must say I am extremly pleased w/ this purchase! Very easy to set up...less than 5 minutes. And my son LOVES IT! He is learning from it and spends hours with it. I was skeptical at first as the LeapFrogs products and how well it entertained and if it really taught them at a pre-school level. My son is 2 1/2 and is finally saying and recognizing his numbers and alphabet due to this product. so A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Love these reviews! Dec 31, 2005
"Dr. Fünke’s 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band Solution"
Let's see, we've got a pretentious crazy person equating a child's activity desk with being restrained. My daughter, 20 months, loves coloring at this desk and she's grasped the leap-pad surprisingly well. Unfortunately, she's showing remarkable creativity and a desire to read - what a sucker! Thanks for that helpful review.
To a lesser extent - a little irritating that someone would rate the product lower for not coming with a cartridge that goes with the stock "ABC" book. You see, that book works with the leap-pad when there is no cartridge - it doesn't need one. And yes, this is not made of crayon proof materials - also keep in mind that it's neither blowtorch or sledgehammer proof, nor will it last long in a raging fire. Washable crayons, however, tend to wash right off, oddly enough. If you have a 2 year old, you might want to consider them.
As for the desk - I got a decent deal on the schoolbus "My First Leap-pad", but returned it when I saw this was on sale for only $15 more! The desk itself is very sturdy, easy to assemble, and nice looking. Threw away the crayons that came with, and I will insist on supervising the stamp set, which looks nice. The activity pad and notebook are nice extras, quickly spent. The surface of the desk holds the leap-pad very nicely, but this same brace to hold the pad prevents many coloring books from fitting entirely on the desk surface. The chair is far from ergonomic, but perfect for her 5-10 minute stints at the desk.
As for the leap-pad, I'm very happy. Easy to use and very durable. The content of the 5 pads we bought with this seems appropriate - educational, but not so advanced as to confuse a toddler - and the best one might be the stock "ABC" book that works without a cartridge. Once again, if I were to nitpick, it would be that the on/off button is the most prominently displayed. My daughter is really getting the hang of using this, but she still is drawn first to the power button and often turns it off while in a button pushing frenzy.
Overall, I'd rate the leap-pad very high on it's own, and the entire pad/desk ensemble even higher.
