WAIT! Nov 04, 2000
Right now this toy is just like all the other spelling toys on the market. It cannot do what the box says it can do yet. For instance the box says if you buy the leap link to go with it you can download your child's spelling list. You cannot do that beacause the leap frog web site is not ready to do that yet. I e mailed them and they said it MIGHT be ready by mid November. I personally bought this toy because of all the extra benefits it said it had. Had I known that the company was selling a product that is not even ready yet I would not have bought it. That is why I gave it such a low rating. I was being generous with the three stars. Maybe once leap frog gets their act together and it can be used to its full capacity I will rate it differently. So if you haven't purchased one yet WAIT!

Terrific Turbo Twist Nov 12, 2000
By Kenneth S. Biswabic
My son is an 8 yr. old who is beginning 5th grade. He is a very good student. His only difficult subject is language arts (Spelling). This turbo twist spelling has captured his attention, motivated him, encouraged him and rewarded him. He says it is cool fun! Most important to Mom is the reaction we see when he succeeds in spelling geography or fascinate correctly. Thanks leap frog. Note: Please parents/teachers- encourage leap frog/leap zone to keep their web site affordable. We have used it and it is a gem. However, if the price prevents children who need it from using it... it is a waste of time and effort. A minimal fee is understandable... But let's work to make this available to all kids who need it!

Entertaining and Educational Dec 27, 2000
Turbo Twist Spelling is quite a versitile tool. Originally purchased for a six-year-old girl, her four-year-old brother found the 'toy' entertaining, too. The positive reinforcements offered after each correct letter as well as gentle hints given when a wrong letter was chosen encouraged further gameplay. The animation played after a correctly spelled word was rather simple with block-ish digital images that were far below the standards offered by the audio which included music, male, and female voices. Overall, I strongly recommend this product for young spellers.

Additional Cost Involved Dec 06, 2000
For those of you who are looking to purchase the Turbo Twist Spelling, Math or other products; please be advised to visit the website at www.leapfrog.com first. The packaging shows that additional downloadable material is available from the website which adds new spelling words and games and gives you the ability to download your child's school spelling list. I was led to believe by the packaging that this was included in your purchase price but it is not. You must purchase this additional information at what I considered to be a high price considering the price of the product itself and the additional equipment that you must purchase to complete the downloads.

Great Learning Tool Nov 07, 2001
We bought this item for my son last Christmas, but it wasn't until this year, when he entered the first grade, that he actually started using it to help him with his spelling lists. Being able to download your own spelling words is fantastic. The website offers generic spelling lists according to grade level that you can download. With this toy, my son can study in the car and at other times when I'm not around. After he's done studying, I can print out a progress report to see in what areas he may need help. Be careful not to "slam" the big button on the end when entering your answers. It has broken once, and luckily, my husband was able to take it apart and fix it. The Turbo Twist Spelling has great features like a "repeat" button and volume control. It says encouraging phrases and can even address your child by his first name.
