Lots of fun! Jul 01, 2005
By Kristen Shields
We just received this in the mail. My 3 year old son loves it! It took him a few tries to figure out what to do, but we played together and he loved it. We have only tried this book the microphone comes with, "What Will You Be?" so far. Some of the games are just fine for him, and some are harder, so there is room to grow. It's pretty neat, though for an older child it might wear thin after a bit.
The recordings are very forgiving, and more sensitive than you'd think, which is nice when used with young children.
The microphone requires a flat surface. I had hoped to use it on a car trip, but that won't work. Not a big problem, just worth noting.
Also, the intro page and running theme is a fortune-teller predicting what the child can be when he/she grows up. It's done in a humorous way, but if this is an issue for your family, you will not want this title. At the current sale price, the microphone is probably worth it anyway, if you see other titles you want, and you could just discard this one.
Overall, this is a fun addition to your Leappad and a cute book packaged with it. I think we will enjoy it for some time to come.

Didn't Work Dec 30, 2005
By M. Lunsford
We experienced the same problem others have with this microphone shutting the whole leap pad off. We couldn't really play it much b/c the slightest movement of the microphone would shut it down and we'd have to start over. The Leap Pad also didn't recognize it as a leap pad cartridge many times when it was plugged in. Seems like it would be a very fun addition to the Leap Pad if it worked though.

Defective - fluke? Dec 28, 2005
By Silver Dragonfly
My daughter was given this product as a gift - she has had three LeapPads (Little Touch, My First and LeapPad Plus Writing) and we have loved them as all so this might be a fluke. This cartridge will not maintain a constant enough connection for her to play with. It keeps shutting the unit down and failing to recognize it as a LeapPad cartridge. While I gave only 2 stars, I really believe it may be a one-time problem since we have loved all the other LeapFrog products. I am in contact with LeapFrog to try to solve the problem. Is fun when it works!!

A great add-on for your Leappad Jul 18, 2005
By M. A Cohen
Together with "microphone-enabled" Leappad books (not all are--you have to look on the cover at the top), this was a great addition to my 4-year-old son's Leappad. It lets your kid record his voice in response to questions and prompts from the book.
If your kid enjoys playing with Leappad, you should definitely get this and some of the special books ("Hop on Pop" is one of them).
