LeapFrog Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil Stylus & Writing App is basically just an over sized stylus perfect for little hands. There is an app you can download (for Apple products only right now), and by using the stylus you can unlock the full version of the app for free.
The app takes the child on writing adventures around Doodleburg, and help Dot and Dash decorate 24 parade floats for Doodleburg’s Art Appreciation Day Parade.
The child learns upper and lower case letter, numbers 1-20, and basic shapes. The voice commands assist the child with each step, and once the child successfully writes the number, letter, or shape three times, then there is a little celebration and they can move to the next activity.
Another thing I really like about the Mr. Pencil is how durable the stylus tip is. My one year old son William is teething and keeps stealing the stylus to bite on the squishy tip. Despite his sharp baby teeth, the stylus remains intact. I've purchased other stylus product to use myself, and the tips have easily ripped, so I'm impressed with the construction quality.
Clicking on any of these pictures will take you to the product's page on Amazon.com where it is currently available for under $10. The improvement Hannah has had in her penmanship, as well as her excitement for letter and number recognition lately, has made it well worth the price.
