Audio

Audio:
"She had books for both devices and I was worried I was going to have to buy both, but I was able to download all the audio versions of the other books onto this device (free downloads) and now it all works, plus I saved tons of money, and this was much cheaper than the other leapfrog pen."
_
"LeapFrog customer service tried to excuse it as saying that the audio format is incompatible between the full and junior books, yet somehow they were compatible before."
_
"Just charge up the device, and pre-load the books audio component so the learning and enjoyment can begin frustration free."
_
"(I haven't been able to check the map audio since my kids appear to have misplaced the Tag map!"
_
"If your kids want to play with the reader,you need to buy some other leap books in addition and download the audio for each book as well."
_
"Some other things I like:- it combines reading, writing and listening exercises- the device can sound out words, read whole words or entire sentences- plays learning songs with the built-in audio player- in addition to audio books, it's compatible with a large selection of maps, flash cards, learning workbooks, music albums, etc."
_
"Downloading the audio was also fast and easy."
_
"She had books for both devices and I was worried I was going to have to buy both, but I was able to download all the audio versions of the other books onto this device (free downloads) and now it all works, plus I saved tons of money, and this was much cheaper than the other leapfrog pen."

Battery

Battery:

_
"Another great bonus is there are no batteries."

Charging

Charging:
"The only problem we've had so far is having to charge the leapreader for hours before we could use it for the first time."
_
"That being said, the reader has never really been able to hold a full charge or turn on when we wanted it to."
_
"It kept acting weird while it was charging."
_
"My kid loved it when we opened it and then it wouldn't charge on my mac; had to call them and they have just horrible customer service, apparently this is a common issue with the device which is pretty frustrating as it renders it useless - as of right now it still won't even work."
_
"I like that I don't need to hunt down batteries for the LeapReader like I did with the Tag Junior and the old Tag, but the downside is that having to charge it means taking the LeapReader away for as long as it takes to charge, while the old Tag could keep going once new batteries were inserted."
_
"It definitely takes a while to charge the pen but other than that, it is easy to use for my 4-year-old even my 19-month-old know how to use it."
_
"good product, sometimes not charging to the full, kids love it! "
_
"its easy to use, easy to set up, charges quickly and holds a charge for a long time."
_
"Being able to charge this via the USB port is so much easier and cheaper than having to replace with expensive batteries."
_
"It works amazingly well and holds a charge for a very long time."

Memory

Memory:
"Gave it 4 stars because we love the new Tag Leapreader which has more memory, but hate the fact that it doesn't work with all Tag books."
_
"My son was upset because he wanted to read all of them and didn't understand memory storage and all of that."
_
"It has an increased memory, and while people complain that this memory is still not enough, I find it easy enough to swap books in and out of the device."
_
"But I do NOT love how much it costs when its memory is so small."
_
"I never enjoyed the small memory of Tag Reading System, and I don't think I'll be enjoying it with LeapReader either."
_
"Really, how hard would be it be to port all the titles to the new reader or just sell the old reader with a half decent amount of memory."
_
"It has more memory, so I was able to place all of our Tag book audio onto it, with room to spare."
_
"The new leapreader pen appears to be another great product, more memory on the pen means we can store all of his books and it is only half full."
_
"Gave it 4 stars because we love the new Tag Leapreader which has more memory, but hate the fact that it doesn't work with all Tag books."
_
"Nice upgrade, especially with the additional memory capacity."

Music

Music:
"My only other real criticism is that the music selection is seriously lacking for the LeapReader."
_
"I also liked the trivia challenge and the music album."
_
"Sure, Trivia Challenges and Music Play Lists may be nice (and these are much smaller sizes, too), but what my kids love most are the book reading and games on the BOOKS."
_
"Easy to download books, musics, etc."
_
"the music on the pen was the best part."
_
"It also has more memory so you can load it up with more books, games and now music as well."
_
"I made terrible strokes which made no recognizable letter or number and the unit just made the upbeat music as if I had done perfectly and moved on."
_
"The upgraded Leapreader comes with some great new features including the ability to write trace letters and words, an Audio player for music and Trivia games as well as mini-games within the books themselves."

_
"Another small electronic made in China that unfortunately is going to the landfill."
