Customer Reviews

Way too picky

My toddler loves the pencil and always gets it out and he loves learning to write on other apps. But this app is terrible. It's way too picky about the placement of the pencil starting on the dot and staying inside the line. Plus it takes way too long between corrections & each line. My toddler gets frustrated and quits after just a few letters. This would be a great learning tool if the app was less sensitive to the exact pencil placement. But as is this app is terrible & just discourages toddlers from learning.

In app purchases?

I haven't even used this yet and I'm already annoyed that there are in app purchases. Seriously? Why wasn't the full app (which seems overpriced) factored into the cost of the toy?


This helped none delete this app if you have it
