I ordered 2 of these for my grandchildren that are 5 and 7, thinking that they would love them, WRONG. Honestly, the item has caused more frunstration than anything. The screen is so dark that the child would have to be right under a light to use it properly. The top doesn't stay in one place when opened for using. I've purchased many things over the years from Overstock.com and have always been pleased, however; this time I'm very dissappointed.Read More
I was so excited to see this item intended to be a gift arrive today. Upon opening the package and inspecting it it looked like the toy had been use before, scratches were everywhere,. .i was so disappointed, i am not sure it it works even, but it looked like the item was a refurbished one. This was intended for a gift and i was ashamed to wrap it up and gift it.Read More
these are a good toy for younger kids to get accustom to how to use a computer, but the screen is hard to see and it's limited in what it can do and the kids got sick of the learning and games that are installed in it really fast. It's really for a younger child than what's stated in my opinion. They run on batteries, so have a lot handy. They are worth the price though. Kept the kids happy for about a week. Now handing it down to a younger one that likes to act like they are on a real computer.Read More
