Don't waste your money on the Vsmile. My kids had one and it stopped working after a few months... and the little portable one, stopped working after 4 weeks!


It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

2 yr old is too young IMO.... but if you must. Leapster and then order the Letter Factory cartridge from the Leapfrog website.  Vsmile would only frustrate your child and is better for the 4-6 age group.

ty i talked him out of a vtech last night, but he was mad that we didn't get it.  i thought she was too young, but he doesn't think so.

I have the Vmotion and my 2yr old and 3yr old love it. Leapfrog has some wonderful DVD that my kids have learned a lot from.

I have a 2 year old too, I think he is too young for those things, I mean sure he could mess around on it but I don't think he would benefit just yet.

www.starfall.com

My oldest daughter just turned 5 and she knows all her letters and the sounds they make and has recently started reading.  The only "game" really I used was the starfall website and then I started using a lot of the ideas from this website.

www.kidzone.ws

We gave our v-smile away, neither of our kids really much liked it but we do have several leapfrog products and love all of them.

*** Just wanted to add that my 2 year old can operate the starfall website pretty independently, there are a few things she still needs help with.

My advice... don't waste your money. DS has a V Tech somthing or other and really doesn't understand the whole "I push this button here and something happens on that screen there" thing. He's almost 3 and still doesn't play with it. He's also got a plug and play and another V Tech toy and computer games non of which were worth the money. By the time he understands the concept he'll be on to more advanced levels of learning so they won't even come in handy down the road.
