Great toy, my three year old loves this. It's his go to toy every day. I write and draw on it and he traces everything I do but....
Only HUGE flaw is the battery compartment, it just opens and the batteries can fall out. Not good! Not really child proof in my opinion. I would prefer it to have a screw so I wouldn't have to worry about my kid playing with batteries or the batteries going mouth. I also have a one year old so I'm always making sure the compartment is shut and the batteries are inside. Im going to have to end up duck taping this shut to avoid any accidents. Im hoping the company can fix the battery compartment for future owners. I know I would like to not have to worry on a daily basis about the batteries falling out of my sons favorite toy.
UPDATE: I called the company regarding the battery compartment. They first told me to call Amazon to fix the problem, this is not amazons problem. I called back again, this time I had to argue with them for half an hour over the safety of this item. They offered to replace the item with the same product - no thanks I don't need four batteries loose in my house. Then offered for me to pick any toy up to $24. Which I declined because there is not another toy similar to this one that they have, nice gesture but I felt like they didn't care what I was saying. The fact I'm concerned a child can get ahold of a batteries scared me.
Overall they said this toy is not meant for a three year old (although my kid is advance in writing so he should be able to use this toy) they also don't think about what if that family has other children who are younger. This compartment has opened multiple times since I have owned it (since Christmas) they didn't seem so concerned that batteries can just fall out... Which concerns me. So please watch your children with this or do what I do and duct tape it. It's a shame because it truly is a great educational toy.
