LeapFrog Toys’ Deluxe Writing Workbook with Mr. Pencil is an absolute steal at $7.99 with free shipping via Amazon Prime.
The instructional toy utilizes a rechargeable, electronic pen to guide your child through the process of learning how to write letters while following a 20-page story with 45 tracing and writing activities that are reinforced through audio responses.
Geared toward 4 to 8 year olds, the Writing Workbook teaches both uppercase and lowercase letter-writing, and includes a two-octave musical keyboard as well as 26 tracing sheets. The pen’s recognition feature can tell where a child left off and trigger audible cues to help learn correct style and form.
The Writing Workbook is part of LeapFrog’s LeapReader series, so if your child works through the activities in the Writing Workbook you can purchase or download other age-appropriate activities.
