Remember when your mom gave you a piece of scrap paper and a pencil to shut you up for a few minutes? If she had the time, she'd create letters of the alphabet using dots and tell you to connect them? Think of the LeapFrog Scribble & Write ($20) as a super-sophisticated version of those dot-to-dots. Kids start by tracing lights to draw shapes and pictures, then graduate to learning all the letters of the alphabet. The very cool retraceable surface means they can use it over and over again.
