    I had hoped that this would be a good gift for our three grand daughters aged 5 - 7 years but have felt them so inappropriate that they have been put aside for possible use in a few years time.
    Disappointing purchase

    Comments about Learning Resources Word Whiz Electronic Flash Card™:

    I received this through a gift card online store. It was "expensive" for what it does, and I had to put tape over the speaker in order to make it useful in the classroom.

            Comments about Learning Resources Word Whiz Electronic Flash Card™:

            To give a little background, my son is 4.5. However, he is more advance in reading, so even though he was under the age requirement, Level 1 was a great fit for him. He did come across words that he didn't recognize, such as par and jot, but this opened the door for us to discuss new words and their meaning. At this time, he doesn't get a lot done in a minute, but there is no set goal that he is required to reach. This allows him to challenge himself by trying to beat his previous record. Being the perfectionist that he is, there are times that he gets frustrated with himself for not doing better than his previous score or selecting the wrong letter. As we always do, we just remind him that its ok if you make mistakes and to just have fun.

            So, here is my honest opinion:

            Simple to Use – Everything you need is right on the front. A switch for changing levels and two buttons for selecting words.

            Grows with the Child – It offers 3 different levels that increase the length of words as well as difficulty (incorporating blends).

            Portable Entertainment – It is small and you can take it just about anywhere. It would make a great addition to your travel game collection.

            Fun for ALL Ages – After the boy went to bed, my husband and I had fun competing against each other to see who could build the most words correctly in 60 seconds.

            Overall, this is a great little product. I give it my full recommendation. Parents have countless options for their kids in the "mindless games" category. This is a fun, affordable game that also works the brain.

              Comments about Learning Resources Word Whiz Electronic Flash Card™:

              My five year old loves this!! He uses it all the time to learn how to spell words he doesn't know yet.

              He has soo much fun competing with his Dad and I to see who can spell the most words in x amount of time. He always wins!!!

              This is a great learning tool for pre schoolers on up.
