Summary: Difficult to Use
Comment: I tried 3-4 Reader Rabbit Programs. They are hard to use. The navigation is not good. It takes significant learning effort to get used to the programs. I work in Software from 10 years. If its difficult to navigate for me, the kids definitely will not be able to navigate freely. It will not allow you to skip something. If the kids are using the same thing again and again and They want to skip the things they are bored of they are out of luck. It will not allow skip. Apart from that the program is educational. Another negative: The program does not install on computer. Every time you need to put the CD in to run the program.

Instead of struggling with Reader Rabbit, I would highly recommend the Leapfrog Letter Factory and Math Circus. In fact I bought all Leapfrog DVD titles one by one after seeing the difference the Frog makes to kid's learning. My Kids 5 and 3 yrs love the frog.

The designers of Rabbit should keep in mind that its going to be used by little kids. Usability is the most important. Learn from Leap Frog.

Summary: 4 year old loves it!
Comment: My four YO grandson tried this out for the first time last night. His words "I LOVE my new game!" I was impressed with how easy he was pulled into the activities and the sense of acomplishment he had when matching sounds to letters and listening to the sounds and matching to words. The L sound is weird though. Doesnt sound right but for everything else it is great.

Summary: Not supported on Mac OS X
Comment: This product is not supported on Mac OS X as indicated in the product description. The product says it works with Mac OS 7.5 or greater. To me, 10 is greater then 7.5 so I assumed it worked. It didn't and when I contacted the company (I purchased it from EducationMax) they told me that my Operating System was to new. I've had the same Mac for 10 years and my Operating System is at least 2-3 years old. I'm in the process of returning the product. I'm rating EducationMax 1 Star, not Reader Rabbit.

Summary: Avoid - Bug in CD teaches kids how to spell incorrectly
Comment: The Piano portion of this game has a bug that teaches you how to spell incorrectly. There are no updates to fix this problem, and the manufacturer no longer supports the game.

Summary: Very Loud
Comment: My 5 year old loves this, however I find it loud and a bit to "young" for her. It does not offer anything for her to learn. It just goes over what she knows.
