We purchased this video game system for our then 3 and 5 year old after seeing the wonderful commercials where the mother tells her kids to play their videogames because they are so educational. I was excited for the purchase and also excited that my kids favorite characters were available on the games to buy. We quickly bought the Lion King game, Toy Story Game and Scooby Doo games for my kids to play. I was very disappointed immediately by the poor graphics on these games. This reminded me of almost a throw back to Atari games when I was little, the kids didn't seem to mind, but the graphics are very poorly done, especially for the price you pay for each game (around 19.00 each). They do teach my kids educational lessons and I appreciate that but the game system isn't reliable. We had to return two of the systems because they just quite turning on after about 2 months, after the second return that one died 4 months later and we were out the money because we didn't save the receipt. I think it is pathetic for the amount these cost to go through 3 systems in less than a years time. My children were not rough with the system at all, they are just poorly made in my oppinion. I would save your money and pass on purchasing this system, there are bettter products out there.
