Right out of the box, I love the way the pen looks. Right away, it is a fun worm. A book worm. Not only did Tucker have a fun time with Bugsby, Kambry showed a lot of interest to it as well. Tucker is 4. Kambry is 2. Both are great ages to teach letters, reading, numbers and more, as well as age 2 is a great age to get started with all of these!

We received a few books to check out and I have to say that both of the kids’ favorite was Bugsby Reading System Book – Wonder Pets. Kambry always says “MING MING”. Love it! Both of the kids love this show, so I know that Wonder Pets is a group of characters that will keep their interest for more than 2 minutes.
