      Comments about GeoSafari® Laptop - Ages 8 & up Edition:

      We had this game when my daughters were younger, and we loved it. However, it has evolved since then, and not for the better, in my humble opinion. The screen that displays the scores/timer, etc., is miniscule, and very difficult to read, and the alert noises for a correct guess, and an incorrect guess are difficult to distinguish from each other.
      That being said, it seems very sturdy, and is easy to tote.
      I use it for having fun with the grandkids, while helping them learn, and it's a really terrific tool for that, despite its design flaws.

        Comments about GeoSafari® Laptop - Ages 8 & up Edition:

        My brother and I had GeoSafari in the mid-90s, and we had a computer game of it too. I loved it and used it all the time. So now that I have a 3rd grader, I bought this one for him. The design is different than it used to be (the new one is more like a laptop) and it works better this way. I love the variety of the cards; there are things at his level and some things that are still a little too hard, so it will still be interesting a year from now or even 2 years from now. We've had ours over a year now and I haven't had to change the batteries so I don't really see the need for a power cord. I wish they made card refill packs of different subjects, but there are so many included that we haven't run out yet.

        Oh my God! I can not believe I finally found it. I am in the Marines and now 28 years old with a 6 year old son. He is brilliant, so I will be buying him one. If it is anything as good as the one I had in 1999, I will be ecstatic. The only thing is the constant battery buying. Make a power cord/battery option and it's perfect. Thank you so much for making this product. Obviously it has had some type of impact if I can remember it after 14 years.

          This laptop is perfect for my 8 year old son. He actually loves learning with this laptop. The main downside is that it only uses batteries which is great for travel but for home use I would prefer a power cord.
