Flimsy and do not work after awhile.
I wanted to love these but I had to return all of them! I bought 3 of these for the holidays. They are so thin and delicate and the first day it broke. So I had to return it. Recently in the last week the other 2 have been acting funny. They will not shut off or erase anything that has been written on it. When you go to check the battery, it is a little cumbersome to remove but when you pull it out to see if it will resolve the issue it won't shut off even then. The company that produces these need to make them more sturdy and not so flimsy. The remaining 2 have been sitting on my refrigerator and just stopped working. Will not buy them again.

I bought two of these for Christmas presents, they each quit erasing after 1 DAY!! So frustrated!! BTA-MALL was easy to work with to return them and credited my card quickly. Free return shipping. But my kids loved them... And now I'm afraid to buy replacements. I bought one for my nephew that is an older model. Kinda afraid to give it to him.
Save time and skip buying this product until they get the bugs worked out!! Like everyone else we tried replacing the battery (which is why I bought this model), but it didn't help. So disappointed! BTA-MALL shouldn't keep offering this until the problems are fixed!!

Fun, easy to use!
Had seen these in a store prior and the kids had a blast trying them out. Cheaper through BTA-MALL and make sure you get the ones with a sleeve! Only had them a week now and my only reason for 4 stars in stead of 5 is that the stylus is forever getting lost. I finally tied a string around it and the Boogie Board and now no more trouble! Fun, easy to use. I do worry about them breaking if the kids aren't careful about where they put them (ie. on the floor or bed!). Otherwise, a fun, inexpensive way to keep them entertained!

Stopped working after a week.
This really sucked because I loved this! It didn't erase at first. but I found a quick fix mentioned in a review either on this or another boogie board product (pinch the upper right corner then hit erase). Not only did it work, but then the erase button has worked thereafter without having to continue to do so. I don't have any idea how these work (and haven't truly been interested enough to check) but am assuming a loose connection or something that was fixed by pinching the corner. And it was amazing after that, I was going through lots and lots of sheets paper doing math and this totally replaces all of that. Makes for a much cleaner space. Until it stopped working for good, after about a week. So I spent $9 (through BTA-MALL) on a replacement battery pack to replace the battery and have a couple spared. Except putting in a new battery didn't help. It still didn't work. Luckily the batteries came within time to start the refund for this product, still SOL on the $9 cost of the batteries -.-

The battery is good..
Stopped working Christmas night. The battery is good...the erase button just won't erase anymore. If you push in just the right spot on the top left of the button at the same time as you push the button it will sometimes work. SAD! This happened to both boogie boards I bought. Lasted less than 24 hours!

Batter is a plus, Neoprene sleeve is excellent
This is our second boogie board. My daughter, now 10 has the original board we got her several years ago. I love the jot as the green is more vibrant than the white/gray of the original. I love that I can keep the stylus right with the board in a snap in slot. This will ensure my son doesn't miss place it if he gets in the habit of always snapping the stylus back to the board. I also love the slim case that it comes in. The neoprene sleeves does fairly good protection overall.
The plus with getting the JOT over the original is that you can replace the battery. We have had the original for 2 years, and I feel it is going strong but once it is done, we have to toss it. So a battery is a no-brainer!

Replaceable battery? still doesn't work!
I am a little disappointed. My son loves this product and it keeps him quiet at church. I bought it because of the replaceable battery. It has been 8 months and it just stopped working, so I bought a new battery, replaced the old one and it still doesn't work!!!! I contacted the company, but haven't heard back. Will Update if I hear back. It is suppose to have a year warranty, we will see. Jackie Peck

Boogie Board is a great little note taker
The boogie board is great for taking notes or anything that normally would end up on a wasted amount of paper. I have had mine for several months now and it has held up well. The screen is nice and legible, does not scratch easily and responds well to different writing pressure. Once you are done with a note, press the clear button and the screen will flash and be ready for your next round of notes. I use mine around the office for quick jotting notes and other information. I loved it so much I got one for use at home as well.

Would not purchase
So I bought three of them for the family trip to italy. We went from July 9 through the 18th. The ones I bought for the kids ww r e used daily and we're kept in the neoprene jackets. All three of them succumbed to pressure being placed on them just by normal use, including mine, which results in blue writing or drawing or whatever versus thr green. And it seems to mostly be around the edges. They haven't used theirs since the day after we got back. My little one just picked her sisters up to use and wrote it, pushed the erase button.... and nothing. It's not been overused or abused. The battery isn't dead. It is no where near the maximum allotment of pushes. It just broke. Disappointing as I spent $30 something dollars for basically 9 days of use.

He absolutely loved it but after 2 days it wouldn't erase
This is the 2nd for our 4 1/2 yr old grandson. We got the first for him for Christmas. He absolutely loved it but after 2 days it wouldn't erase. We returned it to BTA-MALL and got a full refund. BTA-MALL's customer service is amazing! This one is the replacement, exactly the same, and we're hoping it's a better one. I give it 5 stars for being an amazing, fun product and 1 star for the fact that a lot of people have the same erasing problem after a short time. That averages to 3 stars. 3 days and still working. I'll keep you posted and add or remove stars accordingly.
