Kid-testers were particularly drawn to the games applications. The FLY has three built-in games, and it comes with an additional pad of 10 interactive games and two fold-out game boards. The built-in FLYtones game was "awesome," according to testers, because it allows them to create a keyboard and drum set on FLY paper and then record their own music.

To make this product worth it, you've got to buy additional software. Eight add-on packages are currently available, each costing between $24 to $35, including FLY THROUGH SPELLING and FLY THROUGH MATH: MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION. Because FLY paper -- which comes in notebooks and pads that range in price from $6 and $10 -- looks like regular paper, kids can do their math homework on it. Overall, the FLY Pentop Computer is fascinating to explore and easy to use. It looks cool, and it's the perfect size to slip into a pocket or backpack.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
