When first learning how to write, usually it's very difficult to have two identical characters look the exact same. I think this is the main issue with these kinds of fonts. If you look at two a's or any other character that appears a lot in text, it just won't seem right that it all looks the same each time, especially since the point is that it's trying to look out of the ordinary. An interesting way to fix this could be to have multiple variants of this font (at least for very common characters), which would basically be multiple attempts by the same 'preschooler' at writing the same character and then, depending on the use case, have some software automatically switch the font variant every time a character is used more than once. This could be a lot of work, but depending on how far you'd like to take it, it could make the font seem much more believable. But that's just my suggestion.

i really like it (do you want credit for it ?)
Why does it say "Generally safeguard your life from deep psychological trauma", in the Greek example?
It's a little weird, haha :P
PS: the iota (ι) in Greek does not have the tiny dot over it like the English "i", but good writing nonetheless.
How come your "first time writing" looks better than my regular writing >_>
