The Vtech – V.Reader Animated E-Book System is not only a gift that your kids will love, but it’s a gift that you will feel good about giving! Vtech – V.Reader Animated E-Book System is a great way to get kids, ages three to seven, learning whether they realize it or not! The design of the V.Reader is kid friendly (the readers come in both pink and blue), they’re durable and well made (as are all of the Vtech toys I’ve had over the years), and I promise kids will think they’re playing (not learning) as they interact and enjoy stories on the 3.5″ screen. There are actually three ways to play with this awesome toy. Kids can watch the story, do reading games and use the story dictionary. They’ll love the graphics and even I enjoy that the story cartridges use the character’s voices.
Here’s the product’s description detailing all the great features:
Cultivate your child’s love of reading with the V.Reader Interactive E-Reading System. Designed for kids aged 3 to 7, this toy offers three ways to learn. Kids can watch, listen, and read stories, play reading games, and look up words in the story dictionary. The educational games encourage reading by improving vocabulary, writing, and phonetic skills. The V.Reader also features a touch screen sensitive enough for young fingers to operate with or without the included stylus. It’s easy to get started by downloading three books with the included tokens.
Your child will enjoy the V.Reader right from the start, with stories that come alive through interactive graphics, written words, and a narrator that reads the story out loud. The toy comes with enough tokens to download three books from the Internet, so your child can begin to discover the written word right away. The toy also keeps your child engaged with educational reading games, such as the Rhyme Time word-matching activity, What Happened? mystery game, and Hello! Hola! Bonjour! language lab. Each book comes with its own games that encourage reading comprehension, phonics, word building, and many other skills. The toy has its own activities that keep your young one entertained, including a coloring book, photo album, and writing practice games.
A story dictionary in each book helps your child get the most out of reading time. Develop your young one’s vocabulary by going through the story dictionary together. A progress log helps you and your child track growth in all the activities and games. When the toy is connected to your computer, your child can receive certificates of achievement as he or she improves.
As your child grows in ability, the V.Reader can grow too. A cartridge reader allows you to purchase copies of stories and games, and an included USB cable connects the device to your computer so you can download more exciting games and books. In order to store more books on your V.Reader, you will need to purchase a separate SD card . A cover closes over the front to keep the buttons and touch screen safe when the toy is not in use. Your child can also listen to stories through headphones, making it a great toy for the car or quiet time.
In the box you’ll find: V.Reader Interactive e-reader, What’s That Noise? storybook, user manual, USB cable, stylus, and six tokens.
