Vtech VReader Product Description

Supercharge your child's reading skills with the new VTech V.Reader, the world's first animated e-book system designed specially for children.

With the vetch VReader reading system, children discover the joy of reading while seeing and interacting with well-loved characters like Shrek and Disney Fairies in stories with vivid animations. As the stories come alive with animations and sounds on the color touch screen, children take a journey into a world of imagination while developing the necessary building blocks to grow from a pre-reader to a confident and fluent reader.

Marketed by VTech as an "animated-e-book system", the VReader is very much like a Kindle, but for kids. Adding interactivity and animation to the reading experience, the V.Reader takes reading for children to a whole new level. More than just an "eReader" the Vtech V.Reader is an interactive educational device, similar to the fisher-price iXL learning system, the vtech mobigo learning system and leapfrog's leapster explorer. Vtech has done a wonderful job of cleverly integrating fun educational games that reinforce letters, reading comprehension, sounds & phonics, and logic, into a fun and kid-friendly handheld device.

VTech V.Reader Sale system
The Vtech reader itself has the look and feel of a real book with a plastic "book cover" that conveniently doubles as a button and screen protector. The V.Reader is designed so it can be held like a traditional book or, flip the cover back behind the device, and it becomes a handy tablet. The touch-screen capability is an especially nice feature for kids. It comes with a stylus that can also be used if preferred. Regardless of which method your child uses, the books, games, and menus are easy to navigate - as is the QWETY keyboard.

A Must Buy for Christmas!

Review Date: July 22nd, 2010
Reviewer: Steph (Amazon User)
We tried this item on a demo at a local store. My son loved it because it was just like Mommy's Kindle. We both enjoyed the annimation feature. My son has insisted that I help him ask Santa for this for Christmas this year and two weeks after trying it out is still talking about it.

To address a previous reviewer's concerns, it is animated, but it also shows and highlights the words of the story. Also, unlike with the tag and other reading toys, the page turning option does not appear until the entire passage has been read. I've noticed that this discourages my little button pusher from skipping the reading portion and just looking at the pictures.

I've done some research online about this item , and the Vtech website will soon have an ebook library similar to the Kindle. The website says that many of the books offered there will be free. Considering that the Vreader is expensive itself, having free books offered is definitely welcome.
27 months too young but will be great in a few months

Purchased from Amazon. I got for gift for 27 month old. He is a little young for it and only plays with it for a few minutes at a time. However, in a few months it will be great, especially when the CARS cartridge comes out as he is very interested the CARS "character". I would buy it again but for a 3 year old and up.
Perfect!

We just bought 2 modules. My daughter still uses it everyday. Anything that has this much longevity is amazing....and the fact that my daughter is really learning is great. I should note that my son has found it less appealing....but it could be that my daughter hogs it. :-)

My daughter is 5 and about to start pre-k and my son is almost 7 and will be starting 2nd grade. My son can read but my daughter cannot. This is perfect for both of them. First off, the fight over who can use it, and then neither wants to give it up!

I love anything that teaches my kids and holds their attention by challenging them. It's animated storyteller is great for my daughter and the dictionary is great for my son. The screen is about the size of most GPS units. The sound is not bad, and you can use headphones. Between the stories, games, music, etc., there is a lot to keep the kids occupied and interested. I think the target age is right on.

This is great for road trips, airplanes, etc. We love it and more so, we love that our kids love it.
Nice but expensive

Reviewer: My Old KY Home (Amazon User)
I have owned other VTech products in the past and this seems comparable in quality and education value. It is a nice reader because you don't have the books just a cartridge. In the past my kids have lost the books or torn out pages to books that went with their reader. This way the book is electronic. The graphics are nice and the reading is clear and slow. I only have the book that comes with the V.Reader but it seems you are still able to touch the pictures of the stories and have them make noise or move in some manner.

As others have mentioned the stylist is not attached so it can be lost. Fortunately, fingers will work on the buttons and screen. This makes it difficult for me to push the buttons, but they are just the right size for my 7 year old. Overall it is a very nice product.
Like a Kindle for your little one......LOVE IT!!!!

Reviewer: T.Denault (Amazon User)
This is a fantastic reader for kids. I was not interested in the Tag by Leapfrog.....it seemed boring and I would rather read to him anyway. But the V.Reader is a wonderful addition for your little reader. My son loves me to point to words as I read to him. The V.Reader highlights each word as it is read for your child....encouraging word recognition. My son absolutely loves it!!! I highly recommend this reader for your child. My son calls it his "Kindle" (just like mommy)....too cute.

Very excited to purchase these for my 2 grandsons. They are 4 & 5 years of age and both starting to read. This will be the perfect gift that will keep on giving for years. Whether they are into video games or just watching too much television I think these will instill the love of reading and using their own imaginations. I highly recommend this item.
Educational...But Also A Bit Expensive

Reviewer: Book Reviews Weekly (Amazon Verified User)
The VReader animated e-book works quite well for what it does. Your kids will enjoy learning with the unit and having fun at the same time. The unit comes with one cartridge, and others are sold separately which could become costly after a while. Also, a power cord would have been nice as the batteries are likely to need replacement often with extended use.

The unit is durable as stated, and kids will find it fun to use. The price may be the biggest obstacle for most parents. If VTech offers numerous free e-books in the future, that may help offset the initial cost.

I gave it 4 stars due to overall cost of ownership (cartridges, batteries, etc...)

Bottom Line: If you can afford it, your younger kids will love it.
BEST PURCHASE EVER!!!

My kids absolutely love their Vreader. I have twins boys that recently turned 4. I purchased them their very own Vreader's for their 4th birthday.

This is the best purchase that I have made within the last year. It keeps them occupied for 30 min 2-3 times a day. Games are great for younger kids and are educational, however entertaining as well. One of the downsides is the amount of batteries that are required. The benefits certainly outweigh the downsides and I would recommend to everyone that has younger kids.
love it

My 20 month old love this toy we watch the story and he loves using the arrow button to turn the page. He is still to young to use alot of the different functions, but loves watching the story's and a great toy to take in the car on long trips. I always start the story and then put the plastic cover over the reader so that only allows him to touch the arrow buttons. Screen color and story's awesome.

I got this for my three year old granddaughter and she absolutely loves it. It is extremely easy for her to use and she never leaves home without it. She sits with her one year old sister and reads to her. It's teaching her the love of books.
