Vtech Storio Interactive E-Reading System

VTech Storio Reading SystemThe Vtech Storio Interactive E-Reading System is the first animated e-Book reader for children. It is designed for children ages 3 to 7. This interactive storyteller is packed with educational activities and opportunities. It encourages children to read along with their favourite stories while developing their knowledge of letters and phonics. Parents can follow their child’s progress using tools such as reading records and a progress tracker.

There are three different ways for children to interact with a story. They can watch the story, with each word being highlighted as it is read aloud. They turn the pages by touching arrows and can touch any word to have it repeated to them. They can play reading games to develop literacy, wherein they can do activities like learning the difference between big and small, or they can use the story dictionary to press on individual words and have them defined within the story.

The Storio comes packaged with a Toy Story 3 storybook cartridge. Eight other titles are also currently available, with different titles suitable for different age ranges. These titles encompass many favorite characters, such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Dora the Explorer, and Olivia. Accessories available are a carry case to protect the Storio, a 9-volt adaptor so as not to spend so much on batteries, and a car adaptor.

The Storio is 2.8 x 17.5 x 22.3 cm and weighs 1.5 Kg. It requires 4 AA batteries to operate, which are not included. There is a 4.3″ full colour LCD touch screen, keyboard, stylus, speakers, headphone socket and slot for an SD card. Volume and brightness can be adjusted. Additionally, there is a USB port to connect it to a computer. The VTech Storio is compatible with both PC and MAC.
