LeapFrog Read With Me Violet

Watch your little one light up with LeapFrog Read With Me Violet and a complete set of five colourful books! This adorable introduction to reading experience is designed by LeapFrog learning experts to inspire and entertain early readers everywhere. Read With Me Violet provides cuddly storytime experiences that help lay the foundation for a rewarding lifelong love of reading. The plush puppy pal makes reading fun with five interactive, read-aloud books narrated by Violet.

Violet responds to every pet, pat, hug, and kiss – press a button on Violet's collar to start reading, and pat his head to turn the page. Violet loves to sing, too! Switch into Sleepy Time Mode when it's time to snuggle and listen to relaxing stories and eight minutes of lullabies. Start your child's reading journey on a cuddly note with an interactive plush toy that helps children develop reading comprehension skills to get them on a path to reading.

Learning skills

Turn reading time into an exciting new experience with this engaging toy loaded with storybooks, music, lullabies, and interact-and-respond activities. Read With Me Violet is specifically designed to provide early reading curriculum, and whether you're supplementing the precious time spent reading with your child or providing a new enriching activity, it helps build a range of cognitive skills.

Each of the five storybooks is designed around a unique core curriculum covering the bases from patterns and rhyming to narrative and concept. Violet asks more than 70 questions prepared by early reading experts to encourage active engagement and build important comprehension skills. The play-based curriculum is designed to delight and entertain, and is appropriate for children aged 2 to 5 years old.

Innovative learning approach

Discoveries abound when Violet reads out loud! Read With Me Violet includes five different book genres that offer a range of ways to build early reading skills as your child is exposed to different storytelling concepts.

  • The Pattern Book, "Let's Go Camping!", includes rhymes, refrains, and repetition to encourage children to predict what comes next
  • The Narrative Book, "Let's Find Violet's Toy!", takes children through a story put together with characters, settings, and a sequence of events
  • The Concept Book, "Let's Have a Party!", explores concepts like colours to label and classify new information
  • In the Rhyming Book, "Let's Cheer Up Eli!", children learn about the sounds of language while building phonological awareness
  • The Learn-About Book, "Let's Learn About the Weather!", helps reveal our world through reading, and reinforces the concept that print carries meaning
The LeapFrog difference

Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-aloud experiences are interactive. In other words, children learn best when they are actively involved in asking and answering questions, drawing inferences, and making predictions. Read With Me Violet was specifically developed to bring this interactive experience to kids in a magical way to develop key comprehension skills. As your child reads along with Violet, more than 70 spoken questions and audio responses help build comprehension skills that will get your little one on the path to reading success.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I fell in love with this long before my granddaughter even set eyes on it, & so wish I'd had something for myself when I was a child. It's a perfect size for cuddling and yet very durable despite being dropped repeatedly. I sometimes felt I wanted to rescue "her" but she proved my fears unfounded. I think (in a perfect world) the only extra I'd have liked would have been removable coats/covers for washing as it can get a bit dirty at times, but easily sponged clean.

Educationally, the books are fine. Patting Violet's head began the story, & it was lovely watching my granddaughter almost falling asleep to the slightly hypnotic voice. With the stories being interactive, it keeps the interest up more than just hearing it read to her. Mind you I'm not so sure on the cheek squeezing idea - she just tried that out on her year old pup - he wasn't quite so accomodating but we explained to her that Violet's a special type of dog who will allow her to do such things, but perhaps not to try them out on the local pups!!

Overall, a great toy & one that will last for some time to come I suspect.

We bought this for Christmas for our 2yr old daughter and she loves it. It's lovely and soft but durable too. The books are a good size but small enough for little hands and there's so much to do. I highly recommend it to anyone.

This is a fantastic toy. Our just under 2 1/2 year old loves to cuddle violet and has taken her to bed every night since Christmas Day. Although, rather annoyingly she did go to bed very well before she had Violet, she now wants to play with her for hours. May need to be a downstairs pet!

Our little girl loves the interaction with Violet, however more detailed books would be useful, especially as our little girl gets older. That said, she has been a very big hit!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My niece fell in love with Violet immediately. She picked her up and carried her round for hours before we could even turn her on to start reading! The dog is a lovely toy even without the educational element, it feels really soft and is perfect for a young child to cuddle. And it's so easy to use. You choose a story by pressing the collar, and pick up the corresponding book. Pat Violet on the head and she starts to read. I found my niece happily stayed put for several books in a row, previously unheard of! It's a great toy and a very well received one!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In my opinion this is one of the best toys that my little girl has ever had. It looks great - soft and attractive. So it passes the cuddle test.

It is also highly interactive and I feel that the interactivity has been well thought out. Sometimes you get toys that seem to be educational, but the fine details hasn't been considered. I feel that in this case, there must have been investment in testing with parents and children because the link between reading the stories along with the puppy has been built into the experience rather than just an afterthought.

The puppy comes with a number of books for the child to read along with. Each book has a number that corresponds to a number on the puppy's collar. So, for example, if you want to choose book 2, you press 2 on Violet's collar and she describes what the book looks like - so if the child isn't quite ready for numbers yet, books can be identified by their colour and the picture on the cover. Great.

When the child feels she has found the correct book, she has to pat Violet's head and then reading begins. Because the experience builds in finding the book and looking at the cover it makes the child much more likely to open the book and try to read along.

There are other modes, like sleepytime mode ... because children can't always be learning and sometimes you just want a lovely soft toy to cuddle.

Wonderful toy to please both parents and children alike.

My daughter is 15 months old and so she is a little young to appeciate the educational side of this toy.
She does sit quietly and listen to it read to her but overall she loves the teddy and carries it around everywhere with her, i am thinking in the next few months she will learn to appreciate the reading to her aspect part of this toy.
I however love this and its great to give to her to play with when i need to do something like put the washing on or cook dinner.
