I HAVE ALWAYS BROUGHT V-TECH GADGETS FOR MY KIDS, WELL I LIKE THEM TOO, THIS ONE IS A GIFT FOR MY YOUNGEST, SHE IS BEHIND ON HER READING AGE, SO WITH THIS SHE WILL BE ABLE TO BE MORE INDEPENDENT AT BEDTIME. EVEN THOUGH I STILL READ TO HER BEFORE SLEEP SHE ALSO LIKES TO READ ALONE. AND THIS IS WHERE THIS COMES IN, IT HIGH-LIGHTS EACH WORD AS THE NARATOR READS OUT ALOUD. SHE CAN FOLLOW THE WORDS TO THE STORY AND ALSO THIS ACTS AS A KIDS E-READER. THE V-TECH WEBSITE HAS ABOUT 20 OR SO FREE STORIES YOU CAN DOWNLOAD ONTO AN SD CARD THAT YOU POP INTO YOUR STORIO, JUST UNSCREW THE BATTERY COVER AND SLIDE IN THE SD CARD.

My five year old Granddaughter said "Its the best present I have ever had".

Her mother has to take it off her when she goes to bed.

They learn on their own with this and it makes them feel very grown-up.

Brilliant.

I hope they vastly extend the range of cartridges to include Maths etc, great scope for learning.

What a fabulous buy this was - my Great Nephew Lucas adores it. He's 3 and learning to read beautifully with his Mom and Dad already so this was an ideal gift for him, he loves the Storio and the interaction it provides. It's a fantastic teaching aid and he can be in charge of his own learning without even kknowing it. It came with Toy Story 3 which helped get his interest now he takes it everywhere! Excellent value!!

I bought this for my 3 year old as a christmas present. By the end of day one, it had been dropped, bashed and lovingly played with and survived!!!

My little boy thinks its great and loves the story and the games on it - he is also learning (although doesn't know as its not structured) and now tells me the name of the letters as well as the phonics.

Doesn't replace reading to him and is something that we can do together or he can do on his own. Great for in car too on the longer journey. Would recommend buying a set of rechargable batteries with it as they do run down quite quickly - although most parents are aware of this with any children's toy.

Would recommend getting an SD card too and linking into the computer. Not only can you get a progress report on what your child is playing and learning, but you can download addtional stories (some free some not), which adds variety and makes better value for money too.

Bought this for my daughter's 5th birthday and she loves it, she likes to be left alone to concentrate on it! She can manage most of it by herself and rarely asks for help, though its good to check in how she's doing. So far the stylus is still with us but wonder how long it will take before it goes missing, would have been good if attached by string or something! Look forward to more stories to be available.

I bought this for my 3year old daughter at christmas and it has helped was her reading and other skills.
We downloaded items from the products web site so that she wouldn't be bored with the books on it.
At school her teachers have noticed that her basic reading skills and general vocabally had improved a great deal and is ahead for her age.
