This review is from: VTech Storio Animated Reading System (Toy)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.

Where about do you find the free stories? That sounds great, but I can't find a link to them anywhere.

when you buy the storio it comes with a usb lead, connect one end of this lead to the storio and the usb end to your p.c.. a box will appear on the screen. follow instructions. if this doesn't work go to their website. www.vtechuk.com. register your child's name and download their program that they recommend.
when you download the vtech program keep it on your desktop. then when ever you plug in the usb lead connected to the storio this box will pop up that you can download free stories onto the storio, remember to buy a SD card 1st.
hope this helps. mrs B

Does anyone know what size SD card is needed / recommended.
Ive got the storio but its all sealed in the box, was going to set it up for the little lad - but means having to open the packaging!
Was going to download the extras too, but not sure what size sd card to purchase.

sorry iv'e only just seen your post tonight. an SD card is for this is usually about 2cm x 1 and half cms. i thought they only did 1 size SD card, apart from the mico ones that you get for the mobile phone. the size SD card you can get is...2GB....128MB....AND SO ON. You can get these from comets..argos...amazon.co.uk.....pc world.
and dont forget to download from the vtech website......www.vtechuk.com

Can anyone tell me if the Storio has a British voice when narrating stories instead of the usual irritating American accent? Thank you.

I bought Vtech Storio for my daughters 3rd birthday. She loves it. But the batteries run out every week. That's the 3rd week in a row I have had to change them, this can't be right?
