This review is from: VTech Storio Animated Reading System (Toy)
I bought the STORIO for my daughters 5th birthday. Got it on offer at 39.99, which I think has turned out to be value for money, but not sure I would pay more for it. It was a hit with my daughter who loved the Toy Story 3 cartridge which came with it. I was impressed with the screen quality, the graphics/movie are excellent. She is just learning to read so loves identify the words. Some of the games are still abit advanced, but at least its means she will still use out of it over the next 18months. I logged into the Storio Webpage out of interest and was surprised to find it was possible to download further stories onto an SD card, and when I logged in (early December), they were free rather than the usual £4.99, so 12 extra stories for nothing!! I have purchased her a couple of extra Storio cartridges, which are a bit pricey but do feature extra games etc. I thought it fairly well built and like the way the clear cover folds back around the back of the console when in use. I also found that a cheap netbook cover from a certain shop where all things are £1, was a perfect fit, saved spending more on the offical case/cover and does the job just as well. All in all I was happy with this purchase and would recommend for those children just learning to read. I have an older daughter (7) who found it all a bit to easy and lost interest when she played with it. But perfect for my 5 year old.
