A New Reading Resource - The Vtech V.Reader Review And Giveaway

I have always had a love for reading and have done everything that I can to make sure that Evan appreciates books as well. I have so many books sitting around and I've been wanting an eReader for several months now-I will be adding it to my Christmas list this year.



Vtech recently introduced their V.Reader for children. They began making high quality, innovative products for children in 1976. Since then, Vtech has become a name that many parents turn to for educational toys.

Vtech sent Evan the V.Reader and the Little Engine That Could Cartridge to review.

Stories come to life through vivid animation, narration, character voices, graphics, sounds and music. Young children engage with stories by watching, reading and learning. They follow their favorite character’s voice, play reading games and use the story dictionary.

The V.Reader is meant for children ages 3-7 and includes the V.Reader Device and pen, V.Reader Storybook Cartridge, Soft Cloth, and USB Cable.


It requires 4AA batteries that are not included. It has a spot for an AC adapter, which I think they should include with the V.Reader. Evan plays with it all day long and I can see us going through batteries like crazy.


The On/Off switch is at the top of the device.


It asks you to type in your name and choose the avatar. You then get to choose which activity you would like to do(read the story, go to your backpack, play games, go to the certificates, and settings). The screen is 4.3", which is big enough-but I do wish it was a little larger. Sometimes I have to get close to see what it says. You can still "turn the pages" if the cover is closed by pushing the green buttons down at the bottom. You even have the option to bookmark your page by pressing the green star button.


Evan keeps wanting to hit the backpack button, but nothing is saved there yet. Eventually, we'll be able to download several items from the Vtech site. More than 100 additional stories will be available via a download library located on the VTech Web site, including some free titles, and more themes and avatars to customize their e-readers. V.Reader is compatible with a PC or Mac computer. I checked it out and it says it won't be available until sometime in July. I do see that you need to purchase a SD Card(which I also think should be included). After the SD card is inserted, you use the USB cable to hook the V.Reader up to the computer and download stories and other items you want in your backpack and the Certificates area.


In the video below, I show how the story is animated and that you can use the touch screen by using the pen or your finger. You'll also see that children can touch items in the animated story to make them do things. I even closed the cover so that you could see that I can still turn the "pages" of the book by pushing the green buttons.


I have actually been shocked with how much Evan has wanted to play with the V.Reader. He was so excited to show it to his daddy when he got home. He keeps bringing it to me to switch out the "puppy" and "choo choo" cartridges. He will be 3 next month and I thought that since he was on the young end of the age recommendation, that he there wouldn't be as much for him to do. He really enjoys listening to the story and he does everything all by himself now.



As he gets older, he will be able to do more of the games that will help him with his reading. I think this is an excellent product that will hold his interest for many years to come and will continue to peak his interest in reading..

Be sure to visit Vtech to view all of the features of the V.Reader and their other products.
