I just got this for my son's 3rd birthday and so far he seems to be entertained by it. Some of the games are a little advanced for him even though the books I got were age appropriate. But I know that I am supposed to be there with him to guide him and it is there to challenge him so eventually he will catch on. The downfall is batteries. I put in 2 brand new sets of batteries and they were both out of power in about 10 to 15 minutes (FYI-rechargeables last less time than regular batteries). I had to go to [...] and purchase the AC adapter for in the house and the car charger (both made by VTech and about 10 dollars each) [...]and other places were too expensive. So don't expect this thing to be a cordless toy unless you only plan your kid to play with it for 10 minutes at a time (which is barely enough time to finish reading the story). V Reader-[$], AC Adapter-10.00, car adapter-10.00, additional book cartridges-20.00= a lot of money! Not saying it's a bad product, just expensive.

This is a wonderful product, with one drawback...the batteries. This was a gift for my 3 1/2 year old son this past Christmas. It quickly became one of those toys that he would not put down, which leads to my one dislike, the batteries. When the vreader was purchased, the charger and battery pack were not available, and for the number of batteries that this thing takes, I figured it would last a lot longer. Boy was I wrong. I am still currently looking for the charger and rechargable battery pack, which from reading other posts on here, says that it is available in the store, but I cannot find it. The only charger that I can find is the car charger, which does not help me if my son is using this in the house. It would be nice if the accessories were available when the product came out, or at least if they were, they should be easier to find. All in all, I would recommend this unit to any parent or child. Just be a little proactive and order the charger and battery pack with the purchase...if you can find it.

I was thrilled when my son got this for Christmas. Sadly, the toy doesn't meet up to V Tech's normal standards. I'm not sure if we just got a defective one or if they are all like this, but the one we have has issues with the batteries. We put in brand new batteries, and we have to push the power button at least 20 times, hard, to get it turned on, and even that doesn't work. Sometimes I have to take the batteries out, put them back in, then maybe smack the back panel, and then it'll turn on. Also, the response time seems very slow. When my son wants to go to the next page, it's slow to do so, and the animation seems jerky and slow. Not too thrilled with the construction, either. My son is 3, and the cover on this is on plastic hinges that seem really cheap. I would think this would be made out of more durable materials, but it's just plastic. I was pretty bummed, especially since the books/games are not cheap, they are half the price of the reader itself! That's like an xBox game costing one hundred dollars! Overall, I am not pleased with this product, and would def discourage any of my friends from buying.

My son received this toy from Santa Claus when he was in Pre-K. It was a big hit! He really enjoyed being able to choose which book to read. It didn't take him long to figure out how to navigate through the different features. He also received the backpack carrying case which worked out great! It has slots for the book cartridges to fit into and kept everything orderly. His V.Reader is now packed up and waiting for his little sister to get old enough to use and enjoy it. Bottom line, yes I would recommend it!

GREAT TOY- AWFUL BATTERY CONSUMPTION

by mom of 2 boys

It is now 4 days after x-mas and i have had to replace the batteries twice already on my childs v-reader. the programs itself are great, my 4 year old, and 2 year old think they have their own I-PADS. They are engaging for my 4 year old and the 2 year old just does the book part, but that is fine. graphics are great much better then they looked in online demos. HOWEVER- THE BATTERY ISSUE is unacceptable. replacing them 2 times in 4 days is crazy. i don't have any ac adaptors from vtech laying around the house- so now i have to purchase these as well on top of an already expensive product. this should have been included. would have been great of it could charge with the adaptor or through the computer. these will be fun for a time but my children like to move from room to room with them and will not sit with an adaptor plugged into the wall. this aspect is just so disappointing. wish i would have read about this in reviews prior to buying

My grandson is very active and loses interest quickly in everything he does, toys included. He loves for us to read to him. We normally do this at bedtime due to our work schedules. We have bought several forms of readers for him, he likes them but, they have never held his attention like the Vreader has. He takes it with him everywhere he goes. In fact, we have to take it from him at his bedtime in order for his Papa to read to him. He is facinated with the certificates he earns. I just love hearing him say "Nana...look what I did." I think this is a must have for anyone with small children. It is amazing to see what they learn. Only downfall is the batteries consumption but, that means he is using his Vreader and learning while having fun. I would like to see more reading games and character (Super Why, Dinasaur Train & Mickey) books that can be downloaded online. Thanks VTech.

My littles (3 year old twins boy & girl, and a 2 year old girl) absolutely love their V-Readers! I cannot say enough good things, we have 3 of them. They take it everywhere, and if we forget them, they actually cry (or when the batteries die). They use it in the house, in the car, EVERYWHERE! It's just amazing how it keeps their attention, and I love that they are learning at the same time. The best part is that my 3 year old son is interested in it also, especially once we got the Toy Story Cartridge - it was love at first sight for him, and he hasn't lost interest yet. The batteries are an annoying problem, because we go through so many within a few days. But it's worth it to see the smiles on their faces. They seem to learn something new everyday, and never get bored. This is hands down, one of the best products we've ever had for our "Littles". Thank you, Vania H.

Overall my kids love this product and it has helped my autistic son out a lot. It's allowed him to work at his own pace and progress at the same time. I would definitely recommend this product in general. The biggest flaw with this is the battery consumption and that the adapter outlet is complete junk. Both the VReaders I have don't respond well to either adapter. You must buy rechargeable batteries because I have found the adapter to be useless most of the time and kids don't want to sit there and mess around with trying to get it "just right" to work. You can get it to work but they cannot move the cord at all or it auto turns off since there is no power now. This is beyond annoying. If you don't buy rechargeable batteries I will just let you know right now you will be replacing 4 AA at least once a day. And no, I'm not kidding.

This thing rocks! We bought one for my 4 year old son - he loves it - and he's learning. This thing doesn't only teach them words and definitions - they're learning puctuation, context and order of events. We loved it so much, we bought another one for my daughter. The only downside: BATTERY CONSUMPTION - whoo! I'm so glad they didn't put one of those screws to lock the battery compartment because I've had to change the batteries in this thing a million times. We have the car charger, and the adapters now, but I wish they'd have put an internal battery in this thing that could be charged up much like a cell phone or laptop. I don't like having the kids playing with them while the adapters are plugged into the walls. That's the only downside though, this thing is totally worth it. Overall - this thing is pretty awesome!!!!!!!
