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.
