VTech V.Reader Recap and Giveaway – CLOSED

Learning to read is one of a child’s greatest milestones. VTech knows this and has just introduced the V.Reader. Think Kindle but for kids. The V.Reader is the coolest gadget around with a fun, exciting and educational twist. A quick rundown of the features:


  • Animated Storyteller: 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.
  • Downloadable Fun: (coming soon) With a rich download library, more than 100 additional stories will be available via a download library located on the VTech Web site (, including some free titles, more themes and avatars to customize their e-readers. V.Reader is compatible with a PC or Mac computer.
  • Track Progress: Parents can join in on the fun and learning process with the features that include progress reports and reading certificates.
  • Lovable Characters: Children’s favorite licensed characters come to life and help them learn with 11 software options (with more titles to be added in the near future).
  • Touch and Read System: Kids have two play options – listen and follow along to the story as read by animated characters; or touch the screen and play reading games to learn each word or sentence.
  • Reading Skills: Your child learns the necessary building blocks to grow into a fluent reader. V.Reader teaches reading comprehension, vocabulary, phonics and word building, along with a story dictionary that describes word definitions in a manner that’s easy for them to comprehend.

Shae and Shaun have been playing with the V.Reader for the past week with fun results. Shae likes the games that came with The Little Engine That Could. Shaun likes the dictionary; he likes to get his own explanation out before the V.Reader then see how they compare. So far the V.Reader is a great addition to the kids educational toys/tools and I look forward to seeing how Shae grows into it and Shaun teaches his little sister.

V.Reader will be available exclusively at Target June 20 and nationwide in August at all key retailers and online at
