What It Is

Bring stories to life with the new, enhanced version of the Story Reader line of preschool books. The new version features a lighter, more compact shell with an ergonomic carrying handle for greater portability, and books with more durable spines. Story Reader 2.0 is a portable electronic storybook reader that helps kids make the leap from being read to, to reading on their own. Using proprietary technology, a narrator almost "magically" reads the book aloud as each page is turned, while Story Reader 2.0 adds vibrant sound effects and music. The starter set includes the Story Reader 2.0 unit and one Toy Story 3 title. Three-pack book refills are also available.

Story Reader 2.0 books feature other popular licensed characters as well, including Disney's Cars, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, Ni Hao Kai-Lan, and SpongeBob SquarePants. Story Reader 2.0 requires four AA batteries and includes a headphone jack for quiet play.

This is an update of the popular, original version that has been on the market for more than seven years. However, it's important to note that earlier-version Story Reader books will not work with the Story Reader 2.0 platform.
