VTech Storio & MobiGo
VTech’s “Must-Have” Christmas buys

Storio is the new fun way to read! VTech’s Storio is an animated E-Book reader specially designed for children learning to read. The interactive animated storyteller enables kids to watch the story and read along. Reading games encourage story comprehension and the story dictionary lets children check the meaning of difficult words.

Aimed at ages 3-7, Storio will get children motivated and excited about reading, in a fun and informative way. Storio encourages children to read along with their favourite characters, whilst developing their understanding of letters, vowels and phonics. What's more, there are also parent-friendly extras to help monitor their development.

Featuring a super easy touch screen to navigate, this is the fun new way for pre-schoolers to learn to read. The easy-to-use format brings stories alive with fun animation sets to keep children entertained for hours. Children can play and interact in three different ways – watch the Story, play reading games and use the Story Dictionary.

VTech MobiGo - the handheld educational video gaming system

MobiGo touch learning system offers a wealth of opportunities for children ages 3-8. MobiGo is their own touch-tech toy that keeps them engaged while they learn. With a touch-activated screen and a QWERTY slide-out keyboard, kids get to emulate their parents' gadgets while learning from characters like Shrek, Disney Princesses and Dora.

Game play is an important way for children to learn about rules and problem solving, engaging their attention as they use imagination within different contexts to communicate ideas while having fun.

The MobiGo helps children with cognitive development and stimulates critical thinking through memory and logic games. It also stimulates visualization and memory, allowing the exploration of various environments and associated vocabulary.

All the games on MobiGo have clear verbal and visual instructions on how to play. There is also the opportunity, for older children, to skip the detailed instruction. MobiGo games and voice prompts allow children to control the pace of independent play while encouraging fine motor skill development.
