VTech Toys Launch FLiP

Budding readers hone their reading skills, with great fun, on this touch-and-read e-reader. Merging technology, education and fun, VTech launches FLiP, the world’s first children’s animated e-reading system designed specifically for kids aged 3 – 7 years old at the International Toy Fair in New York. This is one product I know both my girls would love to have. Samantha would love any more advanced book or chapter books while Sarah would prefer the easy picture books.  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: 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.  FLiP 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 initially 11 software options (which will be added to in the near future) that include:

  • The Little Engine that Could
  • Disney/Pixar’s Cars
  • Shrek
  • Dora the Explorer
  • Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3
  • Disney Princesses
  • Olivia
  • Disney Fairies
  • Mr. Men and Little Miss
  • Scooby-Doo
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
  • SRP: $19.99

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.  FLiP 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.

FLiP will be available nationwide in August at all key retailers and online at FLiP Animated e-Reading System– Ages 3 to 7 – SRP: $59.99
