A fun way to help children develop basic pre-school skills such as phonics, words, thinking, problem solving, reading and math readiness, manners, taking turns, singing and dancing. Teaches more than 40 skills in all. Kasey the talking robot has a warm smile and an animated display screen on its belly, which makes for an exciting, interactive learning experience. Additional software cartridges are available to extend learning in areas such as science, foreign languages and more. Requires 3 D batteries. Batteries and additional software sold separately. Ages 3 to 7 yrs. Imported. 12H".
Kasey the Kinderbot is so interactive kids wont feel like theyre being fed yet more education. Just dont mention that hes a "learning toy." Play up all of the top-notch bells and whistles: a cute noggin holding great-sounding speakers; limbs that rotate wherever youd expect them to; and large, color-coded buttons and lights.
Kaseys 40+ functions supplement the educational regimens kids are already studying, and a few others: reading, math, phonics, spelling, problem-solving, observation, art, physical fitness, foreign languages, animal identification, and even etiquette. And get this: Kasey also offers music and stretch breaks between lessons. He comes with one cartridge loaded with a bevy of entertaining lessons; other learning cartridges can be purchased separately. The only downsides: there is no computer port for downloading, no power adapter cord to let you avoid buying more of the required "D" batteries, and the LCD screen is only 2.5 square inches, with no color. Requires three "D" batteries (not included). --Diane Beall
