Stories, Music, Messages, and More

The Story Time Pad is a great way to jumpstart an early interest in reading. It's a compact media device that appeals to a generation of kids surrounded by portable devices and electronic readers, yet is educational and builds early learning skills. Kids will love pressing buttons and listening to stories, music, and messages you've customized just for them.

Personalize Content to Suit Your Child

What's special about this device compared to other e-readers designed for kids is that parents can gear this toy to appeal to their child's personal tastes. It comes pre-loaded with one story, one email, and three songs, and holds up to five stories, ten songs, and three emails at a time. Via a standard Internet connection, you can customize some of the over ten existing stories and print coloring and activity pages featuring Scout and friends.

Another fun feature lets you choose and customize pretend emails to your child from family and friends. Write them a special "I love you" or "Happy Birthday" message, tell a joke, or simply encourage them to have fun and learn. The device then plays these emails out loud for your child to hear.

Easy Setup with Step-by-Step Instructions

The instruction booklet guides you through the comprehensive setup process, which takes under five minutes. You'll need to download the LeapFrog Connect application for the Story Time Pad, connect the device to your computer via the included USB cable, and follow the clear online directions on how to personalize content by entering your child's name, favorite stories and music, and email messages. Once you save all that data, your child is ready to play.

Kid-Friendly Operation

The Story Time Pad is easy for kids to operate on their own. A switch on the back slides to turn the device on and off. (In the case of an auto shutoff, the device will restart with the touch of any button.) The clearly labeled buttons on the lower part of the interface let kids select story, music, and message mode. Our testers liked that in music mode kids could hit the paw button and press the letters to make silly animal and other sounds. That way, they're not simply listening, but are actually interacting with the device.

There's also an ABC button that starts a mode where letters say their names when pressed. When kids press on one of the four character buttons on the top portion of the interface, they'll hear Scout, Eli, Violet, or Penny say a few words.

The actual viewing screen, however, is much smaller.
Jenna of the Jungle
The only downside is the size of the screen, it is pretty small, but that doesn't seem to bother her, just me at this point.

LeapFrog is a great company, and makes very durable educational toys.

This is a great addition to LeapFrog's line. Here are my thoughts:

PACKAGING: Easy to get out of the box. Nothing excessive. Comes with a USB cord.

SETUP: You have to sign up for a parent account and go through about 10-15 minutes of downloads and choosing which options you want on the device. It's a simple process and lets you pick which stories, songs, and melodies you want, plus it lets you add your child's name and a couple of personal touches-- their favorite color and food (chosen from a list). You can also choose from pre-selected sentiments to "email" your child from you or anyone you choose. You'll get to have 3 e-mails preloaded on the device with simple sayings like "You make me so happy" and "I can't wait to see you."

One down-side is that you can choose only one name, so if you have more than one kid who'd use it, you're out of luck. Of course, you can go back and change it later, but just one name at a time.

BATTERIES: You can't use rechargeables. Requires 3 AAs, and it comes with only "demo" batteries. There's an auto-shutoff feature if you leave the device on accidentally.

APPEARANCE: It's about the size and weight of an e-reader like the Kindle or Nook. The actual viewing screen, however, is much smaller. The screen is just 2.5 inches wide by 1.5 inches high, and I wish it were bigger than that. We could have done without the three characters on top, who don't really have a purpose (they just say things like, "Let's listen to a story!" or "Let's listen to music!" when you press them.

SOUND: The speaker is in the back of the device. There are two volume settings. I found the quiet one too quiet, but the louder one is fine.

WHAT IT DOES: There are four functions:

1. The ABCs.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My daughter is almost 2 and has already really enjoyed this toy. I was skeptical because I got turned off to Leapfrog with the Tag system my son had. However, I found this tablet was great and easy to use. I especially like the design since my daughter always wants to play with my ipad. The games and connect software are easy to install and it takes a little over 10 minutes. You will need to use your computer for this device it does not stand alone.

I found it to also be very durable. We have already dropped it a few times and it has come away fine. However, the screen is really hard to read especially in certain lighting. For a tablet that is supposed to encourage reading it won't encourage anything if my daughter can't read it. She loves the games and the functionality is perfect but the screen is the main reason that I gave it 3 stars. I really wish they had gone with a better quality screen.

This is the same thing as the purple one. Screen is sort of small, but it works. Sounds quality is great.

Does your toddler envy your iPad or Kindle reader? Do they want to use their older sibling's Leapster Explorer?

This light, durable toy goes from box to playing within 15 minutes. The pad requires three AA batteries, which are included. There are no books or cartridges to buy.

There is a USB cable included to connect the pad to your computer, and the Leapfrog Connect application. Once you download and install the Connect application, you will connect the pad to your computer using the USB cable. If you already have Leapfrog devices like a Tag, Tag Junior, or Leapster Explorer, the USB cable is exactly the same. You will not need different cables to connect all your toys, they are the same. I had no errors or compatibility issues having multiple devices connected to one computer.

Once the pad is connected, you will be prompted to personalize the device by choosing your child's name, favorite food, favorite color, and favorite animal. You will be asked to select little "e-mail messages" from Mommy, Daddy, or customize. You can choose up to four games, out of ten possible games. You can choose music to sing with and melodies to play, including classical pieces by famous composers.

The only feature of this pad that I did not like was the view screen. It looked like an old pocket game, with a black, grainy interface. I would have preferred a nicer, color screen instead of this one, even if it pushed the price point up somewhat. With no additional books or cartridges to buy, I would have been fine with paying more for a better screen. With all the customization available, I was disappointed that it was only being used in this little screen.

Overall, this is a great product for your two to four year old. It is a good in-between toy if your child is not ready for the Tag Junior reader just yet.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My son is two, almost three years old and I thought this would be perfect for him. After a week of him playing with it daily, here are the things I loved about this:

*It's educational

*It's sturdy. It's been dropped more than once and I can't tell.

*It's the perfect size for his hands

*He loves it. LOVES it.

*I like it that I could customize it

*I like it that it goes on standby if he doesn't interact with it after about two minutes. Saves batteries.

*His favorite things to do are the ABCs and the music. Both he and I like the music selection.

*It's something he could do by himself, unsupervised, that keeps him busy for a chunk of time. Sure beats putting him in front of the TV.

Things I did not like:

*On the story mode, it says "Press the arrow to find out what happens next" after EVERY page, and it doesn't indicate which arrow to press. (There are two.) My son hates this. It's very annoying to me too. Out of all the things you can do with this toy, the story time is his least favorite thing.

*The screen can be hard to see. It's a monochrome LCD display so it's shades of dark gray on top of a light gray background. Also there is a plastic cover over the screen that is reflective so there is often glare.

Despite these things that I don't like, I still regard this toy as a hit because he's always got it in his hands and he's learning as he's being entertained. So happy we got it.
