LeapFrog My Own Story Time Pad provides personalized play for preschoolers ages two and up. Kids can watch fun animations and listen to stories, emails, and music as they explore the world of Scout and Friends. Parents can personalize the Story Time Pad with their child's name, favorite stories, special "emails" from friends and family, and a unique music playlist. This device comes with batteries intended for in-store demonstration only. It requires three AA batteries for continued operation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
