LeapFrog Difference
Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-aloud experiences are interactive. In other words, children learn best when they are actively involved in asking and answering questions, drawing inferences and making predictions. Read With Me Violet was specifically developed to bring this interactive experience to kids in a magical way to develop key comprehension skills. As your child reads along with Violet, 70+ spoken questions and audio-responses help build comprehension skills that will get your little one on the path to reading success. “From reading aloud to reading along, Read With Me Violet reflects best practices in early reading instruction that helps your child develop important language and comprehension skills critical for success in preschool and beyond.” -Clement C., LeapFrog Learning Expert

Innovative Learning Approach
Discoveries abound when Violet reads out loud! Read With Me Violet includes five different book genres that offer a range of ways to build early reading skills as your child is exposed to different storytelling concepts The Pattern Book includes rhymes, refrains and repetition to encourage children to predict what comes next; the Narrative Book takes children through a storyput together with characters, settings and a sequence of events; the Learn-About Book helps reveal our world through readin, and reinforces the concept that print carries meaning; in the Rhyming book, children learn about the sounds of language while building phonological awareness; and the Concept Book explores concepts like colors to label and classify new information.

My 1 year old dances and sings along to the puppy.
Check your packaging though, inside the delivery box was just a cardboard box with this product in it (pretty sure it was a previous return). We have had some issues with the sound of this product and it gets stuck on words when reading storys sometimes.

I would return it but have you tried to take a toy from a one year old that plays and sleeps with it constantly. She loves it even when its turned off or sticking on words.

I love leapfrog products always have. They are always great quality and tons of fun. I ordered this for my step daughter when she was 2 she absolutely loves the dog itself and loves having cuddles and pressing all the buttons. She is now 3 and still loves the dog.
The only thing I would say is that she never had much interest in using the books, she loves stories but finds it hard to sit down with her dad or I with a book and use the dog at the same time. Even now being that bit older to much of a distraction although a lovely idea doesn't work for us. But depends on the child I guess.

Despite the "power" button on Violet's collar she will not turn off. Drains batteries insanely fast - we've gone through 3 sets in the month & half we've owned this. Sounds like a demonic creature when the batteries are dying and scares the daylights out of me in the middle of the night through the baby monitor. We are too the point that we tell our daughter its broken and taking the batteries. Save your money and buy Scout reader for reading and the other Scout to play/cuddle with.

My 3 year old niece is obsessed with dogs and wanted a Violet like her older sister has. I was excited to find this one since it is similar to the original Violet, but different in some ways (to avoid confusion, aka fights, between the 2 little ladies!). It comes with 5 books that Violet reads along with, although someone who knows how to read needs to assist her as to when to flip the pages.

Super cute toy! Bought this as a gift for a friend and it is really cute and seems to work well. It has various places to push to make sounds and to help the child read along w/ it. It comes w/ a set of 5 small books. I am not clear if you can erase these base books and add additional books to it however, which may be a concern in terms of flexibility of the toy.

This toy has several pros and cons.

Pros are:
1. Color coding works nicely with books.
2. Easy for younger to figure out.
3. Books are cute and will hold attention.

Cons:
1. No way to lock on one story.
2. A little on the bulky side.
3. Buttons occasionally will get stuck.
4. Cannot add more books to the library.

Our experience has been varied. My 18 month loves the books but does not use the puppy with them. She plays with both separately. My 3 year old plays with them together but the books are a little simple for him.
Our experience has been that

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas and it's cute but I have not once heard it finish a story. I tried to sit down with my daughter (she's 2 1/2yr.) and show her how to use it but she just wants to hit all the buttons. I normally love leapfrog toys but this one is just kinda a pain and not user friendly since the user is a child. Even I have hit a button when trying to move Violet while it's reading a story and it stops reading it. Oww well least I got it on sell and my daughter still thinks it's cute, might just have to take the batteries out and try in a few months.

My two year old doesn't quite have the patience to sit down with a book and a dog and wait for the prompt to pat Violet's head to turn the page. She gets distracted by patting Violet's cheek and hearing her say "smooooch" or hugging her, or patting her head to get her to bark. It's a cute dog and the buttons are really easy to push- I love that you don't have to try hard to figure out where to push. The stories are sweet and the narration is perfect- I think my daughter will like it in another year- but she's just too young for it right now.
