Make the most of your toddlers screen time with this interactive learning system that "reads" a story to him via the family TV set and builds story comprehension and vocabulary skills. Once the easy setup is complete, pop the included DVD-ROM, Where The Wild Things Are, or any of the compatible classic books on disc into the DVD player and the animated and narrated story begins to play. With the provided child-friendly wireless console, kids can choose an interactive version of the story, where they will be asked comprehension questions about the plot or can highlight words on the screen to learn their meanings. There is also a game-playing mode, which reinforces the storyline through fun games, and a self-reading mode for emerging readers who want to turn off the narration and try tackling the words on their own. The sturdy console has large, easy-to use buttons for pausing or playing the story, turning the pages forward or backward, accessing the menu or activities, and answering questions. This system runs on three "AA" batteries (included). --Cristina Vaamonde

I almost didn't send it out as a gift, I liked it so much.
My friend's child has adopted it as his new "video game" and it has replaced his obsession with his game boy. He laughs and laughs at the interactive chocolate making machine and plays it over and over and now knows the story by heart. His parents love it because it keeps him busy AND works on reading skills. They say it is easy for him to operate and everyone loves it!! I guess I will have to buy another one just for me. I am planning on getting the rest of the books too!
But, the first time we tried to hook it up it wouldn't work at all. We tried and tried every method at least 14 times to no avail...the directions were adamant about NOT returning it to the store giving us the idea that we must just be to stupid to do it right, or we assumed it was our DVD player some how...
Let me just save you the hassle...if it doesn't work the first time, take it back to the store. When we got a replacement it worked fine and WAS extremely easy to set up.
According to the directions it works with any DVD player except NOT Xbox or Playstation.
If it doesn't work, be persistent, if it can work with my cheap $35 cyberhome DVD player it can work with any DVD player. It is a great toy for 3 year old, probably even 2 year olds. Although it says to 7 years old, my 7 year old daughter was extremely bored with it...
Read With Me DVD comes with "Where The Wild Things Are", a story about a boy who uses his imagination to leave home after being sent to bed without dinner. (He doesn't really leave, but uses his imagination to turn his room to a forest.) He experiences a range of emotions before realizing that he would rather be where he is loved best - home. The pages in the story turn, and the illustrations are animated to help keep youngster's attention.
There are a few options when you first start a Read With Me disc. Your child can choose to just have the story read to them, to play in the pages, or the games feature. My son prefers the play in the pages feature. The words are printed on the screen, and highlight (or light up) as they are being read. After the narrator is finished reading the page, an asterisk icon appears, inviting children to play in the page. After pressing the matching button on their controller, your child is asked a question about the setting, the characters, the illustration, or the storyline. After answering correctly, children have the opportunity to push the asterisk button again to be asked a different question, or they can push the forward button to flip to the next page.
So far, my son has only used the DVD that came with the system, as he is receiving several other titles over the holidays, but I'm sure they are just as entertaining as the one that came with the system. Though Fisher-Price recommends this product for children upto seven years old, I don't see children that old being able to maintain an interest in the storylines, as most of the titles released so far are intended more for pre-school aged children.
