VTech Flip is Now VTech VReader – Launches Monday

We had gotten a chance to play around and view the new VTech VReader when it was known as the VTech Flip a few months ago and now it’s finally coming to market. The VTech VReader will launch on June 21st and is designed to engage kids for hours of play. It will retail for $59.99 and still contain all that original functionality we observed months ago. Stories will come to life with vivid animation, narration, character voices, graphics, sounds and music as they watch, read, interact and learn. Your kids can follow their favorite animated characters such as Toy Story, Shrek and Dora the Explorer, play interactive reading games and view the story dictionary which helps children discover the context of the stories. More than 100 additional stories will be available via the download library , including some free titles, themes and avatars kids can use to customize their e-books. Additionally, each time a child’s V.Reader is connected to a PC or Mac computer, their reading scores are automatically updated to their parent’s registered account. At launch, 11 software titles will be available and retail for $19.99 each.
