Is Talking Pen or Reading Pen good?

Postby DYJH » Thu Apr 05, 2012 3:20 pm

Hello,

I am thinking of buy Talking Pen or Reading Pen for my DD, she is coming to 3 years old. Is it good? Which brand is good? Hope to get one that can do English and Chinese.

Appreciate if anyone can share their thoughts?

oopsgal,

Vtech brand? Do they have a lot of books? Where can I find them?

Recently, I saw http://www.emoti.com.sg – Selling at Popular bookstore and http://www.olivesedu.com – from Educational fare and also http://www.leapfrog.com/tag/tag-jr.html which only have English books.

How old is your kids? the seller said kids can use until 12 years old.

Shoe,

So can your ds recognise words after using the Reading Pen? Which brand would you recommend?

My dd got the leapfrog system as a gift so I never really set out to buy it. DD never took to it. DS inherited it and enjoyed it and yes, can recognize words.
