Manufacturer's Description

TAG No.1 Reading System - Turning reading time into playtime!

The Tag magic pen reads stories out loud and interacts with different elements of the book. As children touch the reader to the pages of specially printed Tag storybooks, children can hear their favourite characters speak, listen to pictures sing and hear the words on the page spoken aloud.

Tag works with a range of exciting book titles of well-loved characters. Children can explore classic books such as Paddington Bear and Cat in the Hat, or join popular characters such as Ben 10, Disney Princesses, Dora the Explorer and more. There are 18 exciting book titles to choose from and go on an interactive reading adventure.

Throughout the Tag books are fun learn-to-read activities and games, which introduce a variety of skills such as word building, reading comprehension, vocabulary and more. In addition children can unlock extra content online in the form of printable activities and certificates.

Amazingly easy to use, the Tag reader can store up to five books, allowing children to seamlessly move from one book to another. Tag also comes with an included book "Ozzie & Mack" that introduces over 17 learning activities.

Parents can also see their child's learning progress through the use of a unique online tool called the LeapFrog Learning Path. The tool allows you to see details as to which stories and activities your child is most engaged with and which reading skills they have been introduced to.

Firstly, good deal - because it is.

However, there seems something really wrong with this to me. This thing may have a more audiobook quality about it using character voices and the like but if parents have more than a supplementary reliance on this sort of thing when they read with their children they're really missing out, and so are their children.

The blurb talks about monitoring a child's progress online. Surely the best method of checking a child's reading progress is to make the effort sit down with children and not just supervise them, but take an active part in their learning. That is the very best way for a child to learn, with guidance and investment from their parents or carers, not like this.

Again not to take anything away from the deal and sorry to get on my lonely soapbox about it. I just have an issues about how this kind of toy-tech could be marketed as a replacement for an important developmental relationship. Of course, others may argue otherwise, but I haven't voted either way.

Surely people who take the trouble to buy these things are interested enough to read with their children as well. My grand daughter is just three and all the family read with her all the time!
She got a Leap pad bus learning system for Christmas and loves the independence this has given her.
Fully agree the way to know how/ what your children are doing is by spending the time together.
Hot btw:thumbsup:
