Whilst us adults are slowly catching on to the idea of 'electonic books' (and when I find a GREAT deal on a Kindle you'll be the first to know!) kids have been enjoying them for ages and this VTech Bugsby Reading System will be no exception. Particularly enjoyable is the fact that Amazon are selling them half-price at £14.54!
There are so many great features to this reading system it's tricky to know where to start! First and foremost, in my opinion, it's an expandable system with other Bugsby titles available featuring other well-loved characters like Scooby Doo and Dora the Explorer. The pen used to interact with the book is Bugsby himself (instead of just a 'boring' pen) a Bookworm who promises to take your child on magical adventures of reading and discovery, they can even create their own stories too.
Bugsby's little antennae light up (as if he wasn't cute enough!), he has volume controls, a jack to plug headphones into (not included) and there's no need for additional computer software either, just put the story cartridges, and 3 AAA batteries (again, not included) into his back and he's ready to go!
The book itself is brightly coloured, durable and can be kept clean with a damp cloth. You really aren't going to go wrong with this one and I've yet to find a bad review about it; believe me, I've looked! One last thing, if you choose the Super Saver Delivery option Amazon will even deliver him to you for FREE!
