Review: V Tech Rhyme and Discover Book

Published 00:57 am

One of my life saving devices this shopping season was the V Tech Rhyme and Discover Book. I bought it at the beginning of the shopping season and carried it with me for use in stores, the car and restaurants.

V Tech is a global leader in the development of electronic learning toys and is well known for its electronic toys created for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and grade school. Each of their products incorporates learning activities with electronic technology. No recent recalls of it's products have been made and although in general I avoid things that need batteries and are electronic devices for the small children this book combines the reading, music, and rhyme in a manner that both the toddlers and I can appreciate.

The Rhyme and Discover book design is composed of primary colors and easy to distinguish pictures that are age appropriate for 6 months and up. The graphics/pictures are kid friendly and engaging. The use of just four basic colors for the outline of the book and then incorporation of additional primary colors makes it easy to reinforce color recognition with your children while reading the stories and each picture is easily identified as cow, pig, barn, mouse, etc.

The book contains seven nursery rhymes which are depicted on the front cover with a picture of Mother Goose, a star, Humpty Dumpty, mouse, dish and spoon and a baby in a rocker. Each story begins with the "book" reading the story to the child, but ends with a parent or caregiver finishing the Rhyme. After each rhyme the book asked identifying questions, like "Where is the cow?" and as children make the identification there are fine motor skill activities of each main character.

You might be interested to read about:

There are three light up character buttons on the center of the binder. Most noticeable is the lighted flashing face in the center of the binding of the book, which flashes as stories are told and read redirecting attention back to the book. The voice used in telling the stories is not too annoying, nor is the tone too low or high but seems perfectly pitched to appeal to children and not drive mom or dad too crazy.

Each page comes with a moveable feature easy for little infant hands and older toddlers to use. The moveable features include sliding back and forth, twisting and pushing buttons. Each one encourages fine motor skills and results in further exploration of the book.

The seven nursery rhymes are short and sweet with words and phrases that are familiar to children (who really knows what curds and whey are?) such as Hey Diddle Diddle, Humpty Dumpty, Old MacDonald had a Farm, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Rock a Bye Baby. I particularly like the questions asked at the end of each rhyme so that the words and story can be reinforced, it helps your child develop memory skills as well as develop their vocabulary. There is also background music with the rhymes so entertain all ages.

There is an on and off switch, as well as volume control button. It requires 3 AAA batteries, which the initial purchase included, as well as enclosing a coupon for a future battery purchase. It is easily wiped off with a damp cloth and even a baby wipe (ok so they were looking at it while having a snack and waiting for food).

The best part about this toy is the ability to interact with your child as well as allow them to explore on their own. Too many toys do not involve the interaction with the parents and this one actually encourages it with leaving the rhymes unfinished so that parents or caregivers may complete the rhyme with the children.
