We received the World of Eric Carle™ My First Smart Pad Library and it combines eight great interactive books with a two-sided, hand-held electronic activity pad that’s perfectly sized for little hands. The eight books feature much-loved Eric Carle artwork, and focus on early learning concepts including alphabet, spelling, opposites, and rhymes, as well as animal names, behaviors, habitats, and sizes. The two-sided electronic activity pad features 51 padded letter and picture buttons that play letter names, alphabet games, animal sounds, and music. The books prompt children to press buttons while they read to bring the pages to life. The Smart Pad Library is recommended for children ages 3 to 6 and retails for $29.95 at retailers including Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Kohl’s and Barnes & Noble.
Looking at the Eric Carle™ My First Smart Pad Library I was thinking about my son and daughter and what they would get out of the book. Of course there is letter recognition for Miles, you can even play games where it asks you to find the first letter of a word like dolphin. For Zoe, she can easily read all of the books already so it would help her with spelling, so I like the spelling games. If you’re children are younger closer to age three, this is a fantastic buy because they have so much to learn from it. They can learn animal sounds, opposites, colors, letters, whatever you work on with them they can learn it.
I love the size and the feel of the buttons, I also love how it isn’t just another electronic game you also get eight books for the kids to read and spell with. Zoe’s favorite activity is to read, she could read every night. Here is a quick little video I made showing you the kids of games you can play and the sounds that it makes as you spell words with it.
