Built for the TV with a wireless controller and HDMI game stick for quick and easy setup, kids can start playing right away because there is no web connection, downloads or account setup required.

The On-the-Go Story Pal™ is an adorable, bunny-shaped, portable player that lets kids take story time wherever they go. It features 70+ stories, poems, songs and lullabies to encourage listening comprehension and build a foundation for a love of storytelling. With easy-to-navigate controls and a headphone jack, kids ages three and up can listen anywhere. Parents can personalize the On-the-Go Story Pal by recording up to 10 minutes of their voice reading their child's favorite story or create their own. They can also create a playlist of up to five stories, songs, poems or lullabies, while a timer allows parents to select a variety of stories, songs and lullabies to be played before the player shuts off. Free additional content is available for download and features four packs of additional stories and music.
Shop a rainbow of food with a grocery basket, shopping cart and an interactive food scanner in one. The Count-Along Basket & Scanner™ lets little ones pretend to grocery shop with a talking scanner that recognizes the play food pieces for learning fun.
