I have never used an e-reader before so I was very interested in reviewing the Binatone KidzStar e-reader, especially as my Daughter is homeschooled, I'm thinking it might save some space in the house by having her books on a device rather than scattered all over her bedroom floor.
The device has a 7 inch colour screen and has a great rubber casing that protects the e-reader, in an attractive colour that really stands out. This casing can be removed to reveal a much more grown up looking e-reader, if the child prefers. Also the Kidstar e-reader can be used to watch videos, play music and view photo's.
First thing we did was charge it up as it needs a ten hour charge before it can be used. That was easy as it has a built in battery charger, so all we needed to do was plug in the USB lead (that is included) and plug it into our laptop.
Then this morning once it was fully charged, we looked online for a book to download to try it out. There are places online where you can download lots of different titles for free, these websites are suggested in the manual. I knew my Daughter was desperate for the new book by One Direction so as a nice surprise I paid to download it from Waterstones and installed it onto the e-reader. It was so easy to do and I was thrilled that I managed to do it with no problems what-so-ever.
If you want to encourage your child to read, Binatone’s KidzStar e-reader is the perfect fun and educational device for any budding young genius! Available exclusively at Argos, the crystal clear 7” colour screen allows easy access to your library of e-books, audiobooks, videos and photos. The in-built zoom option allows younger children to enlarge text for easy reading! At just £34.99 this could be the perfect present for your child.
Big thumbs up from the Syders!
