My daughter loves her new voxblock and listens to the stories over and over again. Wonderful product and have already recommended to friends. Love the mini books too and the fact there's no wifi. My 6 year old daughter was able to use it directly from the box with no input from was charged and ready to go!




It’s a robust quality product. It’s simple for my 5 year old grandson to use. He loves listening to the wide range of literature available.
