The system comes with the base unit and two starter books. The starter books are Ernie’s Neighborhood (an original Sesame Street storybook), and School Skills Sampler (an interactive workbook). These books are targeted for children in Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade.
The PowerTouch product is an interactive reading system that brings books to life at the touch of a finger. The system automatically knows the active page displayed. You just turn to any page and touch a word or picture for interactive responses.
The power button is the yellow button on the front of the unit. Touch it once to turn the toy on, and again to turn it off. When the product is turned on, the voice will say, “Welcome.” When turned off, voice says “Good-bye.”
Be sure the RESET Switch (located on the back of the Power Touch unit) is in the ON position. If the product does not seem to be functioning correctly, try sliding the RESET switch to OFF and then back to ON again. If this does not correct the problem, your batteries may be weak or completely dead. Try inserting a new set of 4 “AA” alkaline batteries.
The light lit at the top of the unit will indicate the active mode of the product. The default mode is the “Words” mode, so whenever you do not actively select a mode, the product will default to the “Words” mode. This will also happen if you make selections that do not correspond with the active mode.
