The Sesame Street My First Reader interactive story book is wonderful! My 2 year old son spends hours enjoying having the stories read to him and he never tires of pushing the fun buttons that make noises -- it is great when we are traveling because he can stay entertained while also learning!
The product is very durable also because he has dropped it several times and it keeps on working!

My son received this gift for Christmas last year - he was 14 months old. He LOVES this toy, and has since he got it. He's 2 now and it didn't take long for the book pages to get bent. If the pages don't lie perfectly flat against the reader, the sensors will not recognize what page you are on (sometimes the book it reads is not the book in the reader). He still enjoys using this book. As another reviewer stated, the toy is never "off" and will talk when open and if a button is pressed when closed. This can be annoying, but it allows me to get dinner on the table some nights. :)
Summary: Kids love it; parents, not so much.

    Comments about Publications International 1008806 Sesame Street My First Story Reader with 3 Interactive Storybooks:

    This was a gift for my two year old son. When I opened the package, I could tell the book was not going to be very durable. While reading the book, the front cover fell off and the book insert kept popping out (insert has very few pages and didn't keep my Elmo obsessed son's interest at all). The real problem was that the book was extremely loud, and there was no way to control the volume. I had to put my hand over the speaker, just to get my son from covering his ears as we read the book. This book will be returned ASAP!

      I opened this up with my 2.5 year old and it was confusing on what the shapes did on each page. Also, often, the page that was read was not the page that it was currently on. The books are also flimsy. We will be returning this.

      Its awesome that it reads to you and you can play a little game. But it gets old very fast. And there is no off button so there has been times where its gone off a few times without someone touching it. I just think it needs something. Just not sure what though.

            I bought this for my 18 month old when he saw it in the store and was very excited for it because he saw Elmo on it. The voice it uses is too loud and it is very annoying. It should have the voices of the characters instead. My son ripped up the books within a day. They are too flimsy. So far it's a waste of money, maybe he'll like it when he's older.

                    This product seemed good in the store, but soon as I got it home and out of the package, it would not shut up with its long sales pitch about how this product works. And then the books wouldn't sit properly in the case, so the system kept telling me to place a book in there when one was already in it. Totally annoying. I packaged that baby right up and returned it to avoid throwing it out the window of my house.

                      Product can take a lickin, but big issue for me, is how sensitive the reader is in regards to pages in the books. If pages arent perfectly flat, frustration will follow.

                      My biggest problem with this is that you cannot turn it off. In the open position, it just continues to talk "My first story reader, reads aloud sesame street stories for you and your children to enjoy" and "the batteries are low and need to be replaced" over and over again. The batteries died after 2 days. It comes with 3 books and asks questions. The kids can push a button to answer the questions so it is nice and they learn about color. I'm looking forward to moving on to the story reader for 3+ - this is just ok.
