The Poingo 2-Storybook Library: Thomas & Friends and Sesame Street is designed for use only with a Poingo Reader (sold separately) and is not compatible with the newer My Poingo Reader. Data for the two storybooks must be downloaded to a Poingo Reader from Poingo.com (see instructions that come with the product). The Poingo reading system is designed for children ages 3 and older.
Touching a Poingo Reader (it looks like an oversized pen) to the words and pictures on the storybook pages activates audio that narrates the story, enables songs and other sound effects, and triggers additional activities, including Look and Find.
The Thomas and the New Carousel storybook tells about Thomas the Tank Engine going to the dock to pick up the new carousel for the summer festival. When he loses one of the crates, Harold and other friends pitch in to help. The Sesame Street, Meet the People in Your Neighborhood storybook tells how Elmo and his friends meet their neighbors and learns about the different jobs they do, including firefighter, plumber, gardener, and chef. Both storybooks conform to the specifications for toy safety of ASTM F963-07 and ASTM F963-08.
