Sometimes, preschoolers need a bit of a push to get into reading for the first time. The Little Tikes Story Dream Machine is the perfect way to get kids reading without the intense focus required for early reading.

Designed for kids ages 3-6 the Story Dream Machine is a projector that projects classic kids’ stories from Random House Childrens’ Books on the wall. With added sound effects and colorful lights, kids can engage with story time like never before. 

The Little Tikes Story Dream Machine comes with one character figure that sits on top of the projector and three Little Golden Book story cartridges, including The Saggy Baggy Elephant, The Poky LIttle Puppy, and Tawny Scrawny Lion. Eight other stories kids can use with the Story Dream Machine are available now, including The Berenstain Bears and the Go Go Vehicles collection. Even more story packs will be available this fall. 

The Little Tikes Story Dream Machine and other story collections are available now at Amazon and Walmart for $49.99 and $14.99, respectively. Whether kids are just starting their reading journey or are already picking up new books faster than you can put them down, the Story Dream Machine makes story time more fun than ever!
