We’ve seen e-book readers for cooks, for medics and for all sorts of trades, but now the kids get their very own such gadget. VTech, a maker of educational electronics recently unveiled the Flip animated e-book reader. This gadget is destined for a younger audience, as pointed out by its animated touchscreen and read-along feature.

Dozens of books will be available on the e-reader, word games too and a dictionary to help the little one expand his vocabulary. Downloable content is stuffed in there, too and you should know that most books are related to Disney and Pixar characters, so it’ll be a fun experience.

The first units will reach the market in August, for $59.99, while the e-book will cost $19.99 each.
