I've noticed that a lot of instructive toys are always based on the animals. I suppose that kids need to study about the animals before they study that the real world has nothing to do with them.
Well, that was cynical. Yes, I know there are many careers available for those who have an interest in animals, and now parents have a way of developing their children's interest in animals with the Animal Discovery Channel Smart Scanopedia.
The Animal Scanopedia comes with a handheld scanner, a filled page of laminate animals, animals, and an artificial shape. By scanning the sheet or shape, the scanner tells you a lot of relevant information, as it sounds like the animal and its habitat.
