Talky Talky by Gemkids Horizon is the reading pen that helps teach kids how to read.

Press the pen down on certain words in special books by Gemkids Horizon, and the pen will read the word out loud.

Talky Talky also comes with a flash memory card that stores the words it reads.

This pen also works well for music training, learning other languages and braille.

Implications - Parents in contemporary society are inundated with products that claim they have the ability to improve a child's cognitive function. This has created a new consumer base. Corporations can capitalize on this market by creating simple products marketed towards kids learning to read or write at a young age. Products that are colorful and purport to help a child's learning process will benefit from parents looking to give their kid an extra edge.
