We have tiptoi books in our Preschool library, which you can borrow anytime (opening hours: Mondays and Thursdays from 1:45pm to 4pm). In order to use these books, you will need to purchase your own special pen called tiptoi pen, because the book it interactive. This pen allows you to activate the different functions of the book. If you don’t have a pen and would like to purchase one, the pens are available at Amazon is shipping orders to the US.

Tiptoi is an innovative learning system that allows children to discover the world in a playful way. If you tap on a picture or text with the pen, it plays different sounds, words or music. Children can work with it completely independently and receive many suggestions for playing and exploring.
