Reader Rabbit's Toddler is part of the Learning Company's multi-subject educational game series for children. As its name suggests, this reading centered title is meant for children as young as 18 months, and thus focuses on pre-reading skills such as sound matching, letter and shape recognition and creative play.

In the introduction, Reader Rabbit and his friend, Mat the Mouse, enter a magic book where there are many places to explore. From the main page, toddlers can color, solve simple puzzles, play a matching game, and follow along to simple finger-play songs like Itsy-Bitsy Spider. There is also a Bubble Castle for popping bubbles and a jungle where they can spot animals and hear their characteristic sounds.

The Version 2.0 release of Reader Rabbit's Toddler is an upgraded version of the original game. The primary difference between this and previous versions is the use of click-free mousing and the ability to move through the program by striking random keys, making it more accessible to the targeted 18 mos - 3 year age range.

Especially easy for young children because simply moving the pointer is enough - no mouse clicks are necessary. Touching any key also works.
