Here at Rave Central we are big fans of VTech learning toys. From dinos to cars and our beloved InnoTab learning tablets, our VTech toys are some of our favorites even after years of play. We've taken our InnoTab tablets on numerous vacations and roadtrips and each time we remark at how awesome they were for creating a little downtime in the middle of busy trips.
One of my favorite things about the VTech InnoTab is that you can reignite your child’s interest simply by buying a new game cartridge or download. We usually do a new InnoTab game for the big holidays to make the whole game system feel new again, and with Easter quickly approaching I was thinking it would be a great time to add a new game to our collection just in time for spring and summer travels.
This Easter I chose two cartridges that would be a great reminder of the fun we had at Disneyland this spring break, specifically when we got to enjoy the Disney Junior Live on Stage in California Adventure. Since that was the kids’ first introduction to Sofia and Doc McStuffins, I was really excited to further their excitement with these newfound characters by bringing them into the VTech InnoTab world as well.
- Learn reading, vocabulary, observation, logic, memory, math, visual skills, creativity, healthy living and more! The Doc is in!
- Read a story about Lambie and Doc in an e-book, color in Doc's Big Book of Boo-Boos and play games with Doc and her friends.
InnoTab Sofia the First software cartridge
- Seven learning games and two creative activities teach counting, colors, patterns, problem solving and more! Join Sofia on this wild and thrilling day!
- Learn how Sofia becomes a princess in Story Mode with the interactive e-book. Take pictures with favorite characters and scenes (camera activity compatible with any InnoTab® system with a camera).
And, while my son loves playing with the new InnoTab games, too, even though he’s on the lower end of the age range, I also wanted to get him something that he could really get excited about for Easter. Since he’s all about cars of all kinds, I knew I wanted to try out the Go! Go! Smart Wheels with him that I’ve heard such great things about.
These awesome little toys are vailable in numerous different vehicle options including 2 race cars, a van, truck, ambulance, fire truck, police car, tow truck, helicopter, cement mixer, and tractor, and even have separate tracks you can buy for even more fun.
Not only do these little cars light up and have sound and music, they also help teach children different letters and vehicle names while they vroom them across the floor. My little construction vehicle fan was especially taken with the bulldozer and loves to help “clear the road” when playtime is over by helping push all the small pieces into a pile to put away safely.
Another great choice for little ones is the Switch & Go Dinos Turbo racers that includes 6 new dinos to make for some awesome racing fun. With realistic vehicle and dino sounds and some fast racing action, my little guy loved adding these to his growing Switch & Go Dinos collection from his birthday and seeing how fast he could create a herd of dinos and then a pack of vehicles.
With Go! Go! Smart Wheels starting at $7.99 and Switch & Go Dinos at $9.99, they are definitely a budget-friendly basket option that will lend itself to hours of great imaginative play.
