VTech Learning Toys Review & Giveaway

I received complimentary products from VTech in order to provide this review. All opinions are my own.

When VTech contacted me about another review opportunity I was VERY excited. I think they are a great company that focus on fun AND education. This time around they wanted us to review toys more focused for toddlers even though my almost 4 year old daughter (when did that happen) is having fun with them as well. I have added ALL these toys to my Holiday Gift Guide because they make GREAT presents!


We received FOUR toys from VTech to review. So this review might get a little long, but there is an awesome giveaway at the end for one reader to win them all! Which means a GREAT Christmas gift! The first thing I noticed when opening each box was that each one came with a warranty registration which is so important because things break or incase of recalls.


VTech® Chomp & Count Dino™ Review


The Chomp & Count Dino was the first toy I opened BOTH my kiddos are enjoying learning about colors, numbers and food with the adorable new Chomp & Count Dino. Simply place one of the eight brightly-colored play pieces in the dino’s mouth and he is suppose to recognize each piece (there are 8 total) but sometimes he mixes them up. I love this toy because there was no assembly required and batteries were included. :D

 

Kiddos can either play in food or counting mode and the dino responds with rewarding sounds and phrases all while introducing colors, numbers, shapes and more. Press the question button and kids can answer the dino’s questions to show what they’ve learned. Five shape buttons help kids learn shapes and numbers, while spinning the disc on dino’s back will play sing-along songs. The dino can also be pushed or pulled by a string for even more fun melodies. I'm not a fan of strings for babies, but this toy is technically of babies at least 12 months. My daughter loves pulling it along.

VTech® Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser™ Review


The Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser is a 2-in-1 toy that grows with your child and transforms from a floor play toy with detachable steering wheel activity panel to an exciting ride-on toy. This toy was by FAR the hardest to put together and I ended up with a few extra screws after reading the directions over and over again to make sure I put it together correctly. It also said it came with 18 screws and I only received 15 (with 3 extra in the end). Although it did come with batteries. I also had to apply the stickers myself which I don't like because I feel like it's a lot of pressure. LOL



We decided to save it for little man for his birthday because he is no where near ready to ride even though the interactive steering wheel features driving, learning and music modes with more than 80 songs, sounds and phrases that introduce animals, opposites and first words. You can also turn on the engine, move the gear shifter or press the horn to hear realistic driving sound effects. Children can pretend to drive to six different fun locations with arrow buttons teaching the concept of direction and road safety. Attach the steering wheel to the cruiser and it becomes a fun ride-on toy. The Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser also has a fun front activity panel and under seat storage children can fill with small toys for more fun on the go!

--------------------
 
VTech® Grow-Along Music Center™ Review


I LOVE this one! I was a band geek and then a choir chick, so this is my favorite. It was easy to put together and only had three screws. It also came with batteries. With the Grow-Along Music Center, children can pretend to be musicians and sing along to the music. As they sing into the microphone, five colorful lights correspond to children’s voices, or they can play with wacky voice-changing and amplifying effects.

 

They can also rock out with three instrument buttons that play guitar, drum and saxophone sounds. Five animal piano keys introduce kids to instruments, colors and animals. Kids can choose between Learn & Play mode and Sing-Along mode to become learning super stars! It has different size settings so your little one can play at the perfect height. The top also comes off so they can play on the floor.

--------------------

VTech® Smart Shots Sports Center™ Review


Parents can cheer on their little sports stars with the Smart Shots Sports Center. This electronic sports center features a soccer goal and basketball hoop for a fun 2-in-1 experience also comes with both balls. Your kiddos can kick the soccer ball into the net to hear fun sounds or toss the basketball into the hoop and the magic sensor will count up to ten each time a basket is scored.

 

Three buttons introduce shapes, numbers, opposites, sing-along songs and more. Turn the gears or flip the page to hear fun phrases and sounds. The sports center also features a light-up screen that plays a variety of fun animations and shows numbers, shapes and letters to reinforce learning. I'm giving this to both kiddos for Christmas because I think it could really help SweetPea with her large motor skills in a way where it isn't so hard for her. This toy wasn't too difficult to put together although it didn't come with batteries, but only requires double A's.
