disclosure: We received the following for the purpose of review from VTech. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I love interactive toys almost as much as my daughter does. Having a toy that makes noises that you can control is something that Jemma has so much fun with. But, what makes the following toys more fun is that they have great sounds! You will hear some catchy tunes (believe me, they are catchy!) and animal sounds.
The VTech Go! Go! Smart Animals Forest Adventure Playset arrived at out house a few weeks ago. Jemma was so excited to see something arrive for her that she begged me to open them up right away so she could play. Before I even had them out of the box though, she was playing. She walked around with her new animals and started to sing along to their music.
Here are some facts about the VTech Go! Go! Smart Animals Forest Playset… They include:
- The ability to explore the forest with the included SmartPoint™ bear as he plays with animal friends and responds to various SmartPoint locations with different phrases, music and fun sound effects.
- Motor skill strengthening activities which include two SmartPoint locations and four manipulative features including a turning disc, gate, sliding squirrel and twisting butterfly.
- Colorful tracks that can be connected to other Go! Go! Smart Animals or Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets (each sold separately) to encourage children’s creativity.
Like I said, we were playing with these as soon as they were out of the shipping box. Putting the toy together was super easy and Jemma even helped out. She knew immediately what to do to make her new toy “work” and played with it for a good 20 minutes the first time! The animals hung out by themselves some and on the track some, but she had fun either way!
The Forest Adventure Playset is suggested for children age 1 to 5 and I totally agree with that. I love that it can be played with by such a good age range. My littlest and middle child both enjoyed it! You can purchase the Go! Go! Smart Animals Forest Adventure Playset for the SRP of $14.99, a very affordable price for such a fun toy!
You can purchase additional animals for your playsets for only $7.99. They are a perfect size for even the littlest hands. They have a light-up button that plays those fun animal sounds and songs that I mentioned. They teach letters and animal names! New animals include monkey, tiger, lion, hippo, giraffe, elephant, zebra and alligator. Each animal works with SmartPoint locations on Go! Go! Smart Animals and Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets (each sold separately).
I know many of you aren’t even wanting to think about the holidays yet but I think these would make great gifts for those little ones in your life. They are fun, educational, and affordable… a combination you can’t beat!
