Giveaway: Win VTech’s New Mobigo Touch Learning System!
No more begging to play with my iPod Touch, the kids can now satisfy their button pressing urges with VTech’s new Mobigo Touch Learning System. I have to say, this toy is better than I expected. First of all, it offers games displayed on a colorful touch screen. Yes…colors! I’m happy to see vibrant animation instead of just green pixels of something that looks vaguely like a car or a flower.
Another thing I like is the Touch and Learn Game Pack cartridge which is included with the Mobigo. The games are fun and educational, so will strengthen your child’s skills in vocabulary, counting, spelling and logic. My 4-year-old says his favorite is Ice Escape, a game where you have to move blocks of ice so a penguin can get to the fish.
The Mobigo is for children ages 3-8 years and judging by my son using it for the first time it’s very easy to use. He knew how to play each game without me explaining anything to him. In one of the letter games you do get to use the Qwerty keyboard that slides out, another good feature.
This toy is also web-enabled so that in the near future you can download free games from the Vtech site.
For something like this, the price is $59.99, very reasonable for what is offered. They are now available exclusively at Toys ‘R Us and in August, the rest of nationwide retailers will be selling them as well as vtechkids.com. Oh yes, before I forget. There are also 11 licensed titled game cartridges which you can buy separately for $19.99. Those titles include Disney/Pixel’s Cars, Mr Men and Little Miss, Shrek and Toy Story 3.
I was trying to think of one thing that I dislike about the Mobigo but so far I can’t think of one thing. If it keeps the kids busy, I’m one happy parent!
(I was given a MobiGo by VTech for my review. I was allowed to keep the product, but the opinion I am sharing remains my own.)
