Imaginative play is important for kids to learn how to do. It helps them to figure out situations and learn about the world around them. When interactive play is added to the mix, it enhances their learning during playtime. VTech® understands the importance of adding different types of play to help kids learn. They have various lines of toys for children that combine learning and playing to make the most out of playtime. They asked my kids to review some of their playsets to see if my kids would enjoy learning through play. These are the sets we received:
- Go! Go! Smart Friends® Enchanted Princess Palace by VTech®
- Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Treasure Mountain Train Adventure™ by VTech®
- Baby Amaze 3-in-1 Care and Learn Stroller™ by VTech®
Does your child think they rule your kingdom? The Go! Go! Smart Friends® Enchanted Princess Palace by VTech® would bring great favour to you from them! When extended, the palace is over four feet wide and has three levels of magical fun for kids to explore. Princess Darla takes your royals through her kingdom. There are five MagicPoint™ locations for kids to get to know her. She also facilitates learning through interacting with kids by chatting with them and singing fun songs with them.
My little royals were really excited to start to explore everything this palace had to offer. They really loved the ballroom because they could turn the gears to open the doors and turn the floor and fountain to entertain guests. Princess Darla was also such a gracious hostess. My little ones learned about colours and letters while being guided around the palace through music, songs, and lights on the palace.
If your kids love adventure, then the Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Treasure Mountain Train Adventure™ by VTech® would be a great set for them to learn from and play with! The motorized train responds to the nine SmartPoint® locations various pieces of track by saying cute phrases, playing phrases, music and learning the letter “F”! Motor skills are improved by cranking the gears, playing with the crane and manipulating the boulders in the gold mine.
Both of my kids enjoyed watching and listening to the train as it chugged along the track on its own, especially when it popped a wheely. The phrases the engineer said made us giggle and we loved singing along with him. They also loved winding the gears, popping the boulders into the gold mine and then watching it fall into the freight car as the train went along the track.
Children can learn while developing their nurturing side by playing with the Baby Amaze 3-in-1 Care and Learn Stroller™ by VTech®. This set comes with three different modes of play for children to enjoy. It also easily changes from a stroller to a high chair to a bassinet with a push of a button. Kids can take their baby doll on imaginary walks, feed baby and then put her down to sleep. The smart technology in this toy is able to recognize when the stroller is in motion or when it is being transformed. Children will be reminded to care for their baby, learn nutrition facts and healthy, and learn about music.
My kids loved caring for their new baby doll! They loved taking her for walks around our home, feeding her food and then putting her down to bed for the night. They also enjoyed flipping through the pages of her food book while listening to which foods were good for them learning not to eat too many sweets. The piano was also a big hit as they listened to the notes it played.
My kids really enjoyed learning through imaginative and interactive play with these playsets from VTech®! The talking sets helped them to put themselves in different settings while being able to learn about colours and counting. These toys also got them using their motor skills and interpersonal skills in fun and imaginative ways. The bright colours, music and repetitive songs and phrases reinforces learning while playing. If you are looking for a holiday gift for a little one, these sets really made learning more fun!
