V-Tech Toy-Tastic Easter Basket Review and Giveaway!!

Pssst....I hate to tell you this, but Easter is just, ehem, 6 days away!  I know this is a good thing, and I'm very excited about it.  But, if you haven't started your Easter shopping yet {like I haven't}, it may send you a moment of panic.  If you are looking for some ideas for your little ones, I've got a few great suggestions!

V-Tech Toys offers a number of great gift ideas for children of all ages, and I'm going to highlight a few of them.

This basket (aimed more at the little girls) includes 2 Inno-Tab games: Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins.  

A little from the company about each one:

InnoTab®Doc McStuffins software cartridge (Ages 4-7 years; MSRP: $24.99)

*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.
*Works with ALL InnoTab systems

InnoTab Sofia the First software cartridge (Ages 3-6 years; MSRP: $24.99)

*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).
*Works with ALL InnoTab systems

Our Thoughts:

My two youngest have been spending a bunch of time trying out the cartridges!!  We have had to start setting time limits so that they can each have a turn.  It certainly brought a new excitement to an old favorite.  Doc McStuffins also came at the perfect time since we are currently learning about the human body, doctors, and all things medical.  To say they like the games would be an understatement!

There's also a decent amount of times throughout the Easter weekend where waiting happens.  The Innotab3S is a favorite to throw in my purse and pull it out and surprise the girls with to make the time go faster.  Having games with their favorite TV characters is an added bonus!

Our 'boy' themed basket has two cute toys that we have been having lots of fun trying out.  The first is a Switch & Go Dino Turbo.  The second is a  Go! Go! Smart Wheels Vehicle.

A little info about them from the Vtech company:

Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Vehicles (Ages 1-5 years; MSRP: $7.99)

*These electronic play vehicles are perfectly sized for little hands and entertain children with a light-up button that activates music and sounds.
*Little ones will also learn about different letters and vehicle names through pretend play. 

Switch & Go Dinos®Turbo Assortment (Ages 3-8 years; MSRP: $9.99)

*Kids can rev up the action with flywheels that let the dinos race and roar across the floor. Each dino also emits realistic vehicle and dinosaur sounds and phrases that teach fun facts about each dino.
*The range features six new dinos, including Dart the Triceratops, Zipp the T-Rex, Spur the Stegosaurus, Fray the Ankylosaurus, Cruz the Spinosaurus and Spinner the Stygimoloch.

Our Thoughts:

Charger has been having a lot of fun reviewing his basket, especially since the Switch and Go Dinos were on his WISH LIST.  He was thrilled!!  We received Fray the Ankylosaurus, and he has been playing with Fray NON STOP since it was placed in his hand.  

It is right in his age range, and believe me Vtech got this one right.  He's not only playing with it by itself, but also using it to interact with other toys.  He's asking questions about dinosaurs, and having fun making lots of noise as he zooms it through the house.  Certainly a new favorite toy in our house.  I suspect that his collection of Switch and Go Dinos will grow soon ;)!

The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Vehicle wasn't quite as big of a hit.  We received a cute little ATV that plays music and lights up.  But, I will be honest, that with all the other new items, this one has pretty much just sat not played with.  When they do, it is played with for a few moments and then left for the Innotab 3S or the Switch & Go Dino.  It appears that it can be combined with a much larger playset (which we don't have), which may make it more appealing.  

V-Tech has lots of fun Easter gift ideas for the little people on your list in all different price ranges, and are sold in many local stores.  You can also purchase them online at the V-Tech store!

You can also enter to WIN a gift pack of V-Tech Toys!!  V-Tech has been super awesome and allowed me to give away to one of YOU all of the toys that we reviewed!! 

The Easter Pack includes:  

  • Sophia the First InnoTab Cartridge
  • Doc McStuffins InnoTab Cartidge
  • One Switch and Go Dino Turbo (random)
  • One Go! Go! Smart Wheels Vehicle
Retail value is approx $67.96.  Open to US addresses only (no PO Box).   The prize pack is provided by V-Tech and Coyne Promotions.

I'd love to add the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Vehicle to my grandson's Easter basket because it goes with his garage set he already owns. He'd love to have another vehicle for it.
