Madelyn playing with her VTech MobiGo

VTech’s done it again with another great product that kids love to play with and learn from. Way to go VTech!

VTech MobiGo

Madelyn got a VTech MobiGo a few days ago and as you can see in the photographs, she loves it and takes it with her everywhere. My 10 year old went to camp about 35 minutes away and the MobiGo was great to have in the car. I actually got to listen to grown-up music while she played with her MobiGo! What was really great is that Madelyn, 4 years old, didn’t get frustrated with any of the games or have to ask me for help.
I’ve reviewed a lof of electronic toys for kids over the last 8 years and MobiGo is one of the easiest for young kids to pick up on right away and keeps preschoolers and grade schoolers interest very well.

Madelyn loves the squirrel game during which she has to draw/trace horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines that magically turn into bridges, swinging ropes, wheels, elevators, and more that help get the squirrel get back home.
The MobiGo keeps Madelyn’s attention very well. Not that I want my kids to be staring at a game system for hours but what’s important to me is that the game be entertaining enough (and educational.. of course!) to keep their attention and MobiGo’s Touch through completion.
The MobiGo is a comfortable size for preschoolers to hold and the smooth grips on the sides make it so that the MobiGo shouldn’t slip out of her hands.

VTech MobiGo details:

  • Touch-screen: Applying touch control that includes tap, flick, pat and drag & drop, kids learn with fun on the same technology as parents do with their touch-screen devices.
  • Educational games: From coloring, drawing and playing instruments, kids can discover a wide variety of fun and engaging learning games. MobiGo teaches a wide range of skills including math, vocabulary, spelling, logic and categorization. The slide open QWERTY keyboard introduces and facilitates typing skills.
  • Downloadable Content: Additional games and content will be available for download so kids can customize their MobiGo with the latest innovative games and continue the learning and fun for years to come. This feature hasn’t officially launched yet but I can’t wait to see what’s available!
  • Portable: Handheld robust gaming console makes learning fun on the go for little hands and is equipped with headphone and AC adapter jacks.. headphones must be purchased separately.

MobiGo Game Cartridges

11 licensed title game cartridges will be available for purchase for approximatly $19.99 with more being added in the near future.
Titles include:
Ben 10, Disney/Pixar’s Cars, Disney Fairies, Disney Princesses, Dora the Explorer, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Mr. Men & Little Miss, NASCAR, Shrek, Super Hero Squad, and Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3.

A short video demo

Watch this short video of Madelyn playing with her VTech MobiGo. You can see how easy it is for Madelyn (4 years old) to use the touchscreen in this video and how great the graphics are.
(sorry about the shaky video and that I don’t sound very enthusiastic.. I wasn’t feeling so great when I shot the video)

I would love to win a MobiGo for my Son’s 4th birthday which is in a couple of weeks. He does so well with games on my iPhone (because of the touch screen), I bet he’d be able to use this with little help.

I would like to win this for my son because my son rarely asks for anything and from the moment he saw this toy he wanted it, and as he is such a sweet and helpful little boy, I think he really deserves it. And I’m not just saying this because he’s mine, but just because he really is a sweet boy.
