It's that time of year, everyone! The Holiday shopping season is upon us! (At least it is if you're like me and get an early start to avoid the mad rush of frazzled, last-minute shoppers in December!)
For the 2014 Holiday season, I will be featuring tons of great gift ideas for babies, kids, men, women, pets, and even for the person who has everything. We all have some of those on our gift lists, don't we? There will even be loads and loads of chances to win many of the gifts I am featuring. How cool is that?! You can check out my 2014 Holiday Gift Guide at any time from now till Christmas. Make sure to check often, as it will be growing by the day!
With 2 kids under the age of 5, I am always looking for fun, educational toys and activities for them to explore. Anything that teaches letters and numbers, counting, or reading skills gets an enthusiastic nod from me. After all, learning should be fun! We try and incorporate play and learning as often as possible. I want my little ones to be excited to learn, rather than just see it as work.
So when I got the opportunity to check out the Go! Go! Smart Animals line from the folks at VTech, I was definitely excited. We have several VTech toys, and the kids absolutely love them! We received the Go! Go! Smart Animals Forest Adventures Playset, as well as the Giraffe and the Zebra toys. (How stinking cute are they, by the way?)
The Go! Go! Smart Animals line is recommended for children ages 1-5. I love the fact that there is a broad age range, and that infants and preschoolers can all enjoy these fun, educational toys.
The Forest Adventures Playset is a ton of fun for little ones. Here are some of its key features:
There are 2 SmartPoint™ locations on this playset. Here, the various animals or vehicles come to life. When you roll them over one of these SmartPoint™ locations, they flash, sing songs, and say short phrases. Oh, and if your kids love to sing, you're covered there, too! There are loads of fun sing-a-long songs!
Sophie and Xander both had a blast playing with their Go! Go! Smart Animals toys. They loved pushing on the animals' heads to hear animal sounds and see the lights flash. They also really enjoyed utilizing the SmartPoint™ locations.
The best part? There are other playsets and animals that can be purchased! They are all compatible, and you can even connect the individual sets to make a larger, more fun playscape! How cool is that! I know one thing that Santa will be leaving under the tree this year!
Overall, we definitely love the VTech Go! Go! Animals line-up. These products are colorful, easy for small hands to handle, and have really cute sounds and activities. If you have a baby or preschooler on your Holiday shopping list, I'd definitely recommend checking out this great line. Oh, and did I mention that these toys are also super-affordable? That's always a huge plus in our home!
