That's why I was so excited when I learned about the MobiGo 2 from VTech. I am a huge fan of this brand already, and own several of their phone systems. To me, the name VTech has always been synonymous with quality and innovation. So of course, I was incredibly eager to discover what their kids' learning toys were like. Or more importantly, if this portable learning station could keep my active kids' attention for more than 10 minutes.
So what exactly is the VTech Mobigo 2 and why should it be a go-to toy in any home with children? Let me tell you all about it!The new MobiGo 2 Touch Learning System is a multi-functional, educational handheld system that allows kids ages 3-8 to enjoy on-the-go play and hone their creativity. Kids will learn basic skills such as math, vocabulary, spelling, reading, logic, drawing and more. The QWERTY keyboard also helps kids become familiar with a keyboard layout.
MobiGo 2 comes equipped with a new motion sensor and microphone in addition to the touchscreen all for the same price of $59.99. The new motion sensor provides total game control, allowing kids to create action movements within games and programs while playing , and the NEW microphone provides different methods of game play. Blow into the microphone to move objects, blow of dust, or initiate other special effects. Or speak into it to give a command or trigger an action. Yep, this baby recognizes voice commands.
MobiGo 2 also functions as an e-reader, photo album, photo viewer, art studio and coloring book, and is a great value as it comes pre-loaded with three great games that take advantage of the product’s many features. You can also download plenty of additional games, apps and e-readers for a very reasonable price. (These range from around $2.99 to $4.99 each.) This great memory feature allows you to expand the MobiGo often as your child grows. How cool is that?!
The games are a lot of fun, too! My kids love the Hamster Highway game, as well as the Shooting Gallery. Their absolute favorite feature would have to be the Art Master, though. They really enjoy being able to draw and color using the MobiGo 2. My kids happily play with their MobiGo 2 for hours at a time, if I'd let them! Since there's so much to do, kids won't get bored quickly. Even my youngest child who is almost 2 likes playing with this toy!
Check out the MobiGo 2 on the VTech website for more info.
