Hong Kong-based VTech has released new Go! Go! Smart Wheels and Go! Go! Smart Friends play sets. The items feature proprietary SmartPoint and MagicPoint technology and aim to help children between ages one to five explore cause and effect relationships and strengthen motor skills through multi-sensory learning.
The Go! Go! Smart Wheels play sets feature SmartPoint locations which, when connected with a SmartPoint vehicle, respond with lights, sounds and music. The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Race & Play Adventure Park for example, features a roller coaster along with a catapult launcher, spinning Ferris wheel and a kid-powered ramp.
The new Go! Go! Smart Wheels play sets also interact with other Go! Go! smart wheels products.
Otherwise, the MagicPoint locations in the Go! Go! Smart Friends play sets feature music and sounds and are designed to encourage social play.
The Go! Go! Smart Friends Shimmering Seashell Castle (pictured) features three Magic Point locations that promote engagement, imagination and fine motor skills.
Along with the Go! Go! Smart Friends Sweet Surprises Treat Shoppe and the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Press & Race Monster Truck Rally, the new play sets are available at retail for US$24.99 to US$39.99.
Earlier this year, VTech got its Kidizoom children’s wearable line fitted with two new camera-equipped devices like the Kidizoom Action Cam 180 and the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX2. Both products are designed for kids aged four upwards.
