The Go! Go! Smart Wheels range of toys from VTech allow kids to indulge in imaginative play while listening to educational phrases.
VTech makes some really innovative toys and most of them have some educational element built-in them. The same goes for the VTech Go Go Smart Wheels range of toys.
VTech Go Go Smart Wheels is a Complete System
The best thing about the VTech Go Go Smart Wheels is that these not just individual toys but a whole system of toys that have the capability to work together when combined. Your existing cars fain in value when you buy new play sets.
Recommended age: 1 to 5 years.
This toy system includes components such as :
- The Go Go Smart Wheel Cars, Trucks, Jets and more.
- Playsets such as Garage, Airport, Ramp-Set etc.
- Extension Sets
Each Go Go car/vehicle has sentences and songs built0in which can be triggered in one of two ways. You can manually press the windshield-button or it gets automatically triggered by placing the vehicle at Smart Points (explained below) that trigger different sentences and/or songs.With this new system, VTech smartly adds value to the older vehicles because the additional Smart Points that come with the new play set can trigger new phrases and songs in your old, already existing cars and vehicles.
Kids will no longer find the old toys boring as they can add to their playing experience.
Understanding Smart Points
Here’s how VTech makes use of Smart Points technology.
Each VTech Go Go Wheels vehicle has microswitches on its bottom, in the back and in the front. Smart Points are designated places (tiny elevations) on the track of the playsets that trigger these microswitches when the toy vehicle moves over them.
Connect Them All
You can collect all your unique playsets and vehicles (fire safety, thrilling rides, etc.) using tracks for more fun time.
The Go! Go! Smart Wheels and the Go! Go! Smart Animals playsets use the same types of tracks and so the toys from these rages can be connected together. These toys use their proprietary SmartPoint technology which enables these animal and vehicle toys to provide responses.
Kids love building and rebuilding with these play sets. While the choo choo train moves by itself, the cars have to be pushed around.
Note: Go! Go! Smart Friends playsets cannot be connected as it uses a different technology (MagicPoint technology).
- Encourages creative play
- Strengthens motor skills
- Teaches letters and phrases
- Connect to additional Go Go Smart Wheels Playsets.
