Recently, my five year daughter and I had the opportunity to try out a brand new and fun product from V-Tech. It’s called the MobiGo Touch Learning System. We received it over the weekend and already she’s a pro at it. She loves it and takes it everywhere she goes. I’m happy to say she doesn’t ask for my iPod Touch as much as before (Thank you V-Tech!).
I love that it’s portable and she can play with it anywhere. It’s especially great for those long, boring doctor appointments or long rides in the car.
Yesterday, when we were at the supermarket check-out, one of the parents I know tapped me on the shoulders and asked me where I got the MobiGo from. She said she hasn’t seen that anywhere so she was curious. I was happy to say that I got it for review purposes only. She said she couldn’t wait to buy one for her son who just turned 3 years old.
Look at that, it’s not available until August (unless you go to Toys R Us) and there are parents waiting to get their hands on the MobiGo for their kids!
Below are several features of the MobiGo Touch Screen Learning System:
- 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 older kids to text 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.
- Portable: Hand-held gaming console makes learning fun on the go for little hands and is equipped with headphone and AC adapter jacks.
The MobiGo Touch Learning System is ideal for children ages 3 to 8 years of age. Just check out my daughter with her new toy below:
