Hot Holiday Toy Now on Shelf: V-Motion Active Learning System Combines Learning and High-Tech Fun to Get Kids Moving
Chicago – VTech, the creator of the Electronic Learning Products category, today announced that V-Motion™ Active Learning System, its hottest toy for the holiday season, is now available at major retailers. A big breakthrough for junior gamers, V-Motion takes educational video gaming to a whole new level with a motion-activated system that engages active minds and bodies.
"V-Motion is a key item on my must-have holiday gift list this year because it is interactive and fun for younger kids. It provides the age-appropriate, educational learning qualities and price-value that parents look for when purchasing toys for their children," said Reyne Rice, Toy Trends Specialist. "I anticipate that V-Motion will be difficult to find as December gets closer, so I am advising gift-givers to shop now and tuck this gaming system away for holiday gifts."
V-Motion, which is recommended for children ages 3 to 7, plugs directly into the television to provide kids with a high-tech gaming experience using thrilling, age-appropriate learning games from favorite titles. It features a motion-activated, intuitive wireless controller that is adaptable for right- and left-handed play, and encourages active gaming while giving kids' minds a workout, as they learn basic math, reading, science, spelling and more.
Motivation for V-Motion
"VTech continues to be moms' ally by providing products they can feel good about giving to their children because they combine active gaming with curriculum and popular characters," said Julia Fitzgerald, vice president of marketing, VTech. "V-Motion is a great example of these elements working together, which is why it is definitely our hottest item for the holidays. Parents are adding it to their holiday shopping lists, retailers are requesting additional systems, and V-Motion continues to fly off the shelves."
