"Go! Go! Smart Wheels shows true innovation in the preschool toy aisle," said Jim Silver, CEO and editor-in-chief of TimetoPlayMag.com. "Go! Go! Smart Wheels combine vehicle play and learning in a fun, smart way and the range is one of our favorite toys this holiday season."

Go! Go! Smart Wheels enhance one of the most popular play patterns – vehicle play – while teaching important learning skills, encouraging interactivity and providing an outlet for good old-fashioned role play. Each playset features SmartPoint™ locations that can be recognized by every Go! Go! Smart Wheels vehicle. As a vehicle is rolled over a playset's various SmartPoints, the car will flash and play greetings, fun sounds, short tunes and sing-along songs.
The Airport Playset features a Smart airplane (included) that responds to the airport's six SmartPoints. The airplane also teaches letters and sounds, while the airport strengthens fine motor skills and builds children's imaginations through pretend play. The tracks can also be reconfigured or connected to other Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets (each sold separately) to encourage creativity. Ages 1-5 years, MSRP: US$24.99.
With vehicles starting at as little as US$7.99 and complementary playsets from US$14.99, Go! Go! Smart Wheels demonstrate a renewed fervor for value, quality and innovation in the toddler vehicle aisle. Affordably priced, this extensive product line features more than 20 different playsets, vehicles and accessories including a Train Station, Construction Site and Garage that can connect and expand into an entire world of imagination, truly unleashing a child's creativity.
