VTech Announces New Go! Go! Smart Animals, Brand Extension of Award-Winning Go! Go! Smart Wheels Line
Chicago – VTech (www.vtechkids.com), a world leader in age-appropriate and developmental stage-based electronic learning products for children, today announced the availability of Go! Go! Smart Animals™, a brand new extension to the acclaimed Go! Go! Smart Wheels® line. Kids will go wild for Go! Go! Smart Animals, offering exciting animal-themed playsets that let kids explore the natural wonders of a zoo, travel through a forest and explore a tree house with colorful animal friends. In addition, the vehicle-themed Go! Go! Smart Wheels line continues to deliver the cause-and-effect learning fun both parents and kids have come to love from VTech, with new playsets and vehicles, anchored by the towering Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate Amazement Park Playset. The expansive Go! Go! Smart Animals and Go! Go! Smart Wheels lines feature nearly 50 different playsets, accessories, animals and vehicles, and are available now online and at major retail locations nationwide.
"Go! Go! Smart Wheels was a tremendously successful introduction for us in 2013, and we are excited to expand beyond wheels to introduce new animal friends with a familiar play pattern that will resonate with parents and kids as educational and full of play value," said William To, President of VTech Electronics North America. "The Go! Go! Smart Wheels brand has grown to become a cornerstone in our legacy as the learning fun authority, and we believe the sky's the limit for this brand."
Go! Go! Smart Wheels — and now Go! Go! Smart Animals — capture the best of both worlds: traditional role-play infused with modern technology, for an engaging, multi-sensory learning experience that evokes kids' imaginations. Each playset features SmartPoint™ locations that can be recognized by every SmartPoint vehicle and animal in the line. As a vehicle or animal is rolled over a playset's various SmartPoints, it will flash and play greetings, fun sounds, short tunes and sing-along songs.<
The playsets feature colorful tracks that can be reconfigured or connected to other Go! Go!Smart Animals or Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets (each sold separately), to expand into an entire world of imagination, truly unleashing a child's creativity for endless fun. In addition, new deluxe vehicles, such as the Carry-All Cargo Train and Tractor & Trailer, offer connected vehicles with a detachable SmartPoint wagon and removable accessory. The deluxe vehicles engage children with even more ways to play, expanding their imaginations and giving them additional outlets to express their creativity. The extensive Go! Go! Smart Animals and Go! Go! Smart Wheels product lines teach important learning skills, boosting imaginative play through cause and effect, encouraging interactivity and providing an outlet for good old-fashioned role play.
