Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway by VTech Named to Walmart’s “Chosen by Kids” Top 20 Holiday List
Chicago – Today VTech announced its Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Ultimate RC Speedway™ was named to Walmart's "Chosen by Kids" Top 20 list, recognizing the hottest toys of the upcoming holiday season. The honor marks the second consecutive year VTech's acclaimed Go! Go! Smart Wheels line was handpicked by kids for a spot on the exclusive list.
"Our Go! Go! Smart line has succeeded in bringing a twist to classic play patterns, with innovative technology powering engaging, age-appropriate content for interactive play experiences," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway is our most ambitious Go! Go! Smart playset to date and our first to use remote control technology. We are extremely proud of the early reception this set has received and thrilled kids recognize its extreme play value."
The interactive Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway lets kids control the action with a steering wheel-shaped remote control that moves the RC SmartPoint® Racer through four action zones and over nine SmartPoint locations. The speedway is 4.5 feet of interchangeable tracks and features a stunt ramp, elevator, movable gears, starting flags and track switches that are all triggered by the RC race car. Ralph and his race car entertain little ones with a light-up driver button that activates playful music and fun sounds. He also teaches the letter "R" and the vehicle's name. Parents can purchase another RC SmartPoint Racer (sold separately) so kids can race a friend. (Ages 1-5 years, MSRP: US$59.99)
"We've made a tradition out of letting kids tell us which toys will be most popular during the holidays and VTech's Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway was a top choice," said Anne Marie Kehoe, VP of Toys, Walmart U.S. "The kids have played, laughed and spoken and their selections this year unveiled four toy trends and gave us a peek at just what they may want to be when they grow up. These trends include toys for Future Foodies, Veterinarians in Training, Adventure-Seekers in the Making and Dreaming Design Stars."
The Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway was recognized as an action-packed toy for kids seeking adventure and joined other seasonal toy trends indicated by Walmart, including innovations that inspire kitchen creativity and larger-than-life decorative playsets for future designers. The Go! Go! Smart line consists of Go! Go! Smart Wheels, Go! Go! Smart Friends® and Go! Go! Smart Animals®, which includes a 2015 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Award winner.
