VTech Amazes with Innovative New Baby Doll Line
New York – VTech continues its proven success of combining classic role play with technology, as it introduces its all-new Baby Amaze™ line. Injecting innovation into traditional baby role play, the new line launches with two exciting learning dolls and a 3-in-1 stroller. Baby Amaze toys are currently available at Toysrus.com, and will be available exclusively at Toys"R"Us® stores nationwide in August.
Baby Amaze is an innovative assortment that uses technology to teach nurturing concepts and developmental milestones. From a doll that plays peek-a-boo and one that learns to talk with a growing vocabulary, to a stroller that transforms into a high chair and bassinet, Baby Amaze toys foster independent play, motor skills, imagination and language development among children ages 2 to 5 years.
The Baby Amaze product line includes:
- Baby Amaze™ 3-in-1 Care & Learn Stroller™: When little ones place their baby doll in the 3-in-1 stroller, its smart sensor recognizes movement and plays fun sounds and melodies. Transform the stroller into a high chair when children can hear baby care reminders that introduce nurturing concepts and healthy habits, while they pretend to feed their doll. Turn the high chair into a bassinet and the doll falls asleep listening to more than 20 classic nursery rhymes and lullabies. The 3-in-1 Care & Learn Stroller also has keys that introduce numbers, counting, letters, colors, places and animals, as well as plays piano sounds in music mode. With three different ways to play, this stroller is packed with fun! (MSRP US$44.99)
- Baby Amaze™ Learn to Talk & Read Baby Doll™: Children can talk to their baby doll to hear her repeat what is said, or read from one of the three included vocabulary books, which features more than 70 words. The more children speak, the more the doll will learn and repeat! The baby doll also encourages nurturing role play by asking for her pacifier, bottle and more. (MSRP US$29.99)
- Baby Amaze™ Peek & Learn Doll™: Cover the baby doll’s eyes with its hands to play the classic peek-a-boo game, generating adorable reactions and interactive play. Press the four interactive buttons on the baby doll and children will learn body parts, counting and nurturing concepts for role-play fun. Additionally, the baby doll plays a variety of familiar melodies on a timer for up to 15 minutes. (MSRP US$21.99)
