VTech’s Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway Earns Spot on TTPM Most Wanted Holiday Toys List
Chicago – Today VTech announced its Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Ultimate RC Speedway™ was named to the TTPM Most Wanted, an independently tested and curated list of the most in-demand toys and kids lifestyle products for the holidays. The honor marked the second consecutive year VTech's acclaimed Go! Go! Smart Adventures™ line was recognized by TTPM, the leading review site for toys, tots, pets, and more.
"We think kids are going to be blown away by the RC magic in the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway," said Chris Byrne, EVP and content director for TTPM, aka The Toy Guy®. "This enormous set features an innovative track layout and is packed with activities that will keep preschoolers engaged, playing and exploring for hours."
The 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 are honored to again be selected as one of TTPM's Most Wanted holiday toys among so many outstanding products," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Our Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway is our first playset to incorporate remote controlled action to truly put kids in the driver's seat and we're thrilled with the early response this holiday season."
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. For more information, visit www.vtechkids.com/gogosmartwheels.
