VTech Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe Receives a Parents’ Choice Award
Chicago – Today VTech announced its Touch & Learn Activity Desk™ Deluxe is a winner of a Parents' Choice Approved Award. The product went through the rigors of a lengthy, multi-level evaluation process by the independent nonprofit Parents' Choice Awards® program, trusted by consumers, educators and retailers for more than 38 years.
"We're honored to receive this award from the Parents' Choice Foundation and excited that our Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe continues to receive accolades as we head into the holiday season," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "We've combined the engaging activities children love with a unique expandability feature that parents appreciate to offer an exciting, interactive toy with lasting play value."
The Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe is a three-in-one desk with interactive activity cards that is expandable for more fun and discovery. The desk features an interactive desktop and five pages to explore that are filled with engaging content including letters, numbers, music, colors and more. Choose from eight expansion packs (each sold separately) that each focus on a specific curriculum like reading skills, animals and numbers. It also transforms from a desk into an easel and chalkboard with plenty of storage space for art supplies to encourage play and discovery. The LED display illustrates letter and number stroke order and how to draw basic shapes. For even more fun, toddlers can play with the toy telephone or listen to fun tunes on the music player.
"As a Parents' Choice Award winner, it's an honor that doesn't come easily and VTech is a member of a very select group," said Claire Green, President, Parents' Choice Foundation. "Our judging panel of parents, kids and educators really enjoyed playing with all the features of the interactive Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe, right down to the thoughtful auto shut off feature for kids and parents who forget."
The Touch & Learn Activity Desk Deluxe is designed for ages 2 - 5 years and retails for US$54.99. Additional information can be found at www.vtechkids.com/activitydesk.
