VTech Brings New Playsets and Vehicles Featuring Disney to the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Line
New York – Today VTech announces its award-winning Go! Go! Smart Wheels® line will feature Disney characters. For the first time, VTech will offer licensed Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets and vehicles, featuring classic Disney characters kids love, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy. The new line is on display at the 2018 North American International Toy Fair®.
"We are incredibly excited to launch our first licensed Go! Go! Smart Wheels featuring Disney," said William To, President of VTech Electronics North America. "We believe that the proven, successful play pattern of our Go! Go! Smart Wheels combined with the strength of the Disney brand will bring these characters to life in new ways and provide fun and exciting play experiences for children."
Go! Go! Smart Wheels spark toddlers' imaginations with engaging playsets that offer multi-sensory learning, helping children reach social, emotional, language, cognitive, physical and motor milestones. They feature innovative SmartPoint® technology that truly brings the toys to life. As a child places a SmartPoint vehicle on SmartPoint locations found throughout the playsets, it will respond and engage children with lights, sounds and music. Kids will love going on an adventure with Mickey Mouse on the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Mickey Magical Wonderland, which features a ride on a Ferris wheel for Mickey Mouse, fun ramp, car, boat and more. Little engineers will want to hop on board the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Mickey Choo-Choo Express, an exciting train station with lots of manipulative play features to build motor skills. When it's time for a sweet treat, little ones will want to stop into the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Minnie Ice Cream Parlor, which includes a shape sorter, elevator, ramp, turning gears and more. For even more fun, there will be a fire house, fun house and individual Go! Go! Smart Wheels vehicles available featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy.
