For fun on-the-go, the Farm Fun Storybook™, On-the-Go Baby Driver™ and Play & Move Puppy Tunes™ keep babies actively engaged. VTech is also introducing Pop & Score Soccer™, an action-packed toy that allows for two players so parents can engage with their child. Plus, the best-selling Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker™, an interactive transitional toy that grows with a child from crawler to walker, is getting a fresh new look while continuing to offer stimulating activities.
Go! Go! Smart Wheels®
Proprietary SmartPoint® technology brings Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets and vehicles to life, sparking toddlers' imaginations by providing multi-sensory learning. The exciting, interactive Go! Go! Smart Wheels Launch & Chase Police Tower™ will have kids racing, chasing and patrolling the city with this engaging playset. They can pretend to serve and protect as they patrol with Po the SmartPoint Police Car and chase the Getaway Car around three track levels, while exploring SmartPoint locations throughout. There is also a new Go! Go! Smart Wheels Tow & Go Garage™ with nine interactive SmartPoint locations that is sure to get little gearheads revved up. If they'd rather take to the skies, the new Go! Go! Smart Wheels Take Flight Airport™ will have them soaring as they launch the SmartPoint airplane on the catapult up to the cloud.
Building on the continued success of its Kidi line of electronics, VTech will introduce an exciting new karaoke machine, fun microphone and hi-tech journal. Kids can sing along to their favorite songs with the new Kidi Star Karaoke Machine™ and Kidi Star Music Magic Microphone™. Featuring the innovative Music Magic feature that reduces or removes the vocal track of songs, the products work with existing music collections such as MP3 files, streaming music services and YouTube karaoke videos, so no additional purchase is required. They also come packed with engaging content and play value including games, sound effects and voice effects for fun musical expression. VTech is also introducing the Kidi Secrets Selfie Journal™. Much more than a diary, techie kids will love the extensive features, including facial recognition that only unlocks the journal when it recognizes the user's face, front and back cameras, photo and video filters, games and more.
