VTech’s First-Ever Licensed Go! Go! Smart Wheels Playsets and Vehicles Featuring Disney Available Now
Chicago – Today, VTech announced the availability of its first Disney licensed Go! Go! Smart Wheels® sets. Kids will be able to choose from their favorite Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy. Go! Go! Smart Wheels spark toddlers' imaginations with interactive playsets that offer multi-sensory learning and introduction to letters and numbers.
"Our successful Go! Go! Smart Wheels toys have been enjoyed by children for many years," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Adding a beloved brand like Disney will fuel further growth and excitement for the line. Our new playsets combined with these classic Disney characters, featuring their real voices, will bring smiles and delight to both parents and children alike."
Go! Go! Smart Wheels feature innovative SmartPoint® technology that truly brings the toys to life. As a child places a SmartPoint vehicle on one of the SmartPoint locations found throughout the playsets, it responds with lights, sounds and music. Kids can take Mickey Mouse for a ride on the Ferris wheel, drive down the ramp or go for a spin on the roundabout with the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Mickey Magical Wonderland. Little conductors will want to hop aboard the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Mickey Choo-Choo Express, an exciting train station with features designed to build motor skills. When it's time for a sweet treat, little ones will love to visit the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Minnie Ice Cream Parlor, which includes an Ice Cream Truck, shape sorter, elevator, turning gears and more. Other toys in the line include a fire station with silly slides, a fun house with multiple ramps and individual Go! Go! Smart Wheels vehicles featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy.
