VTech Announces Expanded Availability of Popular Go! Go! Cory Carson Toys
Chicago – Today VTech announced the launch of new products in its successful Go! Go! Cory Carson® toy line, now available nationwide. Based on the Netflix animated preschool series and inspired by VTech's award-winning Go! Go! Smart Wheels® line, Go! Go! Cory Carson follows the adventures of kid car Cory Carson, his family and his friends in Bumperton Hills as they navigate the winding roads of childhood.
"Parents and kids are loving the new series and we are thrilled to help them create their own Go! Go! Cory Carson adventures with this toy line," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Kids can play with their new favorite characters and explore places from the show in real life!"
The award-winning Go! Go! Cory Carson toy line (2 years and up) lets kids create their own adventures with Cory and his friends, with vehicles based on the show's characters, and playsets inspired by popular locations from the show. Kids can train for a rescue mission at Freddie's Firehouse™ or dance with DJ Train Trax & the Roll Train™, both recipients of accolades from the Toy Insider, Mom's Choice Awards, National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) and PAL Awards (Play Advances Language). The products offer the engaging play experiences Go! Go! Smart Wheels toys are known for, using technology that brings vehicles to life with fun sounds, phrases, songs and multi-sensory learning to maximize fun. Playtime is made even more exciting by encouraging pretend play tied to the Go! Go! Cory Carson show. The toy line is available now, nationwide and online.
Seasons one and two of Go! Go! Cory Carson are streaming now on Netflix. With demand for Cory Carson soaring, a new special titled "Go! Go! Cory Carson Summer Camp" was just released and is now available on Netflix. In the episode, Cory spends the summer at Camp Friendship with his best friend, Freddie, but jealousy flares when Freddie brings his cousin Rosie along for the ride. A trailer is available at bit.ly/GGCCSummerCampYT.
This fall, new toys will continue to bring the adventures of Cory and his friends to life. Kids can explore Cory's Stay & Play Home™, a house built just for cars, or knock down walls at the O'Tool's Construction Site™. Both Go! Go! Cory Carson playsets come with mini characters that respond to PlayZone™ locations with unique phrases, sing-along songs and fun sounds. They will be available at major retailers this fall.
