VTech Expands Popular Switch & Go Line
Chicago – Today VTech announced exciting new additions to its popular, interactive Switch & Go® line, which introduces children to the world of prehistoric creatures that transform into vehicles. Offering hours of endless entertainment, the Switch & Go Dragon Roadhog, Gorilla Muscle Car and Velociraptor Motorcycle will be available later this year.
"Switch & Go continues to be a kid favorite, and the new toys introduce even more exciting innovation and technology," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "The new one-touch transformation, action buttons and unique creatures amplify imaginative play."
Kid-tough and kid-friendly, the Dragon Roadhog easily transforms from a rowdy vehicle to a ferocious dragon with a single touch. With the Gorilla Muscle Car, kids can turn a great ape into a mighty muscle car, while dinosaur fans will love the Velociraptor Motorcycle with one-touch transformation. These Switch & Go toys feature LCD screens that display either a driver's friendly face or fierce creature eyes, with awesome sound effects correlating to the mode the toy is in and an action button for even more imaginative play.
