Being a mom to two young boys (2.5 and 5 years old) hasn’t been easy. They are in a constant state of energy, always wanting to run around and play with a continuous need to be stimulated.
It’s always a challenge to keep them entertained, especially during those rainy days indoors. This led me to search for new toys that stimulate their senses and most importantly, keep them busy!
That is when I turned to VTech Toys to keep them engaged and having fun. I want to share my personal experience with a variety of VTech car toys and how they have helped me keep my sons (and daughter, too) entertained for hours!
Not only are the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets fun for kids and a great holiday gift idea, but they also provide a variety of benefits for their development. Little ones are always learning through play, and VTech toys provide educational opportunities as they entertain themselves.
As a parent, I want my kids to have fun while also learning something new.
These toys come equipped with buttons, lights, music, and interactive features that make learning fun. My boys love pressing the buttons to hear the different sounds and watch the cars light up.
Navigating through the courses, racing down the tracks, and figuring out how to make things work engages both their problem-solving and fine motor skills.
Another great feature of these VTech playsets is how easy they are to use. The buttons and features are simple enough for young children to figure out on their own.
As a busy mom, I appreciate not having to spend hours assembling complicated toys and also having to play with the toys alongside them. My 2-year-old picked up how to play with all these toys by himself very quickly and really enjoys the independent play!
My Favorite VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Toys
The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Spiral Construction Tower is an engaging toy with a spiral tower and construction site. My 2-year-old loved spinning down, cruising through, and exploring the different interactive SmartPoint areas.
He loved hanging the bundles of steel on the swinging crane hook, lowering the drawbridge, using the elevator, and watching the dump truck spin down the track.
He had a blast with his cars on this track and I really noticed him talking and using his imagination alongside this track set.
With a talking fire truck, sturdy track set, and SmartPoint technology, The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Rescue Tower Firehouse is another awesome option for young boys. Even my 5-year-old wanted in on the fun when watching his little brother play.
It helps that my son always says that he wants to be a firefighter when he grows up, so I knew how much he’d love this toy. Both kids explored the fire station and raced the fire truck down the ramp and through the fire station doors. It was so cute watching their faces when the fire truck sprung into action at the first sound of an imaginary emergency!
The SmartPoint areas play sounds, music, and phrases about feelings and being a firefighter. Your kids will definitely stay engaged and have fun with this fire house and all of its features!
The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels 4-in-1 Zig-Zag Raceway is an exciting track set with zooming ramps, battle bumpers, and talking stunt cars.
My son loved racing his brother for first place and performing cool tricks on the Zig-Zag Track, Battle Raceway, Stunt Raceway, and Super Ramp. Although I had to play referee with whose car actually zoomed the fastest and crossed the finish line first, it was fun for all of us!
I’m always looking for toys that both of my kids can play with together and a bit of competition never hurt anybody! So this was a great choice.
The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Roadway Heroes 3-Pack is an exciting toy vehicle set. With the SmartPoint Revved-Up Race Car, Helpful Police Car, and Tow Truck, kids can explore first words, emotions, and the importance of helping others.
Pressing the windshields triggers sounds, songs, and phrases. Kids can also activate sound effects by closing the hoods or moving the Tow Truck's hook. My son loved revving up the engine and watching these vehicles soar across the floor.
These are great toys that kids can take anywhere and play with - the car, restaurants, traveling, you name it!
The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels have been a game-changer for me and my two boys. They provide endless hours of fun and learning and are durable enough to withstand all the wear and tear that comes with having two active boys.
I highly recommend these toys to any parent looking for an affordable, educational, and fun way to keep their children entertained. Whether it's during rainy days indoors or simply for everyday play, VTech toys are a great investment for your child's entertainment and development!
