New Go! Go! Smart Wheels Toys from VTech arrive for Fall...

Written by

VTech's Go! Go! Smart Wheels have been something that my wife and I have regularly given as gifts over the past few years - some really cool vehicles and playsets that weren't quite on the scene yet when our girls were toddlers, but ones that arrived just in time for some other kids we know. Now the line is expanding again, with new sets like the Launch & Chase Police Tower, Tow & Go Garage and the Take Flight Airport. These sets can spark toddlers' imaginations and offer engaging play experiences while teaching first words, letters and more, and each features innovative SmartPoint technology. One of my favorite features is that they can all hook together for a large and immersive play environment. Check out the new sets below!

"Kids love our Go! Go! Smart Wheels line because it's fun; parents love that it's smart and engaging. With this new collection there's even more to love, with exciting themes that will take kids on thrilling new adventures," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "From a police tower that allows kids to chase a getaway car, to a multi-level, interactive garage, to an airport with a plane that 'takes off,' there are engaging play experiences for every child."

Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets inspire endless imagination while delivering important developmental benefits that help children reach social, emotional, language, cognitive, physical and motor skill milestones. As a child places a SmartPoint vehicle on SmartPoint locations found throughout the playsets, it will respond and engage children with lights, sounds and music. 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 the three level rampway, while exploring SmartPoint locations throughout. There is also a new Go! Go! Smart Wheels Tow & Go Garage™, with nine interactive SmartPoint locations, 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 to the cloud.

Then, race down the ramp and through the car wash to finish up with a nice shine! Trent the Tow Truck features a moveable hook to tow other Go! Go!
