I have an exciting product to share with you today. This is a sneak peak at vtech’s new MobiGo system that will be introduced in Toys R Us stores on Monday. MobiGo is a Mobile Gaming System that has not only the traditional gaming buttons, but also a full quarty keyboard and a touch screen. MobiGo is a small lightweight device that is designed to help kids learn and play all at the same time. You can also connect the MobiGo to the Internet to download extra surprises or upload your scores to receive awards. Here a closer look at my experience with the vtech MobiGo.
When the MobiGo first arrived my son was so excited to get it open and out of the box. I was a little worried because I was afraid the games would be too complicated to figure out (He’s 2 1/2 and the age range on the toy says 3-8) I knew he would be frustrated if it was too advanced for him. Much to my surprise it didn’t take long for him to start figuring it out. The MobiGo actually comes with one Touch & Learn Game Pack which has several games that were easy to use and educational at the same time.
We were leaving on vacation the day the MobiGo arrived so it made the perfect take along toy for the car. I loved that I could attach his MyPhones and I didn’t have to listen to the music for 2 hours while he was entertained playing games. Most of the games have more than one level so that makes it nice for younger children.
I loved that the touch screen was so easy to use and responsive. There is a game (Shown on the left) where you learn to trace the shapes. This is a great way to learn and have fun at the same time. It’s really just about the right learning level for my son. He knows his shapes but learning to drawthem is fun for him. Also, since he’s grown up in the world of iPhones and the iPod touch he is much happier with a Touch Screen than with the Keyboard. It is amazing to me that this age group prefers the touch screen to the keyboards so I was excited to see this feature added to a gaming system.
You can purchase additional games for the MobiGo which feature licensed characters like Dora the Explorer and Toy Story 3. These games have a suggested retail value of $19.99. I would say having to purchase additional games is the one downside to this (and really any) gaming system. The games can be expensive if you want to purchase more than one so that’s something you will want to make sure you take into consideration before making a purchase. I actually think Zach will be happy using the games that came with the system for a while. Not until he’s a few years older would I really think about adding other games.
