VTech Chomp & Count Dino (Ages 12-36 months, MSRP: $19.99)
- Your child will learn about colors, numbers, and food with the adorable new Chomp & Count Dino.
We have always been huge dinosaur fans in our house, since our oldest son loves them! Baby boy now roars like a dinosaur because being a dinosaur is all he knows. As you can imagine, this VTech Chomp & Count dinosaur has been a favorite of ours for this reason!! We love playing with it and sorting the colors and shapes out, talking about them and then focusing on his fine motor skills by inserting the food! The food/coins are pretty large so I never have to worry about it being a choking hazard for my little man!! This is a highly educational toy that also helps with motor skills. All around for the price, it is pretty awesome!
VTech Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser (Ages 6-36 months, MSRP: $39.99)
- This 2-in-1 toy grows with your children and transforms from a floor play toy with detachable steering wheel activity panel to an exciting toy.
Even though my little man is well past the age that he needs help standing and walking, we still have a ton of fun with this!! First off the steering wheel pops off, so that is a musical toy in and of itself. Little man has an absolute blast playing with that alone. Then he loves to ride on the car around the kitchen. He thinks it is great fun to try to catch us because he has a car and we are on foot! He loves that there is storage under the seat and often stores many of his treasures in there! There is also a key that allows my little man to turn it and it sounds like the car is starting.
VTech Grow-Along Music Center (Ages 12-36 months, MSRP: $29.99)
- Your children can pretend to be musicians and sing along to the music with the Grow-Along Music Center.
My little man loves to make music, and this toy is not exception for him. It does have different height adjustments and is a pretty sturdy toy with 3 legs! It would work well for children pulling themselves up to play with it, and it works well for my little mans age as well (21 months.) He has had a ton of fun playing music with it, but my one critism is it is a little short for the larger kids! Litttle man is in the 85th percentile and at not-quite two, this toy is a bit short for him! It could stand to go up another 6 inches for it to last until the recommended 36 months for him. As a Mom, I love that the music can be set from off, low to high for the days I am just not feeling my living room sounding like an orchestra, I can turn the volume down. Overall, it is very fun and even the big boy, who is 7 like to mess around with it a bit!
VTech Smart Shots Sports Center (Ages 12-36 months, MSRP: $39.99)
- You can cheer on your little sports stars with the Smart Shots Sports Center. This electronic sports center features a soccer goal and basketball hoop for a fun 2-in-1 experience.
At 21 months my son is the perfect age fro this toy! He gets the concept of putting the call in the hoop, and loves all of the sounds and lights! This has been one toy that keeps him entertained for a long time, putting the balls through the hoops and chasing after them around the living room. Control and manipulation of the ball helps with his fine and gross motor skills and we are able to talk about the colors as we play! There are over 50 songs and melodies so there are always different sounds made.
What I love most about Vtech is all their toys promote education and motor skills that toddlers need to develop into preschoolers! Every one of these toys are no different, and any one would make a perfect Christmas gift for a 12-24 month old (in my opinion.)
