Vtech V.Smile V-Motion TV Learning System
We give the Vtech V.Smile V-Motion TV Learning System a HUGE five stars! Vtech recently sent us a system to try out and review and my 3.5 year old absolutely LOVES it! We used the game which came with the system to test it and he loved the racing and dexterity games.
Some of the great features are: The system can be run by either batteries or an A/C adaptor (not included) which means it can be used in the car if you're lucky enough to have TV screens. The controller can be switched so if your child is right handed or left handed they can use it with ease. The controller is ingenius as you can either use the joystick or thumb pad, OR shake the controller to make actions happen. It's up to your child and their level of ability. It's truly a plug and play system and took about two minutes to hook up and have it running.
The only thing I can think of to criticize is that it doesn't come with an A/C adaptor, but these can be purchased very inexpensively at most electronics stores.
Within the first few minutes, my son was getting the hang of it and doing things on his own. It teaches you letters, numbers and helps with dexterity and hand-eye coordination as well. While we sat with him the first few times he played the games, he was soon choosing his own games and navigating through the options without our assistance. It's amazing how easy it is to use! We still sit with him, but now it's just to cheer him on and give him the reassurance and reinforcement he loves to hear!
This is a great idea for a Christmas gift! We've actually now purchased several new games for him as presents and can't wait to see how he does. The games themselves are smart too, utilizing characters kids are familiar with such as Thomas the Tank Engine, Dora the Explorer, The Wonder Pets and many more. Our son and my husband and I all give this a hearty FIVE STAR rating and highly recommend the product!
