Go! Go! Smart Animals™ Combine Traditional Play with Modern Technology

NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VTech® (www.vtechkids.com), a world leader in age-appropriate and developmental stage-based electronic learning products for children, is expanding its best-selling and acclaimed Go! Go! Smart Wheels® product range with an assortment of 14 new playsets and vehicles, plus a storage case. The product line is also "going wild" with an entirely new extension - Go! Go! Smart Animals™. Both product lines are on display at the 2014 American International Toy Fair.

"The response to Go! Go! Smart Wheels exceeded our expectations, and we're thrilled to expand the brand," said William To, President of VTech Electronics North America. "The new range of products allows VTech to reach an even broader audience and furthers our commitment to developing innovative products that make cause-and-effect learning fun for kids. As always, everything we do ladders back to our legacy in learning."

The successful launch of Go! Go! Smart Wheels led to five industry awards in 2013 and paved the way to expand the sought-after line. Go! Go! Smart Wheels – and now Go! Go! Smart Animals – capture the best of both worlds: traditional role-play infused with modern technology, for an engaging, multi-sensory learning experience. Each playset features SmartPoint™ locations that can be recognized by every SmartPoint vehicle and animal in the lines. As a vehicle or animal is rolled over a playset's various SmartPoints, it will flash and play greetings, fun sounds, short tunes and sing-along songs.
