If your little one is too young for a Nintendo DS, VTech has come to the rescue, just in time for the holidays. Their new VTech MobiGo handheld gaming system is designed for kids ages 3-7 and based on the reviews of parents who already own it, it’s definitely going to be a top 2010 Christmas toy.
In some ways, I think the MobiGo is even better than a DS. It’s touchscreen–so you never have to worry about a lost stylus–but there’s also the option to use the slide-out keyboard. I also love that it feels durable, which is perfect for younger kids who are more prone to drop things.
On the games front, I’m really impressed with the selection of learning games that actually helps kids develop skills rather than just vegging out with a video game. Best of all, your child will be engaged and entertained because there are a ton of games that feature characters they already know and love–Dora the Explorer, Shrek and the Toy Story crew.
And for all you budgeting moms (myself included), $50 really is not bad for a tech toy, especially one as well-designed as this one. So we say go for it–before they’re all gone!
