A few days ago we received a package from ModernMom.com and VTech!! Does the novelty of getting a package delivered in the mail ever wear off? I don’t think so for us. It makes it a special day and I love how excited everyone gets! Especially the kids, it doesn’t matter what it is because it is a new box to explore, and what kid doesn’t love playing with new boxes?!
Here is a look at what was inside the new box, if the title didn’t already give it away 😉
MobiGo Touch Learning System
*Disclosure: I was sent the MobiGo Touch Learning System by VTech and ModernMom.com to review the product. What follows are my own honest opinions.
Even better for the kids, a box within a box! Hey, you got to make these things last as long as possible. Entertaining little ones for any length of time is no easy task!
A little disagreement over who exactly was going to open the inner package. Fortunately it was settled very quickly because they really wanted to get to the toy inside.
Daddy quickly took a look at the MobiGo to explain to Big Brother how it worked.
In a matter of seconds, which is about as long as a 4 ½ year old is capable of receiving instructions from Dad, the MobiGo was in Big Brother’s hands.
The great part is Big Brother mainly figured out how to use it all by himself! Therefore I would have to say it is very user friendly for kids. MobiGo uses touch controls similar to that of parent’s touch screen devices. It also has a QWERTY keyboard. What age do you think my kids are going to surpass me in technology skills?
There are games to help children with their alphabet, math, music and logic and more for older children like vocabulary, spelling, and categorization. MobiGo is launching an online store that hosts free games and other content for download. For this reason the MobiGo is meant to grow along side your kids as they further their learning. Also, if parents want they can hook the MobiGo up to their PC or Mac and receive status reports on their child’s progress.
For the first day I cut my son a break and basically let him play his heart out because it was new. After that first day it fortunately has not been an issue how long he plays it for. My husband and I are really excited to have this for traveling, and for restaurants. It is small and easy to bring along. I think it is going to be a HUGE help for those times!
I’m really excited for them to have this to play with instead of my phone! All I have to say is thank goodness I put a protective cover on my phone, but it is basically a gamble each time it enters their small hands.
I asked my son what he thought about the MobiGo and in his words “It’s great!” What more can you ask for really? Big Brother thoroughly enjoyed playing the MobiGo dressed up in his doctor Halloween costume from last year of course!
Little Sister completed the trial for me, and convinced me to rate it a thumbs up when she lifted it over her head and smashed it on the floor and it worked just perfectly afterwards. Not that I recommend doing that or anything because I can’t guarantee it will turn out so well, but just saying as a parent reviewing a product that was major plus!
If you looking for a birthday present, or dare I say it to get one holiday gift done and out of the way ahead of time, consider the MobiGo Touch Learning System.
