Vtech Tech Toys: MobiGo Touchscreen Review & Giveaway

Win it! We just had a chance to review a pre-launch tech toy from Vtech called the MobiGo. It will be available on July 15th, 2010 and it really is a leap in technology for the preschool set. Geared for kids 3- 8 yrs old. Pricepoint – $59.99 and cartridges will be available for $19.99.

Parents and kids will be impressed by the technology. The screen clarity is incredible and honestly it looks like I’m watching TV in HD when I see my 4 year old cruise around on this handheld device.

There is no pen or stylus as it is entirely a touch screen for the games along with a full QWERTY keyboard below the screen for the games that enable you to type letters or numbers to answer questions. Many fun games are included with the product to keep your child busy and of course you can buy new games for $19.99 which is nice price and about $5 less than Leapfrog’s games for their handheld devices. Here we are taking a spin with the Β new MobiGo. Enjoy! Β Enter to win a MobiGo by leaving a comment below by June 21st, 2010. US Residents only. Prizing will ship once product is available for sale.

  1. My son would love this! He has Asperger’s and is really into his Leapster, but unfortunately it got broken (after being used for many years). He is obviously upset over it, we haven’t been able to replace it for him quite yet… This would be the PERFECT replacement! Looks AMAZING! Looks more “Grown Up” πŸ™‚

  2. VTech is awesome..I love all there toys!! My boys loved all there toys but now I have a little girl that could use some toys now!

  3. My 3 boys would be in heaven with this toy. They loves my laptop and can’t get enough of their older brother DS.

  4. This would be excellent for our long car trips when we pick my stepson up in Mississippi and I would love to strengthen his reading skills too!

  5. Oh my littlest one would love this! She would feel like one of the big kids and learn at the same time. Developmentally she has been delayed but loves to do the things the big kids are doing! Vtech is an awesome product and we have several things from them already. My oldest 2 grew up on vtech products so I hope the youngest can too! Thanks so much for this opportunity!

  24. In the past, we have bought many LeapFrog toys, but we are just now discovering the wonders of Vtech. The MobiGo would make an amazing gift for my younger nephew. I especially like the Qwerty keyboard, which will help teach small fingers the computer skills they will need later in life. Thank you for the great give-away.

  25. I love this new advance in children’s learning toys and if I don’t win this, this WILL be on my daughter’s birthday list..

  28. Some Good Points of the MobiGo

    * Adjustable backlight can make the screen brighter or darker.
    * Adjustable volume can keep the noise down.
    * Accepts headphones for silent play (however, see the downside of the headphones below in the bad points).
    * You can download games and prizes from the VTech website by connecting MobiGo to your computer.
    * Portable and nice setup with the pop-up screen.
    * Low price point (compared to other devices) at only $59.99.
    * Great hardware for a small price.

  29. I would like to win this for my 6 year old Granddaughter.I love Vtech. I use to buy Vtech learning toys for my children. Now I buy Vtech for my Grandchildren.

  30. This looks like a nice educational toy and I think my 4 year old granddaughter would love it. Thanks for having the contest!

  31. This would be awesome for my 3 year old. So i can have time for this lil one, or even to keep him occupied when were held up at the doctors office.

  32. I noticed that you did a review on BOTH the Vtech Mobigo and the Leapster Explorer….so which one do you REALLY think is better? I have only owned Vtech products such as Vsmile and Bugsby and their Kidizoom camera (had two lemons on that). I want the advice of someone who had both systems and has had the experiences that I have not had.

  33. I am searching for a great present for my son’s 5th b-day, and just happened to find out about this today. Looks pretty neat. I especially love the qwerty key pad. So, I guess I will take my chance to win one.

  34. I hope that my daughter likes this, as she loves to play with itouch apps. I hear that it’s a great learning toy that keeps the little ones engaged!
