VTech MobiGo (review/giveaway)


My kids love technology, actually as I write this Jeffery is playing on his Daddy's computer. Jeffery has quite a few technology toys, a lot of them from VTech such as the VSmile, VSmile pocket, and the VTech Tote 'n Go Laptop (actually each of the big kids have one of these) I was actually surprised when I started thinking back to all of their toys, from when they were babies, to now, that were/are VTech brand. So I didn't even thing twice when contacted about reviewing the new MobiGo.






Jeffery was thrilled to have a new game to play when I showed him the MobiGo, and Jaylin wanted to fight him over it! So Jeffery got 15minutes first then Jaylin's turn...Jeffery wasn't as interested in it as Jaylin, once his 15minutes were up, he was done. Jaylin on the other hand, she hasn't put it down since she got her hands on it! I think once we get more games for it (ie Cars lol) Jeffery will want to play it more. Check out my cutie Jaylin playing the "squirrel" game tonight on my bed.




The "squirrel" game is where you use your finger to trace the lines to make things like bridges, vines, elevators, wheels and such...yes I said use your finger...it's a TOUCH SCREEN!!! AWESOME! Check this one out too...


Yep, that's a slide out QWERTY keyboard! Jaylin is learning her letters by "shooting ducks" you have to push the key for the duck going across the screen...in the difficult level you have to spell words. That's one thing I love about VTech is the educational stuff they come out with and the MobiGo is no different! There is counting, letters, tracing, find the difference, and music too! I honestly thought this game was going to be too difficult for Jaylin (it's recomended for ages 3-7 but she's a little delayed), but she caught on quickly....still asks for help now and then...but for the most part she sits quietly on the couch or bed and plays her game.


The MobiGo will be available at Toys R Us stores and online June 7th  selling for $59.99 and sold nationwide in August. Here are some of the details of the MobiGo:


  • Touch-screen: Applying touch control that includes tap, flick, pat and drag & drop, kids learn with fun on the same technology as parents do with their touch-screen devices.
  • Educational games: From coloring, drawing and playing instruments, kids can discover a wide variety of fun and engaging learning games. MobiGo teaches a wide range of skills including math, vocabulary, spelling, logic and categorization. The slide open QWERTY keyboard introduces older kids to text typing skills.
  • Downloadable Content: Additional games and content will be available for download so kids can customize their MobiGo with the latest innovative games and continue the learning and fun for years to come.
  • Portable: Handheld robust gaming console makes learning fun on the go for little hands and is equipped with headphone and AC adapter jacks


Here are a list of the games available, 1 basic game comes with the console itself...that's what Jaylin has been playing for 2 days straight! (more game to come):


  • Ben 10
  • Disney/Pixar’s Cars
  • Disney Fairies
  • Disney Princesses
  • Dora the Explorer
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
  • Mr. Men & Little Miss
  • NASCAR
  • Shrek
  • Super Hero Squad
  • Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3
Games retail for $19.99, and you know Jaylin is going to want the Fairies and Princesses, and of course Jeffery will want the Cars...we may end up purchasing a 2nd MobiGo so they can both have one and not fight over it.
