Includes everything you need to get started with healthy, educational fun.

Included "Action Mania" Smartridge features six types of games . View larger.
Easy to Setup and Control
Getting ready for your child's first game is easy. Simply insert the included AA batteries into the game console and the included AAA batteries into the controller. Then connect the console to your TV using the include A/V cable, slide a Smartridge cartridge into the game slot, and you're ready to go.

For each game, there are two control options. Kids can pick to use the joystick as a directional controller, or they can pick to use the motion of the controller itself. This means that tipping the controller left, right, forward, or backward inspires a corresponding motion on screen, letting kids get up and move around instead of staying stationary in front of the TV.

This is extra fun when your on-screen character is doing something fast-paced, like racing down a bobsled course. On the flip side, games that require more nuanced controls are often easier to navigate using the joystick. There's even a switch that lets you decide which way is "up," so the controller can be customized to accommodate right and left handed players.

Lots of Ways to Play Educational Games
It's easy to see why this system won the National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval and the Creative Child Seal of Excellence. A variety of age-appropriate games teach concepts like numbers, letters, and shapes for younger children and let older children work on skills like counting, vocabulary, and matching.

These games feature popular characters like Dora the Explorer, Spiderman, Kung Fu Panda, and Scooby Doo, and they include features that range from races to puzzles to sing-alongs. When kids want to play with a friend or a sibling, there's a two-player mode. And a switch on the bottom of the controller lets you ensure that signals aren't being crossed if the second player comes with his or her own controller.

The included "Action Mania" Smartridge means that your child will have six distinct types of games to choose from right away. One option is to engage in a bobsled race where passing through gates requires answering questions related to counting or more advanced topics like understanding greater than and less than. Another option involves using the controller to balance on a ball and select healthy foods, like pineapple, and avoid "unhealthy" snacks, like sweets. The third game is situated on a tennis court and does an especially good job promoting the development of hand eye coordination.

Club VTech lets parents and kids connect online and participate in a family-centered learning community. The included USB V-link device makes it easy to move data from your home computer to your Active Learning System. Web connect features allow for bonus gameplay downloads that keep kids excited about this learning system, and parents have access to educational advice and special promotional offers.

Overall, the whole Vtech experience is designed to promote interaction and healthy lifestyle choices while making learning fun. Our one minor complaint is the fact that the console uses battery power instead of having a wall adapter, which would eliminate the disappointment of batteries dying in the middle of a game. But if you don't have a convenient outlet, or you want to use the same console on several different TVs, this feature can actually be a bonus.

What's in the Box
Console, controller, wrist strap, 4 AA batteries, 3 AAA batteries, Smartridge, V-link, and user's manual.

It's is a great system for little kids and very affordable.
big a's mom
She had quite a hard time trying to figure out how to work this and became really frustrated.
Kindle Customer
Since the wii and its games cost more, this is good for an educational alternative for kids.

This is a great educational game system for young children who like to learn with characters they recognize and like, and is affordable.

The library is not limited to the games for the V-Motion, either. The V-Motion is fully backwards compatible with the V.Smile console games, but is designed to take advantage of wireless motion sensing controllers similar to (but not as advanced as) the Nintendo Wii. It has its own software lineup and the games are intended to get a child up and moving along with the game. For instance, when a child jumps, the controller will detect the movement and the character on-screen can also jump, or move sideways, based on the way the child moves his or her controller. This is limited to games with the "V-Motion" label.

There is a wired port on the V-Motion so you can use a wired controller or one of the several wired accessories for the V.Smile like the Smart Keyboard, Art Studio or SmartBook. There is no motion sensing portable version of the V-Motion, but there is a stylus and touch-pad enhanced new version of the V.Smile Pocket called the Cyber Pocket.

It is important to note that while the V-Motion has games designed specifically for the motion-sensing controllers, the V-Motion games can also be played on the Cyber Pocket, V.Smile or V.Smile Pocket if you also have one of those systems. Of course, if you happen to play a V-Motion game on a V.Smile, don't expect to be able to use the motion sensing aspect of those games.

Also, if you own a specific game with a movie character in it for the V-Motion, I would not expect it to differ much aside from the motion sensing parts of the game (which would be disabled on a V.Smile - similar to how microphone and touch pad elements in newer games are disabled on old first gen V.

First, I must say, I was very apprehensive about buying this console after reading reviews from other sites. I got one at a great bargain price and I couldn't pass it up. I kept my fingers crossed hoping I wouldn't be one of the unfortunates. Thankfully, I wasn't. We've had it for about 2 months now and she's just getting the hang of it (she's 3). She does get a little frustrated when the car goes the wrong way (most kids are at that age anyway). I only have the game it came with and she loves the racing part. It amazes me to hear her calling out the letters that she needs to find to complete the word. I'll be getting her more games in the future. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and most important, my daughter loves it. Great console and educational content.

My three year old daughter loves her new v-motion. She runs to it first thing whenever we first get home or when she gets up in the morning.
The graphics work better on the traditional screen rather than wide screen. i switched and now it looks much better. it still doesn't match up to your normal gaming systems, but then again you don't pay as much for them either.
It's is a great system for little kids and very affordable.

Vtech-

I have twin 3 year olds. This Christmas I asked their Grandparents to buy them the Vmotion Vsmile game systems. Of course we have to have two because that is the way it is with twins to keep harmony in the house. I have spent more time monkeying with the batteries for these units that my kids have been able to play with them. I have already swapped what I though was the "lemon" out for a different one. Ends up all three were lemons! Tonight, instead of quiet fun family time, my girls sat around watching me swap out new batteries for new batteries on a new machine. They were looking at me like I was an idiot, saying, "Mommy, those batteries no work either?". I've read online that this has happened to others and now I just feel ripped off! I can't even just take these back to the store, because we've purchased 3 games to go with them. To replace them just makes me feel more stupid because they will just quit working again only for me to have to keep taking them back to the store and (hopefully) getting them replace (Every other day?). Come on!

Also, it makes Grandma and Grandpa feel bad because their super cool toys that were such a big hit are now just a big FLOP! Vtech, I want my money back, you can have your toys back that stay on when the off button is pushed and decide one day to just not turn on no matter how many batteries you throw at them.
+++++
I will try to paste their letter below. Pretty much they gave me a laundry list of things that I can try to do to make these things work. After all that one started working again for 5 minutes until it failed again. I can't spend all my time breathing air into these two brand new toys. I am now on hold with their "Customer Service" for 31 minutes and counting.
