MobiGo
The intuitive, QWERTY keyboard is designed for a child's hands.
On-the-Go Learning Made Simple
The MobiGo Touch Learning System has a look and feel similar to a modern handheld device, but it's designed for use by young children with smaller, less dexterous hands. It features a sliding screen that can easily be pushed up to reveal a QWERTY keyboard underneath. The soft, over-molded plastic housing creates an easy-to-grip surface for holding the device with two hands, and the rubber feet on the bottom of the device help to hold it still on a smooth tabletop surface.

New games may be downloaded by connecting the MobiGo device to a computer using the provided USB cable and installing the VTech download manager. New game cartridges that feature a variety of popular characters and themes are available and sold separately, each with their own focus and learning curriculum.

MobiGo witha a girl A Learning Device That Grows with Your Child
The MobiGo Touch Learning System is a next-generation learning device that uses the popularity of modern handheld electronic devices to build skills in young children. It encourages the development of important dexterity-based skills by shifting between touch-based games and keyboard-based games, and it promotes the development of skills related to problem solving, spelling and grammar, observation, and mathematics.

The ability for parents to select a wide variety of games based on skill levels and themes makes MobiGo a versatile learning device that will maintain relevancy as a child grows. The MobiGo keeps track of user activity and saves this information under a personalized user profile that a child can set up the first time she uses the device. Although other users can play with the device, only one user profile can be saved at a time. This user can log onto the VTech Web site to download performance information, compare progress with other MobiGo profiles, and earn rewards for a job well done.

It is a great educational toy.

They both love them...they get to play them in the van, when we are waiting somewhere, and are always bringing them in the house to play after a trip!

I bought my son the Fisher-Price iXL for his 4th birthday. See my review on that one, but the long story short, after 3 weeks of waiting for it to be useable, I took it back. I liked the Leapster Explorer, but will not tolerate the excessive advertising and consumerism pet game. Wasn't crazy about their software choices for the 3-4 year old crowd either. Demoed all of them and had my son try them as well. He liked the Mobigo immediately... The graphics are nice, the goal setting in games looks fun. He can handle it fine for most games on easy. He loves it, and he has reached for it more in two days than the iXL that he had for three weeks.

Yeah, it's educational enough. I don't expect some handheld toy to replace his mom or me reading and talking to him, so I stopped stressing if the v-tech "curriculum" was as good as the Leapfrog's. It seems plenty educational, and more fun. It is a toy, after all.

Screen doesn't have a cover (like the iXL), and takes carts, but was much cheaper than the other two systems as well. I also don't think the iXL software would engage anyone over 5. The Explorer would have been a nice choice, but the Leaplets sound like a money pit, and by the time he would age into enough of their software, there would be something else around by then. He can have an ipod shuffle of something for his mp3's, so I won't miss that aspect of the Fisher-Price (on which I still wouldn't be able to put mp3's right now even if I didn't return it.)

Drawbacks - the QWERTY keyboard is hard for him to slide out sometimes. The screen has no cover without the case. With no stylus, he won't get writing practice, but we have plenty of paper and pencils in our house. While I think a physical keyboard is nice, it's probably no more or less cutting edge as a stylus for introducing kids to electronics.

This one is priced right, and has been a great purchase for us.

I bought two Mobigos, one for my 3 year old son and one for my 5 year old son. The included cartridge contains 6 generic games, each of which has an easy level and a difficult level. I like the color touch screen, it is much easier for my kids to use than the attached stylus on their original Leapsters. The Mobigo has a slide out Qwerty keyboard that allows the kids to type their name the first time they start it up, and is used in playing some of the educational games. This really feels like a sophisticated modern device, and teaches them basic technology skills that they will later apply to other things. The graphics are fun, colorful, and cartoonish.

These games are a big success! So far we're still playing with the original cartridges, I did buy two additional cartridges but they have not felt the need to try them yet. The games are fun and holding their attention for hours. My 3 1/2 year old needs help sliding the keyboard out, and sometimes asks for help with the game, but is having fun and not frustrated. My 5 year old who just finished Kindergarten is equally fascinated with the game, although he is easily able to do everything himself and was even able to put in the 4 AA batteries (not included) and replace the battery covers. You can turn off the background music if it gets annoying. My 5 year old is helping his brother when he gets stuck, which is nice since we are still actively working on sharing and taking turns every day! I like that the Mobigo is portable and they each have their own. The Mobigo comes with a USB cable to download games from the Vtech site(not yet available) and their are jacks for an AC adaptor and headphones (not included). I do wish there were more game selections and that the device was rechargeable; I should buy rechargeable batteries. I'm not sure how educational it will turn out to be, but I love that they will become better acquainted with a touch screen and a Qwerty keyboard.

So we download my daughters favorite game, drive off to grandmas and my daughter plays her favorite puppy game we downloaded. On the way she turns off the MobiGo, takes a nap, and when she wakes up grabs her MobiGo to play her favorite game again. Except, the game is now gone. We then must pullover at whatever neighborhood off-ramp we are at, pull out the laptop, find a wi-fi connection, and download her favorite puppy game to the MobiGo again, hoping she does not turn it off again until we are at grandmas.

We recently purchased the MobiGo for our 3-year old daughter. She loves it and would never notice the few things I did: 1) The advertised Vtech progress tracker - a significant factor in our choice over other products - does not exist yet, only a web page with a user interface example of what it might be like. 2) the down-loadable games from the website, are unfortunately lost each time the device is turned off - indicating flash memory rather than a memory card. And 3) the internal memory is only 30MB or so, a bit low in today's world, and allows only three games stored internally.

Suggested solutions: 1) finish the "progress tracker" coding and validation - or copyright/patent negotiation, 2 & 3) Add a memory card slot, to supplement the base memory. Last, this product appears it could play movies and store all games internally, dispensing with the Atari 2600ish era game card format.

Overall, a good product that deserves better than 3 stars but just cannot be given them.
