Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A great introduction to using a computer and mouse. This durable VTECH Tote and Go Laptop will provide your child with hours of educational fun. Learn numbers, shapes, words, letters and more through games and reading activities. The simple LCD screen and voice instructions will talk your youngster through the steps, what to press on the color coded mouse and how to get from one activity to the next. The keyboard is set up alphabetically rather than like a normal keyboard, so you will not be able to teach the child the correct finger placement for typing, however, this isn't crucial for a first laptop toy. The age range of 3-6 is quite accurate, but if you have an extra bright 6 year old they might find the 20 learning activities less than challenging. My 4 year old niece loves it and will continue to learn from each activity, especially since she is new to the English language and the pictures and words along with pronunciation are a great help. There is a USB cable included in the package so you may connect to the WEB to download additional activities like stories and e-cards straight from the VTECH web site. The auto shut-off feature will preserve your battery life (3 "AA" batteries) and the mouse stores neatly in the top of the unit. There is a volume control with two settings and a convenient carry handle for ease of portability. Great toy, very well made, and an affordable price tag. Product is made in China but has an 800# for customer questions.
