Introduce your child to the possibilities of computer play with the portable Vtech Tote and Go Laptop. This toy engages your child with 20 educational activities, appropriate for ages 3 to 6, and even includes more advanced functions, like a pretend social network, an e-card feature, a music-playlist option, and a story-time activity. The Tote and Go helps to teach your child letters, numbers, as well as logic and reasoning skills, and additional content is available by connecting it to your PC or Mac.
Portable Laptop Designed for Kids
This child-sized laptop boasts a full keyboard with easy-to-read buttons for numbers and quick buttons to bring kids to various games and activities. Every time your child presses a button, the laptop will repeat the button's function, encouraging learning. A volume button offers three levels of sound, although the sounds and background music cannot be turned off. The on/off button preserves battery life, and the side port for the included mini-USB cord features a spring-closed cover.
The laptop's mouse clicks into and moves on a provided platform, so your child can use the laptop on uneven surfaces. Parents will appreciate that the mouse snaps onto the top of the laptop for easy storage and portability. A convenient carry handle lets your child take the laptop along on playdates or road trips.
Educational Games Spur Young Minds
The Tote and Go Laptop's games are separated into categories based on knowledge area, including letters and words, numbers and shapes, and logic and games. Each section features several games uniquely designed to encourage your child's mind and prepare your little one for school. The report card button allows you and your child to review progress for each of the games.
The laptop's games teach skills such as differentiating between capital letters and letter sounds, identifying shapes, comparing amounts, and counting, all with the help of cute animal friends.
Social and Music Capabilities for Creative Play
Kids can investigate the world of social networking with the Net Pals activity, which allows kids to interact with animal friends. Kids can send postcards, visit or play with animal friends, or give gifts to their buddies. Apart from the social network, your child will be able to curate his or her very own fish tank.
With the Music Party feature, the laptop allows your child to select and listen to songs from a playlist. While the music is playing, your young one can interact with instrument-playing animals, press different numbers to change songs, or touch numbers on the keyboard to add in some funny sounds.
Connects to Computer for Additional Content
Parents can connect the laptop to a PC or Mac with the included USB cord to access even more games and activities. Once you have downloaded and installed the Learning Lodge Software, you and your child will be able to watch and listen to short stories downloaded from the internet, send and receive e-cards from friends and family, and download new vocabulary words for the picture dictionary. With the Learning Lodge Software, this laptop can continue to provide hours of fun as your child grows.
The Tote and Go Laptop comes with a one-year limited warranty.
