I was VERY excited when I was asked to try these new Switch & Go Dinos from Vtech. We have a lot of Vtech products and have been very pleased with them. And a toy that transforms from a car to a dinosaur? Yes, please! I made the mistake of telling my son we'd be getting these and he waited anxiously Every. Single. Day for them to be delivered.
When I pulled the Switch & Go Dinos out of the box, my kids eyes got wide with excitement. I could tell they were gonna love these! We got two dinosaurs -- Silver the T-Rex and Horns the Triceratops.
Landon, who is 5, and Cailyn, who is 8 took them out for a test spin. I have to say they LOVED these! They have been playing with them non-stop. I LOVE how easily they switch from a car to a dinosaur. (I can' tell you how much I hate it when I get toys that my kids can't even operate by themselves!) While in car-mode the LED screen shows a race car driver; in dino-mode it shows a pair of eyes. There are buttons & sounds that make the toys interactive. Even my 2 year old twins love pushing the buttons and making the dinosaur "talk."
I also really love the way these look. I think they are cute toys, both as a car and as a dinosaur. They are available at Amazon for $15.99 each which I think is an exceptional value. Beginning on June 18, the dinos will also be on sale at VTechKids.com for a suggested retail price of $15.99. That's about the price range we use when shopping for friends birthday parties and I think these would make great gifts. They are unique and fun and will keep kids busy for awhile!
Which one do you like best? The T-Rex or the Triceratops?
